Happy people know how to take make the most of things. They don’t wait for the perfect moment to appear. They learn to make it happen.
Happy people have many differences. However, they also have many similarities: confidence, security and good self-esteem.
All of these people are able to achieve their goals and make radical changes. It could seem that they reach their objectives without much effort. However, nothing could be further from the truth.
How do they get there?
Happy people realize their limitations and work to change them.
In this article, we’ll take a look at some of the lies that happy people never believe.
1. You can’t…
Many times, you say what you want to do out loud and someone says, “You can’t do that.”
Sadly, many people believe this. However, they don’t see that this is a huge lie.
Look around you: Everything you have in life is because someone made it happen.
- If J. K. Rowling had believed that she was unable to write, besides having to live with that, the world wouldn’t have known Harry Potter.
- Ans what if Einstein hadn’t taken his own studies to the next level? The world wouldn’t be the same.
The reality is that you can do a lot of the things you set out to accomplish.
2. But I need to…
Yes, you need to work in order to have money. However, what you don’t need to do is give up on your goals to get this money.
Happy people realize that waiting for the “perfect situation” in order to do something is completely illogical.
Most of the time, all you need to get what you want is to have determination and believe that you can do it.
Most of the things that you think are necessary to achieve your goals only require a little ingenuity.
3. I don’t feel like…
This feeling is the most common one in the world. However, at the same time, it’s an illusion. Sometimes, you feel like a fraud. You might even feel that you’re trying to fill a role that doesn’t belong to you.
Remember: you are your own strength. You need to encourage yourself. Above all, you need to believe in yourself.
We know that you won’t feel well all the time. However, it’s your job to believe in yourself. Never let anyone break your confidence.
When you feel like a fraud, try to figure out what’s going on and where this feeling is coming from.
Remember that a lot of your achievements come from the confidence you have in yourself.
4. I’m too old to…
Don’t let anyone make you believe this. And more importantly, don’t believe it yourself.
Happy people realize that this is one of the biggest lies.
Age is only a number that determines how much time has passed since you were born. Moreover, this isn’t an obstacle that gets bigger with time.
Your age doesn’t matter: you can always change, get better, and reinvent yourself. If someone tells you this, tell them “my age is only a reflection of my opportunities, not my limitations.”
5. It’s easier said than done
Obviously, it will always be easier said than done. Anyone can say what they want or that they dream of thousands of things. However, doing it requires an effort.
What happy people know is that they need to take this step to achieve what they want.
They don’t stop at dreaming. They know that dreams are the foundation for everything they do. However, they are able to do what’s necessary.
6. Control is everything
Happy people accept that they can’t control everything. If they focus their time on controlling what they can, they are able to surprise everyone else.
They realize that it’s a waste of energy and time to want to control everything. Don’t deceive yourself: don’t waste your focus on things you can’t control.
7. Life isn’t fair
This is an enormously large belief. And it throws many people in a depression. Really, life is very fair.
Of course, bad things happen. Everyone, even happy people, need to face this reality. This doesn’t mean that life isn’t fair.
Happy people blindly believe in the justice in life. The understand that pain and suffering are transitional moods. They aren’t determining moods.
Yes, bad things happen. However, life itself is a miracle worthy of being celebrated. And that’s something good.
8. Happy people don’t exist
This common phrase is common. However, it’s false. Yes, happiness exists. And yes, there are people who live happy lives. Believe it. Above all, believe that you deserve it and that you are happy.
We all have the ability to be happy.
Happiness is a right that we all have at birth. However, many times people believe that this isn’t true because they don’t feel good about themselves.
Remember: happiness is a right that you have to claim.
