There is no need to look outside yourself for happiness. In fact, if you do so, you will end up disappointed. Happiness comes from within, and it’s something that we all have the ability to create for ourselves. It doesn’t matter what your circumstances are in life; you can still find joy right where you are at this very moment—and then share it with others! Here are some tips on how to do just that:
Don’t look for happiness in other people.
Whether it’s your spouse, your family, your friends, or your colleagues, don’t depend on them to make you happy.
No one can be responsible for your happiness except you. So don’t expect others to be happy when they are not. Don’t expect other people to be happy for you when they aren’t and don’t expect that others should be happy with you if they aren’t either.
Let go of the idea of perfection.
The idea of perfection is a myth. Nobody is perfect, and nobody can be perfect—not even you. If you think there’s such a thing as perfection, then it quite literally cannot happen because it would have to be complete and absolute. You don’t have to strive for being “perfect” any more than you have to strive for being “superhuman.”
Your happiness cannot be based on perfectionism! Why force oneself to believe that it does when it doesn’t exist in our world? Instead of striving to accomplish something that isn’t possible, put your energy towards finding happiness in who you are right now and what has happened in the past (no matter how painful).
Clarify your values, and then live by them.
Your values are the things you hold dear and uphold. They’re not just about what you do, but who you are. Your values are merely words on a page or in a list of priorities if they don’t direct your action. In such case, they aren’t really values at all.
Values help you make decisions. They help you choose between options when everything else feels the same. For example: Is this worth my time? Am I willing to devote this much effort toward this goal? What does it mean for me if I achieve my goal? If success means sacrificing myself for others or compromising my values, would it be worth it?
To clarify what’s important to us and align our lives with our core beliefs and principles is an ongoing process…
Remember to take care of yourself.
Do not forget to look after yourself. It’s easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of life and forget about your own needs. Self-care, though, is important and doesn’t have to be costly or time-consuming. You can feel happier by going on a walk during your lunch break, spending an hour a day playing with your kids, or making sure you get enough sleep every night.
We all face challenges throughout our lives, but it’s important that we learn how best to cope with them when they arise. If you’ve ever gone through a difficult or traumatic experience, it could seem impossible that happiness will ever return. However, it will be much easier than you believe to improve your well-being if you adopt some basic practises (like those mentioned above).
Become comfortable with the idea of change.
Change is a natural part of life, and you can’t avoid it. You can, however, prepare for it by accepting the fact that change is inevitable and learn to live with it. Change is a good thing—it allows us to grow as individuals and as a society. But when change happens quickly without warning or preparation, we often experience negative emotions such as fear and anxiety. To deal with these feelings about your own personal situation.
Smile at least once a day.
Smiling can make you feel better. It is a good way to start the day, as you are waking up and setting goals for yourself. It’s a great approach to reflect on the events of the day and give yourself the reassurance that everything will be alright.
Smiling is also a great way to break the ice with strangers! If someone looks at me and smiles, I’ll automatically smile back because they just gave me their approval of my presence in this world and we’re going to be friends now. And if they don’t smile back or say anything like “Hi” or “What’s up?” then I know that person isn’t worth my time because it means he/she doesn’t appreciate my existence anymore than I do theirs (which isn’t much).
Know that you don’t have to have it all together all the time.
Many of us have a “all or nothing” mentality. Though we strive for perfection, we also find it difficult to acknowledge our flaws. As a result, we believe that we can’t truly be happy since there is always something else we need to experience wholeness or achievement (i.e., losing 10 pounds, getting married, having kids). But, realising that you don’t always have it together is also liberating because it allows you to be more at ease with who you are without feeling bound by an unrealistic standard of perfection.
It helps if you acknowledge these imperfections and embrace them: “I make mistakes sometimes; thank goodness! It means I’m human.” Or: “I am flawed in many ways; it makes me uniquely me!” Or even just: “I have strengths and weaknesses just like everyone else.”

Letting go of unrealistic expectations will help you live your life in a happier way.
Letting go of unrealistic expectations will help you live your life in a happier way. You need to be realistic about what you can achieve, but also be willing to let go of the things that are not important or worth achieving. This will bring peace into your life and make it easier for you to enjoy the good things around you.
There are many ways to find happiness within yourself. It doesn’t always come easy, but with practice and patience you can learn to love yourself for who you are.
