The first question we ask ourselves when a relationship isn’t working or a job is going south or we just start to feel unhappy or unhealthy is “What am I doing wrong?”. Maybe, just maybe, asking what we are doing wrong is exactly what we are doing wrong! Maybe we would find better solutions if we were to ask instead “How could it be better?”.

How about we stop asking what we are doing wrong in a relationship or our work and simply ask ourselves Am I happy? Do I need to make some positive changes or do I need to find something/someone better? In regards to our health, Am I happy with the way I look, think, sleep and feel? Do I need to make some positive changes or do I want to kick myself in a couple of years for not starting right now?

This is not just about positive thinking. This is about positive doing. If you are not happy, if you feel unsatisfied, if you feel like you are not on the right path…CHANGE! Think about what feels right and start taking steps in that direction. Stop living a life of putting up with things. Start planning your escape from unhappiness.

Is it difficult, painful, scary and upsetting to make changes, to leave a secure job or relationship, to start dieting and exercising, to meet new people, to go back to school, to move? You betcha! BUT there is no greater feeling in the world than to wake up happy and you deserve to do that every morning of your life.

If you feel happy, feed that happiness with every ounce of your being. If you are unhappy, well what are you going to do about it?
