Do only that we really enjoy doing

Happiness will elude us if we are not honest about our feelings and experience in life.

Following trends, succumbing to parental pressure and giving importance to what society considers as measure of success will never make us happy. We will regret in future.

Our choices should be our choices; it should not be influenced by external factors.

Only that money, fame and success will ensure happiness, which we have earned out of our passion and interest.

Do only that we really enjoy doing. Abhilash
