At the end of your life, do you want to say that you pursued every dream (no matter how big or small), or do you want to say that you took the safe and easy route?

9 Skills You Need to Live a Happy Life

Life is short. That’s what makes it so beautiful and bittersweet. But there’s something worse than death – not living your life. If you're not chasing dreams and doing the things that make you happy, then you’re just sitting in a waiting room until your number is called.

Many of us let fear, anxiety and stress get in the way of our path to joy. Tapping can transform your life by helping you let go of these negative emotions and welcome positivity. It can help you to build crucial skills to learn how to live a happy life.

1. Create a Plan for Your Happiness

You should never try to build a happy life without having a plan. Creating a good plan for your happiness will help to take you from where you are now to the happy life you are dreaming of.

Follow these steps to create your happiness plan and live a happy life:

  1. Describe why you want a happy life
  2. Determine what skills you need to build a happy life
  3. Decide when and in what order you will build these skills
  4. Commit to your goal to have a happier life
  5. Learn how you are going to work on your happiness skills

2. Improve Yourself to Live a Happy Life

The first step to building a happy life is believing in yourself and your ability to enjoy this world. Engaging in personal development is a major step to your happiness.

Here is how you can develop your personal skills:

  • Build a growth mindset that focuses on your confidence in your ability to be happy
  • Define your values
  • Understand what a happy life entails for you
  • Record your personal development progress
  • Get help building a happy life if you need

3. Beat the Fear and Worry

How many things have you worried about today? Most of us go through the day worrying about everything because life is serious, right? If things don’t go as planned, the sky will come falling down.

But here’s a secret: everything you want is on the other side of fear. So what if things don’t go as planned? Things may turn out even better than you’d imagined. If not, you learned a lesson.

Stop worrying and being afraid. Let go, and dive in. Otherwise, you may miss a chance you will never get back.

4. Don’t Be Afraid to Fail

Failure is a part of life. It’s how we grow and overcome challenges. If we succeeded with everything we did, we would never learn anything.

If you have a dream that you never pursue, then that is also a form of failure. Better to have tried and failed than to have never tried at all.

If you chase a dream and it doesn’t work out the first time, this gives you the perfect opportunity to examine what happened and learn from it. What can you differently next time? Failing doesn’t mean giving up. It’s just one more life lesson you can use to help you achieve your goals.

5. Be Open to Change

We can’t predict the future, but we do know that it will be different from today.

Why? Because life is change. Everything is constantly evolving. What's here today may not be here tomorrow.

That's why it’s so important to love and appreciate all of the beautiful things in your life right now. Accepting change means knowing that good things won’t be around forever. You appreciate everything in every moment and aren’t surprised or devastated when things inevitably change.

6. Think Positively to Live a Happy Life

If you learn to think positively in any situation, even the most undesirable life challenges will become more enjoyable, leading to a happier life. Positive thinking is the key to a happier life.

Here are some tips for thinking more positively to feel good and reduce stress:

  • Enjoy positive moments
  • Help your brain get used to positive thinking
  • Pay attention to the good things in life
  • Practice gratitude
  • Every morning, imagine how your day will look like in a happy life
  • Don’t underestimate your successes
  • Create a collection of positive quotes or positive images

7. Be Confident in Yourself

If you don’t have self-confidence, it is easy to fall into a trap of thinking that there is something fundamentally wrong with you. But self-confidence is a skill that can be developed. When you learn how to feel, think, and act in a way a confident person would, you will live happily more easily.

Here are some tips to improve your self-confidence:

  • Imagine your best self
  • Love yourself and practice self-compassion
  • Celebrate your successes
  • Know your strengths

8. Create a Work-Life Balance

If you feel demotivated, exhausted, and in desperate need of a vacation, it means that your work-life balance is off, which could eventually lead to anxiety and depression.

By balancing out your life, you will enjoy all the parts of it a little more and make better use of the limited time you have on this planet.

Here is how you can improve your work-life balance and mental health in order to live a happy life:

  • Establish your boundaries
  • Find out whether you are on the edge of a burnout
  • Engage in restorative practices
  • Do more things that bring your energy and joy

9. Find Your Purpose in Life

To enjoy your life more, you need to feel like it matters. Every person has a different life purpose, and it is important to learn to notice when you find your own purpose. By making your life more meaningful and satisfying, you will live happily with ease.

Here are some tips for finding your life purpose:

  • Define your values
  • Find out what drives you
  • Make positive impacts in the lives of other people
