How Average people manage to be happy while successful & unsuccessful remain miserable?
Do we really believe the above statement? Of course not.
Happiness is a state of mind and well being, it has nothing to do with status or whether you are successful or not, it is all to do with how we cope with what life throws at us. Some of us throw our hands in the air and cry over stupid things, to panic at the smallest disruption in their lives , while others get mad and angry , they blame everyone else other than themselves, and then there are those that face things head on.
OK, so lets throw our hands in the air.........we shall have a financial problem, an unexpected bill maybe, we knew the bill was coming ,it comes every year, but, we are unprepared so we cry and we phone the company , they don't help,thoughtless uncaring lot...........we get a loan to pay the bill and pay the bill until the new bill comes again the following year...we dont have the money, we still owe on last years..Result.unhappiness.
Lets blame everyone else but ourselves......Company director, very successful.wife ,2.4 children and a bank account anyone would envy, but, maintaining the lifestyle requires work morning noon and night, endless meetings and comes home tired and exhausted. The wife is standing in the hallway ,children either side and suitcases by the door, An arguement ensues and family leaves the director, "But it was all for her and the children, how ungrateful, cant she see how hard I have to work...Bla de bla de bla" He totally missed the point that his wife and children needed him around, that he should have paid more attention.Result -unhappiness.
Facing things head on..........These characters have everything in balance,they plan for the future,they have contingency plans for the unexpected, their homelives are loving and compromises are always undertaken that benefits the family unit as a whole. They are focused. Result - happiness.
In conclusion , happiness is not determined on whether a person is successful or not successful, happiness is having the right balance ,both in mind and in actions.
Balance = happiness
