Turning your life into one that exudes happiness
A few of us are not so sure, mainly because we are women and we have things to go to after work which require our hair to be "beautiful". Rain is not conducive of that.
Randomly, I pick up two tennis rackets from my office and a whole heap of balls and then grab Lisa O'Keeffe, and we start playing tennis in the middle of the office. Firstly, you have to have an office big enough - which we have, and secondly, you have to be prepared for anything to happen. Broken computer screens, lights, dints in walls, people being hit - in general chaos. But what is the worse that can happen? Someone gets hurt? How hurt would you become from a tennis ball? I pinch of pain never hurt anyone, or at least that is what we all agreed.
The office dog, Pippa, even got into action with a ball hitting her bottom. She didn't squeal. She thought it was fun.
For an hour or so, we played each other in the office, or at least those who were game enough for the unknown to happen.
I embraced this. It actually made my day.
I woke up this morning to a persistent troll on social media, which upset me. I had a sleepless night as U.S. telemarketers decided to ring in the middle of the night, just to ensure I didn't sleep through the entire night. Yesterday I drove 8 hours to a client meeting (4-hours each way), which was a great meeting but quite tiresome.
When I arrived in the office, I felt cold. It's winter and they haven't quite got the airconditioning thing working in the best order. Building issues that are out of our control.
A staff member wasn't feeling the best. I feel for her. She has a cold. Another has a few things on her mind. Once again, I just want to give her a big hug.
I am a little behind, and I really need to be in Sydney, not Melbourne.
Life is a little chaotic. Personally, my glass is half full. I like to think on the positive side of things and believe that anything and everything is possible. I believe that all my dreams will come true, but I might have to work a little harder, sacrifice a few things or be prepared to change it up. All good things really.
There is a correlation between happiness and success. Success isn't money. It is how you feel and how content you are with your lot in life.
If you're not happy, you're not successful - as they say.
So, if for whatever reason, you are not happy. Maybe things are not going quite as planned or you have been dealt a few difficult cards, don't fear. You can and will turn that around in no time if you believe in yourself and roll up your sleeves.
Here are 5 things that will turn your life around:
- Believe anything is possible and it will be. If you manifest happiness and success, it somehow happens. The universe hears you. A girlfriend of mine a few months ago told me that on a plane flight she manifested something and said the words over and over again in her head. When she arrived it happened. So, I tried it. I did the same on a flight to New York about 5 weeks ago, and you wouldn't believe it - within 24 hours, the same thing happened to me. Beforehand, I thought all of this manifestation stuff was a load of crap.
- Be super-duper kind. The kinder you are and the more generous you are, the happier you will be. Even if not everyone appreciates it, the fact that you are doing it and you know deep down inside that you are doing it for the right reasons, you will feel content and contentment means happiness.
- Change your energy. When someone has a huge obstacle in life like someone dies, or a relationship ends, it's hard to be happy. Picking yourself up from this situation can take months or even years. For some, it's a lifetime. Don't waste away life. Life happens whether we are ready for it or not. Sometimes we think that we are getting a raw deal, and it's hard to cope, but you know what? It's just life. If everything was always the same, we would be bored. How do you create energy? Surround yourself with positive people. Exercise and push yourself to do things that you would not normally do, just so that it places you outside your comfort zone.
- Be kind to yourself. Look in the mirror and like yourself. Don't look in the mirror and wish you can change things about yourself. Instead, embrace what god has given you and celebrate what is between your ears. If you fail at something, instead of giving yourself a hard time, celebrate it. Remember, every successful person fails - and usually often. Pamper yourself; get a massage, facial or go to a spiritual healer.
- Tap into your resilience. This is harder than it sounds. Being mentally strong is harder than it sounds. It's like blocking out the noise and only dealing with the real issues. No-one choose to not be mentally strong, and in this day and age, it seems that less of us are coping with everyday life. There are so many powerful ways you can tap into your resilience and find solance by looking at things differently, not taking things personally and seeing the positive and not the negative.
