Success Is Not Happiness. Happiness Is Success Poem by AiR Atman in Ravi

Success Is Not Happiness. Happiness Is Success

Rating: 5.0


If Success was Happiness

Then achievers would be glad

But look around and you will find

That many of them are sad



Of course, Achievement gives joy

And excitement, oh boy!

But when our need becomes our greed

To misery, this will lead



The whole world is chasing Success

Everyone wants achievement

Sometimes we win, sometimes we lose

There is no Contentment



Why do people want to succeed?

Why is everyone in a race?

The Truth is that we want to win

So that there is a smile on our face



But though we win, we are not glad

We have money, why are we sad?

Happiness is not money, the sages said

It's sleeping soundly when you are in bed



We hear of suicides in the homes of the rich

If they were Happy, then why this glitch?

Although they are achievers, this fact we know

They are not Happy, their face has no glow



If successful, but unhappy, what is the use?

Winning or smiling, what would you choose?

The purpose of Success is for us to be glad

What is the use of winning, if it makes us sad?



Happiness is something different, we learn

Not just money that we earn and burn

Happiness is built on a foundation of peace

Then we are blissful like waves in the seas



Look around at the people who are glad

They live in the moment, they are never sad

They don't swing from the future to the past

They are the ones whose Happiness lasts



Happiness has no price tag, know this my friend

It's a state of mind where nothing can offend

It's being able to smile, and able to laugh

Not just trying to raise our Success graph



We can't measure joy in dollar and pound

Happy is he who peace has found

Though we may fly the world around

We may be miserable on the ground



Success is not Happiness, this Truth we must know

We may have everything, what's the use of this show?

The truly successful one is he

Who lives with smile, laughter, and glee



If one is Happy, then one has achieved all

One doesn't have to be rich and in fame be tall

One can have little, but if content is he

Then he can live joyously



Achievement gives Happiness, this fact we know

But with Fulfilment and Contentment, does Happiness grow

One who is Happy, doesn't need to win

He has Peace and Joy without committing sin



Joy doesn't need a foundation of cash

One doesn't have to be rich, to enjoy life's bash

Happiness is a simple state of the mind

It comes from being loving, it comes from being Kind



Happiness is Success. It is achieving life's goal

It is being Happy in the heart, Peaceful in the Soul

True Happiness is eternal, not just a moment of joy

It last's forever, it can't be destroyed



Success is a journey of valleys and peaks

Life is a see-saw, there arelaughs and squeaks

Success, unlike Happiness, doesn't last for long

But the truly Happy ones always sing a Happy song



So, Success is not Happiness, Happiness is Success

You may be an achiever, whose heart is not at rest

But though not successful, if Happy you are

Then you are an achiever, you are the very best

And conclusion- Success is not Happiness, Happiness is Success! wonderful discussion about the happiness and success Yes, success is not final goal, success is full of responsibility, liability and increases righteous effort; on the other hand happiness is merely a mental condition; every success can't make happy at a time......well written.......deserve 10+
