10th October 2010 today's facebook email

You can motivate players better with kind words than you can with a whip. Bud Wilkinson

Out of the 7 dwarves Happy would be my favourite ;-) can you name the other six? Don’t google it until you try and remember them! And if you really want to know right now, I’ve written them at the bottom of this email!

Even the word happy brings a smile to my face, it’s the main ambition I have in my life because I’ve noticed if I’m happy good things happen by default.

So can you decide to be happy regardless of what’s happening in your life? Many of the experts say that being happy is a choice; that it’s a decision you make every morning, that it’s possible to say ‘today I am going to be happy’. But why is it that some people seem to find it easier to have that inner contentment and others struggle to put a smile on their face? If you ask people there does seem to be certain themes that are repeated: People feel happy when they have a fulfilling relationship, a career they love, great health and energy and a variety of interests.

Often those people also have a positive attitude to life and they see challenges as opportunities to learn and grow. Following are some suggestions that could help you experience more joy and happiness in your life.

Start to value yourself - treat yourself the way you would treat the most important person in your life. To be happy you need to learn to appreciate, be kind and loving to yourself. If you make a mistake, forgive yourself, hell you won’t be the first person that’s done the same or similar. Think of challenges and mistakes as opportunities to learn and move on. When you experience success, however small, celebrate it (refer back to yesterday’s email)

Commit yourself to happiness - Make a commitment to be happy. Recognise that you can choose to be happy and regularly affirm to yourself that happiness is your right. Spend some time discovering what makes you happy and then make these things a priority. Time is precious and so are you!

Be open-minded as it can expose you to wonderful new opportunities and give you a unique outlook on life. You can find solutions to many stressful situations and maintain a state of internal happiness if you have the flexibility to consider new things and embrace change.

Look after your health as it is much easier to feel happy when you have great health and vitality than when you are feeling ill. It is important to pay attention to your body and treat it with respect. If you are feeling very tired, give yourself time out. If you are stressed, relax and meditate. Make sure that you have a good diet and an exercise program that you enjoy. Spending time in nature is another great way to relax and revive.

Keep your sense of humor, learn to laugh at yourself and find humour in testing situations. Life is full of challenges and if you take them too seriously it is easy to become frustrated and depressed. It is important to develop a sense of humor and to see the quirkiness of life.

Believe in the power of laughter. Think about it how do you know that a person is happy? The obvious signs are when they are smiling or laughing. Someone who laughs a lot simply keeps the channels to happiness open.

Appreciate the lucky charm of happiness - being happy is like having a lucky charm, which attracts people to us, helps us handle challenges and embrace opportunities. Happy people appreciate what they have, get more done quickly, live longer, have better health, attract great relationships and enjoy their lives more.

Remember life starts now?

Are you living yet?

You’re not alive unless your living!
