If  You REALLY want to be happy, get GOOD friends
But they have to be  GOOD friends. They must be sensible, upbeat and most of all, have good intentions towards you. This last one is very important. Because if they hurt your feelings, or if they reject you, it will hurt you just as much as if  they had hit you with a punch. Emotional hurt is the same as physical hurt. They both effect the same areas of the brain. The cortex and the dorsal posterior insula, are two very powerful areas of your brain, They are both kicked into action by injury to your body or  injury to your emotions. And one is as bad as the other. You wouldn’t let a friend punch you in your  face and you mustn’t let them punch you in your feelings.
What should you do?
Friends are very important to your mental and emotional health. You should have as many of them as you can get. But they must be the right type! Loads of research has been done that show that the wrong type of friends can cause you a lot of mental harm. If you find that you are made to feel angry, depressed or upset by your friends, then get rid of them. Get different ones. That is the simple simple solution. It is very easy to say, understand and believe BUT not so easy to do in real life. You must have lots and lots of good friends. Ones that support you, ones that make you feel good and ones that you enjoy being in the company of. You must build up the number of them in your life.
And you must start cutting down on the other type. The ones that are always moaning, make you feel depressed or put you down. Start off with the worse one first. Start spending less time with them. And, if possible avoiding them altogether. This can be very difficult to do. Particularly if they live next door, are members of your family or you are married to them! LOL!
Some people you can’t avoid. You have to teach them how to become better friends. But that will be another another lesson, in an other article and on another day! LOL!
Following  the above plan will not only give you better relationships, it will also give you a strong feeling of having more control over your own life and you will develop more self-confidence. You will be happier in yourself  and with yourself.
Why will this plan work for me?
Many, many neuroscientist who have examined a large body of work called the Framingham data have found some amazing facts. They found that good behaviours — like quitting smoking or staying slender or being happy —is passed from friend to friend almost in the same way that the ‘flu does. Your health, happiness and even your lifestyle are all linked to your friends and people whom you mix with. If the people you associate  have positive attitudes, have healthy lifestyles and are happy, this will tend to rub off on you. You, too, will have positive attitudes, a healthy lifestyles and be happy. Which means that you could (drum roll) become more successful and healthier as well as happier.
The Bad News
The bad news from the Framingham Report is that it works in both directions.And the same was true of all behaviours. You will pick up all sorts of behaviours that are unhelpful, unwanted and even harmful. The Report shows that over and over again. That groups of friends  can “infect” each other with being overweight, unhappiness and smoking.

Just so you fully understand this POWERFUL, POWERFUL lesson: 

You Want To Be Healthy, Happy And Positive?
Then you must absorb the lessons above. This research is proving that what you achieve in your life, how healthy you are and how happy you feel is strongly linked to the type of people that you mix with. I believe in keeping things very, very simple. Then any message that I give is easy to understand. So here is a simple way to lift your life up to a higher level. Here, again, is how to use these findings.
The Simple Way
Think about all the friends and associates that you mix with.  Think about the affects that each of them has on you. Start to spend more time with the ones that have a positive influence on you.  Start to spend less time with the  people who have a negative influence on you. Keep making steady progress in both areas.
As I said above this is a very simple plan. BUT it can be very hard to follow.
So What Is The Secret Of Success?
Do a little but do it all the time, as and when you can. A very important presupposition of The Happy People is that a SMALL change can make a BIG difference. DO  NOT try to make big changes in your life overnight. Make small but steady changes and be determined. Make GENTLE progress. You want to EASE negative people out of your life. Not turn them into eneemies.
Or you could become one of The Happy People and associate yourself with other people who want to have lots of GOOD relationships, be successful and enjoy every moment of their lives. It’s totally FREE. Just follow this blog. Easier still follow it by email.

More soon, Love, Peace and Happiness.

