We all dream of a happy and fulfilled life; to have a great relationship, to work in a job that we love, to basically enjoy every single day we are here.


Sadly, however, sometimes we let the mundane take over and we get stuck in a life that we're only OK with. 


However, as one Reddit user points out, a great life doesn't just happen to anyone.



"If you want a great life, you must commit to it," user DarkLordoftheS**t recently wrote on the site.


"Doing things, the majority do not do. Commit to thinking like the minority, not the majority."


And in a quest to help as many people as possible to live a happy, successful life, they shared the seven principles that we should all live by.


"1. One day you will be gone

Maybe in 50 years, maybe in fifty weeks, maybe next week, or even today. Nobody knows. And rather than live in fear of this, we should embrace the fact that this life is short and unpredictable. Knowing this, we must live fully today. 



"2. There is nothing you cannot be, do or have

As long as it is possible, you can work towards it. You can make a plan. Learn what needs to be done your craziest, most abundant life.


"3. Nothing is worth it, if it doesn't make you happy

If it doesn't a) make you happy, or b) make you better, don't make time for it. It means if it doesn't make you happy now while you are doing it, or if it isn't going to make you happy as a result of doing it, it most likely is not worth it. 


"4. Be yourself

Always. No exceptions. The only way you can live happy in this life, the only way you can be successful, is if you be you. You will never be truly happy in life if you are constantly doing things to please others, to compete with others, or to be like another.



"5. Everything you need is already within you

In this world, we see endless examples of people who seemingly have it all. But they are empty. Things will never complete you. Other people will never complete you. 


"6. There is no room for toxic people

Surrounding yourself with negative people is the worst things you can do if you want to live a great and happy life. 


"7. Whatever you focus on, you will find

If you search for negativity in this world, you will find plenty of it. The same is true on the flip side. If your only intention is to search for the good, you will find only the good. Whatever meaning you give your life, becomes your life."
