Alternative Spirituality Self-Improvement Hack: Don’t Try to Be Happy


In this blog, I go on and on about the importance of creating a strategy for happiness. But if you want to be successful in your search for this elusive prize, there’s one thing you might want to keep in mind: happiness isn’t the method. It isn’t the means. It is just the result. The method–the strategy–is the important thing. And the strategy has nothing to do with your feelings.

It only has to do with your actions.

So. My happiness tip of the day is a very simple one: don’t try to be happy. Make your life better.

Happiness will come pretty quickly after that.
