People want to be happy and have a good life. We want to feel like we are connected to ourselves, our world and to other people. We want to be a part of the universe and to make a difference in everything we do.
We also want to be able to be proud of what we have accomplished and to know that we lived the best life we could live.
Everyone is different as to what they feel their best life is. Life is full of values and full of differences and each person must choose what makes them happy.
Stopping the Best Life
Living the best life is what you feel a best life is. Whatever you want to do in your life will depend on if you feel your life is your best life or not. What kind of expectations do you have? What does happiness mean to you? Sometimes people base their happiness on what the world expects and these kind of expectations can cause stress and hardships because of what society believes.
Society has a long list of expectations such as what to wear, what kind of career to have, what kind of relationships to be in and more. They want people to be connected but sometimes it seems like the world brings the opposite feelings. Trying to do what society believes does not always make people happy and it is up to you to decide what happiness means.
What do you feel the best life you can live is? What do you need in order to live your best life?
Being the Best You
If you want to be the best part of yourself, be who you are and not what other people want you to be. Pay attention to what you are good at and what makes you feel happy and stress free.
Stop forcing yourself to do what other people want you to do and remind yourself that it is your life and not someone else’s.
Look at You
Figure out who you are and notice how you respond to things that happen to you. Pay attention to your habits and what makes you feel good and what upsets you.
Notice things in your life and if you need to, write a list of what makes you happy and what makes you unhappy.
Take time to notice the bad habits that you have and figure out what would make you feel good. If you spend too much time watching television or on social media, does that make you feel drained? Do you feel sick after you have a glass of wine late or eat a lot of sugar?
Do you regret things you do? Look at these things and figure out what gives you happiness and builds your energy and then stop doing the other things that cause you to be drained and unhappy.
After you know what makes you happy and what doesn’t, figure out other things that can give you a good life.
Know what your purpose is and set goals. Figure out goals that you can reach and work towards them each day. Define your goals and even take time to write them down. By writing down your goals, it can help you to stick with them and to make them happy.
There is a difference between setting goals and setting intentions. You need to make sure that you are being positive in your intentions and your goal setting and you will get things done faster.
Intentions are more motivating because when you do not reach a goal, it can be stressful or upsetting but if you do not reach an intention, you know you can try again.
Write down your goals and your intentions and figure out what time frame you can work it out in. If your goal is to work out, start a couple times a week and then focus on reaching that.
Imagine what your best life looks like to you. What does it make you feel? What can you reach that can give you a positive mind?
Imagine your goal and focus on it. Once you accomplish a step towards it, let your mind go further and let your intentions and your goals happen.
Figure out how you can reach your goals, how to get to them and what you will feel when you reach them. Ask yourself questions so that you can know you are taking good steps.
