There have been lots of folks blogging about what it takes to be happy and we all know, sometimes it just ain't easy.

Here are some of the Top Things To Do To Be Happy:

  1. Give up the need to always be right about stuff.  It's okay to admit you're wrong sometimes, because everyone is.
  2. Stop trying to control everything.  Sometimes you just can't control things.
  3. Don't blame other people all the time.  Try to admit when something's your fault.
  4. Try not to dwell on self-defeating thoughts.  Don't sit around thinking about how you might fail, or coming up with reasons not to do things.
  5. Stop deciding things are impossible.
  6. Try not to complain too much.  A little bit's okay, but positive thinking is more productive.
  7. Don't be overly critical.  Which goes hand in hand with not complaining so much.
  8. Stop trying to impress everyone.  You won't be happy if you're constantly worried about what other people think.
  9. Stop trying to live up to other people's expectations.
