The benefits of being happy everyday can never be overstated when it comes to self-improvement. Happy people tend to always have a positive mindset and this affects their perception of themselves, other people and life in general. These ones are friendlier, more socially attuned and more productive than people that always seem to have something to feel down about.
When it also comes to dating, happiness makes you a magnet to women because they’ll view you as a guy who’s confident about himself and cool to be around. Being in a happy mood makes you optimistic and helps you stay motivated enough to be able to achieve your goals. But how is it possible for one to remain happy even when things doesn’t seem to be going our way? How does one become genuinely happy when as a proactive people, we’re bound to occasionally experience life’s ups and downs?
Retaining A Happy Mindset Daily
Many people are looking for the answer to the basic question of how to be happy.
We all want to enjoy life and avoid suffering, but there’s more to it than just that. So here are some habits and shift in mindsets that I’ve found to be of great benefits when it comes to finding true happiness everyday.
Get Over Your Anxieties: Most of the times when we’re not happy, it’s usually as a result of something that we’re uncertain of how the outcome will be. “I just invested some money into … and I don’t know if it was a good decision”, “I just bought a car but I’m afraid I may lose it someday”, “I’m currently doing well in life financially but I’m worried tomorrow might not be this way” and so on… Anxiety easily rips us off our deserved happiness but not to worry though, you can start taking steps to reduce your anxieties right away

First off, I’d like to clarify that the form of “arguing” I’m referring to in this post are those situation where we find ourself trying to shove down our own ideas and beliefs into someone else’s throat just because we believe ourself to be right and the person we’re confronting is the wrong one, resulting in us trying to tongue-force the person into subscribing to our own ideas/beliefs through arguing with them.
There is no point in arguing with people who already have their minds made up. It takes up your time and energy and doesnât produce any tangible results. It ends up with you getting angry, trying to convince someone of something that truly doesnât matter at all.
But I donât want people to think Iâm such and such!
Why? How does you taking time from your life to pander to other people make any difference. People who are prone to arguing and name-calling have a very hard time understanding anything. No matter what you say they are going to think whatever they want to think. No matter how much you argue and pander you canât change someone who has their mind made up. Just let people think whatever they want and go on with your life.
Weâre scared of words for no reason. We argue against words like it changes anything or makes any difference. It doesnât make any difference. Theyâre just words. Sometimes they have a basis in reality, sometimes they donât. You can argue for or against the words as long as you want but it changes nothing about you as a person.
Winning an argument is always tempting though. Who doesnât want to be right? OR Have the last word? OR Be the meanest and sharpest and smartest with their words?
Trying to control another personâs opinion oversteps

After 14 months away I find myself back in the the UK for a brief visit. Family and friends, hi and bye, that type of deal.
Visiting is fine and dandy but I wonât have any regrets when I get on a transpacific plane and head back out into the wild.
I donât have any âhard feelingsâ about the UK, I was born here to my Nigerian parents so that makes me a Nigerian too but I find my choice to live abroad to be one of the better choices I have ever made.
I get asked all the time why I donât live in UK but rather choose to live abroad.
Iâll tell you why, in the simplest manner I canâŚ.
I donât live in the UK because I donât want to.
I live a life of choice and I have chosen to live abroad.
When you have the choice, the ability to do anything, you start to ask yourself questions like âwhy?â.
- Why do I live here or why do I live there?
- Why am I working this job I hate?
EtcâŚ When you can answer the âwhyâ question you may realize you have no reason to do what you are doing.
You may realize you have the power to choose.
You may realize one simple fact of life: you can change the things you donât like. You may realize that you arenât stuck.
- Suggested Reading: How To Get Past The Sea of Hesitation Blocking Your Dreams
There are those people who’ve gone past the blooms of their youthful and energetic days and are now living a life of wishful regrets because of the things they wished they could have done when there was still time:
- I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life other people expected of me.
Being lazy is not a good thing, it prevents us from living our life to its full potential and you will never know how much potential you have in becoming a huge success unless you get off your back-side and do something about it! If you are a self-diagnosed couch potato then chances are you are here because you figured something has to change in your lazy life.
I personally know what itâs like to be a lazy person. The days spent on the couch watching âFriendsâ and âThe Simpsonsâ with a big bag of doritos and a pint of coke were admittedly great, I enjoyed it, there is no harm in admitting it. However one day I finally decided to take a good look at myself and what I was doing and said âWhat is this doing for me? Am I getting anything from sitting around watching TV all the time?â My answer was YES â Iâm getting; bored, unenthusiastic about everything (even the things I usually liked), bags under my eyes, untidy, and most of all Iâm not going anywhere in my life. And of course not to mention my family were getting fed up with me.
Overcoming laziness, or the ability to do things that we do not want to do, is a crucial part of gaining success. Things simply have to get done and we have to do them or make sure they are done. When we come to terms
with this fact, that we will have to do unpleasant tasks to become successful, it makes it a whole lot easier to just âbuckle upâ and do the tasks we know we will have to do at some point anyway.
Success is the result of a few big tasks done and accomplished and a whole bunch of miniscule tasks done and accomplished. Today we are going to focus on how to get all those small tasks done that we just donât have the desire to do. Successful people make sure small tasks get done as quick, painless and efficiently as possible while lazy people procrastinate and let the small tasks go unfinished for far too long..

Hello everyone, today I’m a bit exhausted but still managed to find my way over here but I wont be able to write a new post though. Here are 3 of my timeless personal development blog posts that you might have missed.

- Some Rules I Learnt About Making Money From The Richest Man In Babylon – If youâre one of my esteemed ardent readers here on DanielUyi.Com, you must have noticed that Iâve always been centering my recent blog posts around dating and living consciously, but in this article, I wrote something that best fits into the finance category that I got inspired to write after reading a very educative book that was first published in 1926, titled The Richest Man in Babylon by George S. Clason.
- Why Few People Succeed And The Many Fail – In this post, I discussed about how we unknowingly accept less than we truly deserve out of life simply by doing all we can to avoid failure. I know this might sound a bit confusing but go read the article for a better understanding.
And that’s all for today, see you tomorrow.
