Nine steps to choosing happiness
Happy. Briefly, the nine steps to choosing happiness are as follows:
1. Intention – Make an active choice and commitment to being happy.
2. Accountability - Refuse to blame others or view yourself as a victim. Assume personal responsibility for your actions, thoughts and feelings.
3. Identification – Look deep within and find out what makes you happy. Make a distinction between what you feel and what others say should make you happy.
4. Centrality – Insist on making those things that bring you happiness central to your life.
5. Recasting – Transform stressful problems and trauma into something meaningful, important, and a source of emotional energy.
6. Options – Approach life by creating multiple scenarios. Be open to new possibilities and adopt a flexible style to your life’s journey.
7. Appreciation – Savor your life and enjoy the people around you. Stay in the present by viewing each experience as something precious.
8. Giving - Share yourself with friends, family and community. Give to the world at large without expecting anything in return.
9. Truthfulness – Make a choice to be honest with yourself and others

Every day we are faced with other people’s behavior and challenging situations. We can choose how to respond. In that moment—which lasts a mere fraction of a second—we can choose thoughts and feelings that cause pain, or armed with the nine steps to happiness, we can choose another way of being.
When we assume full personal responsibility for our actions, thoughts and feelings, small daily choices we make will move us towards our greater vision and open up a whole new way to be, think and live. And, at last, we have chosen what we ultimately desire: a richer and happier life for ourselves.
