What Actually Makes You Happy...

05:38



Ask yourself what truly makes you happy?

 Or more likely what are you chasing for which you think will make you happy?

 Money, health, success, love, a new body? Or maybe you're after a better car, a bigger house, a new pair of kicks, longer hair?




It's so easy to establish and say what will or could make us happy. One of the biggest obstacles we face is happiness and identifying what truly makes us happy. It should be easy really, don't you think?  Yet so many of us seem to struggle and some of us feel selfish when we are actually happy, like we're in the wrong. Many of us fall into the trap of believing we'll be happy when we reach a point where our lives or selves look the way we think they should or are the way we want them to be. We find it hard to discover what we love, establish love for ourselves and find what truly brings us joy. 

For years and years I've believed reaching certain points would instantly make me happy or happier...

 When I was 7 I thought a brand new pencil case would make me happy but I soon got bored and wanted a new one. When I was 10 I thought having a best friend would make me happier but at that age you have a new one every week. When I was 13 I thought if I lost some weight, I'd be noticed by boys, oh and i'd be happy. When I was 15 I thought if I had a gap between my thighs I'd finally be 'petite' and I'd be happy. When I was 17 I thought someone else could bring me happiness and forgot about loving myself. And now the truth is, despite me wanting to reach these points such as a flatter tummy, bigger muscles, better weather, more money, love, success whatever it may be, they don't actually make me happy. Oh and I can confirm that when I found that gap between my thighs, it made me far from happy. 

It takes a lot to come to identify what you're truly happy and passionate about. And no ones happiness will ever be the same. Everyone's definitions and ideas are completely different. But the truth is happiness isn't due to circumstance - which in fact is brilliant news!!! Because this means in order to feel a certain way we don't have to spend loads of time controlling the world around us and waiting for things to be perfect. Instead lets do something, lets choose happiness in the moment. When you do that something amazing happens... You can start to realise what actually makes you happy. 

In work you may dislike your job however enjoy talking to clients or seeing your colleagues everyday. In your personal life do you love spending time with your family or going for long walks by the beach. Maybe you find love from your animals, children or friends. Maybe you have certain hobbies and passions which bring you joy such as running, dancing, painting, baking, gardening! Or maybe you love that time you have to yourself in the morning sipping your awakening coffee or binge watching your favourite TV series. Maybe you're not too keen on your legs but you love your eyes or you hate wearing dresses but can pull off killer gym leggings (I know the feeling, haha). There are so many things around us that don't have to be altered or changed that bring us true joy and whatever it may be enjoy it! 

If you asked me now? I know where my passions lie and the things I love. I love cuddles with my dog Beauty, I love a sweaty session in the gym, I'm passionate in helping other people achieve their goals, I adore spending time with my sister, binge watching Big Brother, drinking iced coffee 24/7 and believe it or not being confident actually brings me so much happiness. It's allowed me to love myself and help others love me too. And rather than constantly wishing I could change this or change that, I've accepted my life and my body and with that comes happiness. Trust me.  

So ask yourself again? What truly makes you happy? Because I can assure you it wont be that 'goal weight', the 'big pay check' or your 'new boyfriend'.

  4. Foreign exchange trading increased by 20% between April 2007 and April 2010, and has more than doubled since 2004. 62 The increase in turnover is due to a number of factors: the growing importance of foreign exchange as an asset class, the increased trading activity of high-frequency traders , and the emergence of retail investors as an important market segment. The growth of electronic execution and the diverse selection of execution venues has lowered transaction costs, increased market liquidity, and attracted greater participation from many customer types. In particular, electronic trading via online portals has made it easier for retail traders to trade in the foreign exchange market. By 2010, retail trading was estimated to account for up to 10% of spot turnover, or $150 billion per day (see below: Retail foreign exchange traders ).

  7. Although the primary focus of the SoftwareKey System is Electronic License Activation and Management, we have many happy customers also leveraging the capabilities of our integrated eCommerce system. Online furniture businesses, for example, have failed for the most part because customers want to test the comfort of an expensive item such as a sofa before they purchase it. Many people also consider shopping a social experience.

  9. The forex market is so large and has so many participants that no single entity (not even a central bank or the mighty Chuck Norris himself) can control the market price for an extended period of time. The recent arrest of the founder of forex trading company Profit Trading illustrates how spurious these claims are, and that these companies are usually fronts for elaborate Ponzi schemes. It used to be very hard for us little people to engage in the forex market but, thanks to the advent of the internet, electronic trading, and retail brokers, the difficult barriers to entry in forex trading have all been taken down. You may request transaction data for up to 15 trades that occur in the same currency pair immediately before and after your trade. Educate yourself: Making money from forex trading, indeed even making a living from forex trading, certainly is possible, but the idea of it being easy and quick is not true,” says Simon Brown.

    It's very, very easy to do and it's something that unfortunately a lot of traders do not do. If you want to make more in less time, set and forget is the answer. DFSA100Liberty House, DIFCGet 25 % Bonus We can't deny the fact that Forex trading is a risky form of investment anyone can venture into. They think about entering a trade and the price flying in their direction for an easy profit and high fives from friends (fantasy), or entering a trade and the price plummeting against them, stopping them out (nightmare). Among the main participants of the forex trading market, one of the most growing segments of the total pool of participants of the marketplace, are retail foreign exchange traders (individuals) who participate in online forex trading for mainly speculative reasons with the ultimate goal of generating a profit from currency fluctuations (market changes), or hedging unwanted currency risk.http://www.forexmastermethodevolutions.com/
