There are many ways for people to be happy, but its seems that in life we tend to do things that make us unhappy instead. We go for unrelealistic goals, we do things that make us happy in the short run but make us unhappy in the long run. We awlays look elsewhere for what we consider to make us happy instead of the beautiful god creation that we see in the mirror.

There really is no secret to happiniess as we are all different but a few tips may help you realise that happiness starts with you from the inside out

Here what we’d like to share with with you. here are 17 timeless secrets of happy people:

1. Forget the past

One of the keys to unhappiness is a bad memory.
You won’t be happy if you carry the burden of the past. Did you make mistakes? Did you have terrible experiences? Whatever they are, let them go. There’s nothing you can do about the past, but you can start buidling a better future

2. Take responsibility for your life

To be happy you should have freedom and the most essential freedom is the freedom to choose. No matter how bad a situation is, you can always choose how you respond to it. Freedom to choose requires the courage to take responsibility for your life. You shouldn’t blame someone else when something goes wrong. Take the responsibility and you have the power to choose.

3. Build relationships

Relationships is where we can get true happiness in life. The reason is simple: only through relationships can we love and be loved. Make relationships your top priority and you are on your way to true happiness. Sometimes a relationship ends but another starts so its never the end.

4. Develop multiple passions

Passions lead you to happiness. So not only should you discover you passions in life, you should also expand yourself to new passions. This way you will create new ways to happiness. The key to expanding to new passions is curiosity. If you are curious, you will have an endless stream of exciting things waiting for you.

5. Build your character

Building your character is essential for happiness. When you are true to yourself and others, you will be in peace.
The way to start building character is by making promises and keeping them. For example, you make promise to yourself that you won’t smoke. When you keep it, you are building your character. Or you make promise to others to be punctual. When you keep it, you build your character. Thats when others will notice that postive change in you.

6. Be who you are

You can only be happy if you become who you are. Don’t live other people’s life by trying to meet their expectations. People may expect you to have a certain job or certain way of living but don’t be intimidated by them. Find who you are and be yourself.

7. Work creatively

When you work creatively on something you will find happiness. There is a well-known phenomenon regarding this called flow. When you are in the state of flow, you are fully focused on the task at hand that you no longer realize the constant energy flowing from you. This state of flow allows you to achieve high productivity and being happy at the same time.

8. Count your blessings

Being happy is easy if we are grateful. Unfortunately, seeing what we don’t have is often easier than seeing what we have. Sometimes we need to experience loss before appreciating what we have. So don’t take things for granted. Look at what you have and soon you will have plenty of reasons to be happy. You may start with these simple things.

Its the small things

This is very true. Often it’s not big things that makes us happy but the small things. But how easy we forget that we are breathing, healthy, have a roof over our heads, a future we can change or excell, our friendship, our family.if you think about these are not small at all but we do forget how lucky we are an become unhapppy if we do not live out our dream life.

10. Change

Being happy requires you to constantly grow. In fact, the process of learning itself is essential for happiness. Have you ever felt the excitement of being enlightened about something? Have you ever felt the excitement of achieving a new level in life or or turning a new page.

Remember Happines is something that you can seek out for yourself no matter what is going on around you and a good place to start looking is close by in you.
