“DON’T COMPARE YOUR LIFE TO OTHERS’. YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THIER JOURNEY IS ALL ABOUT” RICHARD BRANSON.
I’m often described as joyful – and it’s a description I’m proud of. Most people would assume my business success, and the wealth that comes with it, have brought me this happiness. But in fact it’s the reverse. I am successful, wealthy and connected because I am happy.
I am able to find joy in most situations, because I live my own life. I’ve always marched to the beat of my own drum, and I can tell you there’s nothing more satisfying that being true to yourself.
So, when I’m asked how do I keep a smile on my face, the answer is simple: I live my life, my own way.
As Regina Brett famously wrote: “Don’t compare your life to others’. You have no idea what their journey is all about.” It’s truly amazing what you can do, if you just be you.
My life hasn’t been all sunshine and rainbows, the path I’ve paved has been marred by moments of darkness. But from dark times often come turning points, which can steer us in the direction of great light.
His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Desmond Tutu wrote in their Book of Joy: “No dark fate determines the future – we do. Each day and each moment, we are able to create and recreate our lives and the very quality of human life on our planet.”
I couldn’t agree more with their sentiment. We, as humans, are not only responsible for the future of Earth, but also the happiness we experience while inhabiting it.
And while we should never compare our journey and joy to others’, we can work towards making sure the others’ journeys are as joyous as can be.
We should all work on being more friendly, generous and considerate. The more people smile, the more the world will smile. So get out there and do something that brings a smile to someone’s face.
