No matter how many times you’ve heard the word happiness, it’s not until you actually achieve it that you realize how few of us actually know what it means to be happy. Most of us chase happiness in one form or another, whether it’s wealth, fame, or even love and relationships, but we don’t always understand what true happiness really is—or how we can find it. Here are two keys to achieving happiness that may surprise you: zero expectations and let go attitude.
What is happiness?
Happiness can be defined as the presence of positive or pleasant emotions ranging from contentment to intense joy. Happiness is different for everyone, but it’s important to have balance in your life. For example, if you only focus on work without taking time to relax or have fun, you may not be happy with the outcome. On the other hand, if you only enjoy time with family without focusing on work or school, then you are missing out on opportunities for growth and success. The key to happiness is balancing the good times and bad times in life – finding that perfect equilibrium.
The importance of having zero expectations
If you don’t have any expectations, you won’t be disappointed. If you do not know what is going to happen, then anything can happen. It’s best to just take things as they come and not expect anything in return. That way, if something good happens then it will be a happy surprise and if something bad happens, there was no expectation so no disappointment will come with it. It’s best to live in the moment without any expectations at all because that is when true happiness is found.
The importance of having a let-go attitude
To experience true happiness, two things are essential -zero expectations and a let-go attitude. Think about it this way: the more you expect to be happy, the more disappointed you’ll be when your hopes don’t materialize. And if you’re already happy, your mind will focus on what’s not going well in order to maintain that feeling. On the other hand, if you have no expectation of being happy (or anything else), then nothing can disappoint you.
How to achieve true happiness
To experience true happiness, two things are essential -zero expectations and let go attitude. When you have zero expectations, you don’t worry about what will happen, which in turn allows you to fully enjoy the present moment. And when you have a let-go attitude, it means that whatever happens is what’s meant to happen. It’s easier to take life as it comes because you know that everything will work out in the end.
