Happiness isn’t just a gift, but a skill that can be learned and cultivated.
People always rely on shortcuts like watching television, eating, and shopping
to feel happy. But external satisfaction may lead to a sense of emptiness and
even depression. Authentic happiness comes from identifying and cultivating
people’s strengths like kindness, humor, and generosity.
Your goal can be something as simple as doing all your homework, paying
attention in class, or spending some time each day reading a book. Maybe
you’ll decide to get involved in an extracurricular activity, or volunteer in
your community.Maybe you’ll decide to stand up forkids who are being teased
or bullied because of who they are or how they look,because you believe, like
I do, that all young people deserve a safe environmentto study and learn. Maybe
you’ll decide to take better care of yourself so you can be more ready to learn.
Success is to keep moving forward, even if it’s just a little step. Keep doing
this, and you will eventually taste the joy of success. The person without regrets
is successful. There’s nothing that canbe done about the past. The most important
thing is to try your best and not regret the results. A successful person is one who
has his or her own goal. The person firmly and consistently tries to achieve and
finally fulfills his or her ambition.
