3 mindset shifts that will make you happier

Gratitude is the way to what you want

According to the law of attraction you attract what you give out. If you’re happy you bring happiness to you. If you’re feeling poor you’ll bring more feelings of lack into your life. Being grateful for what you already have is therefor going to result in more of those things being manifested in your life – that being material things, relationships, money, opportunities, freedom etc.

Besides that, being grateful is going to make you feel happier instantly. I think it’s important to understand that if you’re not happy now – you will not be happy when you get what you want either. This is because you’re carrying with you the same mindset. The mindset that happiness is in the future, and that there’s always something missing.

We can always have more and do more, theres just no end to it. The universe is abundant, and that’s both an amazing and hard thing to deal with. Be grateful for what you have right now, and you’ll both be happier and see those things expand in your life.


Being happy for others will bring happiness to you

It’s easy to get jealous when we see other people succeed – because on some level we think that the fact that it happened to them means it won’t happen to us. But again, the universe is abundant. There’s no lack of anything.

When I see other people succeed I get really happy because of tree things. 1. Happy people are the most beautiful people I know – I love having them in my presence. 2. The fact that someone has got what I want means that getting it is absolutely possible – for me too. I see it as a sign from the universe that what I want is very close to me. 3. We attract to us the feelings and thoughts we have – which means that by being happy for other peoples success, I’m attracting success to me, too.


Forgiveness feels so good – it’s like a magic key to happiness. And once we understand that the feelings and emotions we’re expressing only hurts ourselves, we are free.

Let’s say someone did something horrible to you – and you’re holding grudges towards that person to make them pay for what they did. This is actually just hurting you – not them. You are the one sitting with these bad emotions, the other person can’t feel them unless they choose too. Your emotions are your emotions.

You can forgive someone inside yourself – you don’t have to include the other person at all. You can sit down, think about the situation that happened, see what you can learn from it and then choose to be grateful for that lesson and move on. Release the anger and disappointment, and go live your happy life. You don’t have to have that person in your life, you dont have to speak to that person or tell them you’ve forgiven them – just forgive them for yourself.
