What is Happiness? Why is it important to find yours? Both of these are important questions to consider if you are going to have a fulfilling life.
I want you to try something right now. Whatever you are doing, stop and try to visualize the last time you found yourself completely and unquestionably happy. Think of the last time that you lost yourself in the moment.
What were you doing? Where were you? Who were you with?
After considering this, ask yourself if you knew, before the moment of happiness that this combination of events or conditions would indeed actually leave you feeling this blissful.
Perhaps feeling happy is not actually a perfect combination of predetermined conditions. Each person has a unique set of criteria for the creation of feelings of happiness. This is where the soul-searching becomes very important. You must know yourself quite well in order to deliberately bring about greater levels of happiness. This is the key.
Thirty Days to Happy, the book
According to our book, Thirty Days to Happy, Cara and I were able to determine six major categories of actions that one can take in order to bring about more happiness and contentment. In the same way, we were also able to determine that knowing oneself well, and surrounding oneself with the things that one likes or loves, also makes one feel happier. Of all of the possible conditions that one can create for oneself the three most important are: who you find yourself with, where you are and what you are doing.
See the feature article on this website “How to be Happy”. This will give you some great tips and tricks about finding greater levels of happiness.
The Big Three!
Based on some very compelling primary research that Cara and I have been completing, it is evident that a person requires the presence of 2 of the 3 conditions, in order to feel happy. Three W’s; who, where and what. When you are feeling happy, ask yourself three questions:
- Who am I with?
- Where am I?
- What am I doing?
You will find that, give that you feel happy, you can probably satisfy 2 of the 3 of the three W’s.
When considering a moment of happiness one can ask:
Who was I with?
Where was i?
What was I doing?
What was I eating?
What was I wearing?
Why did I feel happy?
How much money did I have?
What time of day was it?
** Continue with questions.
The only three questions that truly matter are the first three. Who you are with, what you are doing and where you are.
