How Want's to be a Millionaire if You Don't Have Self-Esteem?
Who Wants to be a Millionaire if You Don't Have Self-Esteem? Think of a time when you felt genuine happiness. How did that feel? What was the situation? In my own case, the times when I feel really, really happy are often when Im out walking on my own in the forest. Nothing special has happened. Nothing has changed in my life. I have not won the lottery and I have not got promoted. I simply feel happy. The world looks beautiful. My life seems easy and purposeful. I feel blessed. In other words, the feeling of happiness comes from inside myself rather than from any external source. If genuine happiness comes from inside yourself, becoming a millionaire wouldnt make you any happier than what you are now. Getting promoted wouldnt make you a happy person. Living in a beautiful house and having a sports car wouldnt turn you into Mr Happiness. Only YOU can make yourself happy. You may be protesting. You may say that you actually were happy when you bought your sports car. But how long did that happiness last? And how about if your car had broken down one hour after you bought it? Then you wouldnt have been very happy any longer, would you? In other words, your happiness was dependent on something in the external world matching the image that you had in your head on what it should be like. When Im walking in forest and suddenly feel really, really happy I feel so regardless of what the world around me looks like at that moment. To feel genuine happiness you have to build up an acceptance and love towards yourself and your life. If you love the life youre living you have reason to be happy ALL THE TIME. Happiness is not just for lucky people who were born under a happy star. Happiness comes from practice with accepting and loving ourselves, our lives, the people in our lives and everything that happens to us. You can choose to learn to become a happy person.
