Are You Happy?
by: Tanna Phares

Have you actually ever given this question some thought? If you had to answer sincerely, could you say yes? Let’s discuss what authentic happiness is and how to be happy in life always.

I believe that finding happiness and maintaining this feeling as a constant in our life is directly linked to our personal fulfillment. If we are avid in pursuing our own personal growth and development then we will experience authentic happiness. The problem is that most of allow ourselves to get stuck in the daily grind, to respond to life rather than to create it. We let others make decisions for us and think we must settle for mediocrity and dissatisfaction.

This is a myth! We do not need to settle or resign our life to its present course. We have the ability to make decisions, to choose, to reason, to follow our heart. If you truly want to find happiness then you must take charge of your life, begin to create instead of respond and work on improving your personal growth and development.

Happy people are go-getters. Happy people are constantly seeking personal fulfillment. Happy people know how to be happy in life regardless of circumstances because they choose to focus on the positive, the opportunity in every situation. Happy people do not dwell on the negative, on the “coulda”, “woulda”, “shoulda’s”. Happy people resolve to push forward and move on, always seeking good.

One of the best and easiest ways to sustain authentic happiness is to continually be working on yourself, on your personal growth and development. Push yourself to do more, to be more. Set goals and work towards them. Read books on subjects you have a desire to be familiar with. Read biographies and autobiographies about people you admire. Learn how to cook. Start an extreme workout program and push your body to the limit. Stimulate your mind. These are all ways to develop your personal fulfillment.

Those seeking authentic happiness and who sincerely want to know how to be happy in life should be in a constant state of learning and growing. It’s been said that we are happiest while in the midst of actively pursuing a goal or a dream. It’s true. Give it a try. Today, right now, begin to work on your personal growth and development. Set a goal, take that first step towards realizing a dream. Nothing is impossible when you set your mind to it. Remember, we are intelligent beings, gifted with reason, intellect, freedom to choose, desires to pursue. We are born with these traits for a purpose, to use them. Do not settle. Do not lose yourself in the grind. Stop reacting to what life throws at you; take the reigns and decide how you want your life to be and what type of a person you wish to be.

If you are serious about wanting to be happy in life then you must start living your life for you, always with the intention of making the world a better place and making your life better. Follow your heart and your personal desires, authentic happiness will have no choice but to follow.
