Love is another form of dedication, passion and consistent performance. The best technique to evaluate happiness is to understand the value of a situation and act upon it wisely. We can say that happiness is indirectly proportional to love. Happiness is not something we can buy, it has to be created. Love is not a relationship between nations. It is a condition of mind brought about by serenity of soul. Love is not merely the absence of war. It is also a state of peace. Lasting love can come only to lovely people.
As per the above diagram 1.1, if you want to become a most lovable person at the workplace/ within your family, you have to be very dedicated, passionate and consistent to create happiness in life with respect to the value of a situation. Every effort has a unique situational circumstance. Situational variables can exert powerful influences over human behavior, more than what we recognize or acknowledge. Without love, money loses value. Love is more important than money. You work to provide for yourself and your family. Without love there is little to inspire you to work harder or to have nicer things. There is also no one to whom you can leave the things you have worked hard for in life, and you can’t take them with you when you pass away. I think that if you wish to live a truly happy life, it is more important to have love than a lot of money. Having the love of someone is very important, because humans are very sociable, and it is very important to have close relationships with people you can always turn to.
Value of situation broadly categorized in the following way:
As per the diagram 1.2, every situation has its own importance, and value of situation can be categorised based on the necessity, and accordingly dedication, passion & consistency can be applied upon. You can’t give low importance to right dedication and vice-versa. The crux behind putting all these fundamental ingredients pictorially is to emphasize on the understanding of flow and its correlation. Have we determined whether there are any difficulties in achieving happiness? Absolutely — NOT. In short, our own mind-set does decide the path of happiness, with higher/medium/lower importance. We are the drivers of our own lives, until and unless there is something negative in our minds. Generally, our human mind prefers to think more instead of work more, and according to surveys 70% of people do think they are not happy in life, that’s a cause of ‘failure’. Thinking itself is an input of the required outcome.
As shown in diagram 1.3, Accepting challenge and quickly understanding the value of a situation, surely makes the difference and ultimately leads to complete happiness. Always keep in mind, medium/high influence with respect to your consistent efforts will lead to ‘low risk’. You can easily evaluate yourself while accessing above failure controller in mathematical terms, based on the particular quadrant.
Quadrant (I) — Very low influence: If we are not aware about the surrounding culture and the requirements of society, then we should keep ourselves on this quadrant, which may definitely lead to high risk while looking forward to happiness in life. The bottom line is that we have to be very clear and respectful about our society along with the value of situation.
How to take ourselves out from this quadrant is a key here. All of us know the root cause of our low influence with respect to the ‘situation’. Nothing is impossible in today’s world, if we do have appropriate control on our mind. Now, immediately your brain will trigger towards — How can we have control over the mind? Self-control defines the appropriate dedications/passion/ consistency towards situation. Lot of improvement is required — when we find ourselves on this portion. Improvement can easily be done, after reading motivational and inspirational articles, and also after meeting our neighbours/ friends while sharing our problems. Sharing problems will eventually solve the problems sometimes.
Quadrant (II) — Low influence: This is similar to the quadrant (I), there being not much difference between them. Generally impact of the risk is similar, and scope of improvement is always there to refresh the quadrant (I) parameters. Hiding the problem is itself the ‘birth of disaster’. If you want to keep happiness in your life, you have to work towards it. Don’t hope — work for it.
Quadrant (III) & (IV) — Medium/High influence: If you are able to understand the situation very quickly along with appropriate steps towards the situation that has arisen, then you can put yourself on this quadrant. Low risk itself has low importance, but sometimes low risk also can convert into ‘high’ one, due to arrogance and ignorance of the right steps. As all of us know, failure is temporary and success is not final. Every human being has strengths and weaknesses; we should learn to accept our mistakes.
Why are love and happiness merged together? How do they correlate with each other?
The main reason behind the correlation between love and happiness is your dedication/passion and consistency to deal with value of situation. If you love to work upon something, then definitely happiness would be the resulting factor.
(L) Denotes — Life as well.
Lifetime latitude logically liaising, logically life leave longitude. Long-lasting lesson laugh lesser lonely. Liaising logically likelihood learn, love life logically lifetime.
If we try to understand the formation of the word (LOVE), each letter describes a different intended meaning.
L — Loyalty
O — Optimism
V — Value
E — Energy
Energy which transmits the valuable and legal optimism known as ‘LOVE’.
