The Best Life Hack to be happier

We all pretend we want happiness. And yet, many of us are pessimistic on a daily basis.

We complain all the time. We argue with family members. We gossip with our colleagues, and start rumors in our office.

We get angry at other drivers and sometimes yell at them. We pay no attention to the poor, unhappy and unhappy people in the streets.

“Well, not me!” I do not do it. »

Very good, but why? Because you are human? Well me too.

How I hacked happiness

Look, deep down we all know how to live a happy life. The formula for happiness is actually no secret.

We all know that money, status, fame or respect don't necessarily make us happy. Happiness is a state of mind. It’s something that comes and goes as events dictate.

I'm always honest about these things. Some days I don't feel happy. So I always want more than what I have. When I'm in this state of mind, I like to read news about luck and happiness.

I think this is a universal trait among people who want to perform well. And if you are reading this, you are probably in this category.

It is very likely that you are currently pursuing a goal. But what is it?

Let me guess…

Do you want to buy a house?

Getting a new job? Maybe a promotion?

Do you want to start a business and achieve financial freedom?

Or do you want to grow your business?

Get more followers on social media?

Buy a new car?

Settle ? Have children ?

Go eat at a certain restaurant?

Traveling to a particular country?

The list of human desires is not that long. Most of us aspire to achieve the same things. We are simple beings.

Ingratitude prevents us from being happy

Ingratitude: the main obstacle to happiness

But you know what we are too?

Ungrateful.

Yep, we all are. This is why we show this type of behavior that I mentioned at the beginning of this article.

If you were grateful and happy with what you have, why would you complain?

I don't like to blame anyone. I hate pointing the finger at something or someone and saying, “It’s their fault!” »

But let's be real. We, as a society, are ungrateful little idiots. It's time to change that.

Gratitude is truly the “life hack” you have been looking for for so long.

We all want to wake up filled with happiness. Go to work happy (and stay happy throughout the day). Coming home to a girlfriend/boyfriend/spouse, also filled with happiness, and grateful to you.

Well, you can have all of this… If you are grateful!

And you know how this life hack works? When you are grateful, you will not only feel better, but your entire life will improve.

Don't try to change everyone

Good things come to those who appreciate what they have. No one said it better than Oprah Winfrey:

“Be grateful for what you have: you will eventually have more. If you focus on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough.”

Conversely, when you don't appreciate what you have or what people do for you, you become bitter and resentful.

You push away positive people. And you will only surround yourself with a bunch of other ungrateful people.

If you ask me, this is the best way to have a life far from all happiness.

“What if the people in my life are ungrateful? »

Try to explain to them why gratitude is important. But don't try to convince them more than necessary, because some people never listen. We only change ourselves when we have the desire to change.

Just look at how this whole self-improvement process works. No one changes their life just because of an article. No, you change because you have a desire. And an article, book or video can serve as a spark.

Sometimes you can also get help. Coaching, support groups or hypnosis sessions are all less likely to trigger self-healing processes. Take this type of hypnosis to combat eating disorders for example: in a treatment process, it can be of precious help.

However, I can write millions of articles but some people will never change, even if it is to obtain more happiness in their life.

Unfortunately, I have had to observe this more than once in my career. For some people, even the most effective lucky charms will have no effect.

In reality, some people have such a low level of vitality that they do not see the need for change.

For them, other ideas can be considered, typically energy working techniques like those discussed on this site.

Some people keep us from happiness

Moving away from certain people: essential for your happiness

My last relationship didn't work out because my girlfriend wasn't grateful for the things I could bring to her life. We were too different.

She changed somewhat during the time we spent together. But still, we had too different visions of the world and how to achieve happiness.

There is a price to pay for living life the way we want. Most people don't have a philosophy of life. This also comes at a price.

Personally, I will not deviate from my core values ​​for anyone. It is best to find people who share the same values ​​as you.

It is a waste of your resources (time, energy, etc.) to try to influence others to change for the better. In fact, it's downright naive, and it could well taint your happiness.

Look, I don't take this lightly. The quality of your own life is at stake.

Yes, I give my neighbor a helping hand when he needs it... But I don't let ungrateful people interfere in my life. I became distant from family and friends because of this.

I could see them from time to time if I wanted. But I no longer have any connection with them. Some people will only drag you down. Whereas you should rather go up.

Final tips

Life is beautiful. Treat every meal you eat like the best meal you've ever had. Appreciate the kind people in your life. Tell them thank you.

Remember, they might NOT do what they do for you. So, no matter what it is, reciprocate with as much gratitude as possible, so that they too can claim your happiness

And above all, appreciate where you are in life. Thank your parents for being there for you. And if they're not there, thank them for turning you into an independent adult.

When they get older, take care of them and, when you too enter old age, be attentive to your health and that of your loved ones. As such, there are dozens of tips that we could give to elderly people but, as this is not our subject of the day, here is the site Aging Well Living, which will provide some for us.

In all my years of reading and studying the best way to navigate our lives, I have never seen anything that has had a greater impact on the quality of our lives than gratitude.

Consider this life hack on happiness your secret. No need to tell others about it.

For some people, nothing is ever good enough, no matter what they have. On the other hand, others have no expectations and enjoy everything that happens to them.

Avoid the first type of person. Cherish the last.
