7 things to look for if you want more happiness

Those who look for the bad in people will surely find it (Abraham Lincoln). But those who look for the good will just as easily find it too…

…one will lead to dissatisfaction, misery and unhappiness; the other, not surprisingly, will create more positivity and happiness and joy and love. 

So if you want the latter (and let's be honest, who wouldn't want more happiness) then look out for the following 7 things…

  1. the best within yourself. We all have strengths and positive attributes; knowing and using them will benefit you and those around you

  2. the best within others. This is obviously an extention of the previous point and goes to creating better quality relationships, at home and at work

  3. the best in the world around you. Don't be deceived by the night time news. There's no doubt there's trouble and misery in the world but there's also no doubt there are wonderful people doing wonderful things each and every day

  4. Beauty and awesomeness. It's there if you look for it!

  5. Positive solutions to difficult problems. We all face adversity from time to time but those who look for positive outcomes are more likely to feel resilient and happy despite being challenged

  6. Balance and perspective when assessing life. Many troubles are not as bad as they might at first seem and many positives could be appreciated and enjoyed more

  7. Something new each and every day. Happiness comes from learning and loving learning and enjoying the wonders of curiosity and amazement
