WHAT DOES PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS MEAN?
The pursuit of happiness is defined as a fundamental right mentioned in the Declaration of Independence to freely pursue joy and live life in a way that makes you happy, as long as you don’t do anything illegal or violate the rights of others.
Jan 2019 – I failed as a Businessman – I lost everything I ever own….but is that a failure – NO…as I re-collect during my success days – WAS I REALLY HAPPY? – Honestly it was a fake happiness!! I tried to be happy and tried to be strong…but in fact it was like a cancer – killing me step by step….the picture above is a great reminder – “Happiness is like being children and enjoy each days as it comes.”
I decided to “PURSUE FOR HAPPYNESS”
Pursuit of happiness. The Declaration of Independence states that everyone has certain “unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” The pursuit of happiness is the right to build your own life, to seek to live your dream. These days my dreams are not being rich or being successful in what I do but rather to make sure that I am happy in what I am doing right now.
DREAMS are like this picture above – the field is huge and the potential is incredible – but there is a tree that blocking your dreams…all you need to do is the cut the tree so that YOU can see the dream clearer….
TREE THAT IS BLOCKING – IN REAL LIFE.
- Failure in business
- Lost of employment
- Lost of Income
- Lost of friends
If you allow these to stop you from being happy – stop a moment and ask yourself – am I going to get drowned with all the above? and Stop you from being happy? NEVER!!!
You have choices in life;
- Worried about it or
- Move forward and look for solution – reminds me of a great parable;
The Parable of the Sower – there is NEVER A 100% SUCCESS!!! REMEMBER THAT!!
That same day Jesus went out of the house and sat by the lake. Such large crowds gathered around him that he got into a boat and sat in it, while all the people stood on the shore. Then he told them many things in parables, saying: “A farmer went out to sow his seed. As he was scattering the seed, some fell along the path, and the birds came and ate it up. Some fell on rocky places, where it did not have much soil. It sprang up quickly, because the soil was shallow. But when the sun came up, the plants were scorched, and they withered because they had no root. Other seed fell among thorns, which grew up and choked the plants. Still other seed fell on good soil, where it produced a crop—a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown. Whoever has ears, let them hear.” The disciples came to him and asked, “Why do you speak to the people in parables?” He replied, “Because the knowledge of the secrets of the kingdom of heavenhas been given to you, but not to them. Whoever has will be given more, and they will have an abundance. Whoever does not have, even what they have will be taken from them. 13 This is why I speak to them in parables:“Though seeing, they do not see; though hearing, they do not hear or understand. In them is fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah: “‘You will be ever hearing but never understanding; you will be ever seeing but never perceiving. For this people’s heart has become calloused; they hardly hear with their ears, and they have closed their eyes; Otherwise they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their heart and turn, and I would heal them.’ But blessed are your eyes because they see, and your ears because they hear.For truly I tell you, many prophets and righteous people longed to see what you see but did not see it, and to hear what you hear but did not hear it. “Listen then to what the parable of the sower means: When anyone hears the message about the kingdom and does not understand it, the evil one comes and snatches away what was sown in their heart. This is the seed sown along the path.The seed falling on rocky ground refers to someone who hears the word and at once receives it with joy. But since they have no root, they last only a short time. When trouble or persecution comes because of the word, they quickly fall away. The seed falling among the thorns refers to someone who hears the word, but the worries of this life and the deceitfulness of wealth choke the word, making it unfruitful. But the seed falling on good soil refers to someone who hears the word and understands it. This is the one who produces a crop, yielding a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown.”
I DECIDED TO PUT MY FAITH IN GOD!! AND HONOUR HIM SO THAT MY PERSPECTIVE AND MY VIEWS MOVING FORWARD WILL BE CLEAR AS A CRYSTAL GLASS!!
MY VIEWS ARE CLEAR NOW AND I WILL FIGHT A GOOD FIGHT AND BE A GREAT TESTIMONY FOR MY CREATOR.
