Here is an ultimate secret to happiness and success: Cease to exist, disappear. In other words, throw out your personal desires and ambitions, and replace them with a genuine, burning wish for the welfare of others, for the happiness and success of others. Focus fully on the needs of others. Work for them — strive for them — dream for them — and forget that you exist.
Now, this doesn’t mean that you stop living. Rather, it means that when you eat, sleep, go on holidays, etc. you do so for others. How so? — You eat, sleep, and go on holidays that you may have the push and creativity to help and inspire others, and thereby improve their lot in life.
Can such living really make me happy, successful? — Taste it, and you’ll know.
Is such a way of life possible? — Try it, and you’ll see.
Does anyone actually live like this? — Yes, this is just how the Creator lives.
