Happy to share with you “Seven Happy Habits” from the book “Where can I find Happiness for my child?” The book will be published soon but some excerpts of the book including the “Seven Happy Habits” are available now.
They support life balance and consciousness of choice WHERE and WHY you are going 🙂 and create each day from the Master’s Position. So, below are Seven Happy Habits. They come to me from my life experience and also these habits remind me—I am also a participant in the evolution process.
With love, Olga
Seven Happy Habits
Every day we do many things that are common actions. We often call them habits.
How about adding or developing a few new habits that can bring more happiness and success to our lives?
On this page, I want to share some examples. Some of these habits have been my assistants for a long time and some I am still developing. These habits help to make life brighter, filled with positive emotions, and create a good basis for happiness. So here is “Seven Happy Habits”
Positivism and gratitude
You can always see the world as multi-colored, even on a gray rainy day. The habit-forming question is, “What am I feeling now? How can I find the best colors in a gray situation?” Choose for yourself the best feelings: Feelings – Thinking – Actions – Result. Gratitude supports us. How do we feel when we ask ourselves, “What can I be grateful for in my life? What can I be grateful right now?” And give yourself time to feel the answer with your heart . . .
Self-management and dignity
I can’t change the situation that others have created. I can only change my attitude and my actions. The habit-forming question is, “How do I feel? What do I need to do to keep balance and peace in my heart? What do I need to do to maintain a peaceful space for communication?” We can be supported by our virtue. If we are aware of our dignity, we do not need to prove it to others. When we are aware of our dignity, we will see it in others, and we will respect it in each and every person. Just ask the question every day, “What am I proud about myself today?”
Proactive and resourceful thinking
Knowledge must always be acted upon. I do the best I can do. Remember, actions always speak louder than words. The habit-forming question is, “How can I do it better? What resources do I have, and how can I use them?” Even if the answer is “Nothing!” This is also a resource. . . We can always ask someone to find what we need to know. . . If we ask questions, we will always find an answer.
Self-improvement and creativity
Everything can always be improved. If you don’t like something, you can improve it. Nature is constantly developing and creatively changing. The law of evolution also operates in all spheres of our life. To create the best, we need to learn how to create. This is why creativity is very important. Find the best and turn it into a habit . . . The question to form this habit is, “What should I add for my best life?”
Balance and self-regulation
If you have too many sentences in your life that begin with “I must”, think about how you can replace “I must” with “I want.” For example. “I must clean up my home.” Instead, consider . . . “I want a clean home.” If we feel tired or irritated, it means that the balance in our life has been disturbed. We can always restore our balance by asking, “What do I want?” And give ourselves the space and time to listen to what our heart is saying . . .
Openness and ability to listen to other people
These are your communication skills and the ability to understand people. It is also the ability to see and support opportunities for ourselves and for other people. We can not see the world in its entirety through the keyhole in a door. . . By only looking through a keyhole, you will never be successful and happy. We live among people, and everything that we do is an interaction with them. If we are interested in people and their lives, they will be interested in us. . . To “get”, we must first “give”. . . The habit-forming question is, “What did I learn about someone today, their situation, their life, and their dreams?“
Dreams, and faith in yourself
Dreams are the navigator of our life. When we know what we want, it’s much easier to find our way. When it’s dark – find stars. . . Our dreams help us see the stars. A dream helps us to prioritize. If we have a dream, we can see the dreams of others. It’s easier for people to understand us if they know what we want. People are attracted to follow those who know where they are going. . . People value those who value their dreams. The habit-forming question is, “What is my dream? What did I do today for my dream? How did I support the dreams of other people?”

Why do I call these habits, “Happy Habits?”
Because they help us see the beauty of the world around us and in ourselves, the uniqueness of each of us, and the wisdom and beauty of life. They help create the best feelings and emotions to develop thinking and actions that create the best results. And . . . when we create a harmonious world, we help other people create such a world, because “I can only share what I have”. Our world around us reflects our inner world. It is worth learning how to create the best in our world and support our children.
I continue to learn and develop “Happy Habits”. Why? Because I continue to develop. . . because life and happiness are not a destination, it is a “way”. We create everything in our Life. This is the beauty of life and it is our responsibility. We cannot do this for our children, but we can share with them how to create their “Happy Habits”. Our example will have a much greater influence on our children than our words.
