A person who has no worldly pleasures or
desires lives a peaceful, happy, and satisfied life. Desires of worldly
materials prove to be the root for all sadness and unhappiness. The desires
and expectations for more lead to more unhappiness for a person and sadness.
Five Rules for a Happy Personality:
Four Types of People who are Happy in Practical Life
- Honesty -
Do not try to show off, but try to project who you really are. If
you want happiness for one day, go to the barber. If you want happiness
for one week, then get married; for one month, build a house. But
if you want happiness forever than be honest. Honesty lies in what
we think, speak, and put into action right away.
- Live in the Present -
- A second rule for happiness is to live in the present, because
to live in the past is to live with hate and repentance. To live
in the future is to live with desire and anxiety. But to live
in the present is to live in peace and happiness.
- In his lifetime, a person tries to accumulate as many things
as possible, and he wastes his time thinking about possessing
more and more. Yet he can never enjoy the things that he has in
his possession. Always try to remember, do not sacrifice your
happiness to accumulate things for tomorrow, for the person who
is not happy now will never be happy forever.
- Try to live in the present because it helps in avoiding unnecessary
anxiety. By not wasting energy and always being happy, the mind
will be able to develop a happy personality.
- Avoid everything in excess
- Always try to avoid everything and anything in excess in any
field of life. It can be in sleeping, eating, fasting, talking,
enjoying in worldly materials and pleasures, or even if it is
renouncing. Wherever there is excess, there is a chance of suffering.
There is happiness only when there is a balanced equal mind.
- In an interview, Lal. B. Shastri was asked what is poison? In
his reply, he said, "Everything in excess is a poison, and to
over think is also the root of sadness and sufferings.
- Whatever happens, it happens for the best
- Why does an incident happen? It happens for a reason, unknown
to us because we do not have the infinite knowledge. But we should
always remember, whatever happens, it happens for a good reason.
- By accepting this aphorism, one develops the patience, is free
from worries & tension. Due to this, the result is happiness,
which reflects on our personality and creates an internal balance
- Try to learn to forget (Let it go)
- There are so many incidents and circumstances in life that one
faces, it is in one's best interest to let them go or forget.
It is the best solution.
- We always forget the things that we must remember, but we will
always carry on past incidents and remember them for a lifetime.
As a result, our life becomes miserable, which in turn reflects
on our personality.
- Psychologists say that because of our ego, we do not forgive
other people's mistakes. One proverb says, "Forgiveness is the
best revenge." If one wants to take revenge, one should forgive
a person, as it proves to be the best revenge one can receive.
- Try to forget unnecessary things, and then only can one learn
to remember necessary things. One should not think about or keep
useless things in his head. Try to clear all of the useless knowledge
out of your head
- Avoids unnecessary spending
- Lives a simple life
- Stays away from a sinful life
- Stays away from hypocritical people
