Is it necessary to keep your own happiness at stake for the sake of others?

Those people who are happy in themselves can never keep other happy. The way you look at your life and external world determines your own happiness. You must not let your own happiness take a back seat if you wish to see your loved ones happy. It is important that you make a perfect balance between your happiness and happiness of others around you since:

Your own happiness and satisfaction create happy environment

You cannot imagine those who are surrounded by worries and troubles of all kinds taking good care of their loves ones. Would you be able to put on a happy face or share good memories when you are lost in your own world of misery? Research says that those who give the first preference to their own happiness maintain healthy relationships.

Share your happiness with others

The only way to multiply your happiness is by sharing it with all others around you. Each day brings along beautiful surprises that can change your life forever. Instead of wishing for a trouble free life, be thankful for all the blessings, as life is too short to stuff it with regrets. Learn to appreciate others for their achievements and share your success with others. When you take interest in other people’s lives and help them achieve success, they love to return the favor.

You cannot make everyone happy

You must try to keep yourself on good terms with all others but at the same time you cannot deny the fact that it is quite impossible to keep everyone happy. Those who follow someone else’s idea of happiness can never be truly happy. Follow your own heart when you make important decisions of your life, as your happiness is your own responsibility. You must not feel guilty if you chose your own happiness over others as you are above everyone else.

Never give up on your dreams

You cannot be happy until you show your best to all and unblock your full mental potential. It may be hard to realize your dreams but that would only make the results even sweeter. Do not hesitate to sacrifice your comfort and do not let your dreams go out of you sight. Even if you fail you would still be satisfied that at least you tried. The truth is that those who put in their best efforts and remain consistent in their efforts are bound to succeed.

Enjoy the process

Those who work hard achieve success in life but the only condition is that they must choose the path of success. Get clarity of thoughts and make sure you are moving in right direction. Work hard but do not let that keep you from enjoying the journey of life. You do not have to try harder if you make it a part of your life. The efforts you put in would eventually get you close to your goals. Isn’t that something to celebrate?

Value yourself even more

Value yourself

Your education, job, financial status and even your relationship do not describe you as you are above all. You are the most important person in your life. Love, admire and value yourself as you have no match. Have full faith in your abilities and push your luck a little harder every time you fail. Do not let your failures keep you from touching new milestones in life. Do not look at other people’s achievements to know what is possible as you are capable to achieve even more. Set your own standards of success and live life your way.

It is not difficult to maintain a balance between your happiness and happiness of others around you. No matter how hard you try, if you are not happy you would always find it hard to make others happy.
