These 3 Life-Changing Lessons Will Make You Happier

We think we know what make us happy, but we often are wrong. Happiness is a choice and we can all be happy if we want to be or more importantly if we know how to be happy.

The University of Atlanta has collected thoughts and information from several happiness experts, researchers and psychologists about what makes people happy and we have prepared the following life-changing lessons through which all of us can be happy and live a fulfilling life.

What pleases all may not make you happy

Everyone is different and what makes everyone happy may not bring you happiness. You need to realize this and should stop looking up to everyone for your happiness. You need to embrace the concept of human diversity and find your own thing that makes you happy. Keep looking and you will find your true way to happiness.

Being grateful will make you happy

Most of the time, it is expected that once people are happy that happiness makes them grateful but in reality it is the other way around. Being grateful for what you have will make you happy and how can you be grateful? You can be grateful for all the gifts that you have in your life. For example you have access to the life’s most basic need i.e. clean drinking water, whereas according to the United Nations 783 million people around the world don’t have that, so be grateful you are not one of them.

Money, Fame and Success are not tied to happiness

You should stop running blindly after money, fame and success to be happy as psychologists have proved that we humans have a defense mechanism installed in our brains that make us happy with the lives we have, whether we are rich, famous, successful or not. You will not be miserable if you didn’t get what you wanted or if the things didn’t go according to plan because we have the capacity to manufacture the one thing that we constantly chase throughout our lives and that’s happiness.

At the University of Atlanta, we believe that happiness is a matter of choice and only you can make yourself happy. Don’t forget to follow us on FacebookGoogle Plus , Pinterest and Twitter to find more interesting reads.
