Recent studies show that happiness increases by ten percent on Fridays. The joy of looking forward to a great weekend takes away all the tension and eases our minds. We are free and want to make the most of every minute. Most people dread Mondays and just scrape through to the weekend. In his book, Joel Osteen shares with us seven secrets in order to have the same amount of happiness every day of the week not just on a Friday! Lets take a small glimpse at these secrets:
Dont give away your power Since happiness is a choice that we ought to make, we should be careful not to give away our power and settle for unhappiness. When we stand our ground, we can have a fulfilled and happy life.
Know what to ignore There will be so many things against us. But, we should know which battle to fight and which ones to ignore by looking at the big picture. We should learn to ignore the backbiters, naysayers, gossipers and people limiting us and fight only the battles that matter.
Live without crutches Our choice to live a happy life should not have any strings attached. We should stop comparing and competing with others and should also cease going around for the approval of people in order to approve ourselves. When we just relax and stay on the high road, the right people will automatically come into our lives.
