We all go through times in our lives when it seems like nothing is going right and everything is going wrong. Instead of moving forward in such circumstances, we often feel ourselves being pulled down. We feel like doors are being shut on us and we find it hard to stay focused. We lose perspective and find it hard to move forwards.

We tend to forget that this phase is a temporary one and things will get better, because nothing lasts forever, and we will probably emerge as better and stronger people. But, at the time, we feel that things won’t get any better. As a result, we sometimes stop trying.

And, that’s the very reason why, it is very important to learn to stay happy when things don’t go right. It may seem hard when you are going through a rough patch, but if you try - and follow the tips given below - you can stay happy no matter what the circumstances are:

1. Attitude

Happiness depends on your attitude and how you approach your life; it does not depend on the situations you face in life and what happens to you.

2. Thinking

It’s all in the head. As soon as you start thinking positively, you will be positive.

3. Choice

It is your choice how you react to a situation.

4. Focus

Stop focusing on the negative things that are happening; focus on the positive aspects. You will find the positives far outnumber the negatives.

5. Solution

Only when you stop focusing on the problems, will you be able to move forwards towards happiness and finding a solution.

6. Strengths

Focus on your strengths; not your weaknesses.

7. Acceptance

Stop worrying, getting angry or complaining about your problems; it doesn’t help and won’t make your problems get any better.

8. Embrace

Accept the situation, embrace the problem and step-by-step, build yourself out of it.

9. Steps

Take one step at a time and soon you will be running away from your problems towards the solution.

10. Positivity

Stay positive, positive, positive!

11. Self-reliance

Stop relying on people’s opinions and what they think of you; you will be happier.

12. Forgiveness

Forgive; it will give you peace of mind and you will feel much happier.

13. Autonomy

Go out and try something new; it will boost your mood and get your adrenaline pumping.

14. Effort

Don’t wait for the perfect moment to come to you; go out and find it.

15. Resolve

Let it go; let the past go.

16. Empowerment

Smile. Laugh. Try it; you will be surprised at how much it helps.

17. Optimism

Be with happy people; their cheeriness and happiness is bound to rub off on you.

The future is beautiful; the future is bright, but it all depends on you. A new day is knocking at your door; open it and embrace the day with smile.
