Happiness lies in looking downOne of the reasons why mankind struggles to remain happy is due to the fact that they always look up and notice the people who have more than them or are above them. Seldom they look down on people who have even less than them or are below them. So the medicine for happiness lies in looking down and not up. What about our ambition then if we look down? Shouldn't we dream high? Yes, no harm in aiming high but if your aim gets missed then make sure to look down, be content and happy. You have given your try and result is not in your hands.
If you have a bike and cannot possess the car, look at the person who has a bicycle and be satisfied.
If you have your own apartment and cannot possess a villa, look at the people who live in huts and be satisfied.
If you are earning a low salary and it does not increase, look at the people who are unemployed and be satisfied.
If you have a small car and cannot possess an SUV, look at the people who have only a two-wheeler and be satisfied.
If you are living in a hut and cannot own a house, look at the people who do not even have shelter and be satisfied.
The real key to happiness lies in being satisfied and considering ourselves fortunate for whatever God has given us and not cribbing about more and do a comparison with others. God has sent each person to the earth with his/her share of luck and destiny so we are not going to get anything more than that. So it is better to look down and be happy.
