St. Paul’s Keys to Happiness

Many of us are looking for the key to happiness, health, and success. But we often miss it because sometimes the books we read make it sound like it’s such a difficult process to be happy in life. And especially when we look around, and see that almost everyone we know is struggling, and only a few people seem to have a magic key that unlocks their desires to them.

Well you are not alone in this quest. Several years back, a group of people felt the way you are feeling and now, and met a sage for the secrets to happiness and general success in life, and like you they thought it was going to be some very difficult task. But surprisingly, the wise man told them these simple words;

“Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable – if anything is excellent or praiseworthy – think about such things.”

Folks if we learn this habit of always thinking and talking about only the good and positive things in our lives, we attract more of those things to our lives. Think about it, 99% of the time many of us are always talking about our problems; how we don’t have money; how we are sick; how life has been difficult; how our partner/spouse is misbehaving and so on, and the more of this we talk about, the more we experience the challenges and difficulties.

I have been privileged to be around a number of successful and happy people, and even the ones who are not so spiritual so to speak, never talk about their problems. Instead they talk about the successes in their business; how their children are doing great in schools and receiving awards; how their partner/spouses have been very supportive and loving to them etc.

Do you think they don’t have problems? You will be surprised at how mush these people have got to deal with, but they understand that they must think and talk about the good things happening in their lives if they must have more of them.

Christ said, ask and you will receive, seek and you will find, knock and the door will be opened to you. But many of us are knocking on the wrong doors, seeking for the negatives and problems, and of course, since this is a law, we must receive, find, what we look for. This week, deliberately focus on, and talk about the things you like in your life, your partner/spouse, and the see the difference it’s going to make in your life.

Live your greatest life!

  1. I agree, too many people speak of their problems. I agree, that we as a society have to “Believe” in positivity, to produce a positive world. But, I think your message should be more about complaining and not acting. We should talk about our problems, when we need help to solve them. Too many people talk but refuse to act. We need to work together to alleviate so of the stresses. The relationship between words and actions are power. But we hear too many words that aren’t acting. So, we have a lot of idle people, waiting for faith to function with walking towards it. Love the message, I just needed to add, that it’s okay to talk about problem. It’s not okay, not to progress from those problems. Remember, the biggest stress comes from not sharing and pretending you don’t struggle.
