Can there be a formula to happiness?
Not sure if there’s a universal one, but I’d like to share my ultimate happiness formula.
It goes like this: only do the things that make you happy and bring joy to your life! If you have to do something you don’t enjoy (let’s face it, we sometimes have to do the things that are not so pleasurable), then you have these two options:
1) Don’t do it. Get someone else to do it for you, or skip this task completely
2) Change your attitude towards the thing that you have to do, and do it with joy!
Hate your job? Create a plan how you can change it. Don’t like doing the laundry? Get someone else to do it for you, or change your attitude towards the task. For example, put on the loud music, sing, dance and have a blast while doing it!
You’re in control of your life, and deserve to live it the way you want. That’s your innate right.
You might have a resistance towards this idea. I can almost hear you saying: “But you don’t understand, maybe it’s easy for you. But you don’t know my situation, I’ve got to do x, y, z that I hate and there’s no way to go around it!”
But let me ask you: How did you get into this situation? Has someone forced you into it?
Just be honest with yourself. You have a free will and can always change your situation. Be brave, you can do it! And it’s going to be worth it.
I understand that not everyone will resonate with this idea, and that’s fine. I’m not here to convince you or disabuse you of your own beliefs. I’m here to share inspiration with those, who long for a change and are ready to improve their lives.
So the next time you feel the resistance towards doing something, ask yourself: What can I do to avoid this task? Or, how can I do it and enjoy myself?
The action of asking yourself these questions makes an instant shift in your attitude. And you’ll be nicely surprised by the answers that will pop in your head.
This ultimate happiness formula has helped me design the life that I so passionately love. If it inspires you too, leave a comment below, telling what you’re gonna do the next time you feel resistance towards doing something!
