We need to have few points in mind to create indestructible palace of happiness in our heart.. OUR CHECKLIST FOR HAPPINESS:
1- Courage: This is the first condition for happiness. Courageous people can overcome anything. The cowardly, on the other hand, because of their lack of of courage, fail to savor the true, profound joys of life. This is most unfortunate
2-Compassion: Second condition to become happy is that one must have compassion, love for other. Respect each life.. Love people around you in order to get that back.
3-To be filled each day with a rewarding sense of exhaliration and purpose, a sense of tasks accomplished and deep fulfillment- people who feel this way are happy. Those who have this sense of satisfaction even if they are extremely busy are much happier than those who have free time on their hands but feel empty inside
4-Fourth condition of being happy is tolerance. Those who are tolerant and broad minded make people feel comfortable and at ease.
