Let Your Genie Out

Everybody wants to be happy, but if you’re like most people in our society today, you are caught up in the busy, busy, busy, more, more, more culture which drives us and actually leads many to a place where they are unhappy and unfulfilled. We are surrounded and bombarded by negative influences, especially the media. Every time you turn on the television you get hit with bad news: the recession, war, murders, disasters – all dramatised, sensationalised and depressing.

It’s often easy to think this world is not a very good place to be, or that this is not a very good time to be living, but if you look around you can find there are people for whom things are going well: people who have discovered how to be happy, in spite of what appears to be going on around them. The good news for you is that you can be one of them.

There’s an old saying, ‘If you do what you’ve always done, you’ll get what you’ve always got.’ It’s obvious, when you think about it, isn’t it? If you keep doing the same old things, you’ll keep getting the same results. So if you are among the many people who want to be happier, here are the 3 C’s – to help get you on track to the happy life you desire:

  1. Start making different choices. Many people feel they have little choice in the circumstances of their lives, but one aspect where you can have choice is in what you are thinking. Practise more positive thinking and you will feel better.
  2. Get clear about what you really want in life. Everyone is unique and if you just get swept along with the crowd, you will be unhappy. Remind yourself what is truly important in your life and what your heart desires.
  3. Commit to becoming happier. Make that your goal, your intention and start noticing the little, everyday things that do actually make you feel better and feel happier. The more you focus on these, the more you will notice.

Anyone who wants to be happier and lead a more enjoyable or fulfilling life can do that, whatever their current circumstances. Just imagine what your life could be like as you begin making changes. Now is your time to start creating the happier life you really can have.
