08 May Achieving happiness – taking control of your feelings
If you want to create an abundance of genuinely positive emotions, then you need to know what’s most valuable to you. How often do you think about your values? The happiest people on the planet do it every day. If you don’t know what you desire and admire, your life will disintegrate into an undirected slide down the path of least resistance.
Living up to your values, on the other hand, will give you a sense of purpose, meaning, engagement and peace of mind – all the essential ingredients of happiness. Another benefit of knowing your core values is that they will help you regain your balance and inner security when you’re facing troubled times. Values are the source of your personal power. Success and satisfaction come from continually striving to reach the positive outcomes that are most important to you while using the character strengths that allow you to perform at your best. Believing in the value of something with your heart and soul will give you passion – that vital force that empowers you to make good choices, especially when it’s hard to do so.
