The Secret to Being Happy for Others’ Success

The secret to being happy for others’ success is to have the confidence that you will have your season of success at the right time. It’s accepting the reality that everyone has different timelines in life. It is understanding that clapping for others’ achievements while waiting for yours to happen doesn’t make you small. It is focusing on improving your skills and attitude while going through a series of challenges towards your goals. The whole secret to being open-minded and supportive of your peers’ successes is by discerning that their wins do not take away your chances of succeeding. Just because they’re enjoying the result of their hard work first doesn’t mean you won’t have your time to shine. Remember that patience is a fundamental virtue and is the very foundation of your dreams that takes you places. 

Here's How You Live A Happy Life In Your Twenties

Happiness, much like success, is subjective to different people who come from unique walks of life.  It’s a controversial term for everyone because when one talks about it, there can never be one universal definition. There is no definite value,  measurement of happiness, nor a reliable source from where we can get full and permanent access to it. It just doesn’t work that way.

Many say happiness is a short-term feeling that comes when you’re in a happy state of mind, like when you finish a task way before the deadline or when you buy the camera you’ve been saving for months, and slowly fades away when you no longer care about it. On the flip side, some would say that you would only experience genuine happiness as a long-term satisfaction only when you overcome the dark and lonely times of your life. Others say happiness is a feeling of contentment where you look over the brighter side of things even when in totality, it’s dark and lonely. Some would also say that happiness is temporary, fickle, and fake; it’s a myth. But no, happiness is real. It’s very real.
