How to Be Happy – Video


How to Be Happy

This video teaches you how to be happier right now, so that you can start enjoying  better relationships, better health, more success and a longer life, all from learning how to be happier.  It shows you how you can be happier without anything else changing in your life.

The premise of this video is that happiness is natural to us. It is already inside of us waiting to be released. We only have to turn our attention to it. Like a light switch, we only have to learn to turn it on, and keep it turned on.

Real happiness does not depend on the circumstances of your life. You can be happier, right now, without anything changing in your life. If everything in your life is going great, you can be happy. If everything in your life is going wrong, you can be happy. Rich, poor, old, young, male, female, blue-collar, white-collar, pink-collar, no-collar, you can be happy.

Learning to be happy may be the most important thing we can do in life. It may even be the purpose in life. What psychologists have found is that compared to those who are not happy, happy people have better relationships and better health, they are more successful, and they live longer.

Children are born happy, and we expect see them playing and being happy. We do not expect so much happiness when we leave childhood. However, the power to be naturally happy that we knew as children is still there; it never left. This aim of this video is to help you find it again.

Many of us fear being too happy. Some of us fear being happy, period! If you ask yourself why this is, you may say, “I am afraid of being too happy because I don’t want to be disappointed.” I have heard all kinds of answers to this question, but many seem to follow that rationale, including this big one dealing with relationships: “I am afraid he (she) is not the One.” Let me suggest a different reason why people fear happiness, and how you can confront this fear and let more happiness into your life.

Number 7: Find Happiness in What You Do


Humans do things. This is an obvious observation, but an important one. We never just sit idle — even when it appears we are doing nothing. We breathe, think, move around, look at things, listen to things, work, play, talk, etc. We are always doing something. The challenge is to find happiness in what you do, no matter what it is.

Humans are social by nature, and our mind-bodies have evolved in such a way that when we help each other we become happier. It is in our nature to build secure relationships with each other. One of the most important ways of connecting with others, even perfect strangers, is to focus on their needs. As we feel more connected, and as we act in ways that help build and maintain secure relationships, we become happier. The four main ways we focus on the needs of others are by practicing selflessness, charity, compassion and forgiveness.

Number 8: The Purpose of Life is to Be Happy

god-adam-sistine-chapel---learn-to-be-happyThe biggest question we face as humans is, why are we here? What is our purpose?

I take my cue on this from the Dalai Lama who said, “The purpose of your life is to be happy!” This may sound selfish, unrealistic or even wrong to some people. But I think it is true. The purpose of life is to be happy. Continue reading
