Kirsan Ilyumzhinov: To become happy, you don’t have to rush somewhere, overtake someone and win something from others

“The world belongs to those who are happy with it”. I always liked this slogan. They say that it is advertised on Indian buses. I like this approach. And I'm usually happy with the world.

Yes, if you love the world, it will reciprocate. You can, of course, change the way of thinking: condemn neighbours, judge what you don’t know, constantly use the phrase I don’t like: “but if I were in your shoes…” This fuss has nothing to do with life of world.
The last thing I want to teach is how to live. Without any coquetry I will say that sometimes I myself do not know this. Sometimes books written by great writers, philosophical and spiritual works come to the rescue. Sometimes just talking to a smart person is enough.
What I am sure of is that the Higher powers, when you turn to them with pure thoughts, will not leave a person without an answer. Sometimes it may seem that they have forgotten about you, do not respond to prayers, and your soul is discouraged. But this, believe me, is a false feeling.

A break is always required to see new roads, to find a way out of the hopeless situation. Life itself gives us such moments when we must slow down and stop running. In such cases, you need to take a break, after which everything will change, and, first of all, we ourselves. Life will become more interesting.

We need to get used to the idea that the other person does not have to be like us at all. Everyone has their own outlook on life, their own point of view. And all this may be significantly different from what we would like to see. Every person including ourselves is the whole universe. We must respect someone else's love, someone else's life, someone else's choice. All people are real. Every one of them.
To become happy, it is not necessary to rush somewhere, overtake someone and win something from others. It’s enough to be yourself. And it would be nice to learn to understand those who we meet. And here's another important thing to remember: all bad things must come to an end. Often during our lifetime.
You just need to let joy into your heart. It’s a pity that we don’t write everywhere that “the world belongs to those who are happy with it!”
