The Secret Of Happiness : Be You; Be Real; Be True.

Someone has rightly said that we are born to be real, not to be perfect. The secret of happiness is enclosed within this one line. Most of the people in the world try to become like others. They underestimate themselves. They forget that each and every human being is born with the same capacity. It depends on us how we use our capabilities and convert them into opportunities. Instead of improving ourselves, we compare our life with other people who are more successful than us, and try to become like them and call them our ideal. If we fail to become like our ideal, we feel unhappy, demotivated and lose faith in ourselves. We need not to become like someone else, we need to have faith in what we are, who we are, and what we can become by having that belief and faith in us. We should enhance our merit and work on our demerits. We are the best of ourselves when we are "we". I assure you that the feeling of becoming better by doing effort and struggle is happier and mesmerising and happier than the feeling of becoming like someone else. All we need to do is to work for betterment, realising our mistakes and correcting them, having faith in us and work for becoming a better "us", are the ways of achieving true happiness in life. This is my SECRET of happiness.
