Do you know why it is important to bring you closer to happiness? To become a better person or to become happier? Let's hope they are both.
One of the most important things you need to realize when you are in a search for self-development is that happiness is not something other people bring to you as a birthday gift. Happiness comes from what you do. It comes from acting according to your own moral values in a way that brings you closer to your personal goals.
Here are 7 steps to bring you closer to happiness
1. Know your purpose
Wander into life in a small direction – hoping to find happiness, health and well-being?
Identify the purpose of your life or mission statement and you will have your own unique compass that will lead you to your true north at a time.
This may seem difficult at first when you see yourself in a tight corner or face a dead end. But determining your purpose will help you find the way out, even when there seems to be no one.
2. Know your values
What do you value most? Make a list of the top 5 prices. Some examples are security, freedom, family, intellectual development, learning.
As you set your goals for the year, check your goals from your values.
If a goal is not in line with any of your top five pricing, you may want to review it or review it.
3. Get to know your needs
Unfulfilled needs can keep you from living truly. Take care of yourself. Do you need to recognize, to hear, to eat, to love in a way that is not being observed at the moment?
There are so many people who live their lives without realizing their dreams and most of them end up stressing or even depressing.
List your first five needs and create your thoughts on how you could satisfy them. It's never too late!
4. Know your passions
You know who you are and what you really enjoy in life. Obstacles such as doubt and lack of excitement can prevent you, but you do not have to prevent you from becoming the person you ought to be.
Express yourself and honor the people who inspired you to become who you are.
5. Live from the inside
Increase the awareness of your inner wisdom by regularly reflecting in silence. Commune with nature. Breathe deeply to relax your distant mind. For most of us city poles, it is difficult to find the peace and quiet that we even want in our home.
You can choose to meditate, walk in a quiet place or sit down and listen to soft music. Silence does not necessarily mean any sound, but requires a certain inner silence.
6. Honor your strengths
What are your positive attributes? What special talents do you have? Record five of them – if you stick, ask your closest friends to help you. Are you imaginative, witty, good with your hands?
Find ways to express your authentic self through your powers. You can increase your self-esteem when you recognize your skills and use them to teach or share with others.
7. Servicing others
When you live authentically, you may find that you feel that you are connected to all life styles. When you are true to what you are, living your purpose and giving your talents to the world around you, you express your spirit, your essence.
At the same time, you are able to connect with the basic good to others. At this point, the service of others is no longer inappropriate.
We can not change others. We can only change ourselves to live more peacefully and happily in the circumstances of our lives. That is why self-development has such a huge reward for us as well as for those around us. I hope these steps will bring you closer to happiness
