I try to be happy in littest thing
and happy with what I have
think positive .
The secret to happiness has put many individuals into confusion. In order to discover the secret of happiness we need to ask as well as answer this very significant question. What exactly it is that tends to make an individual happy? A lot of people have several ideas for what they want of their lives for making them happy. For some people, its monetary success , for other people its good relationships, while some others desire a sense of achievement from helping other people, some people want to experience success in the profession they go after. A more well-balanced individual will decide happiness comes from accomplishing a degree of success as well as harmony in many of the crucial areas of his lifetime. It is very easy to say such things than doing them. While pursuing things like these, these things may produce various degrees of external happiness. Are they truly the secret to happiness? If we look deeper into our thoughts and into the inner aspects of our lives, perhaps we will find that the real secret of happiness is smiling everyday, contentment and doing the right thing to others and to yourself with love and joy in your heart.
For me keeping a balance in our lives is the secret to happiness. Moderation should be followed in order to lead a happy life.
I truely believe that a man becomes depressed and unhappy when he wishes things before time and more than what is in his fate.
Happiness-- You get what you give so therefore, you give what you get! Emanate Happiness and you will get it!
I really don't think Happiness is a secret. Happiness to me is a state of just be-ing. You can not do or become happy. It is simply a decision to just be. Accepting and knowing all that is good ultimately manifests happiness in any given situation. Especially when you remain in the present moment. Embrace it and remain true!
it starts with luck, being born with and keeping the wherewithal to achieve freud's definition of a good life: "to love and to work."
Learning to make your world right for you in ways that you can change it, and then learning to accept the things you can't change. Really, a simple concept, a very difficult proposal.
i think secret to happiness is being contented with everything no matter what situation you're in.
the more that you try to seek happiness, the more you'll lose it.
being a filipino is such a blessing when it comes to this. you see us being a developing country with children and seniors on the streets starving but we would still welcome you with big smiles and laughters.
we would even joke around our personal problems and laugh on it instead of crying about it.
it's up to every person to handle his emotions. we shouldn't blame anyone else for what we feel.
I absolutely think that the secret to happiness starts with you; the moment you truly accept and love yourself the way you are is when you will find happiness. To get there one might have to do a lot of self-development work though, it may take some times, and today there are endless books, audios, websites, etc. on the subject. It is all in alignment with positive thinking.
Strip away your personality which could not exist if it did not have endless needs. Underlying that is true bliss and happiness.
The secret to happiness is simple, that is contented with anything you owned and always look at the bright side.
To me this question has always been easier than everyone makes it out to be to me. The secret to happiness is knowing what you want to do and doing it.
That may come with the overused but very true warning of "be careful what you wish for" but everything comes with a price tag. Of course, figuring out what you want to do (both in the fleeting and long term sense) can be easier said than done but that's another topic entirely.
optimism and faith
from them come strength , and each day is a gift of opportunity.
for me the secret to happiness is to live in the present moment:)
In my opinion happiness lies in a belief. If we think that from where we well get happiness.The answer is in front of us that we still have life.Happiness is with life because if we have it then we get happiness.If we dont have life,we dont have anything.Try to learn life,if you learn the one basic rule of life.Then your happiness will never ends, because happiness lies with life.Then in every moment you will be in happiness mode,and will never think about how to get happiness from others.
I think it begins with being happy with yourself and grows from there. No one is happy all the time, we all have ebb and flow of moods and circumstances in our lives. Trying to learn to be content with what you have is a start.

I believe that everyone could be perfectly, truly and genuinely happy, if they would just learn to accept everything as part of life. Life does not always go our way, and most certainly never goes as planned. So what? Why not make the most of it?
Acceptance refers to making peace with things we cannot change. Because there is an infinite number of elements that are completely out of our control - and aiming for the impossible is a garanteed failure at happiness.
Love is the answer to this question. You must have love to be happy.
The secret of happiness is money and the know how of how to spend it.
The true secret to happiness lies within yourself. You need a meaningful life. A lot of people go through the actions of being happy by being busy but underneath, they are miserable. Mainly because they are doing all those things for material gain and not eternal gains. Even if you're not religious or spiritual, you will find that doing something for others is more meaningful than always focusing on yourself. Caring for others' needs almost always returns to you by others caring for your wants and needs. Caring for yourself first only gets things for yourself. We are a world of people who should care and love each other. As we become more selfish and uncaring, we are less and less happy. We are angry and miserable and blaming because we only see ourselves and not others. Just take a moment and look through another's eyes and walk in his shoes for a moment and you will realize that he isn't that bad....maybe misguided but not bad. I have found out that I don't hate anyone I really get to know and as I know people, I care about people and as I care about people, I learn to love those people and then I can say I am truly happy. When others are successes, so am I. If you really want to be happy, get out of yourselves and help someone else. There are always people who have things worse than you do.
As Socrates believed, "Know thyself first.... An unexamined life is not worth living." Look within yourself for answers to where you are at this moment in time. Do not look to people and circumstances to provide you with happiness. By learning more about yourself, why you do some things you do, how you see situations, etc., you can then make positive changes.
Ultimately, true happiness is found in being fully involved in life, and in giving of yourself. It also may take sacrificing immediate pleasures, in order to have a more fulfilling happiness in the long term.
If happiness is the opposite of suffering, then the key to happiness is knowing the four noble truths and following the eightfold path:
Four Noble Truths
1. Life is suffering
2. Suffering is attachment
3. Attachment can be overcome
4. There is a path for accomplishing this - the eightfold path
The eightfold path
1. Right view is the true understanding of the four noble truths.
2. Right aspiration is the true desire to free oneself from attachment, ignorance, and hatefulness.
These two are referred to as prajña, or wisdom.
3. Right speech involves abstaining from lying, gossiping, or hurtful talk.
4. Right action involves abstaining from hurtful behaviors, such as killing, stealing, and careless sex.
5. Right livelihood means making your living in such a way as to avoid dishonesty and hurting others, including animals.
These three are refered to as shila, or morality.
6. Right effort is a matter of exerting oneself in regards to the content of one's mind: Bad qualities should be abandoned and prevented from arising again; Good qualities should be enacted and nurtured.
7. Right mindfulness is the focusing of one's attention on one's body, feelings, thoughts, and consciousness in such a way as to overcome craving, hatred, and ignorance.
8. Right concentration is meditating in such a way as to progressively realize a true understanding of imperfection, impermanence, and non-separateness.
The last three are known as samadhi, or meditation.

being bold and facing any problem without more enthusiasm..
i am amazed how people are answering this question without knowing the real meaning of happiness.pain and pleasure are all in our mind as i mentioned in detail. Just you have to think and practice the knowledge
Happiness is what everybody craves but only a few actually gain, i would recommend surrounding yourself with people that love, respect and trust you then you won't feel abandoned or alone; don't carry on doing things that you despise doing because you will just hate the time that you are doing it and that can drag your day from a happy one to an awful one.
Happiness is the nectar we crave so as long as your trying to gain it your life will not be wasted, when you finally do achieve happiness it will be the best feeling that your have ever felt.
A simple and humble life...
Perhaps a lot of people overcomplicate things are start to lose sight of the important things in life as they grow older.
They lose sight of the simple, and seek to keep up with the complex and ever-changing trends of society.
Read on to discover the simple secrets to happiness in your lives. Being happier couldn't be easier!! read more
