How often do you find yourself just sitting back at home, content? One of the most difficult things to accomplish in this world is self-satisfaction and for the majority of us this is because we don’t want to feel arrogant or smug. However, having a favourable opinion of yourself, the work you do and the life you lead is very important to stay in high spirits and actually being able to progress and improve your life.
First things first – giving yourself a pat on the back for succeeding or doing well is not something you should be embarrassed about. In fact, it should be applauded – humility and being able to see when you have done a good thing or a good deed is really important!
Feeling happy about yourself is all about feeling comfortable with yourself and your lifestyle. Are you somebody you would like to be friends with? Answering this question can give you some of the answers you seek…
Finding personal happiness can be a long struggle for many people because they don’t feel like they deserve to be happy. But why shouldn’t you? You deserve to be as happy as anyone else – it’s your birthright.
Many of us are quick to judge others for their actions, but this comes from a feeling of unease in our own lives. If you regularly snipe at others and can’t wait to find fault, it’s usually because you aren’t 100% happy with your own life.
It’s best to always be looking to be positive even in the most negative and downward of situations – nothing is unbeatable, nothing is unstoppable. Having a mentality of being able to beat the stacked odds is key to having happiness in your own life. Every time you do something stupid or regretful, find out why you’ve done it in your own mind; There will be something useful to learn.
Likewise, every time you do something good analyse why this happened, and how you can take your positive actions even further; How can they change yet more lives? Selflessness is a great feeling when you help others and go out of your way to be useful to more than just yourself. So take the opportunity the next time you can to do a good deed, it will go a long way to helping you feel better about yourself!
