We all recognize happy people and we would like to be like them, don’t you agree. Both in our personal and private life. Here are 4 things that Tony de Bree thinks happy people have in common based on the stories of customers and his own personal story.
1. They live in the present
Happy people focus on what’s happening right now. They know that whatever happened in the past, stays in the past. There’s no point mourning about it in the present. So, they make the most of what they do have, both in their personal and in their private lives. They learn from their mistakes and failures in the past, but they don’t dwell on it too much. Which is the exact opposite unhappy people do.
Most people are unhappy because they let themselves get too attached to the past. If you’re one of them, you’ve got to learn to let go. And start allover. Move on and focus on what you’ve got right in front of you, right this very moment. Make the right choices, for YOU an trust the right people. Otherwise, you’re going to miss out big time on the present, and you’ll only add it to your long list of things you will regret.
2. They’re optimistic about the future
Happy people aren’t naïve. They know the future is important. They can’t simply live in the present, and not have a good plan for the future. They’re optimistic about what the future holds. Because they are sure of themselves and they live a balanced life staying close to themselves and to their own values, with their partner, family and friends and their professional relationships and activities.
If you’ve got a good thing going, you’d want it to last as long as possible. This is why happy people want to protect their source of happiness. They’re not going to throw it away for some silly things that are going to cost them a whole lot more. They try to make the best of every day.
3. They appreciate everything
Gratitude is often overlooked in one’s quest for happiness. It’s so easy to look beyond the good things you do have and go straight to wishing for things you know are way out of your league.
Let’s talk about money: for most people, being wealthy is their ultimate goal. They think that when they become rich, they can finally be happy. But, oftentimes, this isn’t the case. You can be happy without being wealthy. Try to appreciate the gift of life, family and friends, good health, etc. And enjoy your partner, your children and your friends to the fullest. But money is not the most important thing in life, is it?
I married recently as you can see in the picture at the head of this blog. And I am a happy person both in my private and in my professional life and I am finally happy with myself….because that is where happiness always starts: with yourself, don’t you agree?
4. They have a good sense of humor
Happy people know how to roll with the punches. They don’t dwell on whatever negative thing’s happening to them right now. They take it all in stride. They try to find the humor in everything and have a positive mindset.This is why happy people are such a joy to be with – they help other’s see things in a different and more positive light.
