Happiness Graph! Get Yourself a Handful!

Awesome and Simple Happiness Infographic by Mindbody GreenOne of my students, Jenny Reitz of Karma Fly Design sent this graph to me.  It’s beautiful!  It made me giggle.  It REALLY is that simple.  Don’t make life difficult!  Take a look at the graph, how does it make you feel? Does your ego scream, it’s not that simple!  If so, go read this blog.  I hope it helps you use this graph easier.  The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.  It’s simple “ARE YOU HAPPY?”  If the answer is yes, keep doing what you are doing, if the answer is no and you want to be happy, change something!

Here’s the trick though, changing something doesn’t often time mean changing something EXTERNALLY.  It often times means there needs to be an internal shift, your thoughts, your attitude, or possibly your beliefs need shifting.

If you are not happy ask what needs to shift so that you will be happy. Watch as you pick things external of yourself.  This is the ego trying to keep you safe and blame others for your unhappiness.  Now if you really want to get happy ask yourself again what needs to shift so you can be happy, dig deeper, what can YOU do so that YOU can be happy.   Remember that you cannot control much outside of yourself so now that you know your happiness is in your hands go get yourself a handful!

Life is meant to be playful and beautiful.  A controlled and disciplined mind will bring you everything.

Sending all my Love,

Sandra Vanatko

    That’s the best flow chart ever. How simple and lovely. I swear I need one of those charts for my classroom. Then, when a student are having a day, I can just direct him or her to the chart. Good stuff.
