Be a Motivated Happy Person

For the past month or so I have been positively overwhelmed with wonderful guests; my amazing parents and my beautiful mother in law. Even though I intended to constantly write and post but well, I have been joyously busy. Which brings me to what I want to write about, surprisingly it is something I just realized today, just today, which is that even when everything is going perfectly and you are happy you still need motivation, more so than when you are bored and lazy.

When you are bored, upset or lazy you need to be motivated to accomplish something to be happy and satisfied, when you are happy however, you are already happy you do not need to be motivated to be motivated to accomplish something to be satisfied, which is the worst way to get off track. No matter what your goal is, you cannot be blind sighted by temporary happiness, you need to keep your eyes on the prize, being happy is good, but it is the ultimate goal we are after, the lasting happiness and satisfaction, short term happiness should not derail you from the ultimate goal of becoming better.

What I have realized is that being a happy motivated person is more effective than a motivated sad person, because happiness can fire up the passion in your heart, but do not let happiness stop you because when this jolly moment ends you are still there, stuck, still the you that you want to improve, except less motivated and less driven.

Take Charge to Happiness

We usually blame everything around us for the crap that happens to us, we constantly complain about how we hate our jobs, school, environment, the place we live in, our surroundings, anything or everything else. I know that because I did that, people and the circumstances around us may be horrible, we may be treated in the worst way possible and we might be in the roughest circumstances imagined, never the less there is always a way to get out of all the horrible in our lives.

All we need is to take charge. Take charge of your life, if you are being undermined, work harder to improve and prove yourself. You hate where you are then figure out something you love and do it until you can leave. You do not like the people around you, well they are not all bad, just find one person and stick to them. You hate your school, well everything comes to an end. You hate your job, either find another one or find a way to make it better.

I have been in all these situations and I still am in some, I keep blaming it on every single thing that I can think of, and yes they might be truly horrible and those things might be true, but we have to take charge. I remember when i was younger my brother used to always tell me that if you blame everything around you it does not prove that everything is bad it just proves that you are weak, and my God did I hate it when he said it, but nonetheless it was true.

Unless we enjoy being sad or addicted to feeling like a victim (which means we probably need therapy), then we need to do whatever it takes to be happy, take charge of your life don’t let people and circumstances dictate who you are and what you do, develop a thicker skin and upgrade yourself, let your self-actualization come from within and start being happy.
