Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times if one only remembers to turn on the light. – Dumbledore/Lord of the Rings
Finding ways to be happy first begins with learning how to negotiate through all the negative thoughts slowing you down and running a 100 miles per hour in your mind disrupting your positive thinking and life.
And now that you’ve decided to take on the arduous task of setting up and taking action on that new venture of a freelancer side hustle you’ve just compounded worry, doubt, and fear that will need to be resolved.
One of the big elements of the power of positive thinking and the law of attraction is to eliminate all the negatives forcing their way into your mindset.
Plus, it’s not a real good idea to eliminate them all because some help you to create a growth mindset that’ll boost creativity, resilience, problem-solving, productivity not to mention the health benefits.
Over the last decade, cutting-edge neuroscience research results and ancient wisdom practices, that have been used for some 2500 years by Stoic, Greek, and Religious Philosophers, are now proven to be the key to unlocking the mysteries of mind, body, and spirit.
Actually opening the door to the happy life that everyone seeks without accomplishing some external task.
It’s been proven that the only ways to be happy are through your own mind. It’s a Mind Game Plain and Simple.
Like any other game to be successful and become the CHAMPION, you must first know the rules and secondly, you have to know and use the winning strategies.
The only issue here is there are countless winning strategies and techniques one can use. So, which ones are best for you?
Well, to be honest, I really don’t know and you don’t know until you give them a shot but trying to gather all that information would take you months if not years.
But you need relief now, with all the compounding frustrations and anxiety over which direction to take in a side hustle. It’s never easy when making a decision, especially one as a freelancer. If you take the wrong path you could waste precious time and energy, not to mention money.
Here’s the good news you don’t have to worry about all that because finding proven methods, exercises, and practices to ease the issues getting you down and learning to be happier in the process have already been done for you in this fantastic infographic put out by Happify.
Look it over and try the different techniques and hang on to the ones that work and can the others. How sweet life can be!
A Mighty Useful Tool This Is!
I would suggest printing this infographic and keeping it close by so that when you get stuck or one of those ugly negatives sticks its head up and tells you-you’re not good enough you can quickly pull out your ace in the hole and find a rebuttal to put it down.
I especially like the “The NEGATIVE KNOCKOUT GAME” where I write down on a piece of paper what’s causing the issue, look at it and say NO WAY, then wad it up and throw it in the can. BAMM! the issue is taken care of or most of the time that is.
If it’s still lingering around and is being a little pesky just ask it for the proof. To give you examples that proves the thought to be correct. It will come back with several but here you want to take each into consideration and analyze logically.
Example: If the thought is you’re not good enough, then ask why and if the comeback is you’re not educated enough, fine, think about it and you can come up with hundreds of logical arguments that education has nothing to do with it. Albert Einstein quit his formal education after the 3rd grade and he’s considered to have been a genius, duh! Get my drift?
Hope you liked what you found? I know I really did!
By adding these practices to your life you’ll find more happiness I’m sure but if you have any questions or comments or just want to chat let me know because they’re not the only ways to be happy for sure.
Happiness & Success Are In Your Hands!
Smile Be Happy.
Like Any Other Game You Must Learn Rules & Strategies to Win Consistently
The other day while doing research for an online project I came across the #1 Online Play, the League of Legends.
What really caught my eye was how many people are playing online games like this.
The stats showed hundreds of millions of people play online, that the average age of the online gamer is 35+, and percent breakdown was men 50% to women 48% which leaves what 2% for all others.
As I continued to dig deeper into the subject I started sensing a correlation between these highly technical no doubt popular online fantasy games and the reality Mind Game to Happiness.
We all know everyone is seeking happiness in their lives and apparently, millions are finding it in these online games even though it may be for a fleeting moment when they destroy the enemy’s NEXUS and claim Victory.

Keep On Smiling,
Statistics show 54% of Americans working today are unhappy with their jobs, I wonder why?
If looks could kill, I’d be dead for sure…
I’m a contract worker, and I accepted a two-month job with a well know company some time back, but how was I to know I was walking into a rattlesnake pit.
The very first day I walked through the doors to the department, I knew something was amiss, the tension in that room was so high it made the hair on my arms raise up.
It felt like I’d just been electrocuted.
This was unbelievable, the entire day continued to make me feel like I had my finger stuck in a wall socket, I thought it would never end.
When I first start a new job, I always go around, and shake everyone’s hand, introducing myself.
There were 40 other workers in the department, and as I went around to greet each one, it was like I had leprosy.
Some just looked at me, turned around, and walked away without a word, some ignored me completely, but there were five that hesitantly shook my hand, and said hey.
Man, you talk about being a brutal beginning to starting a new job.
Who’s In Control Around Here Anyway…
As the day progressed I kept my ears open, and it wasn’t long before it was apparent, what the problem was.
Distrust and anger were running uncontrolled throughout the department. Each individual’s morale was at the bottom of the barrel with no hope for the future.
It had been 10 years since anyone had a raise, and the company management, instilled fear of losing one’s job to keep them in check.
And it was working, because times were hard, and good paying jobs even harder to find.
That day was so depressing because it was like 40 people had one mindset, pessimism.
I couldn’t believe people would work in such an atmosphere, something had to be done because I wasn’t subjecting myself to such gloom and doom pessimism.
That’s when it came to me, I’d been doing research on the topic of attitude, where all these experts continued to say that a simple smile was contagious, and could change anyone’s day.
Attitude Will Defuse A Time Bomb Every Time…
So if the problem is really out of your control, then take control of what you can.
And here is where I decided to take control and spread a little love. My intentions were to start a movement of the heart and mind.
Every morning whoever entered my space would be greeted with a handshake, a smile, and the phrase; “I’m Fired Up! About living and loving life to the fullest, how about you?”
These greetings would be filled with powerful enthusiasm and energy. No matter what obstacles or pessimism would be thrown back at me, I would stay calm and optimistic.
A Journey Always Begins With The First Step…
My experiment started the very next morning, and just as the first morning I had very different reactions, especially to the phrase I was using.
But I would not be discouraged or swayed from my mission of battling the pessimism running rampant throughout the department.
I continued this high-intensity greeting barge every day, and within a couple of weeks, I noticed a shift in attitudes of some of the other workers.
Some were actually walking up to me in the morning with their hands stuck out to greet me, and the first thing out of their mouth was, “you fired up today?”
Change Is The Light At The End Of The Tunnel…
The change in attitude with a spark of hope was set in motion, and over the next six weeks, the results were nothing less than spectacular.
You could still see the distrust towards the company and management were still very much alive, in the hearts of the workers, but they were beginning to regain their own hope for the future.
The final day of my work contract was here, and it was time for me to depart from the workforce once again, but this time it would be an emotional exodus that would leave me with a new found inner peace.
There were over 50 people gathered outside the department doors and with the 40 co-workers that made over 90 people who came to say goodbye that day.
They were all thanking me for the encouragement and optimism that I had given them in my daily actions during the time that I was there.
Many committed how they had learned how attitude and a positive outlook on living life to the fullest every day could help them cope with the daily struggles in life, not just at work.
So, when you find yourself in stressful and frustrating situations put a smile on your face and let its contagious characteristics do their magic…
