Change 1 Thing Per Month - Making it Great One Step at a Time
So you're stuck in a rut, bored with how your life is, and you can't think of how to get through this period. Einstein defined insanity as "doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results." So stop being insane?and try something new.
Now I'm not saying you totally change everything you do, and everything you're about. I'm recommending you take baby steps, and change 1 thing a month. Try this: Start getting up an hour earlier every day for 30 days, so you can get used to getting up with enough time to do something extra in the mornings. After 30 days, if you find it's not working for you or you're too tired or whatever your excuse is, then fine, stop doing it. Next month, try something else new. Maybe you take up a new hobby, maybe you start listening to books on tape/CD/MP3 on the way to and from work, or maybe you cut out sweets for 30 days. Try something new and different for 30 days, next month try another thing new, then another, and another, and eventually you'll have a whole bunch of new stuff you can say you at least tried, and I'll bet you find a few things you want to keep doing, or that you want to share with your friends, family and others.
There are so many ways to make it great, if you're willing to try 1 new thing a month.

How To Be Happy
Happiness is a state of mind, so your state of mind at this moment makes all the difference.You need to ask yourself, is it what you want, the thing that is going to make you happy?If the answer is yes, does this mean that what you have must not be good enough?We go through life searching, searching for a better job, better house, better car, better relationship, sometimes for many people this is a full time "occupation, always searching!It seems to be a vicious circle for many of us, because the last job was the better one, now it is not, somehow it's lost its appeal, just as when you bought your car, it was going to make you happy but that was only for a short time, you soon became unhappy once you saw another newer model, so the car that was your dream car is no longer a dream.
