Plus how your happiness can become a magnet to others’ happiness as well.
We shall explore what happiness truly is. We shall discover why happiness is a state of mind… a powerful and profound mindset. You will learn the ‘7 Laws of Lasting Happiness’.
You shall be inspired by the best of the best quotes about happiness. We shall finish by including ‘favorite asked questions’ about this profound and powerful emotion known as ‘happiness’.
Happiness sometimes is the hardest thing to grasp. We work, we slog, and we grind without resting. We toil away on a daily basis for hours on end, but are we happy?
For many, happiness is often confused with joy. Joy is fleeting happiness that can be experienced when in the middle of a positive event. Happiness is a more lasting feeling that can be achieved simply by finding out what makes us happy.
Happiness is like a magnet. It has a powerful positive influence on everything it touches. It attracts friends, money, health, and love. If you want to increase the amount of happiness in your life… try this: Think about all the really happy people you know… what makes them happy?
Once we find what happiness means to us and we have attained it, then it becomes a powerful magnet of attraction. So yes, your happiness is my happiness and vice versa. Others’ happiness will attract more happiness to you as well.
In the best-seller, “Art of Happiness”, Dalai Lama, talks about how he personally achieved inner peace, calmness, and happiness. His basic tenant is simple: “The Purpose of Your Life Is to Seek Happiness”.
In her best-seller, “Feel The Fear And Do It Anyway,” Susan Jeffers says, “Happiness is a state of mind. It is a conscious decision.” In other words, if you want to be happy, you have to be aware of and decide to be happy.
Happiness isn’t just one state of being; it’s also a mentality. It’s the ability to take what life has given you and to personalize it in a way that benefits you. Realistically, happiness is simply a by-product of living a loving, meaningful life.
Happiness is so important to us, both as individuals and as a world, primarily because happiness is really all there is. In fact, the quality of our lives is ultimately ENTIRELY determined by our emotions and happiness is one of the most powerful.
Since happiness is attracted to happiness, you should surround yourself with more happy people (as much as possible).
Who are the happiest people you know? Maybe they are your coworkers, your neighbors, or your family members. Whatever. The point is, the people you spend the most time with are the most important people in your life. So, if you want to be happier, start by becoming happier yourself and then, spread your joy to others.
The power of the mind is like a magnet, it can draw certain events, circumstances, and people into our life.
The mind resembles a powerful magnet. It is composed of the thoughts you think. These thoughts are like magnetic currents. So… if you think positively about some event or action, you get positive results.
Or more importantly, if you conscientiously choose happiness for yourself, you then, in turn, will attract like-minded people who are happy as well.
Because all happy people (at least most of them) seem to have something in common. Namely: They all seem to have an “openness about them.” They seem to radiate joy and contentment.
Likewise, this magical power of ‘magnetic attraction’ easily can expand exponentially as you attract more and more ‘happiness-minded people’ into your inner circle.
Lasting happiness is not a goal most of us ever achieve. It’s something most of us only dream about. But it needn’t be that way. You see, lasting happiness does NOT depend on things outside of our control. Rather, it depends on our state of mind. And our state of mind is completely within our control. Here are seven laws of lasting happiness:
2. Happiness is wholeness, and every step and experience is what makes you whole.
3. Happiness lives in all the small things.
4. The secret of everyday happiness is not in always doing what one likes, but in mindfully liking what one does.
5. You can’t be happy unless you’re unhappy sometimes too.
6. A happy life story does not mean an easy life story.
7. Happiness is an evolving mindset.

Happiness is a powerful human emotion that typically is described as feelings of joy, satisfaction, contentment, and fulfillment.
Happiness and meaning are strongly correlated with each other, and often feed off each other. The more meaning we find in life, the happier we typically feel, and the happier we feel, the more we often feel encouraged to pursue even greater meaning and purpose.
