You have to Work at being Miserable

I have heard that to be happy you have to work at it. Well, I am here to tell you that you have to work just as hard, if not harder, to be miserable. Some people make it look easy, but it takes effort and focus. Being miserable means that one always has to be on the lookout for what brings misery. The positive constantly has to be converted to the negative.

Being miserable is hard work just like being happy. Both are simply a choice of how we are going to live our lives. It is up to us what we do with what life gives us. We can either make lemonade out of the lemons or wallow in the pits.


If you are miserable and like it, fine. There are times when being miserable works. Just accept responsibility for your misery and get on with your life. Misery, like happiness, is a choice. You get to choose at any moment what you will be.

What do you choose to be?

Daily Success Formula

Misery = Choice


"Happiness, or misery, is in the mind. It is the mind that lives." William Cobbett

"Our principles are the springs of our actions. Our actions, the springs of our happiness or misery. Too much care, therefore, cannot be taken in forming our principles." Red Skelton
