Questions to Ask Yourself

On a scale from 1-10, how important is happiness in your life?

What is your definition of happiness?

What or who is subtracting from your happiness today?

Are you as happy when you’re faced with life’s inevitable challenges?

Answer YES or NO:

Can other people hurt your feelings?
Can other people offend you?
Can other people disappoint you?
Do you blame other people for how you feel?
Do you blame your circumstances for how you feel?

The Formula for Happiness

Happiness is a practiced skill. And like any other skill, the more you commit to the practice—and it is a daily practice, the better the results. The question to ask yourself is, are you ready to prioritize happiness over everything else? Your answer will determine how much happiness you will experience on the journey.