According to the December 30, 2019 article from What are the Four Levels of Happiness – 7 Summit Pathways , the 4 states of happiness are:
Level 1: Pleasure
The first level of happiness includes the fundamental drivers in your life — physical pleasure and immediate gratification. This form of happiness is relatively short-lived and shallow. Examples include a delicious meal, new clothes or even listening to your favorite music. Although not inherently wrong, getting stuck at the first level of happiness is a constant roller coaster of seeking satisfaction in temporary desires.
Level 2: Passion
Whether it’s a hobby or getting recognition at your job, being passionate about something is an excellent source of happiness. Yet it’s usually based on a need to satisfy your ego.
Passion is needed to gain self-confidence. However, if you get stuck at Level 2, you may become obsessed with winning so much that you feel the need to keep others down. This type of happiness is not enduring.
Level 3: Purpose
When you feel like your talents and skills allow you to serve others and are part of something bigger, this can give you a sense of purpose, fulfillment, and long-term happiness. Everyone wants to think that their life has meaning. Deeper, longer-lasting happiness grows as you make a positive difference in the world.
Level 4: Ultimate Good
The fourth level of happiness is known as the ultimate good. This is a fundamental desire we have as human beings for perfect truth, goodness, beauty, and love. Many people find this form of happiness through their religious beliefs.
True happiness is the ability of living in peace and harmony with your mind, body and soul. It is being comfortable with who you are. To be truly happy, you don’t need other people or material things. Happiness is the consequence of your own personal effort and living a life of purpose.
You have more power over depression than you think. To find out how you can ‘refind yourself while facing everyday life struggles’, check out this recently newly published book on Amazon, “I Just Want To Be Happy Again’.
In the end, it doesn’t matter much as to what I or anyone else says about what it means to live a great life. What matters is what you decide what it means to you and what happiness looks like in your life.
The truth is, you already know what makes you happy. No article or piece of advice is going to have more of an impact than what you’re capable of doing yourself.
By doing less and simplifying your life you can remove the unnecessary from your life and emphasize the things that build a happy lifestyle. Because when it’s all said and done, the one ultimately responsible for your happiness is you.
So yes! Your Happiness is My Happiness and My Happiness is Your Happiness!
We are all at some point in life at least once when even surviving requires being selfish and there’s nothing wrong with that until and unless your love for your own good does not affect anyone around. Seeking happiness at the cost and expense of others can never be justified.
Happiness does not come without suffering. When people think that they are happy and nothing else matters, often they forget that their happiness might be the outcome of someone else’s sufferings i.e. being happy at the price of agony and stress.
Life can be very unpredictable and has a lot of variables. It is very unlikely that every other day will be the same for you. You might be sad today but it will get better tomorrow and vice-versa. This is how life is.
Every day will be different than the one that passed and the one that you are living right now. You don’t have to be afraid of becoming happy, so take a break and give yourself some slack and stop overthinking. Your happiness can and will not be snatched.
Have you ever heard people saying, “Nobody can love you unless you learn to love yourself”? This statement is very much true. If you are struggling and want reassurance and someone to be by your side to constantly remind you of your worth is not the right thing to do.
Your happiness definitely depends on you, making right and wrong decisions might bring you to the paths that you had never imagined but eventually you will figure it out, on your own, yourself.
If you have attached your happiness with things that are temporary, people who you know will not be with you forever; this is going to be a problem. The love and happiness that is coming from external sources will never be constant.
Here are some ways to detach yourself from external things to keep your sources of happiness unaffected:
– Accept what’s coming to your way i.e. responsibilities
– Always look at the brighter side of the story
– Start looking for happiness within yourself, attach your sources of happiness from within
– Complain less, be more acceptable
Here are some amazing and famous happiness quotes to make your day, full of love and contentment:
Happiness is the joy of living, the thrill of achievement, the sense of self-fulfillment, the pleasure of working hard, the enjoyment of loving and being loved, the pride of doing well, and the sheer ecstasy of creating something which endures.
It isn’t what you have, or who you are, or where you are, or what you are doing that makes you happy or unhappy. It is what you think about.
