Today's Motivation comes from the Dalai Lama:
People take different roads seeking fulfillment and happiness. Just because they're not on your road doesn't mean they've gotten lost.
Happiness is closely linked to achievement. People achieve in different ways every day, whether it is becoming an Olympian, building a school or passing an exam. The sense of accomplishment is a great factor in the road to fulfillment and happiness.
Although the road to fulfillment and happiness may vary for different people, there is one unifying factor we need to appreciate - a road to happiness does exist. Whatever it is that we actively seek out in order to provide us with happiness and fulfillment, we acknowledge that happiness is not something that simply happens by its own accord, it is the result of, or reaction to something else, whether faith, friendship or success.
It is important that we are tolerant of the roads other people take, even if they are wildly different to our own. It is all too easy to assume that because something has worked for you, then it is the answer for someone else, but this is not necessarily the case. There is much to be taken from the above quote, and one of its leading lessons is one of open-mindedness and acceptance.
