If you want to be happy with your life, do not let things control your life. Do not keep what you do not need. Do not attach yourself to what you do not need. Whatever you do not need, do not keep it. Whatever you do not need, do not buy it. Save your money for another day. Because buying what you do not need is not going to get you to where you want to be.
If you want to enjoy your life, do not attach yourself to your material possessions. Do not let them control your life. If you want to be happy, you must do whatever it takes to master your things. Do not let things master you. If they do, if you let them, you will feel the heat. You will suffer. If you let things take over your freedom, if you let your material possessions take over your life, you will never find peace. You will never be happy with yourself. It is good to have things, to buy things, but do not let them take over your life. If you need something, buy it. If something is still relevant, keep it. If something is still helping you, keep it. But if not, throw it away.
Happiness comes from buying, from keeping what you really need. Unhappiness, on the other hand, comes from buying, keeping what you do not need. If you do not need something, say, “I do not need it. I am not buying it.” You can say it.
If you want to be happy, take charge of your life. You cannot win if you are not in charge of your own life. No matter what, you must take responsibility for your life, for your actions. That is how you grow. That is how you get better. Do not focus on things that are holding you back. Focus on making your life better. And you cannot do that if you are not willing to take charge of your life. You must take charge. You must do what makes you happy. And you must make the decision to be happy today, not tomorrow. And if you can do that, you will always find happiness within you.
