I am not here to tell you that the route to happiness is an easy one. I am not here to tell you that it is a line that progressively increases, because it definitely isn’t. If it were to be graphed, then it’ll look like swirls of lines, similar to when you have a necklace all tangled up. But in the end, you somehow find a way to untangle that necklace that seemed impossible to untangle in the beginning. In saying this, the route to happiness really depends on the stage that you at.
The first steps in achieving your happiness is to understand yourself. It is important to understand yourself, to understand what really makes you happy and what happiness means to you. Everyone has a different perception when it comes to happiness, some people may think that a million dollars will make them happy, whereas there are other people out there who are happy knowing that they will have 3 meals a day without the need to worry. Don’t ever let anyone influence what happiness means to you. This is important, because you might be chasing this one goal in life because someone told you that it is what everyone wants and that if they had it they would be so happy and fulfilled – but when you achieve that goal you’re going to realise how this whole time you have actually wasted it chasing someone else’s goal, someone else’s happiness. So first step to being on the right route to happiness is to truly understand what makes YOU happy and what is the one thing in YOUR life that YOU would love to achieve because YOU truly believe that it will bring you happiness. Once you have figured this out, write it down.
Once you have figured out what makes you happy, it really does become a lot easier.
Without a goal or mission, you will be lost and to achieve that goal becomes a lot more difficult than if you had a plan or a clear vision. This is your first step to attaining happiness.
