Are you a happy person or are you still on the search for what makes you happy? It is certainly something difficult which many people have problems with, and in fact there are many who never find the happiness that they are looking for. Today I want to share with you some things that I learned from my good friend George Ammar, who is probably one of the happiest people that I know. George tells me that he didn’t know what would make him happy until he found it and now he is a man who is extremely content. George S Ammar is a CPA certified accountant who is the founder and CEO of his own company Ohio CFO LLC right here in Cleveland, his phone directory is full of respected men and women and he has a beautiful family at home, not to mention the fact that he leads a very healthy and active lifestyle. For George, these are the things that make him happy, and here is his advice on how you can find what makes you happy.

Trying Everything

We often tell kids who say that they don’t like certain food to try it before they decide whether or not they like it, but we don’t take our own advice. Ultimately you will never know how something makes you feel until you have actually given it a try, and that is what we should be doing in our lives. Try out a new sporting event, try out a new job, meet new people from different backgrounds. Until you have tried, you won’t know what really makes you happy.

 Breaking Down Envy

Envy and jealousy are of course not good traits to have but if you ever are envious of someone it is important to work out why. Let’s take a sports superstar like Lebron James for example, if you are envious of him ask yourself why, is it because he is rich? Handsome? Influential? Respected? Or simply because he gets paid to play ball each week. If you can get to the root of your envy you’ll find out what is lacking in your own life.

 Being Honest With Yourself

Sometimes we actually are very happy in our lives but we are chasing some Hollywood-made happiness that probably doesn’t exist. The saying that you don’t know what you’ve got until its gone is very apparent here, so think about losing everything that you have, would you be sad? Or would you be happy for the clean start? We usually have everything that we ever wanted right here in our hands, we just didn’t know it.

These are just a few tips on how you can understand what it is that truly makes you happy and how to go and get it. Happiness remember is a state of mind, and it can rarely be found in a possession.
