Yes, I chant "Nam-Myoho-Renge-Kyo" every day to build up my inner strength -the life force-we need to overcome any obstacle to happiness that life might throw at us, at any time, on amy day.(Myoho-Renge-Kyo the title of the Lotus Sutra which is the Law of Life, the heart of the Buddha's teachings). Thanks, have a good day.

I used to be a worry freak. I worry a lot to the extent that I think and ponder hard how those beggars in the streets able to survive. What will be the future of those street children out there begging for alms. What will be the future of the poor families in my countries. I even worry about the too much pollution, jobless people, and about crime and violence in our society. Then i realized one day that I coouldn't possibly live my whole life worrying too much about all these things that i have a little control of. So, I begun to worry less...to make my life better and possibly I can have a fulfilling life no matter how crazy this world we live in.I just pray for those people who are suffering that they may have a better life ahead.

You are right that its really hard to fulfill in life cause most of us were not contented on what we have and we kept on looking of the things that we see in others. So if you want to feel fulfillment its really advisable to be contented on what you have and be happy for what you achieve and for others success.

I think you can make it fulfilling by being happy with what you have and not looking with envy at other people and trying to keep up. Material things are nice, but loved ones are more important - so make the most of time with your family and friends and be grateful for everything you have.