Are You Ready For Happiness?
How will you know when you are ready for happiness? Well I’m assuming that you have already decided on starting your journey to increasing your own personal happiness and you are now ready to begin working on yourself. You’ve decided that your life is not what you want it to be You want to be happier, to start being more successful in what you like doing, to get more of the good things in life. Things like love, good relationships, wealth. You must start  moving forward on your journey.
How Did You Find This Happiness Blog?
Perhaps you read a book or heard something or even become one of TheHappy People.  Whatever it was that got you started isn’t important. What is important is that you get started and keep making good progress. To do this you must know what to look for so that you know that you are making progress. I am going to tell you some signs to look for.
Happiness Progress Signals
Everybody is chasing different dreams. So they will get different signals about their progress. Keep this in mind as you read this. Use your imagination to fit the advice into your dream of what happiness is for you. In the beginning you will notice a change in yourself. You will start becoming more aware of how you feel. At first it may a feeling of pleasure  when you are doing something. You say to yourself: “I feel good doing this.” You start being aware of  how you feel  at times, then at more times, then all the time. You realise that some things make you happy and other things make you unhappy. The next stage is that you start avoiding the things that make you unhappy. This awareness is hard for me to explain because it can happen in so many different ways. The next stage is that you stop doing all the silly, senseless, non-logical things that have been making you unhappy all your life. And replace them with things that bring you rewards, joy and pleasure. That sounds simple, doesn’t it? Almost too simple. Well that is how I am going to teach you. I’m going to keep it so simple that you can’t fail and will make steady progress. Small, easy, simple steps so that you never put a foot wrong. As you grow in your power and experience and confidence,  you will naturally move onto bigger things. But in the beginning you must keep it simple. See the tips below at foot of article.
How Can You Do This?
How do you stop doing things that are messing your life up and start doing things that will give you everything that I want? The rich, rewarding, enjoyable life that some people are having but you’re not. Before going any further, just let me remind you that you are entitled to be having that good life. Your nervous system is designed to take you there. And when you get there, you will know. Your mind and body will tell you that, at last, you are living the right way. Your life will fill with  laughter, love and achievement. You will draw good things into your life. You will be living the Law Of Attraction as set out on The Secret and other such works.
How Will My Happiness Grow?
Progress is different for everybody. I remember Mary who came to one of my group meetings and left 90 minutes later a completely changed person. So much so that when she got home, her family noticed. Mary was a perfect example of what a person can achieve. She came in with a glum expression and was complaining about being fed up and depressed about the life she was leading. Before the meeting was over she was laughing and smiling. She was joking with the other people and making them laugh. She continued in the same way and was the life and soul of all the meetings she came to. She was a perfect example of what YOU could achieve. Not everybody changes as quickly as Mary. I think that her lightning fast change came from the  misery that she was experiencing in her life before coming to the meeting. She was desperate for change and what she heard did the trick for her.
How Quickly Could I Make Changes?
Other people make these important changes at different speeds. Some do it very quickly (but not as quickly as Mary did) others take a bit longer. I have realised that the stronger you want to change, the more depressed you are about your life, the quicker you will make the changes. Once you start, you quickly become aware that you are making changes that effect your life very strongly.
How To Notice The Happiness
Different people people have different understandings of happiness. And will notice the increase of it in different ways. Here are a few that you may notice: 1) You get up in a better mood. 2) You start looking forward to what you are going to do that day. 3) You laugh more. 4) Other people notice and say things like: “Nothing seems to bother you.” Or : “You seem happy today.” Etc. 5) Nothing seems to bother you. 6) You will move from self centred views to generosity of spirit. 7) Nothing will be too big for you to handle. 7) You will be able to meet and beat adversity I don’t want to go into this too much because everybody will have different experiences. This list is very general. You may become aware of some of the things on it, you may become aware of entirely different feelings. But, believe me, you will be well aware of the changes you are making. This awareness becomes a non-stop trickle of good feeling. And the trickle grows to become a powerful river flowing through every part of your life.
How Can I Make Happiness Grow Even Faster?
Like I said. Search Google for ‘Happiness’ to learn about the latest research by the Neuroscientist s! Search Amazon for the mountains of books by the traditional gurus and Neuroscientists, Psychotherapists and researchers. The best way, of course, is to join The Happy People (But I would say that, wouldn’t  I?LOL). All that you need to do, to join, is to follow this blog. It’s free and you can get help when you run into problems on your climb to a bigger, better, more bountiful lifestyle..
Final Happiness Tips.
Keep it simple. Start with small, easy steps. Do not advise, lecture or nag other people about their unhappy behaviour. Remember the Tenth Ox Herding Meditation painting. You turn people on by your example. By your having a great life. Let them ask for advice. (For now, anyhow.)
FINAL, FINAL TIP (Please notice the capitals!)
The above advice is for YOU, yes YOU to make changes for and to YOURSELF, yes, YOURSELF. Do not try to change the world ! Not just yet anyhow. When there are more of us….. Then we will have some FUN. Believe me, that is a promise LOL
I said FINAL, FINAL TIP but I was only kidding. See you soon, Love , Wealthand Happiness, Tommy.

Why have feelings of depression?

Happy Furry Friday, folks!

Happy Furry Friday, folks! (Photo credit: Wikipedia) Do I Look Depressed?

What would stop you feeling depression?
What would make you happy?
What are the things that you want in your life? If you are like most people you would prefer a life that is full of great relationships, to be wealthy and to be successful. So why do you not feel happy most of the time but instead feel lonely, disappointed and depressed?

What Stops You?
The answer is, in short, because you don’t know what to change or how to make those changes that you need and want and should have. The answer is also simple. You do not understand this very simple rule of life.
If you keep on doing what you have always done, you’ll keep on getting what you’ve always got. Here it is even simpler: If you do exactly the same old things this week as you did last week, you’ll  get the same old results this week as you did last week i.e feeling bad.
Let me put that to you again. If you do the same things this week that you did last week, the same things that made you sad, disappointed and disappointed, then those same things are going to make you sad, disappointed and lonely THIS WEEK as well!
AND the following week.
So what must you do?
Let Me Give You A Simple Example:
If you drive somewhere and you run into lots of traffic problems, the next time you go there , you try a different road. If this way is quicker and less troublesome, then you use the new road. Or, if you are one of The Happy People, you will look for an even quicker one. You  already know that, don’t you? It’s only common sense. But common sense is not that common. People very rarely use it. Or they only use it on little things. If you want big results, YOU have to make big changes. But be aware that, as soon as you start making these changes, your life will start to change in many ways, believe me!
