The Happiness Strategy
"The secret to having it all is expecting that you will." ~Author Unknown
Authentically happy people use specific strategies that allow them to feel empowered in creating what they want in their lives. They have great confidence that whatever they desire is achievable, and all they need to do is wake up today with a plan to create the life they want. They expect to make each new day the best day possible, one filled with joy and fun. They create each day from a foundation of gratitude and love, expressed through their thoughts, words and actions in each and every moment. They learn to make love and gratitude part of their daily routine. This is the foundation for making magic happen in our life!
Remember, we always create what we expect and focus on. So… what do you expect when you wake up each morning?
Each day, it's so important to set a tone for your day with thanks, in advance, for what you desire. For example:
Do you wake up focused on feeling well rested and energized?
Do you wake up expecting and believing that today is the best day of your life?
Do you wake up with gratitude on your mind for what you already have?
Do you wake up expecting that your spouse or partner, friend, or colleague is going to treat you with respect, always speaking with kind words?
Do you wake up with focus and belief that your new client appointment is going to turn into a sale, or you’re going to get an A on your exam?
Do you expect that you will feel physically well today?
Do you specifically focus on a day full of FUN, integrated into each and every moment and activity you have planned?
Remember, you always create what you expect, so be sure to focus your mind on what you truly want.
How do your turn your expectations into reality?
Picture in your mind what it is that you want, play that picture over and over and over again, and focus on how good it feels to have it. Repetition and the attached feelings are the key. As you tell yourself a new story, and repeatedly put a new picture in your mind, your brain develops a new neural pathway, creating new expectations. The more we repeat it, the faster we create it. As we repeat it, we begin to believe it more and more, until we feel a sense of knowing. That knowing comes from calm.
As you know, we create everything in our lives by the way we feel. When we feel good, we create what we want. When we feel love and gratitude, we automatically become calm. And calmness is the key to creating what we desire.
In other words, we can only create what we want consistently when we are consistently calm. We are letting it happen, as we are in the flow of good feelings. We feel confident, and know that our power comes from love and gratitude. When we take action from this place of calm and knowing (also known as patience) it is truly inspired, and always most appropriate and effective.
So, start by feeling good! Put a clear picture in your mind of what you want to create right now, stay calm, and expect and trust that you are going to create just that. As you do, know that you have the power to create your life in any way that you want it to be!
Then, just imagine what is waiting for you as you begin to tap into even more of that power of your mind, which starts with being authentically happy. You can grow and change in ways you never expected. You can realize the life you truly desire! And it all comes from the love, gratitude, and fun that creates greater and greater levels of calm.
