Happiness Is Not Something Readymade. It Comes From Your Own Actions – Dalai Lama

Happiness is a relative concept. Each individual finds joy in different activities, experiences, and situations. Happiness can be found in all kinds of places. One thing is for certain – happiness must be something that the individual creates.

Many things that make us happy are a product of hard work. For example, if you want a career that you love, you have to go to interviews and be dedicated to the job. If you want to stay healthy and strong, you must exercise and do what you can to stay fit.

There are many obstacles that will try to get in the way of your happiness – fear, uncertainty, and everyday struggles are just a few of these obstacles. However, we can choose to find the strength within ourselves to overcome these difficulties, to rise above that which tries to weigh us down.

Our thoughts, and our actions, determine whether or not we’re happy. While there are many other factors, we can decide how we’re going to react to certain situations. Are we going to let others bring us down or are we going to stand up for ourselves and remind ourselves of our greatness? Are we going to give up on our goals or keep striving to accomplish them? It’s up to us!

  1. And I have found, you can’t really “work” toward happiness. You have to do your thing and allow it to flow to you . . .

  2. Happiness is yours now. If you strive for it, you’ll never get there. Your happiness will always depend on an external circumstance. Just Be Happy. It’s that simple.

  3. Very inspiring and motivational. Anand Bose from Kerala
