SECRET OF HAPPINESS
(The following speech is perfect for 1 min. to 1.05 min)
Happiness does not consist in riches. True wealth would be much better defined as ‘character’ for a one can only be happy when one is at peace with oneself. The richest men are often the most unhappy since they do not realise that a man’s wealth does not consist in the abundance of things which he possesses, but in the sort of man that he is. The Greeks wrote over the entrance of one of their most famous temples the words- “Know Thyself.” They understood that in order to be happy, a man must face life honestly. He cannot expect to get if never gives. He cannot expect to be happy if he never makes others happy. A man’s ‘life is of no importance or value at all, unless he succeeds in influencing, helping and encouraging those among whom he lives. For too many people are not living at all, but are just existing for themselves alone; they receive no happiness from life because they never give.
Q. According to you can one practice all the said aspects of life?
Ans. No doubt all this is difficult to follow but if one is determined one can achieve every goal and once these habits are practised they will become habits, and if they come in practice life will become full of happiness.
