1) They know when to stop talking. Yes. That’s right, it may seem happy people may be on the quieter side but it really has to do with the topic of conversation. Happy people prefer not to engage in complaining, what’s not working in their life or speaking about other people. It is just not fun to them nor does it feel good. They are also intuitively aware that their attention to anything expands so why would they waste their time focused on a topic that would perpetuate negative creating of their own life. They just won’t do it, and you may see them sneak away to grab a cocktail if available. See, you now drove them to drink. Stop complaining.
2) Happy people do not make a big deal about stupid sh*t going wrong. They know life is always working out for them and even in crap moments they understand their own personal power, and see the “crap” experiences as interesting only. They know the temporary emotional set-back serves only as a clear indicator that it’s time to get back on track to start loving life. Yes, everyone falls off track sometimes, even the happy people except they don’t use it as an excuse to crawl up in a ball and cry (for long anyway) and instead move onward and upward as quickly as humanely possible.
You will never see a happy person argue with someone who is acting like a jerk, because:
- They quickly realize (oh crap!?) I am clearly a vibrational match to this jerk if I attracted them into my experience (Gosh darn it!! Next time I’m going to do my best to get on the happy trail first to avoid attracting the likes of you).
- Why would any happy person waste their time conversing with someone clearly not happy about life? Instead happy people mentally send love smacks and secretly send well wishes to those with unfortunate non-loving life ways. Perhaps ending the interaction with a “start loving life” business card (optional). Because you know, anyone even the most miserable peeps can start loving life (plug).
3) Happy people do not try to change the world. Happy people know each person is on their own journey and realize some people are:
- loving life
- want to know how to start loving life or (give out business card here)
- blame everyone else for why they are not loving life. (no business card for you)
Either way it’s all good, because happy people already know the world is a happy place and they don’t need the world to be a happy place in order for them to live like it is.
Choose to live your life on the leading edge of happiness and start loving life today.
I really do need to follow these tips. Being a perpetual right fighter is no fun.
This is so true. It’s important to help others, but you have to focus on yourself and your happiness first, or you’re no good to anyone.
I don’t know many people like this in real life. I definitely do not know when to stop talking and it gets me in trouble all the time.
I always tell my husband to let the little stuff go because it just gets him upset.
Totally agree, happy people don’t make a big deal of things that are going wrong. I also found that most of the happy people I know are all about serving others.
Last year was not a very happy year for me. I’m definitely going to try to act more like a happy person this year.
Interesting article, different way to see things! Thanks for sharing.
I am by nature a generally happy person.From time to time if I hear a certain ignorant something I absolutely will speak up and say something, on the off chance someone can learn something from it.
I’m going to have to rethink how happy I am now. Lol. Good stuff to know.
I have to agree with #2, everyone matter how happy or unhappy their lives are has stupid stuff going on. It is how you deal with it that matters.
These are all so true. I’m a happy person and I don’t feel the need to always jump into every conversation.
Those are excellent tips that are so true, to my son, this is his code of life.
I try to be happy but sometimes it is really tough. Life throws curve balls at you and it takes everything to be happy.
