Life is a choice. You either choose to be happy or unhappy. The choice is yours. You are the deciding factor, and not others . Why I say so? This is because to live happily, you need to look at life from the right perspective. The secret of happiness does not lies ahead, but lies inside you.
Some may think that money will bring us happiness. Unfortunately, this is not the case and it is a common misconception. It depends very much on its beholders. Why I say so? No doubt, money can buy lots of things. However, it cannot buy things such as peace, sleep, health and happiness. Sometimes, it brings more harm especially when you see siblings fighting for inheritance in the presence of their elderly parents who are in serious illness.
Accept people as they are and it will make you happy because we cannot deny the truth that everyone is unique and is distinct from others. You can't find two persons that are identical, even if they are twins.
Do not try be smart by exerting unnecessary force to lead others to behave the way you want. You may think it will make you happy. That is an illusion. Simply because those who behave in that manner may be trying to obtain your favours when you are of use to them. Once, he has such power, he will then treat you the same manner as you have trained him. Can you see that this way will not lead to happiness in the long run? Instead it will lead you to a rat race situation which is stressful and creates more harm to you, if left unchecked.
Accepting differences in individual not only enhance our understanding and tolerance level of human relationship, but also assist us to master the skill. Hence, it not only makes us wiser, but also turn us to be a more easily approachable person. You will find the key of being happy is to mix well with people, rather than indulge with unhealthy activities by comparing and competing.
In short, money does help, so does power that come from social status, however they are not permanent in nature. This is because there is always someone else wealthier than you or have higher authority than you and whose wants may be different form yours. The truth will then prevail, which will not make you happy.
However, this is not the case when you have good and sincere relationship with people around you that makes you happy. This sort of relationship is more permanent in nature. Life is a relationship with others. It is through caring and sharing that true happiness is created. Sometimes you act as a giver of happiness to those who are in despair. And at other times you act as a receiver of happiness from others who sow upon you.
Relationship will help mould and sharpen your understanding in life. This social network will not only give you a more healthier environment to flourish your life, but also bring happiness to you. Health is also wealth.
I hope that this article paints you a right perspective for happy living Let this smart way lead your life and you will live in a truly wealthy manner.
