Happiness is not the absence of problems. It’s the ability to deal with them. – Steve Maraboli
Happiness, if defined in its true terms, is actually a state of choice. It is up to ourselves whether we want to work hard and achieve our goals and eventually help us in feeling better or just leave ourselves to our fate and survive the storm.
People should never be afraid of their problems and only accept a peaceful life. Reality is much tough and complicated then what we actually understand it to be. It is important to know that we should never stagnate over-thinking pattern because of failure or disappointment.
Failures are the stepping stones of success. They not only make us wise but also deliver us with the basic tactics of survival. We must acknowledge our problems and always try to figure out how to deal with them effectively and in the least possible time.
We should also gather information from our past and our mistakes. This will give us a better understanding of the present and also help things turn out for us in our favor. It says that sadness is not the opposite of happiness but actually the absence of it. People should have the courage and faith in themselves.
Persistence is also a key to success and an essential element in achieving our dreams. We should remember that a river cuts through a rock not because of its power but because of its persistence.
We should also try to minimize our involvement in unimportant or useless activities as they will reduce our efficiency in our actual job. It says that falling into the water is not our choice but getting drowned without making any efforts to succeed in Survival is our choice.
We must remember that history has witnessed eminent personalities and people who with the minimum resources were able to sketch their names in history forever. They not only followed their passion but also turned their dreams into reality. They even smiled when they had to suffer from immense pain and criticism.
