In Latin America there are endless traditions for attracting good fortune in the New Year: wearing red trousers to call for love, giving lambs so that the “wool” is not missing, sweeping the door of the house at the beginning of the 12 chimes, wearing lenses Dinner. that there is abundance, eat 12 grapes for every wish we want to be fulfilled, etc. However, according to British psychologist Richard Weisman, there is no happiness as such, but happy people. He also states that there are people with an outlook on life that lets more good things happen to them without chance having anything to do with it.
If you are one of those people who think that your happiness is born and innate with you, you are wrong. Happiness, good or bad, you create it yourself.
Because of this, I'm going to teach you seven secret methods to bring happiness into your life that are much more effective than living the rest of your life with an amulet or four-leaf clover.
Remember: your happiness is no worse or better than that of others, it depends on you and only on you.
1. Eliminate negative thoughts
If you complain about all the negative things that are happening to you all day and you think that if you leave each other the same thing or worse is waiting for you, then that thought will eventually become a reality.
You will think everything is going against you and you will get so tired of rolling in that loop of dead end thoughts that in the end you won't be fighting to change things and make your life better because you think so Your happiness is there and there is nothing you can do to change it. But you are wrong
The way to move forward is to get those negative thoughts out of your head because they are not real. If you don't put an end to it, you will end up believing them and be miserable forever.
2. Don't join new opportunities
A person who believes they are unlucky tends not to recognize and take advantage of good opportunities that suddenly arise.
For example, someone who plays often is more likely to win the lottery than someone who plays once every three months. Or someone is more likely to find work if they are actively looking for work.
What I'm going to tell you is that the more opportunities you take, the more likely good things will happen to you.
3. Get out of your comfort zone
Only those who decide to experience new things and get out of their comfort zone have a better chance of being lucky.
Thanks to this great step, you can get to know yourself better, discover new skills you didn't know, new passions and learn to be a little happier doing what you want to do.
Fear can be a huge obstacle preventing you from entering the unknown, but if we learn to overcome it, we will achieve things that we could never have imagined.
4. Follow your ideas
One of the reasons there are "unlucky people" is that they do not know how to make safe decisions and that they do not get carried away by their instincts or premonitions.
Instincts sometimes lead to wrong paths, but according to scientific studies, 80% of the time they know what is best for your personal and professional field
So listen to your instincts, let yourself be carried away by them and act decisively, even when you have to leave your comfort zone and face adversity.
5. If you want new results, don't follow the same steps
Things don't go the way you want them to, but you still do things the same way.
If you want to make new changes, the first thing you should do is change some habits: live in another city, meet new people, practice a new sport, take a risk, etc.
Don't expect to make big changes in a short period of time. You should start small and change a little habit or two every week. As you adjust, you should make more major changes in your routine. You will see how this will give you new opportunities.
6. Change your negative opinion to a positive one
Everything has a positive and a negative side, but our mind is more focused on the negative. Try to change that and always look on the good side of things. No matter how dark it is, appreciate the positive and give thanks for it.
If instead of thinking that I have failed your business fails, shout out loud, I have learned from my mistakes and will try again.
7. Stay away from pessimistic people
The people you interact with in your daily life can also affect your luck or bad luck.
When you surround yourself with pessimistic and negative people, you lower your self-esteem, suck up your energy, and feel very small. You will not feel motivated by anything, nor will you be anxious to master new challenges.
Identify these toxic people in your life and keep them as far away as possible if you want to live a full and peaceful life.
