Happiness Vs Wealth

If you have to pick between happiness and wealth, which would you choose? I personally would have chosen both but happiness defeat all other aspects of life. “Money is not important?” NO! Wealth is equally important but happiness plays the biggest role when it comes to success. I witnessed many wealthy individuals who can afford to buy everything as they achieve financial independence. Sadly when it comes to the state of happiness, they failed miserably. Why? Some die young yet rich as they focus their entirely time building their wealth profile. Are you planning to follow their footsteps?

Happiness is Health

By being happy, you can rest assure that you will lengthen your life span and sickness will never exists in your list ever again. It is proven by psychologists and scientists worldwide that we can fight any form of diseases when our emotion is always kept on the status of happiness and positive at all times. Yoga has become one of the most popular exercises to help individuals to stay positive and happy. Ever wonder how the monks are able to live a longer life span compare to those who are wealthy? Monks are humans as well which means they can be sad too, however how are they able to endure the pain? “Happiness is not a choice but a feeling and feeling is not controllable but thinking is.”

Control Your Thoughts

Imagine yourself carrying a toddler on your shoulders, do you feel comfortable when it’s crying or being joyful? Frankly speaking I hate whenever a child cries (Please don’t hate me. It’s my personal view and opinions that I’m unable to handle the noise), I will do whatever it takes to make it happy once again. As I shared earlier, the toddler can only be happy through the emotion (making it laugh or giving a warm love hug) or fulfillment (either cleaning the diapers or feeding the stomach). Same thing for us grown ups too! We can’t be forced but we can turn things around to be happy. Whenever you’re feeling down, find alternative ways to bring yourself back up. The deeper you enter, the darker you will see.

How to find Happiness

How to maintain Happiness

We are humans with emotions for heaven’s sake; there are always up and down moments and the challenging obstacle is how can we consistently endure the challenge. First and foremost, start letting go of the negativity/past and start living in the present. Whatever happens in the past was history, what happen next decides your future. Second, start surrounding yourself with a troop of happy yet supporting individuals who will be there for you. Being alone doesn’t bring you far yet easily targeted by darkness. But what if you’re alone and you can’t help it? Start listening back to all your songs that excites and gives the crazy upbeat that allows your feet to move and dance like there’s no tomorrow. Finally, start loving yourself. Do I need to justify it? If you can’t even love yourself, how can you expect others to love you?
