Have you ever noticed that some people are always happy? We’re not talking about “glazed over in a trance type happy” but generally happy and they have a sense of peace. It isn’t that hardships and misfortunes never happen to these people. It is their outlook on life when these things happen that makes you wonder about them. What is their secret? It probably has to do with their philosophy of life.
What’s Your Philosophy of Life?
We all have a philosophy of life. We have one that governs our finances and this is displayed in our saving and spending habits. We have one that governs our relationships and is shown through our interactions with others. We have one for work, our professional life and for health in how we choose the foods we eat and how, when and what types of physical exercise we engage in.
Changing Your Philosophy of Life
If you haven’t been making the strides you’d like to in your life, perhaps it is time to change your personal philosophy of life. There are some key elements to crafting an effective philosophy of life. They are simple but important steps to creating the happiness you want and the peace you deserve.
• Interest in your well-being and desire to be happy.
• Research of other philosophers to see what their philosophies are and the patterns that have been put into place that you can benefit from.
• Commitment to your new thought pattern.
• Commitment to execute the necessary steps to implement your new philosophy.
• Reassessment over a period of time, 6 weeks, 3 months, 6 months, etc. to see what benefits you are getting from your new philosophy of life.
Remember, impactful changes happen when we adopt small, incremental changes. You don’t have to do a major overhaul of your life to reap the benefits of a philosophy change.
