6. Seeking happiness in materialistic fulfillment.
Materialistic things are invented in order to make life easier. They can only increase the comfort level of your daily activities. Although they are good to have, you must not let yourself believe that these things can bring you absolute happiness and peace.
Our material needs can only fulfill our physical needs. But, the satisfaction which we need for true happiness is miles away from the materialistic gain. Nowadays it is everywhere that people run after money and luxury. However, we seldom notice that those who own these luxuries don’t sleep peacefully either.
To get rid of this poisonous idea, you only need to persuade yourself that there is life beyond these luxuries. Physical items don’t bring peace and happiness and this is a fact that must be taught from childhood.
Those who are trapped in this fear have actually set a downhill path for themselves. It is fine if you think you can’t win all the time. However, when you start thinking that you can never win; then you have actually lost your will to win.
Start believing in yourself. You must think that losing is actually a way to learn new things. Start preparing yourself for a new act every time with enthusiasm. Once you adopt the path of optimism and self-belief, you will have won half the battle.
I will conclude on a suggestive note. One must not let their emotions rule them. If you start fighting against your own evil, you will earn great victories and happiness in life.
