It is a question that mankind has long deliberated on “how to happy in your life and get rid of stress”? This article will consult what some of the great and good histories described happiness as so that you can better achieve it in your own life.
‘The greatest happiness is to scatter your enemy and drive him before you. To see his cities reduced to ashes. To see those who loved him shrouded in tears.’ Genghis Khan
Well if you want happiness it is very clear in Genghis’ mind what you have to do. Maybe the reducing cities to ash part is a bit ambitious for those of us with day jobs but his form of happiness is possible. Your best chance is to very publicly humiliate someone you dislike while destroying all their belongings.
‘Happiness is when what you think, what you say and what you do are in harmony’ Gandhi.
Ever thought you would see Gandhi and Genghis Khan in a list together? This advice definitely appears more socially acceptable. However, many people think things that if spoken or put into action would see them quickly shunned or arrested. This means you would have to change how you think which is quite hard.
‘Most folks are as happy as they make up their minds to be’ Abraham Lincoln
According to Mister Lincoln, it is all just in your head. Simply deciding to be happy or have a positive outlook is enough. If you are always looking for problems you will never know how to be happy in your life. Do not see the Civil War as a huge loss of life, see it as the reunification of a country.
So follow Genghis’, Gandhi’s or Lincoln’s advice but always remember, don’t worry, be happy.
