Have you ever wondered what all those successful, happy people do to make their lives so amazing? Well, I’ve dedicated the last four years of my life to chase happiness and create a life around my dreams. During this journey, I figured it takes five things to build a successful life and find happiness in the everyday. And I will tell you how everyone, you and I can use those five tools to create happiness and be successful in life no matter how success might look for you.
Are you ready to transfer your life to the better? Okay let’s get to it.
Here are is your strategy to success.
5 everyday tools to a successful and happy life
1. Know what you want
The first tool you need to create your own happiness is knowing what you want. If you don’t know what is important to you or what you want in life you hardly know what to work towards.
So, figure out what you want. What are your standards? What is important to you? What do you need to be happy?
Success is different for everybody so to create your own happy life you need to figure out what it is that makes you happy.
Do not hesitate to take on a different path than everyone else. Sometimes to find true happiness we need to go off the path and swim against the storm.
You are unique and so is your life, so do not let anyone tell you how you should live it.
Rather take other people’s lives as inspiration and motivation to create your own best life.
Creating success in your life doesn’t go without prioritizing. I know there are a million awesome ways in which you could spend your life and I’m sure every single one of them will bring you happiness. And while of cause you can use many years to do widen your skillset and expand your horizon, at some point you have to prioritize and choose the areas you want to focus on.
You can do anything you want but you cannot do everything. You need to make a choice on what you want to focus to really get the most out of it. Also in the long run, it won’t make you happy to try to do many things at the same time because you will always have the feeling of never giving 100% in one thing and that will lead to dissatisfaction.
So, make this choice and prioritize on those things that really matter to you and of which you know they will bring you the greatest happiness.
Also know that what might be priority for someone else must not be priority for you. It’s okay if you have your focus somewhere else. We are all unique so don’t try to like something you don’t or don’t try to live someone else’s life just because you feel you have to. You don’t.
3. Focus (on one thing at a time)
Once you set your priorities, focus on them. Dedicate all your time, energy and money to it. Improve, learn, fail and succeed in that area. Practice curiosity and expand your skillset. But only do one thing at a time.
Coming from a generation where multitasking is habit I know that to really be successful in doing something you have to focus on just doing one thing. Otherwise you will always only be half there and you can’t use your full potential and the outcome will only be half as good or quarter as good, depending on how many things you do at once.
In addition, being completely there when you do something can help you enjoy the process of it even more, which then will again bring you more happiness.
4. Live in the now
Like I always say, you only have this one life, so make it count. Enjoy every single moment of it. Embrace the good and the bad and start loving life with all its up and downs.
Enjoy creating happiness rather than always thinking of what could be. Live in the now and appreciate your current stage of life. Everything else will follow.
5. Slow down and breath
Creating a life full of happiness can be exhausting, especially in such a fast living society we live in. So, take your time, slow down and breath. Take a break when you feel like it. Start being mindful and practice gratitude for the things that you have already that bring you joy while you are working towards greater happiness.
Slow down and take time for the important things in your life. Reflect on yourself and your journey and discover how amazing life is. Learn to see and love the little things and find joy in every action you take towards your happiest life.
You see, it takes very little to live a successful and happy life. All you need to do is adapt a Mindset towards growth and find those things that make you happy.
Of cause, there are many more things you can do to create happiness in your life and if you want more then keep following my blog and Social Media, as I made it my purpose to help people find and create their own happiness.
