Where does happiness come from? Most people would say from situations or events. But that’s not the case. Happiness comes from within. You have to be happy before you can experience happiness.
What I mean by that is, it doesn’t take certain situations to be happy. Happiness comes from inside. You chose to be happy and therefore you experience events, people and situations that allow you to be happy. It’s not the other way around.
Most people only wish to get through a day of work and whatever other situations that they deal with on a daily basis and still feel happy afterwords. They rely on other people and events to bring them happiness. Perhaps they even rely on buying things to fill the void? But the truth is, just like any other goal in life, in order to experience happiness on a daily basis, you have to make the decision to be happy right here, right now. Not tomorrow or the next day! Right now! And by doing so, people, places, events, and situations will start happening in your life that bring about happiness.
It’s the same thing with wealth. Most people think that it takes money to make one wealthy. That couldn’t be further from the truth. It takes being wealthy inside first, and then the material things, such as money, a new house, a nice car, and that big job promotion manifest.
So start being happy in the inside! Start today!! Count all the blessings you do have in your life right now and be happy for them. Once you start doing this you will see that other events start happening in your life that really add to the meaning of happiness.