L + E = Dedication (D)
O + V = Passion (P)and L+O+V+E = Consistency ©
Perhaps the above mathematical calculations look pretty odd, but if you think very practically about these equations, the results would be different. I mean you can win a battle in case of the worst situation too. If we combine the D + P + C = Happiness, indirectly resulting dedication, passion and consistency points to love and interest. Nobody describes the value of happiness once he/she has gone through the legal track of life. If we love our job, if we love what we do, that’s a key of happiness as well. Initial level of interest defines the intensity of continued efforts to achieve happiness. We should learn from the success story of the person and ‘failure’ as well. Life is very easy, but surrounding ingredients can make it complicated some times. We have to learn to find out which those surrounding ingredients are. If we are able to find out, it means we are near to ‘happiness’ and this is called intelligence as well.
In another way, we can try to understand the formation of the word (HAPPINESS), where each letter describes a different intended meaning.
H — Honesty
A — Ability
P — Prosperity
P — Positivity
I — Intellectuality
N — Nobility
E — Enormity
S — Security
S — Sensitivity 5
The reason for writing such elaborate meanings of valuable words is to describe to you the actual correlation of daily routine. If you think on each and every letter as described above, you will crack the encrypted puzzle in the upcoming days in life.Honesty is a primary attribute for creating happiness, and then ability comes into the picture to drive further. Prosperity navigates towards positivity,and positivity leads to intellectuality which creates nobility. Enormity requires some kind of security while navigating towards sensitivity. The foundation elements for a balanced life are honesty, character, integrity, faith, love and loyalty.We have to stand up for what we believe in, even when we might not be popular for it. Honesty starts with being ourselves and true to what we are and what we believe in, and that may not always be popular, but it will always let you follow your dreams and your heart with the right amount of confidence. #Honesty.
The worth of life lies not in how much wealth we acquire, but in our integrity and our ability to affect people around positively- that is known as ability.
I believe that the biggest problem and blunder that humanity faces is ego sensitivity in finding out whether one is right or wrong, and in identifying what one’s strengths and weaknesses are. #Sensitivity. Locking something important is a key; Growth demands a temporary surrender of security. It may mean giving up familiar but limiting patterns, safe but unrewarding work, values no longer believed in, and relationships that have lost their meaning. #Security6
Happiness absolute model (Diagram: 1.4), will give you the basic navigation techniques to create happiness. All the above mentioned nine inputs are clearly depicting the world of happiness and how to traverse accordingly. We can realize now why love is more important to create happiness in life.
Mr. Sachin Tendulkar is the best example of the situation described above. If he hadn’t loved to play cricket, then he wouldn’t be able to achieve the Master Blaster title. His loving desire towards cricket, created permanent happiness in his life, and that’s why we love him and Indian cricket. As all of us know, there were many people involved behind Mr. Tendulkar’s success, as he took every difficulty as a lesson and worked towards it to convert into happiness. The same story is true of many actors, athletes and cricketers. If we can’t love our profession, then definitely we can’t create happiness while handling challenges in our profession.
There are no shortcuts to success/happiness, also any boundaries for learning. If we are investing the right amount of efforts behind the targeted situation, definitely the outcome would be as expected, only point being ‘what is the value of situation (refer diagram 1.2 — types of VOS)’. Value of situation would be volatile sometimes, but dedication and efforts should be very pure. The diagram 1.5 below represents the nature of situation, and how we have to prioritize with respect to VOS (value of situation). Very low importance/low importance should be volatile based on our expected outcome. The point here is to maintain the high & medium importance value of situation according to non-volatile nature of VOS.
Earth and sky, woods and fields, lakes and rivers, the mountain and the sea, are excellent schoolmasters, and teach some of us more than we can ever learn from books. One of the most tragic things I know about human nature is that all of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon, instead of enjoying the roses that are blooming just outside in our daily routine. When we love something with the right dedication and efforts, there would be 90% chances to reach the targeted level. Even with all our technology and the inventions that make modern life so much easier than it once was, it takes just one big natural disaster to wipe all that away and remind us that, here on Earth, we’re still at the mercy of nature and situations. Nature is so powerful, so strong. Capturing its essence is not easy — your work becomes a dance with light and the weather. It takes you to a place within yourself.
