Do you know that some of your daily activities can waste your energy? What is exactly influencing on our happiness? All of us have 24 hours per day and all of us wake up with energy in the morning. But some of us use this energy very productively during the day, while some of us just waste it. Your results at the end of the day depend just on you and your productivity.
Everybody would like to be happy. It is very important for each of us to consume our daily energy just for ourselves. We should get some great results out of it, not just waste it on some people with negative influence.
In fact, you are working daily to attain a happy life, which is so different for every person. I wish you to be happy and to have a happy life as you dream of. I can’t tell you the formula which will make you a happy person because each of us receives and feels happiness from different things. Therefore, I collected 12 practices which will help you to grow your energy, fill you with positivity and motivate you to achieve your dreams.
- Help others, but don’t forget to take care of yourself.
As a good person, you would like to help your friends, colleagues, relatives and close people when they need you. While helping them, you should remember that you need to receive your reward for your help too. At least some kind of gratitude, or maybe some self-rewarding for your work. Positive energy, in this case, is your reward. We should feel happiness, usefulness, thankfulness and good feelings from our help. What is the reason to help someone if this doesn’t bring you back anything good? If other people ask you to help them so often and you don’t receive back any positive energy from your help, then you don’t have time to receive energy from the things that you enjoy. So you will not have enough inner power to move up, to improve, or to achieve things which are important for you personally.
- Keep your promises.
You should be responsible for your words, especially for your promises. Better not to promise at all, than to promise and not be able to keep it. If you want to have respect from people, you should respect them too. Keeping your promises is one type of respecting them. If you promise something but you don’t keep your promise, then there will be no difference between you and a liar. Be honest, respect people and you will receive the same back.
- Don’t refuse when somebody asks for your help.
When you help somebody with something, you receive some kind of gratitude. Thankfulness by itself brings you a very strong positive energy. It is the source of self-confidence, more energy and power.
- Try not to give any advice when people don’t ask for it.
Often we want to help people and give them some advice on how they should act in some particular situation. What if it doesn’t work out? What would happen after? You will not receive anything positive from it, and you will waste your energy. You might also get blamed for it. It is not possible to learn something from somebody else’s mistakes. Everybody have their own life, and there is no guarantee that your advice will help in that particular situation.
- Live this moment.
That energy which you have today, you should consume it today. Try to live today, not with your memories from yesterday, nor with your dreams for tomorrow. The best you can do for yourself is to live the present. Enjoy your life today! Feel it! Live it!
- Don’t be annoying.
Talk when people are ready to listen to you. Visit people when they are happy for your visit. Attend events which are interesting for you. In other cases, you will just waste your energy and receive zero results. Better to use your energy for something useful, rather than just to waste it when you can avoid wasting it.
- Perceive positivity in every situation.
Try to see positivity in every situation. Learn to always see some positivity in any outcome. Even when you fail, you learn from your own experience. In hard situations, you should see an opportunity for self-improvement, so you will stop wasting your energy and keep moving forward.
- Don’t judge others.
The habit of judging others is a sign of understated self-esteem. Another important fact is that, when we criticize somebody, they can have some negative reaction, thus we receive some negative energy back.
- Don’t take credit for somebody else’s achievement.
Be respectful of other people’s work and time. Be honest with people and with yourself. Treat people the same way you would like to be treated.
- Don’t give advices if you didn’t try them before.
If somebody asks you for some advice, be careful to only give the advice works and helps. Don’t give an advice just to give. If you want people to respect you and trust your word, do your best to share with them valuable information. My personal rule is that I never advise something if I didn’t try it before and if I am not 100% sure that it will work and it will help.
- Do not get too attached to things.
It is good to be attached to something like your home city, your job, your house… But you are not a tree, you should move when it’s time to move on, and when the move will help you to improve. Your life continuously changes as different new situations can occur. If you are single, you can get married. You can get a great job offer in a new city or country. Be ready to take decisions and leave your comfort zone. Comfort zone is good, very comfortable, you know it pretty well, but you might be very limited there and you might not be able to achieve anything big there. If you want to have greater results, you might need to go out of your comfort zone. You must keep moving and keep learning something new.
- Don’t tell people about your plans.
Be careful when you share your dreams and your plans with people. Sometimes people’s input, comments, different intellectual level or even their envying can discourage you and kill your passion to realize your plans and dreams. The best way is to show them your results. I am writing this and I believe in it, but this part is the hardest for me. Actually, I think it is hard for everybody, especially women, to keep things inside, and keep themselves from telling others about their plans or dreams.
I am happy to share with you these 12 practices for a happier life. I hope they will help you to achieve tremendous results in your life. If you have any questions or suggestions, let’s discuss them in the comments below.
Wishing you a very happy life!
