Absurdities and obstacle approach in an inappropriate manner and sometimes could withhold our ability to live a better life. Think back for a moment to the carefree days of childhood when your most pressing concern was what cartoon to watch or how to dress your favorite doll or action figure. Do you remember how peaceful and content you felt???? There are no reasons to be unhappy.. Old saying always goes "There are no such thing as bad weathers.. Warm Sunny shows how beautiful a day could be and Rainy day cleanses our soul and body." Its all in the state of mind. There are many ways to be happy. In some extend these 7 steps might help to fuel up your day with happiness ...Enjoy it!!


1) Be happy where you are now


Right now! Be thankful for what you have, instead of moaning about what you lack. Be satisfied with what you have when you are in pursuit of what you want.


2) Happiness, more than anything, is a choice we make every day


Happiness is a conscious decision. You choose to be happy today or you choose to be miserable. Your action/reaction is determined by how you choose to perceive a situation.  Amusing illustration of a couple surrounded by a pack of crocodiles. The man thought “OMG Crocodiles!” while his wife thought “OMG Handbags!”


3) Happiness is understanding the things we can’t change yet and working on those we can


Some things are hard to change overnight. It’s unusual to change from a pauper into a millionaire in a day. Happiness is knowing that some things take more time. We can start by working on what we can change immediately.

4) Put a smile on your face. It changes how you think.

I was playing roller blade one Saturday evening and there was this beautiful girl(memang cute lah dia nie) I met while getting a drink. She smiled as we both walked towards the vending machine. I smiled back and allowed her to buy her drink first.
While on the skating rink, we passed each other a couple of times. I was trying hard to keep myself on my feet while to her embarrassment she also was falling happily. Our eyes met again. She smiled and I smiled back.
Then as she was making her way out of the rink, I smiled and waved goodbye. She smiled back. I could hear her friends asking “Is that your friend?” I didn’t catch her reply but I remembered her turning towards me with another smile. I returned the smile with a wave to her bewildered friends.
We didn’t exchange a single word. We didn’t need to. The smiles were enough to brighten up both our days.

5) Whatever you get, accept it and deal with it


All too often, when something bad happens, we are too quick to point fingers and start placing blame on everyone else. Happiness is about accepting responsibility and dealing with what comes your way. Blaming the whole world is not going to solve anything.


6) Problems = Catalyst to take Action

We should see problems as a catalyst for us to take action. Problems are good teachers, so learn to love them. Next time, when you face a problem at work/in business, remember to run up to your boss/partner and say, “We have a huge opportunity!”


7) Learn from the elephants!

How do you eat an elephant?
Answer: One bite at a time.

What did the elephant say to the naked man?

Answer: How do you breathe through that thing?


8) Put everything you have into whatever you are doing now

Do your best (100%) and life will support you!


9) It’s not what you get. It’s what you become that matters

Know what to expect – Expect a better you.


10) No one else is going to make you happier. Work on yourself.

A lot of people get things mixed up. A wife thinks about all the bad things her husband does while a widow remembers all the good stuff. That is the ultimate recipe for misery! Isn’t it better to switch the lists around?
Work on your mindset. See things from a positive light.

Happiness is in the way you think. No one can make you happy except yourself.  I hope Faith will teach you something about happiness that goes beyond words.LETS TURN ON THAT HAPPY MOOD SHALL WE...XD
