The Most Powerful Tool to Be Happy

 What is the most powerful thing to be happy? 

All of you are looking for happiness, but you don’t realize the most important tool to obtain it. 

You think that happiness is far away, and desperately you keep seeking for it. 

However, happiness is not somewhere far away, you can find it JUST in front of you! 

It is appreciation that all you need to be happy is. 

The more you are thankful, the happier you feel. 

In the case that you are not satisfied with the current situation, you generally think, you would be grateful if you were in ideal circumstances, 

However, if you change your mindset, you can find ‘appreciation’ in the present condition. 

You can breathe fresh air. 

You can see stunning scenery. 

You can walk outside freely. 

You can eat delicious food. 

Actually, you live in a world full of happiness, but you take it for granted and miss it. 

Conversely, if you want to be unhappy, it is easy. 

You only need to focus on what you don’ have. 

If you are always complaining that you don’t have enough of this or that, and then you will be unhappy. 

Many problems may appear in your daily life, but you should not count what you haven’t got but do what you have got. 

Happiness is not somewhere far away, that is right in front of you! 

‘Appreciation’ is the tool that lets us notice that.
