Top 5 common factors to overcome unhappiness state:
- Being ungrateful & Negativity
- Laziness in setting goals
- Ignoring/ Forgetting the present
- Dwelling on the past & worrying about the future
- Fixing mind on fear mode
People often forget the fact that happiness is like sitting on the edge of a chair and peace is like comforting ourselves on a sofa or easy-chair.
1. Being ungrateful & Negativity
All of us have 24 hours in a day. While this is true and common to everyone, most of us keep complaining on each other and are ungrateful to people and matters around us. Being pessimistic is a self-killing factor. Instead of being thankless, rude and tough, we can be very smiling, optimistic and grateful throughout the day to all.
2. Laziness in setting goals
Goals are a fantastic concept which actually helps us to look up life with new hope. Without fixing smart or precise goals, we simply keep thinking that our goals are not achievable. By being generic in our focus, feel of accomplishment slows down and happiness becomes a distant factor.
3. Ignoring/ Forgetting the present
For each one of us, thought process about past and future has become a combo factor which totally tightens our happiness process. Most of us forget the present moment and we live in a big quantum of guilt thinking of the past and survive with a big thought circle of anxiety towards future.
Actually, happy people know about these “silent killers”- past & future and therefore they only focus on living in the present moment.
4. Dwelling on the past & worrying about the future
Understanding and accepting the past and accepting the ambiguity of future is very important. This helps us not to place unnecessary expectations upon ourselves and as a result “worrying has no place here”
As Mark Twain said,
“Worrying is like paying debt you don’t have”.
Therefore, there is no meaning in dwelling on the past & worrying about the future.
5. Fixing mind on fear mode
As we all know, fear is a kind of lingering emotion which very well gets fuelled and activated by imagination & assumption.
The worst outcome of any danger is only death. So always we need to console ourselves by thinking of the end part of any adverse situation. When we analyze the end part, we will be able to choose the option X or Y. We then feel relaxed when we know the end result.
Happy people are well aware of this tactics and therefore they live in the state of Euphoria. They do not attract fear and instead they face it and think of solutions.
We can live a happy and peaceful life by overcoming all the above mentioned factors.
