6 Secrets to Happiness

Written by Lynne Kaska

Continued from page 1

Taking Responsibility for our actions is probablyrepparttar most difficult part of creating a life of happiness. I want you to pretend that someone who you blame for something is standing in front of you; now point your finger at them. What I never realized is that when I pointrepparttar 138078 finger at someone else, I have 3 pointing back at me. When I was able to really start looking at my part in things,repparttar 138079 growth that I went through was incredible. I felt as if I was stopping a cycle. And I did!!! By taking responsibility for my own actions and seeing where I was wrong, I was able to identifyrepparttar 138080 things that I did to other people, therefore I was able to truly make amends to them. By seeing my part, I changed a lot of behaviors.

Forgiveness isrepparttar 138081 next step. For a detailed explanation of forgiveness, please see my article titled ďForgivingrepparttar 138082 Unforgivable.Ē When I went throughrepparttar 138083 process of forgivingrepparttar 138084 people that hurt me, I felt as if nothing inrepparttar 138085 world could stop me from havingrepparttar 138086 happiness that I had longed for, for so long.

Giving back isrepparttar 138087 final step in achievingrepparttar 138088 happiness that you want. As I began to de-clutter my heart and get rid of allrepparttar 138089 things that kept me inrepparttar 138090 darkness, my heart felt full, I felt alive, and I felt like I had so much to offerrepparttar 138091 world. That was when I first decided to start getting articles published, and I took steps towards getting books published, and I even wrote my first e-book. If people werenít there for me to help me through this process, then I wouldnít be where Iím at today. I canít just ignorerepparttar 138092 things that people did for me. Service work can be done in a number of ways. It doesnít necessarily have to be being a candy striper at a hospital. There are a number of places that need volunteers. It could be visiting a nursing home, or just smiling at a cashier. It could be holding a door open for an elderly person or carrying their groceries to their car for them. What I have found is that by giving back what was given to me, I am able to keeprepparttar 138093 things that Iíve achieved.

My hope for you is that you find value in some ofrepparttar 138094 steps above as well as my experiences. My hope for you is that you will finally discoverrepparttar 138095 happiness within you. My hope for you is that you will finally findrepparttar 138096 freedom that you so deserve

day towards something you would really like to learn or

accomplish in your life, it adds up to 365 hours a year!

Significant changes can happen in that amount of time. Using

throw away time usefully is also a good exercise, for

example listening to an audio tape or CD when traveling in

the car. To grow beyond better, purposely schedule into your

day time devoted to improving your mind, increasing your

skills and consciously makerepparttar 138059 decision to assimilate and

apply what you learn.
