Happiness is not a matter of events, it depends upon the tides of the mind. Alice Meynell
Happiness is a definite status and is capable of providing a novel vision to the present lifestyle of an individual. There have been several attempts to achieve the desired status through various means and processes. Here, I would like to describe 2 simple, but vital steps concerning the subject. If you are able to incorporate these steps in your day to day activities, you would surely enjoy the warmth of the happy state of mind.
Frame of mind plays a great role in motivating the entire process, which is based on the sayings “The mind is everything. What you think you become. – Buddha “. The world is a place where diverse things and incidents occur and individuals are to face them accordingly. It seems a sad place when you look to the negative side of everyday incidents. On the contrary, if you are positive minded, you find an opportunity to detect a ray of hope in every subject that comes to you as experience. It is the positivity of the outlook of the person that creates a different position from others and helps gain great success in the professional field. Even in situations of failure, you need to maintain the strong will of positivity so that you are able to overcome the negative situation effortlessly and move forward for a better future. You must appreciate the experience of the great basketball icon, who observes, “I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed. –Michael Jordan”
Simplicity in the lifestyle is a bold step towards attaining happiness of the mind. People in the modern society are subjected to various kinds of pressures and tension due to different reasons. Have you ever thought of finding reasons of such pressure and tension? They all make people suffer in different ways and life becomes really cumbersome. If you are leading a critical life style, you must also experience the agony of tension and stress. The more you embrace critical lifestyle, the more affected you are. Leading a life full of complexities would ultimately mean that you are under the clutch of severe stress and tension. The reality is that you can fight tension and stress for some time, but cannot go on tolerating the same aggression for an unlimited period. Hence, it is vital that you seek option to cut loose of the vicious cycle of stress syndrome, which dries up the juicy part of your life. You must have observed the experience of several celebrities becoming victims of the oppression of complex lifestyles.
You have only one chance of living a beautiful and colorful life and you owe the responsibility to your life in this respect. Get rid of living in an artificial world of complexities, shake off all the false barriers and accept the call of the inner-self. Lead a simple life. It comes with simpler stress pattern, which is easier to bear as well. It maintains the original flavor of a happy life, which you can definitely enjoy in full blossom. You feel much comfortable with life. When stress and tensions are absent, you feel free and content, which helps achieve success.
