Life happens to all of us and learning how to be happy again after it feels like this world has dragged you through the wringer is the first step to making it happen.
Happiness, fulfillment, and how these are achieved, are generally misrepresented and therefore very much misunderstood.
The secret rests within the mindset.
Deliberate action generates the experiences we most desire.

Did you know that you can maintain happiness while flourishing in a crisis?
It takes practice to learn how best to respond during tough times, however, once you’ve learned how to manage your own mindset, nothing external will be in control of your happiness.
Self Mastery is the essential key to unlocking the world of bliss you've been yearning for.
Well, how do you find this happiness amid the chaos?
It’s simple really: quiet your mind. be present.
Being present means the fear of “what if” doesn’t overrule you.
Fears exist when we’re focused too deeply on the future.
You might be thinking: “What if my 401K doesn’t rebound”, “What if I get sick,” “What if my business doesn’t survive?”
Sure any of that could happen, but an equal chance exists that none of them will.
Then why surrender control to what hasn’t happened yet?
Fear exists only in the future – so focus on the present where there’s no fear.
Granted, the “present” isn’t always starry skies but even so, whether you’re isolating or feeling lost, you’ll be happier when you’re focusing on the good happening around you right here, right now.
If you’re still stuck at home for whatever reason, be grateful you get to spend more time with loved ones, focus your efforts on learning a new skill or take a break to recharge.
Why bother wasting time & energy on a “maybe” when all you need to do is notice the joy where you are in the present?
Put happiness at the top of your priority list.
Wonder how you can focus on ‘the present’ during great, and not-so-great times?
The candid answer: practice being happy. (With an emphasis on “practice” as every powerful skill needs it.)
What you practice matures into habits, and these habits perpetuate unless you consciously change them.
We seldom realize that we’re constantly practicing things through our habits.
If you keep practicing this thought, “I’ll be happy when [fill in the blank] happens,” what habit are you reinforcing?
You will always delay your happiness up to when [fill in the blank] happens.
Not because a great life will always elude you, but because you have mastered being unhappy.
Unhappiness has become your habit!
This is why Step 2 is to learn to be happy no matter what…
If you want to be happy, then you have to practice happiness as a daily habit.
You must prioritize being happy, regardless of life’s challenges.
Whether you fail or succeed, lose or win, experience setbacks or soar, make your happiness a priority.
Whether everything’s in line with your dreams, or if you’re still bushwhacking to reach your next clearing, your happiness must come first.
How will you be training your mind for focusing on each present moment, to achieve the result of happiness?
Within who or what currently in your life, are you able to find happiness?
Your mindset creates patterns and habits and is largely based on the principles you exercise.
There’s not much ado about your former programming but Here, Now, you can choose to learn how to transform your mindset from miserable to magnificent.
