hi to all well, this is kind of sad discussion, I know compares yourself to another is biggest mistake of any human, because all peoples destinies are changed to each other, I dunno why this thing grows in our country & society fast, that If you go US/UK you spend a better life you get quick rich & peoples respecting you even you do a sweeper/cleaner job in US/UK, But If you do any white collar (computer operator/accountant) job with less pay you have no value in Pakistan, I'm sorry guys this is reality After so many researches I got it US/UK are not a name of any heaven nor there money plants grew & milk & honey rivers are exists, also its just a dream that peoples go & get quick rich, but if you came here & see the peoples craze you are shocked, every month thousand of $$$ fraud happens here for sake of foreign citizenship/visa/job but peoples keeps throwing their hard earned money in this game, I agree & like one thing about those developing countries??? & its, peoples saying "We are happy" & "We are fine", for those who are residing in US, I'm seven seas away from you??? but can you guys share with me a Secret of "HAPPY LIFE" so I tells to our country peoples & we also live a happy life??? anyone??? have a nice day...

The secret is there is none. As long as you are searching for it you will miss everything around you. Real happiness you will find inside of yourself. Money, property, people can make you feel more comfortable, Lucky or happy, but if you don't have that feeling inside, you will never feel happy. Also keep in mind happiness is not there every day of your life. If so you would not recognize it.

Do not ask too much Do not put yourself too hard Set a reasonable goal for life and for yourself and try your best to achieve it. For doing everything, step by step Try less to be a day dreamer

Well, we need to be happy in order for us to enjoy life because it just comes with it. I'm not sure though if it's easy to live life in the US or UK. I have an aunt who works in the US and she always told us that life is not easy there. She had to endure a lot to get a job, and keep it. Maybe you had a great opportunity that's why you were able to say that but I don't think it is always the case.

Hey friend. tushavi, There is no secret of a HAPPY LIFE. If there is a secret and it is revealed then, there will result to HAPPINESS already. It is quite frustrating that our countries, both don't belong to the top countries. I am sorry that I have heard so many bad news about your country Pakistan well, I can not say that my country is a good news too. but you know what, I guess.... no not guess, I strongly believe and in my heart I am sure that you will be happier among other Pakistanis. You know why because you have the desires and aspirations in your heart and in your mind. The secret of HAPPY LIFE?.... I think the secret is in your heart. what your desires, what your dreams are. you don't need to be in another country or belong to another nationality to be able to have a "happy life". [i]You want change and you know what is wrong where you are, then you are willing to change and make a difference. [/i] BELIEVE YOU CAN TUSHAVI and YOU ARE HALFWAY THERE. such a beautiful discussion...

To be happy or sad is up to the individual, not the country he lives in. I've seen poor people happy and rich people sad, both living in the same country. This is a choice you make yourself. See the positive in any situation and don't look for the bad.

Happiness is a state of mind.If you know how to derive happiness in any situation,you can be happy always.Read The Bible from the four gospels,you will learn the secret of happiness.Otherwise the grass will be greener on the other side always. United states has it's own problem,so let us be happy in our country and give thanks for all the grace we enjoy from the Almighty.Pray for the prosperity and peace of your own country.

You know the secret of "happy life" is within yourself. On how you will response to your nature, the way how you live and your manner of thinking. If you are positive thinker for sure you will appreciate all around you even the smallest thing. Every time thanks to Allah for all the graces you received and life you have. Now about the life in other country...especially at US / UK , its so nice to hear that if we hear some are living there they are for sure getting rich and have a good life. YeS and NO. As i told you it is depend to ourselves. Now if you have a chance to be there.,you don't know what kind of life you have. For sure you will be working anything according to your status. Mostly a worker like what you said. Because most of the rich country they're not prioritize foreign people to work as same as their level "white collar job." i have lots of cousins living in US UK CANADA and some countries who migrate there.. and they told us that life there are not easy if you dont have a job. BUt we are thankful because all of my cousins there are all well family and have good jobs coz they're born there and natural citizens of said countries. As i told you the "real happiness come from within" form your inner feelings on how you will accept the life positively.. Think Allah and thanks HIM for the life and graces... Life there and anywhere are the same only the currency differ because we always have the comparisons in everything... this is the one make us "discontented" to what we have in our hand.... Be happy my friend and have a nice day to you...

The truth is a happy life is within you. The constant struggle to obtain happiness outside yourself is very costly and if you obtain your goals, in order to be happy with outside things you will find yourself in constant race to obtain more and more. Things do not make you happy. You are the only one that can make yourself happy. When you are young you think, I will be happy if I get ??? But once you get those and look back you may very well find that you were happiest when you had little or nothing. Even now if you take a good look at yourself and ask when am I the happiest? You will see what makes you happy. I hope this makes sense to you, it breaks my heart to see young people work and work to get somewhere and when they get there they realize that they have spent their life, their health and are still not happy.

Money, richness, wealth are not the gauged or measurement for one's success. Whatever is your faith and religion if you fail and neglect the importance of a Supreme Being or God for that matter, you couldn't feel the real happiness in life. So a happy life is having a strong faith with Him, always acknowledge Him that He always does care for His people, pray or whatever you think is possible to give Him thanks of every good things you received everyday, pay Him a visit to His House, Church everyday Sunday or the day you always meet with your fellow faithfuls, and the last commit all these things by yourself. Do you get my line of thinking here: In a nutshell it is: Have a strong faith Acknowledge Him Pray to Him Pay Him a visit Yourself is very important for this commitment. So be it!
