15 Ways To Be Happier Now & Successful

Being happy brings success, not the other way around. Let's be honest, success is hard. Not complicated, just hard (Both are scientifically proven!).
Being happy and being successful don't necessarily come hand-in-hand. While being happy may very well require being successful in personal and professional life. If you really want to be successful and happy in life, there are a few steps you should follow to achieve success. 

Over the years, I’ve discovered that the art of getting what you want is all grounded in intentional living. You have to be perceptive and self-aware to capitalize on your time, your strengths, and your energies. You have to visualize the end, knowing where you want to go, if you want to have a chance of getting there. And this all boils down to spending the time necessary to figure out who you are and what lights you up. You have to do more than what you love. You have to do what you are.

15 Ways To Be Happier Now & Successful
No matter where you are in your life, these are 15 easy ways to achieve success in your everyday life.

Having a determined goal

Set one goal to be achieved and try your best to achieve that. It can be simple like saving some income for next travel trip, or upgrading for better career or learning new language. Not having anything to achieve makes life too boring and can make you quickly feel bogged down. Having a goal helps in motivating yourself in the situation and increase your confidence levels.

Stop giving reasons for everything

That's the biggest key to happiness, according to Stanford engineering professor Bernard Roth and author of The Achievement Habit. For example, giving reasons for being chronically late to meetings or explaining your inability to spend more time with family as being too busy at work are indications that your priorities are out of whack, and realigning them will lead to greater happiness. "Reasons are often just excuses," he writes. "We use them to hide our shortcomings from ourselves. When we stop using reasons to justify ourselves, we increase our chances of changing behavior, gaining a realistic self-image, and living a more satisfying and productive life."

Treat yourself and love yourself

It may not be possible to ourselves first. Most of the time we give more attention towards others either it can be professional or at personal perspective. Making a resolution to treat yourself first at regular intervals will help in overcoming and avoiding many problems in life. And it is also makes you content with yourself.

Be grateful

It's simple, and it works. The next time you feel like shit, think of five things in your life you're thankful for. It'll turn around a dark moment and possibly your entire day.

Overlook and don't look back

You can’t stop life from throwing stuff at you. You can’t stop the unexpected from interfering with your goals and dreams. But you can choose how to respond. You can always choose to shift to a healthier state of mind when unwanted things happen. People who are happy, successful and optimistic know that, no matter what happens, life still goes on and they can choose to focus on things that empower them. They refuse to give up their right to enjoy life. And guess what? So can you.

Stop saying "should."

I should really work out tonight, I should really eat better, I should spend more time at home. The word implies reluctance and guilt. Start saying "want" instead of "should." The positive language will help you clarify and prioritize what you really want to be doing at the moment — and it can help you see healthy behaviors you're not psyched about (you really do want to be eating better) in a motivating way.

Be an observer of life

We have the unique ‘power to observe our lives’ and decide to do more of what we want to do, and less of what we do not want to do. It is very important to discover our purpose, vision, mission in life if we want to get the most out of life and to realize our true potential during our lifetimes. The learned will always be conquered by the learners.

Work on your happiness perception

Tal Ben-Shahar, author of Happier: Learn the Secrets to Daily Joy and Lasting Fulfillment, says that's about realizing that happiness is the goal to where everything else leads. "It's about finding the overlap among the three questions, 'What gives me meaning,' 'What gives me pleasure?' and 'What are my strengths?'" Determining those things, and focusing on them even for a slice of your day, will boost your mood long term.

Observe your lifestyle and develop great habits

Success is best enjoyed by people who are ethically right. Stop wasting your time on meaningless pursuits. Exercise alone is not enough for health you must watch the food and chemicals you put into your body. Do not eat junk and greasy foods. Also stay away from sleeping disorders by building proper sleep disciplines. Ask people about the good habits they have and they will tell you about the bad habits they do not have. It is necessary not to have bad habits but you need good habits. Your habits create your lifestyle and the results you attain.

Smile, dammit

Forcing a fake smile reduces stress, according to a University of Kansas study in which subjects were asked to plunge their hands into a bucket of ice water while forcing a smile. Researchers monitoring the subjects recorded lower blood pressures in the people who smiled through through the icy experience. And the smilers reported less anxiety than those who showed neutral or distressed expressions.

Get rich

Money gives you the freedom and resources to live a great life. You can spend your time doing the things that you love and delegate the things that you do not love. The world is full of people who spend ten hours every day, 52 weeks a year, and 40 years of their life in a profession that they do not enjoy. Money gives you the freedom to follow your heart.

Trust yourself

Believe in your inner resources, no matter what, and you'll grow from the experience. I believe that the answers usually lie within and you are probably smart enough to figure out what you need to do. Give yourself a little time and have patience.

Travel often

Spending money on experiences is more likely to bring lasting happiness compared to spending money on material objects, according to a recent study. A recent study has found that travel is the secret to lasting happiness. Scientists at Cornell University found that we remember holidays for far longer than we remember buying material goods.

Make a simplicity list

Write down five or 10 things that are most important to you in life that you want to accomplish. Boiling things down creates clarity and will get you started on a plan that much faster.

Deal with your fears

Overcoming fear makes you stronger, and being a little scared can make you better. You want to have butterflies; you just want them flying in formation. It helps to understand and admit your fears. Then you can kick them to the curb.
Success really isn’t about being catapulted into the stratosphere overnight. It’s about taking consistent action, testing different options, and seeing the results. Feel good about yourself, no matter what life brings. Know that each time you wake up, you have another chance to make things better. Don't waste it.
