You want to be happy in 2017?

If wishes were horses everybody will ride! Happy New Year is what everybody is saying right now. To be happy during 2017 you have to make that happen. Here are six suggestions that will help you achieve that.

  • Let go of the past: You are not the only one who made mistakes in 2016. All you need is to ask others and you will be surprised by how many who made the same mistakes you made. Therefore forgive yourself, let go of last year's failures, and move forward. There is much waiting for you in 2017. Why let 2016 rob you?

  • Forgive others: You have to forgive those who wronged you in 2016 for your 2017 to be successful. If you do not forgive, you will be putting yourself in your own prison. Get out of that prison and make the most of this new year. Do not forget that your happiness depends on you.

  • Keep your goals simple: It is not the number of goals that matter. Do not try to get too much done and finally get nothing done. Goals no matter how good they are will not do you any good if they are not achieved. Therefore set achievable goals and do not overdo it. It is better to have one goal that is actually executed, than a thousand that are used for window dressing.

  • Be optimistic: Your attitude will make or break you. Like any other year, 2017 will come with challenges, but you will be successful when you keep a positive outlook.

  • Be yourself: This is a reminder to you that you are unique and there is no other person like you. 2017 is another opportunity for you to find your place and occupy it. Add your own thoughts to the list and begin to make life better for others.

  • Laugh: Laughter is the best medicine and it is free. Start by laughing at yourself and you will not be offended when others do. Believe it or not, there are areas of your life that will cause laughter, so start the laughing party.
