Sean McMillian shares helpful tips to create happiness and peace in your life.
Tip #1: Happiness and peace are not dependent on possessions and circumstances.
Material possessions, money and fame, might bring temporary happiness and inner peace, but true happiness and inner peace come from within you. They do not depend on your possessions, status or circumstances.
Happiness and peace also come through simple things you love, such as reading a good book, being with friends you love, or a hobby. You can enjoy many moments of peace every day, when you do small, simple things you love.
Tip #2: Adopt a positive attitude toward life, Think about solutions, not about problems. You can choose the see the problems, and you can choose to see the solutions. You can choose to expect failure, and you can choose to expect success. Forget the past and focus on the present. A positive attitude makes you feel light, happy and peaceful.
Tip #3: Don’t let your fears occupy your mind.
Fear and worry cause stress and unhappiness. Even if your fears and worries are real, you will get nothing by dwelling on them, except lack of peace and happiness.
Don’t let negative thoughts rule your mind. What you fear might not happen, and if it does happen, worrying about it will do you no good. Only positive thinking and positive action can help you.
Tip #4: Be a doer. Don’t just accept your circumstances. Don’t be passive. Be active, a doer. Don’t be afraid of action and of challenges.
Now is the time to make a change. When you do what you love, happiness and peace start filling your life.
Tip #5: Change what you don’t like and, which does not benefit you. Consciously, decide to change the things that you don’t like or are not benefiting you. You might not be able to change everything, yet, there are many things you can change in your life.
Bonus Tip: Spend time with your family. Find the time to be with your family, talk, play, and have fun. At least once a week, have a meal together.
