If you have ever felt miserable, sad or angry at life for no apparent reason, or if your life just isn’t what you feel it should be, then this article may be just what you need to start living a happy and fulfilling life. You’re about to discover the blueprint to true success and happiness by embracing the law of love that was written into the hearts of men but ignored by many.
It’s strange, but most of us think that the key to happiness is focusing on “me,” our personal situations, working to acquire material gain for our own pleasure, bragging about our greatness and feeding that hungry little devil, the ego. Some people even go as far as to judge everyone around them while boasting of their religious truths, but this path to happiness could not be further from the truth.
I have always told my clients, “To be successful, do the opposite of the crowd.” Albert Einstein once said “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” Yet that is exactly what so many people do… the same thing over and over thinking they will get a different result. Obviously, if things are not going so well, it’s time to try something different.
For lasting change, start with the simple things. Learn to appreciate the gift of life… because life really is a gift. How would you feel if you gave a most precious gift to your child, and your child went off into the woods and buried the gift in the ground, said some negative words about it, and then spit upon it? Some people actually feel this way about their life, always complaining and showing lack of appreciation to creation. Well, I’m not here to preach about some religion or God, but I do know that life is a gift, and I know from personal experience that the attitude of gratitude is life changing.
Now, here’s a real challenge; stop thinking so much about yourself, and start focusing on the well being of others. Self pity, self centeredness… all forms of selfishness… are the paths to a life of misery. Remember, if you’re feeling bad and want different results, then you must change your plan of action. If you keep doing what you’re doing now, nothing will change. In the pursuit of true success and happiness, you will have to change your thoughts, your beliefs about life, your attitude… or you will never find what you are looking for.
If you want a happy, fulfilling life, then you must learn to love your fellow human beings. When you focus on making other people happy, you become happier. Give, and it comes back to you… an infinite circle. It is better to give than receive.
Misery or happiness? Self centeredness or giving? What’s it going to be for you? Without love, people cannot know God. Without love, the door that leads to our spiritual happiness closes, and darkness envelopes us.
The key to happiness is NOT serving yourself, seeking material gain or following some religion. No. You can only experience an abundance of happiness and love if you truly appreciate the gift of life and serve your fellow human beings. Remember, when you focus on making other people happy, you become happier. There is no way around this law of love. You can try all other approaches, but your soul will be left dry and thirsty for the only thing that matters… love.
Today is a new day. Choose your future wisely. Love life, and it will love you back. Give, and you will receive. This is the path to true success, happiness and God.
