5 values that lead to a happy life
When the going is good in life, we tend to have this feeling of invincibility.Nothing can stop me! Then, reality hits: that feeling never lasts forever.Tough times strike.Hardship comes into our lives.We begin to struggle and suddenly, it's a lot more difficult to move forward.
This is why any short or long-term strategy for life should revolve around a set of core values that help position us for any external conditions.Tough times will come and go.Tough people last.Tough people - ones who can weather any storm - always have a strong core value structure.
Values give definition, clarity, and foundation that provide us with a game plan - a strategy for how to succeed, find happiness, and navigate life's peaks and valleys.We tend to handle the good times in life, just fine.in our “zone,” we keep accumulating the good things - sort of like a real-world version of Nintendo Mario on his “magic star” stroll.
The bad times come and sometimes linger.A death in the family.The loss of a job.Failure in a personal endeavor.Far too often, we run away from these circumstances - mentally and emotionally.We bury our heads in our smartphones, pray for metaphorical rain, and hope that while we're getting soaked, eventually, the storm will blow over.When we're “ready.”
Let me dispense some wisdom I hope will help you through your tough time:
Embrace the tough times.When you do, you place value on how you can learn from suffering and come back stronger.You'll master one of life's most valuable skills.As you go along, you may find that in order to improve, you need not always try harder, but rather to think and work smarter.
