21. Happiness (How To Achieve Happiness)

Everyone wants to achieve success.  But every person’s definition of success is different.  It is not necessary that what you consider to be success or happiness, the other person also considers it as happiness.  That’s why you get different types of things in the world.  The world is so colorful because everyone thinks differently.  It is this way of thinking that makes the world so colorful.  Today we will see in a story that a person sees the world in his own way.  Let’s see a short story.

A man was fishing on the bank of a river.  He was singing songs while fishing and looked happy.  Just then a businessman was passing by. 

When the businessman saw that fisherman, he started thinking how foolish this person is, who is fishing with a fork and wasting his time and thinking this, he goes to that fisherman.  and tell him what are you doing here?

The fisherman replied that I am fishing here.

Then the businessman said that the fish is not caught in this way.

So the man asked, then how is the fish caught?

Then the businessman said that you should buy a net so that you can catch more fish.

Then the man asked, what will happen if I catch more fish?

Then the businessman said that you will get more money if you sell them in the market.

Then the man said what would happen then?

The businessman said that if you get more money, you can buy more nets and then catch more fish from it.

Then the man said that more money will come, then what will I do?

Then the businessman said that then you can buy a boat and go to the far sea and catch a lot of fish.

The man said, “Come on, I will accept your point.  I caught more fish and sold and earned more money and now I have bought a boat and now I go to a distant sea and catch fish but what will happen then?

Then the businessman said then you can sell those more fish and buy a steamer and then you can catch more fish.  You can also hire people.

Then the man said that let’s say I bought a steamer and now I catch a lot of fish and I have a lot of people working.  But what about it?

Then the businessman taunted and said that now you have become the owner.  Now you can have fun.  Because others will do the work.

Then the answer given to the man is the gist of this story.  The man said, “What am I doing at this time?  I’m just having fun.  Why do you need to work so hard to have fun?

That man is absolutely right.  If you just want to enjoy it, it doesn’t require a lot of resources.  He doesn’t need to be a big businessman.  He doesn’t even need a lot of servants and luxurious bungalows. 

If you want to enjoy it, you can enjoy what you have right now.  Because being happy is a mental state and changing the mental state is in our hands, within our control.  I am not saying that we should not act.  All I am saying is that we should always be happy. 

Then we can be in any situation.  Be happy with the resources we have, keep striving for what you don’t have.  But not while being sad, but while being happy.
