Do You Make This Mistake in Your Search for Happiness?

You have no idea that happiness is closer to you than you can imagine.

If you are not happy and satisfied with your life, then you are looking in the wrong place in your search for happiness.

What you need to know is that you are here to enjoy life and to fulfill your purpose.

You might be distracted from the right path for many reasons, and as a result you gradually lose your natural happiness until you end up in total misery.

But where is happiness? What should you do to acquire happiness? Should you wait for something to happen to be happy? Does happiness depend on success?

You might have lots of questions about how to be happy, and I couldn’t find a better answer than what I am going to share with you right now. This is the best philosophy of happiness ever…

Here it is…

“The foolish man seeks happiness in the distance; the wise grows it under his feet.”
– James Oppenheim

“The foolish man seeks happiness in the distance; the wise grows it under his feet.”
– James Oppenheim

Most people are seeking happiness in the future. They are waiting for certain things to happen for them to be happy.

Only the wise man understands that he only possesses the moment. There is nothing but NOW. And so he must seek happiness now, right under his feet.

It is really a matter of making a decision. Decide that you are going to be happy no matter what. Just smile and you will be happy.

The two most powerful things that will help you be happy all the time are:

1. Gratitude:

Be grateful for what you have. Most people only look at the dark side of their lives. They don’t see the ocean of blessings that they live in. Being healthy is a treasure in itself. Think of all the good things that you have in your life―and I challenge you to find them anything but endless!

2. Purpose

Having a sense of meaning and purpose in your life gives you the ultimate feeling of pleasure and satisfaction. Why? Because when you follow your true purpose in life you are in harmony with the reason for your existence. Your purpose is why you are here and what you are meant to do. Your purpose is why you were born in the first place.

If you are unhappy, you must understand that your unhappiness is healthy because it is an indicator that you are off track. You are not following your purpose in life and so you are not happy.

Happiness is always here, just under your feet.

The time to be happy is NOW, not tomorrow. You only live NOW, and you deserve to be happy NOW.

Be grateful and follow your true purpose in life and you will feel happy all the time.

Choose to be happy, because happiness is a choice.

You can easily make that choice when you have a high level of gratitude for all of life’s blessings and when you find and follow your spiritual path―your purpose in life.

You are wise enough to grow happiness under your feet, aren’t you?
