Just like success, happiness is not the result of only a few significant moments. It grows from consistent actions that build up to become a wave of momentum that propels towards your goals. Happiness is a daily choice we can make, and it all starts with courage. This week, we’ll be sharing about consistent actions we can take to find happiness today.

Knowledge To Level Up 📚

What can we do today to be happy? Each of us has daily responsibilities that may not be satisfying to work on. Do we take this as a sad fact of life, resolve to live miserably, and idly spend our days until our next vacation?

The Courage to be Happy: True Contentment Is Within Your Power

In this follow-up to the international phenomenon The Courage to Be Disliked, discover how to reconnect with your true self, experience true happiness, and live the life you want.

Key Takeaways:

  • Adlerian psychology is a horizontal relationship-based psychology of democracy. Aim for equal relationships of respect. Do not look down or up at others.
  • Community feeling is seeing with the eyes of another, listening with the ears of another and feeling with the heart of another.

Accept Past Trauma

  • When you don’t have courage, you focus on only the things one cannot change and lamenting, ‘So, it’s impossible.’
  • We either blame ‘that bad person’ or plead ‘poor me’. We tearfully complain about the unhappiness that has befallen them. Or, they speak of their hatred for the other people who torment them and the society that surrounds them. Do not seek temporary solace. Always ask - ‘What should I do from now on?’

Be Self-Reliant

  • All human beings start off with an almost excessive self-centredness. They would not survive otherwise.
  • However, one cannot reign supreme at the center of the world forever. One has to make peace with the world and come to the understanding that one is a part of the world.
  • Self-reliance is ‘breaking away from self-centeredness’.

Love Is The Answer

  • Love has neither self-interest nor other-interest—it rejects both. It changes the subject of life from me to us. Therefore, it is through loving others that we gain self-reliance.
  • Loving someone is not simply an intense emotion. It is a decision, it is a judgment, it is a promise. Without thinking about a future one could never comprehend, or about a destiny that could never exist, one simply engages in a dance of the now with the partner before one.
  • Become comrades with that person in front of you. That every day, small accumulation of confidence will someday get rid of even conflict between nations.
  • It starts with yourself. Even if there is no one who understands you or supports you, first must carry the torch. It will reach and attract others. To have others believe in you, so you believe in them first.
