Nine Promises that Bring Happiness

December 14, 2008 at 1:43 pm 6 comments

We seek happiness in the wrong places and in the wrong form. The primary cause of unhappiness is simply wanting too much, over emphasizing the material things…Happiness begins where selfishness ends.

Strategy to find happiness is to make and keep nine promises:

PROMISE to talk about health, happiness and prosperity as often as possible.

PROMISE to make all your friends know there is something in them that is special and that you value.

 

PROMISE to think only of the best, to work only for the best, and to expect only the best in yourself and others.

 

PROMISE to be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own.

 

PROMISE to be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind.

 

PROMISE to forget the mistakes of the past and press on to greater achievements in the future.

 

PROMISE to wear a cheerful appearance at all times and give every person you meet a smile.

 

PROMISE to give so much time improving yourself that you have no time to criticize others.

 

PROMISE to be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, and too happy to permit trouble to press on you.

House in Paradise!

Narrated AbuUmamah: The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: I guarantee a house in the surroundings of Paradise for a man who avoids quarrelling even if he were in the right, a house in the middle of Paradise for a man who avoids lying even if he were joking, and a house in the upper part of Paradise for a man who made his character good.(Sunan Abu Dawood,Book 41, Number 4782)
