Jim Rohn truly said that happiness is not by chance but by choice.In today’s world people have been so blinded in the rat race to climb the ladder of achievements and success that they have forgotten why they even began this race. The one goal we want to ever achieve is happiness yet it is the one thing many people can’t find in their lives.This is the reason why there are so many youngsters that have been gripped with stress and depression.Many people have set benchmarks of achievements whose fulfillment they believe would bring happiness in their lives. However this is not the case. If material things had been the cause of happiness in this world all the rich people would have been the happiest people on earth. However the case is exactly the opposite .According to a survey the upper section of the society is more prone to depression than the less privileged section of the society.
So, what does this tell us about happiness? The state of happiness is neither dependent on any external sense of achievement nor on our financial status. Happiness is just a state of mind. A state that is dependent on us and only us. No one is responsible for happiness other than we ourselves.If today we choose and make a promise to ourselves that no matter how hard life gets, no matter how tough the challenges get, I would be happy. Then, nothing can stop us from being happy.
The one goal in our life is to be happy and it is our choice to have it. There is no struggle for happiness, just a simple choice we make to ourselves. We all deserve happiness and it is only dependent on us.Nothing will make us happy until we choose. Happiness is not something we can just postpone for the future. It is something we design for the present.
It is time for all of us to step up. The one true goal we need to set in our mind is to choose to be happy no matter what happens. Once we do this life gets easier, the problems become just small and henceforth, all the obstacles can be easily overcomed.
