1. They remember to take ownership of their lives.
Happy people have no problem taking ownership of their lives. This includes mistakes, successes, failures, and everything in between.
When you’re happy, you don’t need to pass off blame when you mess up, nor do you really need to make a big fuss if you’ve been successful or have done something right.
This sense of ownership indicates a desire to please themselves with their successes and become a better person with their failures.
Truly, to a happy person, these things are about them, not the people around them.
