“Abiding happiness will come to you when, ceasing to selfish cling, you are willing to give up.”- James Allen
Happiness comes from integrity. People with integrity are happy people. They control what they do; they control what they say; and they treat people with respect and dignity.
They work hard to maintain their integrity. They know that without integrity, they have nothing. If you lose your integrity, you have lost everything.
Happy people understand that “happiness is the key to success.” If you are not happy with yourself, it will be almost impossible to enjoy and love what you do.
In order to be happy, find meaning in what you do. Always focus on what is good, not what is bad in your life. When you focus on what is good, when you focus on what is positive, you will attract good and positive things into your life.
“How you perceive yourself is how the others will see you.”– Paul Arden
You will receive what you give out. If you don’t feel good about yourself, that is exactly how the world will see you. But why are you not feeling good about yourself? Are you thinking others are better than you, or are thinking you are not where you supposed to be?
No one is better than you. You are who you are. You are where you are supposed to be right now. The opportunity you are looking for is right where you are. But if you don’t feel good about yourself, you will struggle to get things done.
You are unique. Don’t worry about what others are thinking of you. It is your duty to take care of yourself. It is not selfish to do that. If you don’t value yourself, no one will value you. When you value yourself, according to John C. Parkin, “What tends to happen is that the more you value yourself, the more the rest of the world will tend to agree and value you as well.” When you value yourself, people will value you. It is your responsibility to value your life. Are you willing and ready to do that?
