7 C’s to Live a Happy Life

7 C’s to Live a Happy Life

It's all about quality of life and finding a happy balance between work and friends and family.
Philip Green

To live life is to be happy. Here are the wise things you can do to live your life delightfully:
1.      Choose: Life is about making choices. Even if you do nothing. It is still a choice not to act. Choose wisely and act promptly. Do not be afraid of making mistakes. Making mistakes are part and parcel of going forward in life. It is a way to learn valuable lessons. The most important thing is not to repeat the same mistake.

Your life is the sum result of all the choices you make, both consciously and unconsciously. If you can control the process of choosing, you can take control of all aspects of your life. You can find the freedom that comes from being in charge of yourself.
~Robert F. Bennett

2.      Change: To change is to do things differently. It is to look for a breakthrough in life to get better in what you do. The idea is to be more productive.

Unless you try to do something
beyond what you have already mastered,
you will never grow.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

3.      Contribute: To contribute is to provide value. At work you contribute by increasing the revenue of the company or reducing expenses. At home you contribute by spending quality time by sharing household chores or interacting with your children and spouse.  In order to get what you want, you contribute or give.

Whatever you do or don't do in your lifetime,
your best contribution to those around you
and to future generations
will be in the happiness and joy
you generated and radiated to those around you.
Jonathan Lockwood Huie

4.      Commit: Be committed to your work, your family, your health, people near you and the environment. Take good care and you will reap the benefits.

Once a man has made a commitment to a way of life, he puts the greatest strength in the world behind him. It's something we call heart power. Once a man has made this commitment, nothing will stop him short of success.
~Vincent "Vince" Lombardi

5.      Celebrate: Every day may be an ordinary day, but celebrate every new day. Rejoice and live the way you want to be. Live in the present and treasure every precious moment. Life is to be enjoyed fully here and now. Don’t hold on to the past and worry about the future.     

If you aren't in the moment,
you are either looking forward to uncertainty,
or back to pain and regret.
~ Jim Carrey

6.      Count: To be happy in life is to count what you have. To be miserable is to think of what you want for the things you do not have. Count you successes and achievements to boost your confidence.   Do not dwell on your setbacks or defeats to dampen your spirits.

Count your blessings. Once you realize
how valuable you are and how much you have going for you,
the smiles will return, the sun will break out,
the music will play, and you will finally
be able to move forward the life that God intended
for you with grace, strength, courage, and confidence.
~ Og Mandino

7.      Create: When you want to be a writer, there are many top writers out there; you have to be outstanding and different to get noticed. Conceive original ideas in your writing to get ahead and stay ahead.  Be resourceful and creative in what you do.

 There is no doubt that creativity is the most important human resource of all. Without creativity, there would be no progress, and we would be forever repeating the same patterns.
 ~ Edward de Bono

Take chances in life, chose wisely, make changes, be creative, be committed and contribute greatly so that you can be happy and successful.  While you are on the journey of life celebrate every new day and count your blessings.
