A motivational thought

I pasted this message on the notice board of my office. I am very happy that some of my students here liked it so much. They even asked a copy for them and I was more than happy to give it to them. We are a human being.. Vulnerable in nature. We must constantly be reminded and motivated.. So enjoy reading it and get motivated!

12 WAYS TO BE HAPPY:


1. MAKE UP YOUR MIND TO BE HAPPY. LEARN TO FIND PLEASURES IN SIMPLE THINGS
2. MAKE THE BEST OF YOUR CIRCUMSTANCES. NO ONE HAS EVERYTHING AND EVERYONE HAS SOMETHING OF SORROW INTERMINGLED WITH GLADNESS OF LIFE. THE TRICK IS TO MAKE LAUGHTER OUTWEIGH THE TEARS
3. DON’T TAKE YOURSELF SERIOUSLY. DON’T THINK THAT SOMEHOW YOU SHOULD BE PROTECTED FROM MISFORTUNE THAT BEFALLS OTHER PEOPLE
4. YOU CANT PLEASE EVERYBODY. DON’T LET CRTICISIM WORRY YOU
5. DON’T LET YOUR NEIGHBOUR SET YOUR STANDARD. BE YOURSELF
6. DO THE THINGS YOU ENJOY DOING BUT STAY OUT OF DEBT
7. NEVER BORROW TROUBLE. IMAGINARY THINGS ARE HARDER TO BEAR THAN REAL ONES
8. SINCE HATE POISONS THE SOUL, DO NOT CHERISH JEALOUSY. AVOID PEOPLE WHO MAKE YOU UNHAPPY
9. HAVE MANY INTERESTS. IF YOU CAN’T TRAVEL, READ ABOUT NEW PLACES
10. DON’T HOLD POSTMORTEMS. DON’T SPEND YOUR TIME BROODING OVER SORROW MISTAKES
11. DO WHAT YOU CAN FOR THOSE LESS FORTUNATE THAN YOURSELF
12. KEEP BUSY AT SOMETHING. A BUSY PERSON NEVER HAS TIME TO BE UNHAPPY

…AND I COULD ADD NO 13…

TO KNOW LASTING HAPPINESS, GET TO KNOW ALLAH!
