2True happiness is probably one of the most desired things that exist. However, for some reason it seems as if a large amount of people have trouble when it comes to discovering true happiness. They try and try but for some reason they cannot ever seem to discover true happiness.

True happiness goes far beyond an occasional smile. It is an inner feeling of being content and feeling as if everything in life will always work out. Those who are truly happy are able to overcome obstacles with ease and have the power to see the brighter side of unfortunate events. Basically, their smile is not one that is worn on their face, it is one that comes from their soul.

Are you truly happy in life? If not, do not feel alone. As mentioned earlier, there are many people in the world who are in the same situation as you. There are many different reasons as to why a person can have problems when it comes to being happy.

One of the most common reasons, and the reason we will be going over, is people losing sight of their own path and forgetting what it is that makes them happy in life. People can fall into a habit of constantly trying to make others feel happy. People can also fall into a habit of trying to live someone else’s dreams or follow other’s paths. Any of these will surely lead to the loss of ability to experience true happiness, sooner or later.

While it may be an important part of life to try and help others, we still need to keep our own path and our own happiness in mind. Believe it or not, making sure that you are happy will help you to make others happy.

We all know that happiness can be contagious. For example, have you ever been in a poor mood and then found yourself around people who are happy? I’m sure that you have and I am sure that it was not long before your frown was turned upside down. The same process goes for negative moods. Therefore, if you are negative you will spread negativity, if you are happy you will spread positivity.

If you want to be a happier person and experience true happiness, the type that runs through your entire being, you should consider determining what your path on the journey through life will be and stick to it.

At times it will be difficult to do this because there are many distractions in the world that will try and pull you from your path. When you experience these distractions you must remain strong and continue the journey along your path. Every time you ignore one of these distractions you will be more step further on your path and one step closer to true happiness.

One thing that is important to keep in mind is the fact that your path to true happiness may not involve everything you may think it does. For example, your path to true happiness may not involve being famous or becoming extremely wealthy, the universe may have other things in mind for you.

The only way that you will ever find true happiness is to analyze yourself and determine what it is that will make that happiness become reality. To help you along with this process I have provided a few questions for you to ask yourself.

•Who are you?
By this I do not mean to ask yourself your name, you obviously already know that. What I mean is to determine what it is that you like to do, what you would like your future to look like and the things that make you happy.

•What makes you unhappy in your current circumstances?
This is a very important question to ask yourself and it can also be one of the hardest questions to accept the answers to. Anything that is making you unhappy in your current circumstances needs to be dealt with. In some situations this may involve things that are hard to do. For example, you may be unhappy with the way that a long time friend has begun to live their life. If this friend does not want to change their life they may stray you off of your path. For this reason, if they do not change, you should find new friends.

•When you think of true happiness, what comes to mind?
To properly answer this question you will need to do some soul searching. The obvious answer of a huge house and lots of money will not cut it. You need to determine what it is in life that you desire aside from material objects. There are many things in life that can bring you happiness beside wealth, although it doesn’t hurt.

True happiness is possible, even if it may seem like something that only exists in the movies at the time being. Keep in mind, the only way you will ever be truly happy is by taking life by the reins and leading it down your path instead of someone else’s.

Define your path and begin your journey to true happiness!
