Want to be happy and less stressed out? Here are some changes you can make in your mindset that will help you do just that.
Often the cause of our unhappiness, anger and disappointments is the gap between what we hope for and build up expectations of and what we actually receive in our life. Yes, it is important that we have goals. But unfortunately, the only person that we can change is ourselves. So when our goals or our expectations include the actions of another person, we are asking for disappointment. We can state our preference for how others or even Mother Nature behaves or for what happens outside of our own behavior but then we need to let go and accept that what is, IS.
We can plan a picnic and “prefer” that is doesn’t rain. But if it does rain, all we can do is accept the fact and put plan B into action. Of course, we set up a plan B, didn’t we?
Another self-sabotage that causes us much frustration and unhappiness is when we make assumptions. We think we know what another person is thinking or we assume we know what is going to happen next. And 95% of the time our assumptions are completely wrong.
Remember that what your send out into the world is what you are going to get back. Emotions are contagious. Be grouchy and negative and you will find that people will be grouchy and negative to you back. Pretend to be happy and you will actually become happier plus others will respond to you in a happy manner.
Here’s wishing you all great happiness and joy!
