Do you know the secret to daily happiness? Do you have your own secret to daily happiness? The secret to daily happiness lies in your ability to transform your daily moments. If you do not transform the moments that make up your daily life then your potential for having a happy day will be greatly diminished. God wants us to be happy both here on earth and in heaven. He wants us to be happy now!!!!!!
One step in the right direction would be to try to pray once you wake up. If there is no time, then pray on your way to work. If not pray as soon as you get to work. Keep it simple. Praying simply means you are pausing for a moment to tell God about your plans for the day. Give Him details. Tell Him your main goals for the day and how you hope to accomplish them. This is a very important part of the secret to your daily happiness. It is like having a road map for your journey. If you leave your house in the morning and you start by driving in the wrong direction, you may end up having an accident, unless you realize your mistake and quickly change direction. Another way to change directions when you are lost is to ask for help. Of course you have to be careful to ask the right person. God is always willing to help us if we ask Him.
Our daily happiness is fleeting because we have to deal with different issues and situations through out our lives. We have to deal with work, with our emotions, we have to deal with family, we have to deal our friends, we have to deal with strangers and even sometimes with those we know do not want us to succeed. How can we deal with all different situations and still be happy. We can do this through the concept and act of situational management. This means you have to deal with each situation fruitfully without getting overwhelmed.
You have to look at everyday as a series of moments that encompass the situations and circumstances of our daily lives with opportunities and challenges.You also have to remember that God wants us to be happy everyday, but that we have learn about the simple steps we can take in our daily lives that will help us to have fun in the Lord, to interact happily with our friends and family members. If you want to learn more about situational management and other tips for daily happiness, be on the look out for my new book the, “The Secret to Daily Happiness.”
May God continue to transform and bless you.
