When one door of happiness closes, another opens, but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one that has been opened for us. Happiness is not something ready-made. It comes from your actions. – Dalai Lama
A lot of times in life, we give up when things don’t go the way we want them to. We become so focused on our current situation that we forget to see the unlimited possibilities and miracles around us. But what if we chose to see the good in every situation? What if instead of doubting our future, we believed that anything was possible?
The future is always unknown, but that doesn’t mean it has to be scary or filled with doubts. By choosing to have faith and see the unlimited potential around us, we open ourselves up to limitless possibilities and a world of happiness. So don’t wait for things to happen to make them happen. Live each day to the fullest and believe in the power of miracles.
- Recognize that not knowing is fine.
Uncertainty isn’t necessarily bad. It is a part of life that we must accept and learn to live with.
Otherwise, life might be a never-ending battle.
You don’t need to know what the weather will be like tomorrow. This is the only day you have, so concentrate on it, make the most of it, and let life decide what happens next.
- Trust the flow of things.
You should not only let things be on occasion, but you should also learn to go with them, trusting that the universe knows what is best for you.
This will give you peace of mind and prevent you from feeling overwhelmed.
- Stop imagining the worst-case scenario.
The scenarios you’re creating in your imagination are a trick of the eye. In this situation, not knowing what lies ahead is a positive thing, because there’s a decent possibility it’ll be fantastic.
Don’t let fear of failure, doubt, or pessimism keep you from living life to the fullest. Leave them at home.
- Bring yourself back to the present.
By letting go of the past and future, you can begin to live more mindfully.
Life is right here, right now, in this lovely moment. The best you can do is enjoy it, doing things you enjoy, spending time with people you care about, and devoting your time to important activities that will produce results.
Everything else is irrelevant.
- Become more proactive.
What is the point of overthinking, worrying about the future, and whining about not knowing what will happen next?
It’s all for naught. It makes you question why you’re doing things now when you’re still in control of your life and thinking. All you have to do now is return to the present and begin taking action.
Take action. It doesn’t matter how insignificant it is. Write out your vision for your life, define goals, and break them down into actionable steps. Make a strategy, set a deadline, and figure out how to get there.
You’ll know what to do every day now, and doubt will be replaced by action.
