Welcome your Sorrows and Face your Problems
The truth is, when you are in a problematic stage of your life, the experiences that you get then will never leave your mind. It is also true that the most successful people have had terrible pasts that have molded them into what they are today.
That remains the secret of every successful person you will meet – try and turn even the defeats into future victories in your life.
They say that every cloud has a silver lining, and it is so true when you consider there could be a great tomorrow thanks to an ugly yesterday. Authentic happiness is something we all can work towards if we realize that the ultimate outcomes of our life lie in our own hands.
We need to simply realize that we are in control of our own destiny. We need to realize these things, and face out every problem in a healthy spirit, knowing there is happiness right behind the ugly clouds that the problem poses as.
Just as water never ceases to flow whatever you keep in its path, so must we also never cease to follow our dreams in spite of obstacles in our paths. The joy of success is after all even greater when we face hurdles and overcome them along the way.
It is true that sometimes our problems seem so big that they are all we can see, and at times like this it is all we can do to move on in life, hoping to see a ray of light soon, and that is something that does come eventually. After going through darkness, we know how to appreciate that light even more.
You achieve authentic happiness only when you stand after you have fallen a few times. Just as an infant falls a few times before he can walk, so do we all, face hurdles when we make mistakes in life. All we need to do is learn from these mistakes so we do not fall into the same pit over and over in life.
Emerson said that authentic happiness is a feeling that goes beyond the normal states of human pleasure. It is a state of mind that engulfs the whole human spirit, so you remain hopeful in spite of seemingly dire consequences not too far away.
So, get to authentic happiness, which should be your ultimate goal in life.
Welcome your sorrows and face your problems, after all they help you make a better tomorrow.
