Owning our happiness means undertand how we bring about our own joy. When we own our happiness, we realize it's a mindset. It's focus, how we pay attention to our life and our world. Our moments of feeling good are characterized by a whole different way of paying attention than the moments of feeling less than good.
The global study I did for The Joy Of Thriving indicated that the happiest people undertand the core of happiness as how we pay attention to in our life and world.
The happiness mindset begins with this simple, empowering realization that the quality of our happiness is equal to the quality of our focus. Happiness becomes more possible in shaping our focus with the way we define and live out our purposes and connections. This makes happiness something we do rather than something that happens to us.
