Just because you finish college and you have that almighty degree doesn't mean you will have a beautiful life, a big house or a happy family. Happiness isn't the destination, it's the journey along the way. If you always strive for happiness by working hard, you may not always find the reward at the end. As John Lennon sang, "Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans." Truer words were never spoken.

It is the general notion that when you have a big house, you are successful. And if you're successful, you will have a happy family and beautiful life. I actually thought so too. When i was just out of college, all I wanted was to have a big house, cars, lots of money. I actually was given the chance to have everything I wished for. Question is, was I happy? unfortunately, that wasn't so. I had other problems in life that made me forget how blessed I was to have the material things other people could only dream of. I learned that great wealth is does not guarantee to happiness. It all depends on how you preceive happiness. Your family can be happy even if you live a modest life.

Wrong! Your success does not depend on whether you finish college or not. It depends on how hard you are willing to work. The beautiful life, big house and happy family will not drop into your lap like magic. Working towards success is a life long journey! Setting goals and achieving them without hurting people along the way. You want a beautiful life? You have to treat life beautifully. Want a big house? Work, work and then some more work. Happy family? Work on yourself, because if you are not happy you cannot make any one else happy.
