Secrets of a happy life – News online

In ancient times, in the Far East, somewhere in India, a donkey fell into a living mud. There was no way he could get him out, no matter how hard he tried. He could not watch the animals suffer and decided to shorten his suffering.

He started pouring earth and sand on the donkey. The donkey felt the burden on his back and shuddered, so he stopped at what fell from under his feet. The man continued to pour, and the donkey to shake the earth and sand. The more he poured, the more the donkey came out of the mud. In a few hours, the donkey shook so much off itself that it came out of the living mud.

The message of the story is not to despair when a business or private problem occurs, but to see an opportunity to shake it off, to stand on what you have shaken, and to pull yourself out of problems and difficulties.

Without resistance there is no flight

We often wonder why problems arise, what their purpose is and how to turn them into something good. First, whether a situation is problematic depends to a large extent on our interpretation, maybe it is just a life situation, necessary for further progress, for development.

Here is an example of an airplane, we all know that an airplane would take off if air resistance was needed, and it is this air resistance that creates the force necessary for the monstrosity to rise to the sky under the clouds, and of course far above the clouds. Without resistance there would be no flight, and so it is in life.

If you’ve ever built a house, and many have, you’ve certainly encountered a host of problems. They say when you see someone talking to themselves that you know that they are either not very good with mental health or are building a house.

Positive attitude

Namely, building a house means encountering a lot of unknown situations, problems, but again, when you finish it all nicely, take the film back and see that these were not problems but situations that simply had to happen on your way.

This is the case in most life situations, so the desired outcome is largely the result of our attitude towards situations that inevitably happen to us. If our relationship, our attitude, is positive, then the outcome is almost guaranteed to be positive, and vice versa.

One of the secrets of life is what we think about something and how we treat it, because it is impossible to experience a negative situation often and intensely, and to expect that everything is fine with our health and life in general.

Focus your attention

After all, it is not natural for us to think about something bad all the time. The best way to understand the complete nonsense of keeping a negative situation in your head, or a problem, is to compare it to a situation when you hear a good joke.

Imagine coming to the company of a person who repeats the same joke several times, no matter how good it is, but after two or three times it will no longer be funny, even though it is fantastic at first listening. Imagine listening to that same joke for days. Well a man would go crazy!

On the other hand, doesn’t it happen that we think about a problem intensively for days? Here is one of the secrets of a happy life, to understand that what we pay attention to determines our life. It is up to us to determine what we will pay our attention to, our thoughts, because that is exactly what will determine everything that happens to us in everyday life.

After all, the best way to predict the future is to create it.
