7 Things to Believe In

There are two types of people in the world:
those who choose to be happy, and those who choose to be unhappy.

Contrary to popular belief, happiness doesn’t come from fame, fortune, other people, or material possessions. It comes from within! The richest person in the world can be miserable while a person living in the slums of a third world country can be happy and content.

Happy people are happy because they make themselves happy. They maintain a positive outlook on life and remain at peace with themselves. The question is: how do they do that?

It’s quite simple. Happy people have good habits that enhance their lives. They do things differently and they tend to think in a certain way. Ask just about every truly positive person you meet and you will see that they have some [or maybe even all] of the seven core beliefs below…

Believe that you are deserving

You are deserving just because you are here. You are worthy. You deserve eye contact, a smile, a second chance. You deserve to change your mind, to say no, to say yes, to be seen, to be loved.

Believe that love is everywhere

When you focus on love, love is all you’ll see, whether in nature, companionship, friendship, family, and even between strangers. You will see love in many different appearances, like appreciation, joy, amusement, inspiration, awe, gratitude, and serenity. The ultimate belief that will bring any person more joy is to know that you are surrounded by love at all times, even when you are physically alone.

Believe in miracles

Positive people believe that the miraculous is possible. That doesn’t mean they believe in a higher power, per se, but they are convinced that truly great things can happen to you if you don’t let negativity get in the way. Could your life do with a few more miracles? Whose doesn’t? Believe in them, ask for them, expect them and watch for what shows up!

Believe that you are beautiful

Inside and out. Beauty is a word with endless descriptions. It means a lot to everyone of us. Beauty is a positive energy that should come from within yourself, not a state achieved by make-up and varnish. If you want others to feel that you are beautiful you need to feel beautiful about yourself. Your inner beauty will shine if you let it. There is beauty in everyone. You are beautiful, just because you were born.

Believe that you are unique

You are one of a kind. Every person on this planet is a miracle of life, and that includes you. No two people are the same; there really is only one you. You have a special skill set that nobody else can duplicate. Your passions, desires, beliefs, thoughts, body, mind, and emotions are unique. Live to give, share your uniqueness so everyone can benefit from your special skills and talents. Do what only you can do, while on this earth.

Believe that this too shall pass

Everything will work out just fine. Believe and understand that things are always changing and forever evolving. Recognize that emotions come and go and that a bad moment does not mean a bad day. Tomorrow is a new day and things will get better. The key emotion in this positive belief is hope, especially when dealing with a situation where you can easy fall into despair.

Believe in a single good act

A single act good will always have a ripple effect bigger than you could ever imagine. Start good ripples. When you show kindness to one person, you inspire the kindness in others, and who’s to know what the next person will do for someone else?
