11 THINGS HAPPY PEOPLE DON’T DO

Sometimes we find ourselves guilty by association and therefore if your objective is to be happy and you find that the people you spend most of your time with are doing things that will only keep them in the state of unhappiness, you know what to do. You don’t, but you may have heard that if you can’t change your friends, change your friends. Well, what is it that happy people don’t do. When you are happy, you shine brighter and do you want to shine brighter? I bet you do!

“It’s not happy people who are thankful. It’s thankful people who are happy.” -Unknown


Let’s see how many of your friends or yourself are free of these practices that contribute to unhappiness.

“Some cause happiness wherever they go; others whenever they go.” -Oscar Wilde


Some of the things happy people don’t do are:

  1. They don’t compare themselves to other people.
  2. They don’t care about the opinions or about what others think of them.
  3. They don’t bring people down or magnify the bad things in people.
  4. They don’t hold themselves hostage to their past mistakes.
  5. They don’t wait on you to love them before they love themselves.
  6. They don’t ignore their passion for pursuing some other endeavors so they can be accepted by others.
  7. They don’t envy others for what they have, but focus and be grateful for what they have.
  8. They don’t surround themselves with people whose agenda is to talk negatively about others.
  9. They don’t wake up daily and look for all the things that are not going right, to dwell on.
  10. They don’t give up a moment or a chance to make someone happy.
  11. They don’t allow hate to occupy the heart, because before they hate they forgive, and show love to themselves as well as others.

Don’t take what you have for granted.

THE MAGIC OF EMPOWERMENT

People change. Don’t give up on our youth!

When we empower others, the outcome can be magical. Our youth is our future. Therefore, it is imperative that we empower them. Do you want to see our youth experience more magical moments? If you do, let’s take every chance we get to lift them up or better yet, acknowledge their achievements. In fact, it’s a win-win when we empower our youth as they will later have to do the same.

To make your empowering experience magical, you will have to or best if you have respect for those you want to empower. Yes, show the youth that you respect them. They will, in turn, respect you. Remember, respect should not be forced or demand. As a child, they told me that respect gets respect. Besides, we should take the opportunity of being influential or as role models seriously and even though you may not be able to change the world, you can impact at least one youth positively.

To encourage our youth, and to give them our unconditional support will help them to tap into their greatness.

We all want to know that others believe in us and when others believe in us we are more likely to do better than we would otherwise if no one cares. Can you empower our youth? You can, and a fancy title isn’t necessary. If you can let them know you care, acknowledge their achievements and don’t be judgmental, you can be in the business of empowering our youth. We cannot and should not leave it up to anyone, in particular, to empower our youth, we all should play a role in the process of them living their best life.

One of the greatest feelings is to know that you have touched someone’s life positively.

Be on the lookout for the youth who are hungry for personal growth because they are out there and as you mentor or empower them to their greatness instill in them the importance empowering others.

By influencing others, we’ll have more influential people.
