No most people are not as happy as possible-my business is to review the life people live-I get paid to do this-so I can tell you that most people are not as happy as they could be. What is most difficult for me to see over and over again is the fact that most people only have to make one or two changes in their thinking or attitude-and they could be so much more happy-but they just don't do it.
One secret is this-ask someone you love and trust-to tell you just one thing about yourself that they suggest you could change in order to be happier or to get along better with those you love-then listen to this person. If you really trust and love this person-take the advice (if it feels intuitively right to you).
Usually, good people only have to make these changes:
Speak the truth and don't manipulate. We all manipulate to get our way (here and there). So-stop it and face the results of speaking without small bits of manipulations.
Stop the negative mind chatter that so often misleads your moods. Find something to believe in that you can think about when you begin to hear chatter of negativity in your mind.
Physically move your body each day so that you can be healthy. A short walk is a step in the right direction.
Start right now - and your life will shift in the right direction. After some time-you will become a naturally positive person who faces issues head one (instead of avoiding them through manipulations) and lives to create health, wealth and happiness.
