Happy is the man and happy he alone, he who call today his own. He who secure within can say tomorrow do thy worst, for I have lived today. Every day is a new life to a wise man.
Yesterday is but a dream, and tomorrow is only a vision. But today well lived makes every yesterday a dream of happiness, and every tomorrow a vision of hope. Seize the day and enjoy the day
I’m not saying that you will never suffer or be stress again. You know life is full of extreme circumstances. No matter how smart we are or how rich we are, none of us is immune to health issues, the pain of losing people we love and the fear of other difficulties.
I can’t control what is going to happen to you or your family, I can’t control what will happen to your business. I wish I could. But know this, your decision to master your own mind will equip you to handle whatever challenges that come your way.
Never forget to live in appreciation, awe and gratitude no matter the challenges that may arise on your way. Radiate love and joy around you. Train your mind to find joy in every moment, it’s your choice whether to live in a suffering state or a beautiful state. You have the capacity to become a master of enjoyment, to fill your mind with appreciation, to be happy no matter what happens.
Everyone needs a vision. Mine is simple. I’m going to live in a beautiful state every day of my life and when I get off the track, I will snap myself back immediately. Living in a beautiful state is the greatest prize and the ultimate treasure. This is a rare and much greater achievement than being a millionaire or billionaire. If you can learn to ride the turbulence of life and enjoy both the ups and downs, then you really have hope.
In our hearts, we all know it’s not money that makes us rich. The greatest treasures are never financial. It’s those moments of grace and gratitude when we appreciate the perfection and beauty of nature. It’s those moments when we feel something eternal and invincible inside us, the core of our spirit. It’s the loving warmth of our relationship with family and friends. It’s finding meaningful work.
Also, it’s the capacity to learn and grow, to share and serve. It’s appreciating that everything you have gone through has served you that, even the deepest pain you have experienced has led to something beautiful. There can be no greater gift than for your life to have meaning beyond yourself.
Find something to serve, a cause you can be passionate about that’s greater than yourself, a cause you can die for, and this will make you wealthy. Nothing enriches the soul as much as helping others. What is the essence of life, if not for helping other?
Remember that you are more than the moment, you are more than the condition, you are more than your economics, you are more than any challenges that may arise on your way, you are more than any difficult time you may face, you are more than a conqueror, you are a soul, spirit and essence and you are truly unmovable.
Happiness can not be traveled to, owned or earned or worn. It’s the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, gratitude and grace. Success happens inside a man before it shines on the outside and never forgets that everything you need for your desired success has already been written.
Winning is great, sure, but if you are really going to do something in life, the secret is learning how to create your own happiness. Nobody goes undefeated all the time. If you can pick up after a crushing defeat and go on to win again, you are going to be a champion someday. Then you have a vision of hope
Strength does not come from winning, living in a beautiful state of life and fill your mind with appreciation, happiness and gratitude develop your strength. When you go through hardship and decide not to surrender that is true strength. A happy life consists of tranquility of mind and a thankful heart is not only the greatest virtue, but the parent of all other virtues, be grateful for life, appreciate nature and show gratitude to your creator.
If you can’t break forth how can you help people, if you can’t create your own happiness, how can you make people around you happy. Only those with a happy life, a grateful soul and an appreciative mind have a vision of hope.
