HOW TO DISCIPLINE YOURSELF TO BE HAPPY
As I said earlier weigh the reason why you are unhappy and the positive effect you will get when you are happy balance the two and say to yourself, no matter what happens to me in life, no matter the situation I go through in life I must always be cheerful, I must always be happy.
NEVER ASSOCIATE HAPPINESS WITH MATERIAL THINGS
Some people have everything they could ever wish for, but they still find themselves unhappy because they feel a little area of their life is lacking whilst some people’s life have been destroyed by several crisis but they still look back and smile and say to themselves I am still alive despite all odds. This is so because the later has been able to discipline himself towards those things that are supposed to be giving him sleepless nights. Happiness comes from the inside regardless of the possessions you have acquired.
WORRYLESS ABOUT THINGS THAT ARE IMPOSSIBLE TO CHANGE
There are situations in your life that are unchanging one which can be about your physical appearance may be you were born that way. Some people complain about almost everything, and even worry about things that shouldn’t be worried about. Example of which could be; oh! It is too sunny, or its been raining all week, wow! This place is too stuffy and you find them talking and talking and talking about these issues that nothing can be done about, issues that are natural therefore, things that are very impossible to change try as much as possible to discipline yourself on how to let go and be happy.
Some people are in positions where they feel they ought not to be. I will tell you, you must have heard this over and over again, the God that kept you till this day never dozes nor slumber. Always remember people have greater problems than you in this world.
DETACH YOURSELF FROM THINGS THAT KEEPS YOU IN A CONSTANT STATE OF UNHAPPINESS.
85% of our happiness will come from happy relationships with other people. Unfortunately fully 85% of our unhappiness and problems will be associated with other people as well. We let people in and out of our lives but they do not define us.
Zen Buddism teaches that the main causes of human suffering and unhappiness is attachment. People become attached to ideas, opinions materials things and they are reluctant to let go of them.
No 1 rule to happiness, learn to detach yourself from things that can steal your happiness
Is it childlessness? You have been to several hospitals and the doctors are saying you are ok; but yet you have been unable to conceive. You don’t have to think about it for long when there is someone that you can always lean on. Are you presently in a financial crisis? God can always change that situation for you. Detach yourself and run to God. Are you physically challenged? He has always been called the mighty healer, now is the time to run to him.
In the nutshell “nothing” at all should steal your happiness, you deserve to be happy, face it, focus on it, and just be happy.
