Real Happiness:

Most of us want a decent job to earn enough money to live a happy life. However, within a short span of time, they realize that they are not happy even though they are earning ample salary. Money is important but money is not the only thing required to be happy! If you make your hobby your means to earn livelihood, not only you will be more successful but also you will be happier. By choosing your priorities early, you can make your life better. After all, life is the product of our choices and situations.

Believe me; in present world, it is not so difficult to make your passion your profession. You just need planning and lot of patience. It might take some time before you start earning handsome amount of money. Nevertheless, once you start earning money, with time, it will continue to increase. Best part is that you are living your passion. You will be happy even though you are earning less initially. The only thing stopping you to live your passion is your thinking. Ask yourself this question. How can I make money with my hobbies? Focus on the skills you have and find the way to convert your hobby into your profession. Start making YouTube videos to help other and monetize your channel. If you are passionate about writing, start your own blog and use wordads or adsense to generate money.

Sometimes peoples confuse temporary laughter as happiness. Especially while giving example that money is not required for happiness, we point towards a poor person laughing on a joke or being happy playing with his children. Definitely, money is not prerequisite for happiness. However, money makes life easier. You gain better control on your life with money. Without money, you can be happy in bits and pieces. You do not need money to enjoy company of your loved once. However, without money they might not give you time or respect you deserve. Which will make you sad.

For permanent happiness, sufficient money to run your life smoothly is indeed required. However, besides money various other things are crucial too. Most important is your health. Not just of your body but also of your mind as well. Give time to your mind and body. As exercise and balance diet keep your body fit, meditation, mindfulness techniques and good sleep keeps your mind fit. Second important factor is relationships. Make sure you are marring to right person by talking to her. Focus on his/ her nature more than his/ her appearance. If you find a wife with good nature and pleasant personality, your life will be like heavens! Divorcing and getting married again will not fix things. Your first wife will take away some of you with her, and leave some of her imprint on you for long time if not forever! If you have kids, divorce will be a hell, not just for you but for your kids as well. You cannot learn everything by hit and trial. Hence, the right way is to check out everything before deciding for marriage.

Third thing is Job. Look for less tension, more pay jobs or business. Follow your passion. You can live happily even in less money by following your passion and converting it into your profession.

Fourth point is perspective. This is actually a difficult point. Please focus and try to understand it. Not all those peoples, who believe purpose of life is happiness, should follow their own perspective if it does not match with others in their society. Because you will not be happy if you have different perspective. Your life, your family, everything will disturb. However, if you believe that purpose of life is to live with reason and self-control in every situation you must strive for true perspective. On an average 85 % peoples in this world live their life with wrong perspective towards life. Still, they live a happy life because they never care about truth. Moreover, their happiness is fake like happiness of drug addict, when he takes drug, he feel like he is flying in air. He forgot every problem in his life. As effect of drug vanishes, he start feeling pain and weakness. Hence, Purpose of life should not be happiness; else, in pursuit of happiness you might become a “Hippie”.  True happiness is not in running behind happiness but in making life meaningful and purposeful. Happiness is not a goal but a condition, which we can achieve by setting right goal for our life. Those who confuse happiness as goal or purpose of life cannot live a meaningful, fulfilling and rewarding life. Take pain in making your life meaningful, set goal and exceed them. In due course, you will attain happiness.

How to make life happy by having right attitude towards life.

 

Life is all that we have. Once we are dead, we immediately changed from human being to a dead-body ready to be buried or burned. Before being alive, we were star-dust. Then become sperm and ovum. When sperm combined with ovum, called fertilization, we come into existence. Before life and after life we were nothing but dead matter.

It is so exciting that we are alive and we have power of thinking, contemplating, reasoning and being happy.  Yes, we all have power of being happy inside us. However, we keep searching happiness outside and most often become sad when we fail to found it. Outside happiness depends on others. Do not waste time in finding happiness outside. Internal happiness depends on you. You are in charge of your own happiness. By changing your life style, behavior and thinking you can keep yourself happy. Always cherish good memories. Think about the happiest moment of your life when you feel sad. Keep record of you joyful memories. Write them down and read them when you feel life sucks.

