Happiness is not something ready-made. It’s not something you can buy from the grocery store or the mall. All successful people like – Lionel Messi, the football legend and Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon – and the richest man in the world – have all worked throughout life to achieve happiness.
Poor people do not have much to look forward to, so any good that comes their way lights up their day. There are millions of ways to spread happiness. Giving gifts, food, donating to charity are all material ways of spreading happiness. Spread of happiness does not have to include a transaction of money. You don’t need to be rich or happy. The real way to touch someone’s heart is to sacrifice something, to share your happiness. You may crack jokes, you may share your food and share good memories. Often sad people are lonely, you can befriend them or even give them a hug. Any step to being happy may seem small to you but even a little happiness goes a long way. When each person does even one good deed to spread happiness and goodwill, everyone will be inspired to help another and make them happy. This way happiness will spread and sadness will be uprooted.
Happiness is like a clay pot that you need to work hard to mould, and sit for hours on a wheel as you see the pot taking the shape and later as you see how beautiful your creation has become, you get happiness.
