Most people think that when you are successful in life, happiness easily comes into your life. People think that when you are successful, you have a good career, a good reputation in society, plus enough money to have a good life and all these factors contribute to making you happy. To some extent this is right. But is success a prerequisite to happiness? The answer to this question is NO, and in fact, we can say that happiness itself can be a prerequisite to success. A happy person is much more likely to be successful than a successful person is likely to be happy just because he is successful.
Happiness is a relative concept. Every person can have his own definition of happiness and what he needs to be happy. Usually, most people end up associating happiness with just the thing they don’t have in life. In the everyday hustle and bustle of modern life, it’s easy to overlook what you already have. Nobody on earth actually has everything. Some have more, some have less, but mainly it is the point of view that separates the happy from the unhappy.
Those who focus on what they lack remain unhappy. Thus unhappiness breeds stress in their minds, its blocks their creative thinking capability and makes them lose self confidence. Consequently, they become socially awkward as well. With limited thinking capability and limited social interactions, your chances of getting success also get limited. That’s why it’s important to focus on what you have, be grateful for it, love yourself, believe in yourself and just keep working with full dedication. One day things will surely fall in place.
