What happy people do differently than grumpy people

Want to know what consistently happy people do differently than consistently grumpy people?

(Note: I’m not talking about people with medically diagnosed depression issues.)

I believe the number one big difference between grumpy people and happy people is…

Grumpy people are what I call “negative evidence collectors.”

Grumpy people are dutifully looking for “awful” things, people, events, to put in a mental folder labeled “proof life is awful.”

In contrast…

Happy people are “positive evidence collectors.”

Happy people are constantly looking for awesome things, people, events, to put into a mental folder labeled “proof life is awesome.”

Because happy people collect awesome not awful stuff, they notice and attract more awesome stuff.

As a result happy people wind up filling up their mental folders with lots of happy evidence that life is indeed awesome – and they thereby feel a lot happier.

In summary:

Don’t be a negative evidence collector about life! Be a positive evidence collector!
