People that look inward all the time tend to be unhappy.
As Gordon B. Hinckley put it, “Generally speaking, the most miserable people I know are those who are obsessed with themselves.”
There are three things you can to do look outward which will lead us to happiness:
- Lose ourselves in service to others
- Decide to see the blessings in our circumstances
- Express gratitude
Here is the rest of the above quote, “The happiest people I know are those who lose themselves in the service of others…By and large , I have come to see that if we complain about life, it is because we are thinking of ourselves.”
A great example of recognizing blessings and expressing gratitude for them is Joseph Smith.
If you are unhappy or struggling, take the time to see the blessings God has given you and express gratitude for them. It will make a difference.
