How to Bloom Where You're Planted

Are you the type of person that lets the negative circumstances and challenges you face determine your level of happiness? Do you believe that you'll be happy when you land the next big promotion, save enough money, or find the soul mate you been looking for?

While positive goals drive you forward, it's important to learn to bloom where you're planted.

Instead of letting your circumstances dictate how you feel, let the joy you have on the inside shine forth. No matter where you are, find the good in it. Remember all that you have to be grateful for, instead of focusing on the feeling that there's always something missing.

To bloom where you're planted, look for the good in every challenge you face. Some of the wealthiest people feel empty because they don't have the unconditional love of others, their health, or other things that money simply can't buy. And, some of the poorest people in the world are the happiest. Why? Because they choose to find the good and focus on it.

When thinking about blooming right where you are, ask yourself the following questions:

• What do you have that you can be thankful for?

• Do you have a place to live and enough to eat?

• Are you employed? Can you pay your bills?

• Do you have your health?

• Are there people who love you, and whom you love in return?

• Do you practice your faith to help you with positive energy?
