Find Happiness With Everything You Own

April 17, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 149

Anyone can Find Happiness with the Things they Already Have

We know that it is impossible for a person to find happiness with materialistic pursuits or endeavors. The question is, why do people always think that they need more money, nicer cars, nicer homes, better jobs if they wont be able to find happiness through them? A person needs to be able to find happiness through the things he already has. Also, a person has to understand that chasing after materialistic gains will not help you in the long run.

When a person has everything he needs and doesn't feel that he is lacking something he will automatically be able to be happy with what he has. All the time you hear of stories of people that win the lottery and 10 years later are back to being broke. It isn't a made up fantasy that a huge chunk of the wealthiest people in the world aren't happy. How could it be that the people who have everything feel that they have nothing. I was sitting with a client about two months ago and he said to me that he feels as if he failed his company because he wasn't able to close on a particular deal that he had been working on for a while. I asked recently how he feels now with the way he has been working and he said "Much better, thank god my other deal didn't go through, that company is failing miserably and it would've costed us a lot of money". Right away you can see that not everything that seems to be good for you is actually good for you.

People try to find happiness by buying nicer cars or nicer cloths, but slowly they lose their interest in them and they only leads to them getting annoyed. My client was so much happier that the deal didn't go through but in the beginning all he was thinking about was how happy he is going to be after he closes the deal. An important lesson to finding happiness is if your original plan doesn't work out then enjoy the plan that does. Sometimes we plan too far ahead and get ahead of ourselves. We fail to see how much better the other route may be. Your original plan may not have been as enjoyable or good for you as you may have though. It probably could have caused problems you did not anticipate. What you actually do in the end will probably be better for you if your original plan doesn't work out. Learn to Find Happiness in the things you have.
