What is your definition of happiness? If you also think, it is the luck of one of the most subjective concepts exist, because someone can mean happiness, surrounded by loving family and close friends, and on the other hand, that could mean that, a life free from commitment, a prestigious job and enough money that you spend somehow what they want.
I think on some level we all know that happiness is a choice each day, so luck is really what we are talking about in terms of quality of life.
Suppose you have a clear picture in my head of what true happiness will look like for You-the things, people and circumstances in your life in order so that you think they're pretty happy to be available. What now?
Now, assuming that your current reality is at least slightly behind their ideal, there are two easy ways to be happier.
Improve your reality ... or lower your expectations.
Remember that I said that they are not always easy simple ways. Let's take the example of the difference between the two options to show.
In our example, we will say that you are the parent, the work was growing a career for several years, and as a result, a bit of spending time with your family. Lately, you begin to believe that as much as a job you enjoy true happiness and a life's worth of close family and spend more time with your kids while they are still young.
To improve your current reality, you will have to find a way to spend less time at work (and come up with what it means for your career), and more time at home. You need to determine what is right for you and not only does not mean "quality", you will negotiate with family members to its own activities to surrender, fulfilling your intentions to spend more time together.
On the other hand, you can live Your life-expectancy lower decisions made up until now-make the most of your time with your family, and hope that the perspective will be quite long.
