In today’s world, we have a lot of information, literally that much that we hardly able to digest it, but still we can’t able to improve our life. Why?
Because in the past few centuries a few of the best people walked on this earth they had shared some of the best advice to improve our life, sadly most of that, we forget today. In fact, we never re-visit it now.
So today I have come with Lucius Annaeus Seneca’s 10 ways to find happiness in life.
One of the most beautiful qualities of true friendship is to understand and to be understood. – Lucius Annaeus Seneca
How do you consider someone as your friend? Is not it when he/she listen to you. In the world where we are filled with social sites and parties still, there is a gap where you will hardly find someone who will truly listen to you. In fact, friendship or a good relationship is based on putting yourself in other’s shoes irrespective of criticizing them for their deeds, understanding and cooperating with each other is the main formula behind a good human being.
Wherever there is a human being, there is an opportunity for a kindness. – Lucius Annaeus Seneca
Aside from other common things in life I find that two values differentiate people’s life completely from a remarkable person with an ignorant one. One of these qualities is the quality of kindness, believing in human values and trusting others over too much consciousness. In fact, kindness can change things completely. Every act of kindness is the presence of spirituality in your life. A sign of a awaken soul in a crowded world.
It is not because things are difficult that we do not dare, it is because we do not dare that they are difficult. – Lucius Annaeus Seneca
Who loves to face difficulties in life, no one in the world? In fact, every one of us wishes to live our life without any problems, but unfortunately, without difficulties, there is no space for growth. If you plug the same seed, again and again, you will get the fruit same as before, unless you change the core seeds, it might give you some problems at first, but at the end, your result would be different. Isn’t it what matters over difficulties?
We often want one thing and pray for another, not telling the truth even to the gods. – Lucius Annaeus Seneca
I can relate to this very well. Many of us can relate to it. When we don’t know what to do, because we are not clear about our perspectives, we are confused. If you have too many options in front of you, most probably you will end up with nothing because you are confused, you don’t know about yourself. However, you can recover yourself from this situation if you find yourself. A clear perspective will help you to do that; it will initiate the process.
The wish for healing has always been half of health. Lucius Annaeus Seneca
No matter how many times you read about happiness or try different tricks, one thing will never change it is your willingness to be happy. However, have you ever wondered how is it possible for someone like a monk living happily without anything in his life which we usually considered as the key to happiness? It is because it’s his choice. His choice makes the difference. No matter how hard is your situation, your life always matters most then sadness; if you chose yourself to be happy rest of the half part will come automatically.
It is more fitting for a man to laugh at life than to lament over it. – Lucius Annaeus Seneca
If you are a perpetual procrastinator, it’s quite possible that you will never progress in life. In fact, things never went well for those who afraid to take actions. Anything that is new in our life will come with embarrassment; it’s a part of the job. The art of becoming an expert is to laugh at your mistakes. Laughing is the process of releasing stress. It helps to let go the self-criticism and help you to make fun of your mistakes. As humans, we don’t forget the happy moments and remember the time and the process how we made that mistake, and we never repeat it again.
Sometimes even to live is an act of courage. – Lucius Annaeus Seneca
Every person’s life in this world is different; you cannot compare everyone in one nutshell. There are people those who hardly get access to a good education, and there are people those who born in a healthy educational environment. Life of every individual is different, what counts are how he deals with it. If he gives up, he is a quitter – he has no courage, but if he shows courage and pursues what he is not born with, then his work is worth considerable. He is a confident person beyond the reach of circumstances and the desire to seek more.
