True Happiness And How To Get It

Updated on November 20, 2016

Happiness How To Achieve It!


True Happiness Within You How To Acheive It!

True Happiness lies in all of us. So many books, self help books and movies reflect it. We all desire and want it. First you have to analyze yourself. Take a good look in the mirror regarding yourself. Write a list of what makes you happy. Write another list of what is happening in your life that makes you unhappy. Take the unhappy list and write down how are you going to change right now what makes you unhappy. I know what your thinking, big deal ! how am I suppose to change it? You need to do this because there is always constant change in the universe. Nothing remains the same.

The list of conditions are:

1 Affluence- This is the a condition of steep increase, good things are happening.

2. Normal- This is a routine or gradual increase. This condition also means remaining the same.

3. Emergency-The condition has retained the same for a long period of time.

4. Danger- A drastic decrease in the condition.

5. Non- Existence- This is failure

What condition or state are you in?

You can go from the lowest up the scale. Its is all up to you. How can you do it? You need to apply yourself. Anything can change and will if you apply yourself. It is the law of the Universe. People or situations are always changing. Here is an example.

John worked as an executive for many years. he was paid well. He just now lost his job. Where is he on the condition chart? He is in non-existence. He feels down and his job was everything to him. What can he possibly do to change his condition. He can sit at home and be down in the dumps about it or he can apply himself. GET CREATIVE!!!!!!! Use your positive thoughts and ideas. John was great at advertising and marketing his company. The company went bankrupt from overspending. He thought I will market myself. He put the word out he was looking for a job. He even got creative and did positive things while he was out of work. He participated in some charities, talked to people he met while he was there. Went online published his own ad. He was not going to let his condition get the best of him. The word of mouth spread and someone from the charity spoke highly of him. Now he has found a job. Right now he went from non-existence back up to affluence. Think POSITIVE!!!! Don't get suppressed. What can you do to be creative and make a difference in this world.

If you follow the Seven Virtues you will find your Happiness!

1. Chastity-Abstaining from sexual conduct according to one's state in life. Embracing of moral wholesomeness and achieving purity of thought through education and betterment.

2. Temperance- Constant mindfulness of others and one's surroundings; practicing self-control, abstention, and moderation.

3. Charity-Willingness to give. A nobility of thought or actions.

4. Diligence-A zealous and careful nature in one's actions and work. Decisive work ethic. Budgeting one's time; monitoring one's own activities to guard against laziness.(The Vice "Acedia" is more commonly known as "Sloth")

5. Patience-Forbearance and endurance through moderation. Resolving conflicts peacefully, as opposed to resorting to violence. The ability to forgive; to show mercy to sinners.

6. Kindness- Charity, compassion,friendship and empathy without prejudice and for its own sake.

7. Humility-Modest behavior,selflessness, and the giving of respect. Giving credit where credit is due; not unfairly glorifying one's own self.

I know its hard but this works. When you start evaluating yourself, your behavior and actions, you start to realize the change has to happen within you to experience happiness.

One last but not least.

Very important Forgiving and moving forward. If there is something, if anything holding you back. This may be it. You need to be able to forgive and move forward in the future. If you have something in your past you need to write it down even if the person is no longer living and forgive them. If it is something you did, you need to write it down and forgive yourself or ask the person you wronged to forgive you. Also a letter is good too. This will release any type of negative energy. Follow this and test yourself.


I have used this for myself and It works!

Have a good day and God bless.

      Dear Sandy, LOL, my name is Kenneth Avery. I was talking about The Andy Griffith Show and my hometown, Hamilton, looking like Andy Griffith's town, Mayberry, but if I ever change my writer name from Kenneth, I may try Andy Avery, to remind me of a Dear Friend I have found: YOU! Thanks so much for the great memory, Sandy! I am so glad that I found you on Hubs.
