Today, I want to share with you, 5 Ways You Might Be Sabotaging Yourself From Being Truly Happy
What if I told you that there is only one person in this world who can hold you back from being truly happy?
This person I am describing is powerful. This person has all the capabilities and all the tools or resources needed to prevent anyone from the happiness that they deserve.
Who is this person then?
Is this person a member of some sort of top organization?
Is this person in possession of some sort of advanced technology?
Does this person have some special secret skills or awesome training that enable them to make you totally miserable at the drop of a hat?
Well, here’s a hint. This person writes his or her name this way:
That’s correct. You’re the only person in this world who can prevent yourself from being truly happy, content and having fulfilled life. Maybe you’re doing it right now. As you read this, you’re holding yourself back in life.
If you’re still unclear, here are 5 ways you might be sabotaging yourself from being truly happy.
You Wait for Certain Things to Happen Before You Decide to Be Truly Happy
Have you ever thought that, if something happens, then you will be happy?
Or if you buy this thing, then you will be truly happy?
Or if you meet this person, then you know you will be truly happy?
Come on, you can be honest. You can say it. There’s nobody looking at you as you read this.
Here’s the real spoiler, all of us have thought along these lines at some in time. It’s simple to fall into this one of these traps. Sadly, if this becomes a habit, happiness becomes very difficult to come across indeed.
We’re always desperately collecting things, hoarding, grasping to get people into our lives.
It really is quite sad because we feel that we have to wait for things to be just perfect. We have to work in the meantime to make that appear.
But little do we know, it’s already right here, in front of our noses. Sadly, we neglect to see it.
You Believe Possessions Make You Happy
Do you believe that when somebody drives up in a £100,000 car right next to somebody with a £5,000 car?
Does the person in the more affordable car is, somehow, someway, inferior to the person in a more expensive car?
Again, feel free, to be honest.
Automatically, we assume that if something costs £500,000, then somebody who possesses that is in a much better position. Then I ask, who is a more worthy person than the person who can afford much less or more.
You can’t automatically assume that just because somebody can afford something that’s expensive that this person is more worthy, more valuable, more deserving of your respect, more deserving of your love.
We start believing that possessions make us worthy, and by extension, make us happy.
In fact, according to a fairly recent psychological research study, people do attain a sense of happiness when they buy more stuff.
Something to think about for you.
You Let Others Define Happiness For You
It’s easy for people whom you think you know and admire to fundamentally call the shots as far as your values are concerned. Soon enough, you start seeing at the world through their lenses.
We tend to do this with our parents. You have to define it yourself. You have to make your way.
Instead, we’re living our lives based on other people’s expectations. It’s as if we’re just going through the motions.
Then you wonder why you’re not happy?
Then you have the nerve to complain that you’re not fulfilled?
Well, pay attention to the pattern that you have selected for yourself because it is a choice.
You Think Happiness Happens to You
As the old saying goes, there are two types of people:
People who make things happen, and people who sit around and ask “what happened?”
Which one are you?
You have to realise that happiness and fulfilment are choices. In other words, you have to take the initiative. You have to call the shots. You have to make the choices.
It’s not something that somebody hands over to you. It’s not something that somebody owes you. It doesn’t work that way. It doesn’t come from outside of you, conclusively. It’s your choice.
You Refuse to Enjoy the Things Going Right in Your Life
If you are not careful, you will develop a habit where you don’t really focus on the things that are going right.
You don’t focus on the reality that you have a roof over your head. There is no food on the table or that nobody breaks into your front door to rob or kill you.
Instead, you focus on the stuff that’s missing. Maybe you’re not a member of a club. Maybe your car is 12 years old.
Whatever the case may be, you focus on the stuff that is missing in life. That’s where you feel your happiness comes from. Understand how this works because this is a choice.
Are You Tired of Making the Wrong Choices that Keep You From Being Happy?
If any of the discussions above apply to you, it really all boils down to the choices you are making.
I’ve got some great news. You don’t have to ride that train. You don’t have to wake up day after day and make the same decisions that you did the previous day that made you less than truly happy. You can do something about it.
The best part?
You are fully in control of this decision. You already have the answers locked within your mind. You only need to commit to unlocking it.
This doesn’t involve drugs, this doesn’t involve any sort of religion, mysticism or philosophy, nor does it involve some sort of cult mind control. Forget all about that. Instead, it involves your choices in the here and now.
