Find Happiness By Giving Happiness

By Lance Beggs

Have you ever heard this quote?

"There is a wonderful, mystical law of nature that the three things we crave most in life- happiness, freedom, and peace of mind- are always attained by giving them to someone else."

It's so true, isn't it? I don't know who it was who first said those wise words (if you do know then please tell me), but I have no doubt they lived a very happy life, because they have discovered one of the secrets to happiness.

In fact, the secret to success in all endeavours is found in this quote. No matter what you desire, give first and you will receive.

If you want to receive love, then give love. Not exclusively to one person, but to everyone and everything. Express love to your life, your circumstances, your friends and family, and even the people you pass in the street. If you love all, you will receive love back, and you'll become the kind of person who attracts that special person, and those special relationships, and a life of blissful love.

If you want to get rich then don't do it through the dog-eat-dog world of competition and win-lose deals. Give increased value to others. Wallace D. Wattles talks about this in his book Science Of Getting Rich better than anyone else I've come across (see the Resources Page on my website to get a free copy). You get rich by providing more in use-value than the cash-value you receive. You get rich through co-operation rather than competition. You get rich through providing win-win deals. You get rich through providing others with the opportunities to improve their own lives. Once again, give and you will receive so much more back.

The same applies to happiness. If you want to be happy, give happiness.

Turn your focus around. It's not all about you. Look out into the world and find opportunities to give happiness.

James Matthew Barrie said, "Those who bring sunshine to the lives of others cannot keep it from themselves."

The great Mark Twain said, "The best way to cheer yourself up is to try to cheer somebody else up."

Give happiness and you will get happiness. It's the only way.

Who can you make happy today?

Who can you go and see, just to hang out together?

Who can you phone to tell them you miss them?

It doesn't take much. Smile to someone who is feeling down. Hold a door open for someone behind you. Compliment someone on their clothing. Thank someone for a job well done at work.

Happiness is so easy. Just give it to someone else, and you'll find more than enough is magically left behind for you.

Give happiness. Be happy. And smile!
