How to be Happy? A Simple Guide to a Better Life

how to be happy

“How can I get happy?”
It’s one of the most popular questions on Google, with more than 6 billion search results.
Everyone wants to be happy, but do we truly know how to achieve that?

We all want to be happy, right?
Isn’t that the end goal that’s always in sight?
But how do we reach this goal?
How can true happiness reach our soul?
Too often, we assume that happiness comes from outside
But the truth is real happiness comes from INSIDE.

We have the power to make small changes in our behaviour, our surroundings and our relationships that can help set us on course for a happier life. Here are a few ways in which you can be happy and content at the moment.

1: Believe In Yourself

We have moments that pull us down, and sometimes we need to create our sunshine. We might have failed in relationships, in exams and take moments too seriously and feel like we aren’t getting anywhere in life. You need to know that moments are temporary, and you are permanent.  You have the power to change your thoughts and create your reality.
Perspective is a great place to start.


Think of every day like a new beautiful piece of art
Where some people may see a blank empty canvas,
Your positive perspective sees a frame that says, “I can do this.”
If you believe in yourself, then no one can stop you. Believe that you will get prosperous, fit, happy and meet some small or big goal. Be proud of the person you are and know that you will be happy at the moment and achieve all your goals in the end with this mindset.

2: Be Grateful

When you can look yourself in the mirror and be proud of what you see
That is the day you will be pleased.
You have to be thankful for everything in your life
To attract the major goals.


Start your day by counting your blessings and being grateful for the morning cup of tea or coffee. For a roof above your head, for a lovely family and a luxurious life. It will make you feel good, and it will shift you away from bitterness and despair and promote happiness.

3: Foster Forgiveness

Holding a grudge and nursing grievances will only affect you. One way to curtail these feelings is to foster forgiveness. Know that keeping grudges will only grow a negative sense inside you which isn’t good for your growth in life. Let the grudges go away. Forgive moments, people and yourself for holding on to things. It will heal you and make you see the beauty of life, and open your heart to receive all the best things. 


It will make you a happy person if you detach yourself from that feeling and forgive and move on to a new bright phase of your life.

4: Remove Negative Thoughts and Feelings

You are the creator of your reality, and it is in your hands to shape your life the way you wish for it to become. It can be complicated with negative thoughts and feelings conquering your mind, but we need to drive that vehicle and change that behaviour.


Don’t be afraid to take a risk for yourself and know you are the scriptwriter of your life, and you can erase these negative thoughts and not let them impact you. Make way for positive thoughts and see how your journey will be full of happiness with a great mindset. 

5: Don’t Be Afraid To Chase Your Dream

Do whatever will help you grow your inner wealth.
What works for me will most likely not work for you
Because we are all unique and that’s what makes you,
So look deep inside your mind
And recognize what it is you’re trying to find
What makes you smile? What makes you laugh?
What makes your bar stay high on your Life’s graph?
These are the questions you must answer.
It’s like spreading new seeds in your Life’s big planter
Once you are happy with YOU
Then you can graduate to helping others feel like you do
So pick your head up; it starts right now
Do you want to be happy? Well, you just read how
And of course, you can’t forget the easiest way:
Do what you got to do. Live Life EVERY Day.
