Now, with all that free stuff, the objective of this New Year article is to really get you moving on making this year your best, happiest year ever.   While that’s a big objective, it is certainly do-able.  It starts with...

Your Definition of Happiness

To achieve the objective of making the next year your best, happiest year ever, the most important starting point for anyone to be as happy as possible is to make sure you know your own personal Definition of Happiness.

We are all different in what would make us happy in life. What would make me happy is likely different from what would make you happy. So, to start off the New Year, make sure you know your own personal Definition of Happiness

Believe it or not, many people don't really know what would make them happiest in life.  In other words, if you were to state what would make you totally and truly happy in life, what would you say?  Most people would say things like "more money", "a better job", "a happier relationship", "less stress", or something along these lines.  And sure, all those things are great, but they might not really be what would make you truly happy in life.  In fact, most people who get all those things find out that they still aren't really as happy as they could be, since those things aren't necessarily their true Definition of Happiness.

And figuring it out may not always be an easy thing to do. It can require considerable thought and introspection. But, it is one of the most important first steps to leading a happy life. 

So, if you don’t already know what would make you totally happy, click on the "Get Instant Access" button below to create your personal Definition of Happiness (and I'll give you the two free ebooks below if you didn't already take advantage of my free book offer above). It will surely help you start the New Year off right.  Do it now, click on the button below, get your Definition of Happiness Creator and the free ebooks, then come back here to keep going...

Now, to continue with this "New Year Process", let me give you an exercise which could either help you create your definition of happiness – or, if you already know that definition – could help you fulfill it more easily.

Here’s what to do:

During the rest of the month of January, write down – everyday – something you want to do, achieve, see, experience, or contribute in your life. It could be as “small” as “see the Grand Canyon” or as “big” as “go on a year-long ‘mission’ helping to feed starving people in a third world country”. It could be related to your personal life (like “have a child”) or to your professional life (like “become the CEO of a Fortune-500 company” or "start my own business"). It could be contribution-related (like “become a big-brother or big-sister to a needy kid”) or financially related (like “build a five-million-dollar net worth”).

Whatever it is, write it down. And do it every single day for the rest of January. By the end of the month, you will have a list of 20-30 things you want to do or experience during your life.

Then, use the information I’ve mentioned in this series - and in the BeHappy! Blog to fine-tune and “crystallize” that list into some powerful, action-oriented desires and plans for this year and beyond that will make you happier.

So make sure to write down something everyday – regardless of how small or insignificant it may seem right now. Everything could be important to your ultimate happiness – and the happiness of those you love.

Use the tools I have provided for you above. 

Use this website regularly to keep focused on the positives of life, appreciate what we have (rather than dwell on what’s missing), and maintain maximum “productivity” towards consistently making life better. 

Check out the "Additional Resources" on Goal Setting below.  They will definitely help you become more successful and have the best 2015 ever, which is the goal here.

It’s important to realize that all these tools can make any time of the year happier, more fulfilling, and more productive. In fact, I would venture to say that if you were to use, practice, and implement many of the concepts here in your daily life – throughout the year - you will be much, much happier a year from now than you are today, regardless of the circumstances and difficulties you will encounter along the way (and which we all encounter in this crazy, complex world today). So, once again, HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

BeHappy! my friends
