What does happiness mean - A guide to being happy

Far too seldom do we stop in our everyday lives to ask ourselves whether we are leading a fulfilled and happy life. Often we are too busy, too stressed and too distracted.

Being happy means something different for everyone, so no general formula can be established. Instead, there are approaches and thoughts that can help you to get closer to your personal happiness and to be happy with what you do, with what you have, with what and how you are.


What pretty much everyone has in their heads is the idea of ​​an ideal image - the image of the ideal person in the ideal world.

These ideas of the ideal are shaped by your environment and do not only arise from your innermost desires and needs. Rather, your ideal image is formed by your environment, advertising and social media.

Man assumes that achieving his ideal image would make him the happiest person. Optimization is always sought in order to arrive happily at the destination.

Having your picture of yourself in an "optimized" version isn't generally a bad thing. First of all, it can enable you to develop further by getting inspiration and nudges from the outside. The ideal image creates a space for you to implement, a space in which you can place wishes and goals that you can then pursue.

So that this imaginary ideal image becomes a help instead of a burden, it is important to control this created image. It must not happen that you create unrealistic ideas and strive for them, are controlled by them.

Therefore you need to be aware of:

  • The ideal image is a creation created by you to become happy.
  • It is not to control and dominate you, but to
  • It serves to create space for a possible change. Like a puzzle that you can take pieces out of as well as put pieces in, you have the power to create your image.

Keep your ideal world in mind. Are there things and conditions that are good for you? Or does your ideal picture give you something that is not good for you, something that is not possible to achieve at the moment, something that makes you feel bad and stressed? Then you have the power to remove that factor from the picture. Just as you have the opportunity to place something that you know is good for you and that you can reach in the immediate vicinity.

Because the ideal image is a tool for self-development, not for self-torture. It should give you encouragement, motivation and determination.



Acceptance is an important step towards getting closer to your personal ideal. Because before the change, the basis of satisfaction must be laid. Therefore: estimate your current state.

Tailer Gage wrote in his book Fully Alive:

"In order to recognize the teachings of the light, we must be open to accepting the teachings of the dark and shadows.

Because if we don't accept that there are days when we feel worse, then we won't even be able to recognize the good days. There can never be light without shadow. These two sides of life represent the fullness of existence.”

What does that mean?
If you don't accept either side - happiness or unhappiness - you will not be able to perceive the other side at all.


Answer the question What does happiness mean to you? In which moments do you feel good, grateful, satisfied. Is it meeting loved ones, taking a walk in the daylight, reading a book or drinking a warm cup of tea. Collect these moments and consciously make time for some of these experiences each day.

Also, think about your ideal. Is it a realistic one? Does it spur you on? Do you want a change?