Instead of asking question “why this happened to me”, ask question “how I can change that situation or how can I come out of this situation”. Asking right questions yield right answers. Asking wrong question increase your sorrow and anxiety. Most often, we keep asking wrong questions. When we do not get right answers, we keep cursing our life. Wrong questions can ruin your life. Always avoid them. Your mind is more powerful than you think. It can always generate great ideas if you ask right questions.

Share your happiness with everyone. As happiness increases with sharing. Share your sorrow with a few very close people. No one like people who keep talking about sad things. Be joyful to win more friends. Good friends are assets. Help others. It will give you happiness and satisfaction. Focus on creative enjoyment and avoid destructive enjoyment. Destructive enjoyments are those, which gives you, fake instant happiness but in long-term destroy your body and relationships. You were no longer able to enjoy life. Some examples are substance abuse, smoking, excessive drinking and adultery. Creative enjoyment are sports (except extreme sports), social parties, exercising, talking to loved once, love-making with your spouse, helping other, painting, dancing, listening music, watching comedy and motivational video, gardening, perusing your hobbies etc. Creative enjoyment enhance your health and with healthy body, you can enjoy life for longer time.

Death is inevitable. Yet, we have strange attitude towards death. We do not want to talk about it as if talking will cause us to die. However, death does not work this way. Fearing or trying to running away by not talking about it will not help. Be prepared for your death. Talk about it with your spouse and adult children. Tell them you love them. Tell them, what you expect them to do once you are gone. Write your will. Save some money for your family. In case, you die in an accident your family should be financially secure. If you are living abroad with your family, always keep some money in your bank account and teach your wife how to withdraw money from ATM. Give her ATM pin and phone nos. of most reliable persons who can help her in returning to her Nation.

Spread love, laughter and happiness. Be a source of happiness rather than seeker of happiness. Learn to laugh on yourself and no on will be able to make you feel embarrass.

What is Sustainable Society

When things are progressing well in our life, we do not realise any need of support and help from any one. Unfortunately, such pleasant phases do not last longer for most of us. When some unfortunate, unpleasant and unplanned thing occurs in our life, we look all around for helping hand and shoulder to lean on. But we hardly find any real help at that time, because in our good time we never care about others. Thus in our bad time, no one care about us. As a social animal, we all are dependent, (on each other), thus we must help and care for others at all time. So that when bad time comes we find many helping hands and support in the form of friends and family. To create such a community, we need what is defined below as Sustainable society. Our future and future of coming generation depends on how sensibly we use our natural resources, ecosystem and our environment. Our development should not be at cost of our future. Hence we need sustainability in all walks of our life. This total sustainability can only be guaranteed by a Sustainable society.

SUSTAINABLE SOCIETY (SS) (def. “Society that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs”) refers to a community in which everyone is either self-sufficient or taken care by those who are already self-sufficient and can generate enough resources to function without any interruption. In such society everyone is well informed about his/her duties towards nature and society. It focuses on overall development of human society based on sharing and caring. Society will support everyone till they become self-sufficient. SS creates a delicate balance between development and conserving our Environment for long term sustainability of human civilisation.

Society will be responsible for providing for children, women without income, disable and old aged retired peoples who are not in condition to do any work. Not just money but kind words, care, safety, shelter, work and means for happy living are provided. Work will be distributed according to the ability and interest. There are no owners in Sustainable society. Everyone is a worker earning according to his/her capacity and contributing back to society. Everything will be done in a planned way keeping future in mind.

A family, not the individual is the smallest unit of society. So SS promote the idea of family-nuclear or extended depending on personal choice. A management comprising of educated intellectuals will run the society.
