9 Small Changes Daily
At WOW, Our #1 Metric for Success is Happiness
Happiness is the only TRUE measure of personal success. Here are nine small changes that you can make to your daily routine that will immediately increase the amount of happiness in your life:
1. Start each day with expectation.
If there’s any big truth about life, it’s that it usually lives up to (or down to) your expectations. Therefore, when you rise from bed, make your first thought: “Something wonderful is going to happen today.” Guess what? You’re probably right.
2. Take time to plan and prioritize.
The most common source of stress is the perception that you’ve got too much work to do. Rather than obsess about it, pick one thing that, if you get it done today, will move you closer to your highest goal and purpose in life.
3. Give a gift to everyone you meet.
I’m not talking about a formal, wrapped-up present. Your gift can be your smile, a word of thanks or encouragement, a gesture of politeness, even a friendly nod.
4. Deflect partisan conversations.
Arguments about politics and religion never have a “right” answer but they definitely get people all riled up over things they can’t control. When such topics surface, bow out compassionately.
5. Assume people have good intentions.
Since you can’t read minds, you don’t really know the “why” behind the “what” that people do. Imputing evil motives to other people’s behaviors adds extra misery to life, while assuming good intentions leaves you open to reconciliation.
6. Eat high quality food slowly.
Sometimes we can’t avoid eating food quickly with all the rushing in life today. Even so, at least once a day try to eat something really delicious, nutritious, and yummy. Focus on it; taste it; savor it.
7. Let go of your results.
The big enemy of happiness is worry, which comes from focusing on events that are outside your control. Once you’ve taken action, allow for Universal Intelligence to move. Above Down Inside Out expression of YOUR Higher Purpose!
8. Turn off “background” TV.
Many households leave their TVs on as “background noise” while they’re doing other things. Why subliminally program yourself when you can become a deliberate manifesting machine. Leverage silence and your Innate Intelligence!
9. End each day with gratitude.
Just before you go to bed, write down at least one wonderful thing that happened. It can be small or big. Love and gratitude are the highest expressions and they do change YOU at a cellular level.
