Inner Peace and Joy Daily Meditation Tip: The Book of Psalms will uplift your soul. Read Psalms chapters 61-70 for a Spirit Booster!

You have probably heard this saying before, "The definition of insanity is doing the same things over and over again and expecting to have different results. " Well the saying about insanity holds true for happiness as well. It is insane to believe that you will achieve true happiness if you continue doing the same things which have led you to be unhappy in the first place. If you want to be happy with yourself, then you are going to have to identify and change all of the things that you are presently doing which has lead you to experience unhappy results. For starters, you can change your attitude.

Change Your Attitude
Now, what if I told you that happiness is a choice and people who are not happy with themselves have made the decision to be unhappy. Would you believe me? Well, it is the truth. In fact, every morning that you wake up you have the same opportunity as everybody else in the world when it comes to being happy and that is you get to a chance to chose to be happy or you can chose to grumble about what is going wrong in your life. When you chose to grumble about what is going wrong in your day, your past or even your present circumstances, then you can rest assured that you will experience unhappiness.

How to Have a Positive Attitude
When I was growing up, I can recall hearing a fable about a woman who was known for always having something positive to say. The saying went that you could never get this woman to find fault in anybody or say anything negative period. It became a game for people to approach this woman just to try to get her to say something negative.

Well, one day, a man approached the positive woman with the intent on getting her to say something negative. This man believed that without a doubt he had finally found the one person who the positive woman would have to say something negative about. Guess who he picked? He picked The Devil. When the man approached the woman, he said to her "What about the Devil?"

The woman who is always so positive thought about it for a moment and then she said, "Well, the Devil is always busy." The positive attitude that the woman maintained in this fable is the kind of attitude that you must have in order to be happy with yourself. True happiness lies in your ability to always find something good to focus on.

When you change your attitude from focusing on all of the negative things in life and you start focusing on all of the good things in life you will definitely see a change in your attitude. Your attitude will change from being negative and grouchy to being positive and happy.
