4 Beliefs Holding You Back from Being Happy
1. “It’s ok for other people to be happy, but not me.”
Sometimes we think that happiness is something that’s fine for other people, but it’s just not for us. That other people deserve to be happy, but we don’t. But if you tell yourself that you’re not going to be happy, then that’s what will happen.
2. “I’m not meant to be happy.”
Similar to the previous belief, some people think happiness is something that’s pre-determined and you’re either born with it or not. I, however, believe that anyone can learn to be happy with the right skills.
3. “Happiness is outside of your control.”
Unfortunately, if you believe that happiness is outside of your control, then it will continue to be outside of your control and seem to be caused only by mysterious forces. In reality, your beliefs about life and your attitude create happiness, and your beliefs are one thing that is 100% in your control.
4. “I’m too broken to ever be happy.”
I strongly believe that no one in the world is too “damaged” or “broken” to be beyond hope. No matter what your past, you can always choose to start fresh today and create a newer and happier future. It all depends on what you believe.
All of these beliefs have a similar theme that your beliefs create happiness, and what you choose to believe is within your control. Therefore, happiness is ultimately something that’s in your control because it comes down to what you choose to believe about life and having a positive attitude, regardless of your circumstances or situation.
Are any of these beliefs holding you back? 🙂
