Live in the present
When you liberate yourself from the fear of making an achievement, you live in present. Your happiness does not rely upon a luxury car or a big house that you may own in future. Life has beautiful offerings for all of us; it is just that we look for our happiness in a wrong direction.
Worldly possessions and achievements never give you a true happiness. If it were so, all the great people of the world would have been the happiest of all. Sadly, it is not so, we do not value what we have and always envy others who envy us or someone else.
