4. Find happiness in simplicity. Some of the greatest joys in life are the simple ones. Yet, it's easy to overlook their impact. Instead of striving for complex victories, start with the simple ones. You'd be surprised at how happy they can make you.
· Maybe you love going out for ice cream on a Sunday afternoon. As trivial as it sounds, this may bring you more happiness than buying a brand name handbag!
· The absence of complexity often leads to a stress-free existence. You might think you want a vacation home and a portfolio full of great investments. But, it’s okay if those things aren’t in your life because you can avoid the added pressure of having them.
It's unlikely you'll ever be truly happy if you continue competing in the rat race and comparing yourself to others.
At the end of the day, happiness is what you're aiming for. Forget about competing against the world. Instead, compete against yourself. Push yourself to do more. You'll soon realize that you can achieve more success than you ever imagined.
Affirmation: "I choose to be happy and grateful."
