You’ll be more optimistic and have a good attitude

No matter what the situation, there is always more than one way to look at things.  It all depends on where we focus our attention and what our expectations are.  This will determine our attitude towards a matter or towards life in general. 

Truly happy people tend to be optimistic and hopeful.  Their outlook is often positive, and they expect things to work out.  They are resilient and cope well with life stressors and challenges.  They spend time reflecting on reasons they have to be thankful.  Happy people have a good attitude.

You’ll have more confidence and better self-esteem

In order to be confident in who we are, we must be sure of ourselves. 
That means we believe in ourselves, and don’t need to prove anything to anyone.  When we’re sure of ourselves, we are humble and respectful of others.  We are more accepting of them, because we accept and like ourselves.
You’ll have more fun and enjoy things more

Life is fun when we take pleasure in it.  Whether it’s in our work, rest, or play, we can discover fun awaiting us.  Some fun is found in humor, accomplishment, laughter, entertainment, or simple gratification.  If we make time for fun, life will be much less complicated and much more enjoyable.

Truly happy people know how to enjoy themselves.  They can find humor and amusement in simple, everyday things.  They don't always take everything so seriously, but laugh more often, even at
themselves, when they get a chance. Happy people have
fun and enjoy things more.

You’ll be healthier both physically and mentally

Research continues to confirm that our bodies and minds are closely connected. Unhealthy bodies have decreased mental energy and lower moods.  Healthy bodies have increased motivation, endurance, and energy.  We have one body to live in while here on earth.  With proper care, it will function at its best and keep us healthy and happy. 

Truly happy people take good care of their minds and bodies. 
They realize that the way they care for themselves will be evident
in how they feel and look.  They have respect and gratitude for
their bodies so they avoid what is harmful and do what is good
for them.  Happy people take proper care of their health.
You’ll have more love in your life & fulfilling relationships

We can’t live a happy and satisfying life without love.  And we can’t love life without loving people which includes loving ourselves as well.  Life is all about loving and being loved.  That is why relationships are so precious and valuable.  They provide us endless opportunities to experience and express love without which we would never know true happiness.  
You’ll have an inner peace that can’t be easily shaken

   If we know eternal, abiding peace, life’s storms and challenges
   won’t hinder or frighten us.  Come what may, there’s a place of
   security and calm for the one who has inner peace.

Truly happy people can release their burdens and cares.  They know their limitations, and accept what they cannot control.  They don’t give in to fear, but conquer it instead.  They take time to reflect and take in
the beauty around them.  Happy people experience inner peace.
You’ll live your life with purpose and meaning

We’ve all been given one life to live, and deep inside of us is a desire to live it with meaning and purpose.  Ultimately, we decide what we are going to do with our lives.  Our journeys will lead us into a life of meaning and purpose depending on which paths we choose to follow.

Truly happy people have vision for their lives.  They believe they have a calling to fulfill.   They like to use their gifts and talents to contribute to something bigger than themselves.   They often see
themselves as conquerors and winners.   Happy people live with purpose.
You’ll grow in wisdom and make better choices

If we want to become wise, we must learn how to apply our knowledge in the best possible ways.  When all of our knowledge and learning helps us to make good choices, and keeps us humble and willing to learn more, we are growing in wisdom. 

Truly happy people make good choices.  They think ahead and consider the possible consequences to their actions.  They want to gain knowledge and seek understanding.  They want to learn, and are teachable and willing to listen.  Happy people grow in wisdom.
