I recently had the awesome experience of speaking about creating happiness at Ignite Fort Collins! In my talk I spoke about 4 simple steps to enjoy the life you have today. Here’s an overview of my talk, with video of my talk below!
Many of us seek happiness. As we focus our attention on the pursuit of happiness it often feels just out of reach. Real happiness doesn’t come from the outside- it comes from the inside. Happiness happens when you create positive habits that support happiness.
Want to invite happiness into your life today? Here’s how!
4 Simple Steps To A Happier Life
1. Think Happy
If you want to be happy you must first decide to be happy. Making a decision to think happy won’t change your life but it will invite happiness into your life. A happy attitude is the start to a happy life.
2. Speak Happy
When it comes to speaking happy what you don’t say is just as important as what you do say. The first part of speaking happy is to stop complaining! I don’t know about you but when I’m actively complaining I’m not feeling very happy.
The second part of speaking happy is complimenting others. The more genuine compliments you give the happier you feel. Whatever you give comes back to you and giving kudos to others creates a positive, complimentary environment that benefits you as much as others.
3. Feel Happy
Gratitude is my favorite way to feel happy. There’s a lot of great things in my life if I choose to see them. Every day I’m grateful for all the good stuff in my life is a day I feel a little happiness.
4. Be Happy
Stop waiting to be happy and simply be happy. Happiness isn’t something that happens when you get what you want or life goes exactly as planned. Embrace happiness for happiness’ sake!
I’m thrilled to share a video of my talk with you! Does this count as my first ever vlog? Okay, probably not.
I love your comments! How are you going to create happiness in your life today? What other ideas do you have to think, speak, feel, and be happy?
