Let’s start this article with a simple question, “are you happy with your life?”. This is one of the most hardest questions in the society. True, most of us would say YES because we don’t want to look bad among others. We always tend to have this artificially created bubble where there’s only happiness, at least that’s how we want others to see it. But deep down we know the reality of ourselves. This is 21st century, a time where work and mind is hard to balance. Where everyone runs behind money and tend to forget the important factors in life. So let’s talk about it.
First of all focus on yourself, do you see another similar person like you in the society? Do you see another version of yourself in the society? No right? Because you are unique, there’s only one you in this world. And that’s a good thing, because that means that there’s a separate time and separate way for you to get succeed. Just because the person next to you is the CEO of a company in his 20s doesn’t mean that you are going to fail as a person. Doesn’t mean that you are not going to be successful. Doesn’t mean that it’s the end for you. It’s all about the timing. You are different than others, which means you are going to have a different life than others. You have different goals, different hobbies, different skills and everything is different. That’s where you should start your happiness from. First, love yourself. Come to peace with yourself. Compliment yourself because you deserve that.
Alright, so now you have a respect for yourself and that’s good. But now what? it’s not going to end there. Now here comes the hurdles in your life. The moments in your life where you should not give up even though how hard it is. Trust me life is not easy, it’s not going to come and say “Here I am, I’m not going to be hard for you. I’m going to give you everything you want”, no it does not happen like. Life is going to knock you at any chance it gets, what you have to do it make sure that you don’t. Toughen up yourself, you are not a person to give up. Even though you feel like you can’t do this, keep trying. Why do you have to give up when you can fight for what you love. Stand up for what you love because you are not born to give up. Whatever comes in your way, just make sure that you are prepared. When life hits you with lemons, collect them and sell them, that’s how you succeed.
So we have been talking about how be happy by focusing more on you, and by toughing up to face any hurdle you see in your path. But let’s keep your work life aside. Forget all the work related stuff, now focus on what’s left in your life. Importantly focus on the factors that will continue to make your life rather than work. For me it would be my Friends, Family and of course blogging (blogging is not what I do for work). These are the reasons I stay happy with my life. I know it’s the same for you, there’s at least this one person in your life that will bring a smile to your face. Focus on them, give them priority. Spend some time with them, because they play a main role in your life. Sure money can buy whatever you want but good relationships always start from good communication and the way you pay attention to others.
Let me ask you this question. What is your ultimate goal? You may say to travel the world, or maybe have the highest career path, all these goals brings you only one thing in the end, and that’s Happiness. That’s why you do all these sacrifices, all these work you do, all these ups and downs is only for one purpose and that’s Happiness. So always focus on improving your inner self. Because your happiness could even change another persons life. Stay happy, and keep achieving.
