“Everything you see or hear or experience in any way at all is specific to you. You create a universe by perceiving it, so everything in the universe you perceive is specific to you.” – Douglas Adams
Research has shown 40% of happiness is down to what you do – your behaviour and the actions you take. So, if the world is what you perceive it to be, what is reality? Can you create your own reality?
I love the quote by Douglas Adams as it sums up my view on reality. I believe that reality is what we each make it. Life has its ups and downs but it is our choice how we perceive it.
So, I feel it follows that we can make happiness a choice. Surely we can focus on happiness, rather than unhappiness.
For me, one of the keys to being happier is taking action.
If we can each create our own reality, why not choose a positive one?
