Happiness is something that everyone wants in their lives. And when asked most people are going to say that they are happy, even if that’s not the case. Interestingly some people have found ways to become happier in all aspects of their lives.
Are You Happy?
It’s an interesting question. The quick response of most people is yes. Yet is it really a truthful response or are people answering without really taking the time to actually think about it is the ultimate question? Considering that on average there are over 45 million searches a month on “how to be happier”, I’d lean towards the latter. Especially when one looks at the proliferation of tips and suggestions on becoming happier that come up in a search on the interweb of things.
The experts have some fairly common sense suggestions on how one can become happier. Many of these suggestions have been around for years. Some highlights from a recent article of 19 tips I read include the following:
- Stop comparing yourself to others
- Don’t take yourself too seriously
- Stop being a consumer
- Eat healthy foods and sleep well
And then there’s my personal favorite based on what the crazy cruise family has been doing more of the last five years: travel the world.
All of the suggestions are good and I’ve actually implemented a few myself.
Ways To Become Happier Long-term
After the last two years personally I think there are three things to do that will make you happier in all aspects of your life.
The first is taking the time to discover your definite major purpose. Simply put if you don’t know what you want to life, how do you put in place habits and daily actions needed to achieve it?
The second is to focus on and strive for having a positive mental attitude. This doesn’t necessarily mean being positive all the time, because each of us has bad days or times when negativity creeps into the picture. The best way to develop that positive mental attitude is to utilize what is known as the 7 day mental diet. Not sure what that is? Check out the top box over on the right.
The third way to become happier is by utilizing a set of tools known as the 7 Laws of the Mind. The subconscious mind is a powerful thing and these tools can be of tremendous assistance in guarding what enters the mind throughout the day and night.
The key to the vault though that brings about results is adhering to patience, which the experts highlight as one of the ways to become happier. Why? Because it takes time for things to manifest after establishing the required habits for implementing these three ways to become happier.

Great blog Brad! I was really astonished by the 45M searches “how to become happier”. Now, more than ever is it obvious why Master Key Experience is both needed and important. A lot of people seem not to know (yet) this opportunity.
I too was astonished by the 45M searches “how to become happier.” So, many people are sad or depressed; glad they able to search a beautiful tool and for you to share more of how others can find happiness.
Be happy and follow what Brad is doing to make his life happier too.
When I first saw that stat I actually took a few double takes. And yes it makes it obvious why the MKE is so important.
