Fundamental Points to Increase Happiness

For me to be able to increase my happiness and really succeed in my happiness project, I needed to pinpoint my weaknesses. Below is the list of my fundamental points that I need to work on to perfect my life.

Fundamental Points to Increase Happiness

  1. Learn to truly forgive and forget.
  2. Let go of the past, embrace the present, and plan for the future.
  3. Have structure but be able to go with the flow.
  4. Practice patience.
  5. Find appropriate ways to express myself and my feelings.
  6. Trust in God.
  7. Have confidence in myself.
  8. Be thankful.
  9. Increase my awareness of other peoples needs.
  10. Don't take things too personally.

I realize how simple these may sound at first glance. But sometimes I find myself reacting too quickly to the situation at hand that I just go with my natural instincts (which are sometimes so wrong!). I need to really put some thought into these and figure out just how I am going to make these my NEW natural instincts.

Whew...I've got a lot of work ahead of me!


  1. Good list - I, myself, need to work on quite a few of those too!

  2. That's a great list and some of those things are not simple at all. Good luck with changing your natural instincts. It can be done :)

  4. Good for you! I just came across this post. I actually started my own happiness project. Well actually, I haven't begun mine yet, but I just started reading the book yesterday. I'm writing about it on my blog if you want to check it out:
