Yes, it could be true that you can hardly afford to renew your tenancy. You probably can only afford few litres of fuel which doesn’t last you through the night. Or maybe your boss is a jerk, yet you can’t quit your job because you need the little cash for survival.

Worse still, let’s say you have been applying for jobs for several years. You had hopes that you should have gotten one in the past year. But here you are, very sad and tired. You have even stopped applying.

What if you are lonely, single, and broke in this depressed economy and it seems the tides are risen against you? Maybe you have even failed your professional exams.

Is there going to be light at the end of the tunnel? Will you ever get a job? Am I getting married this year? Will you ever drive your dream car?

Yes, you can, and you will. All your dreams are still very achievable. And even if your dreams don’t come to pass when you want them to, at least you will always be happy in the process.

To ensure happiness does not elude you, follow these simple rules :

Remain Grateful

Gratitude is a great virtue that unlocks the door of happiness. It releases a fresh breathe of hope, a new start, and of renewed trust.

Gratitude has never ever failed. It is the only guarantee against you having high blood pressure as a result of anxiety.

The whole world is under the control of the Almighty. He hears and sees what you are going through. But he needs to see how grateful you can be. Then, he releases heaven’s supply for you.

Gratitude is the twin brother of happiness. It is what makes the universe go round.

Pay Attention To Nature

Nature is God’s gift to mankind. There are beautiful sceneries around you. When was the last time you noticed the whispering palm trees? When was the last time you gazed at the stars? How about simply watching the birds in contentment as they go home to roost? When last did you take note of the flowers? These are the handiworks of God which He has put in place to bring smiles to our faces.

Yes, appreciating nature unlocks the door to your happiness.

Stay Positive

No matter what happens, always stay positive. Always believe that things would eventually turn around.

Ask Bola Ige who was hawking for his sister in Zaria as a young boy but later became a Minister of Justice and Attorney General of the Federation.

What about Chief Niyi Akintola who didn’t have money to buy a wig and gown as a law student but is now a Senior Advocate of Nigeria.

Ask Kunle Soriyan, who spent nine years in the university before he graduated, eventually finished with a third class, was a cart pusher, sold on the streets but is now a successful pastor, consultant, motivational speaker and life coach.

Let’s face it, everybody has challenges. People everywhere have one problem or the other. The challenges of life do not exclude any one. You only need to manage yours. There are people with worse stories who are still smiling.
