Happiness is Taking a Risk!
Happiness is the resultant of the relative strengths of positive and negative feelings rather than an absolute amount of one or the other. ~ Norman Bradburn
The fact of the matter is that becoming happier means two things that people are often incredibly averse too, the first is change, the second is risk. I would argue that the reason most people don’t like the first is because of the second. You see whatever our current situation it is a safe proposition, we know what to expect, we know how the day will turn out, usually as a result of what are expectations are when it started. So in order to get happier, we have to give up the comfort of knowing what will happen and how things will turn out.
We have to take the risk that whatever changes we make in order to get happier may backfire and in fact, make us less happy. We have to escape the expectations we have had like climbing the walls and escaping the castle in the photo. If the changes you make are accompanied by the mind-set that the change will make us happier, it very often will. So my friends, take a chance, tweak your attitude and have a happier day and take your first step to a happier life ~ Rev Kane
I never thought of happuiness as a risk, but I guess it is exactly that.
