On the 13th April 2018, I presented my speech on “How to live peacefully and happily, and prosper in the next 50 years” at the China-Africa Peace and Development Forum at the Intercontinental Resort Hotel at Balaclava, Mauritius. It was organized in conjunction with the 50th anniversary of the independence of Mauritius.
I talked about vision and purpose, closed relationships and service to others as they relate to peace of mind, happiness and prosperity respectively. When you develop your vision and purpose in life in alignment with your humane values, integrity and ethics you will inevitably enjoy peace of mind. Take all the time necessary to visualize your success and reflect on your purpose in life.
Harvard University Happiness Study studied over 750 people for over 75 years to understand adult development and what keep them happy and healthy as they go through life. The conclusion of the Harvard Happiness Study was that close relationships keep people happy and healthy. We all need to love and be loved by our family, friends and loved ones. So spend your time nurturing close relationships with your loved ones.
Bill Gates, Warren Buffett, Oprah Winfrey, Anthony Robbins and Ma, owner of Alibaba, all earned their massive financial wealthy from serving others with products and services that people need. So don’t chase after money, rather look for opportunities to serve others in need of your skills, talents and expertise. The more people seek your products, services and expertise, the more will prosper in the next five or even fifty years.
In order to live a successful, happy and prosperous life, you should develop a vision and purpose and closed relationships, and provide service to others.
Are you living a successful, happy and prosperous life on purpose and by design? Your comments are appreciated.
