How to ensure happiness finds you
Do we ever think along these lines?
I’ll be happy if…
– I get to go on the school trip
– I stand first in the final exams
– I’m selected to the basketball team
– I get admission in the best college
– My parents buy me the latest cell phone
If you did not get any of what you wished for, you would be sad. However, even if you got all of the above, there would be no guarantee on a lifetime of happiness
Most people depend on others to gain happiness, and blame others for their sadness, but factually; it always comes from within.
Some kids who change schools seem lost and sad while others appear happier because they embrace the change and make new friends.
Some of us get discouraged when we fare badly in an exam and yet many of us study with new-found vigour and excitedly ace the exam in the next semester.
If we look at all of the times we’ve been happy, we’ll know that we were not happy because of things or people. But because of the way we perceived them. And thought about them.
That’s the secret, happiness is an inside job!
