Happiness is a state of mind. It’s a feeling that keeps people healthy and fit. Even though, the word sounds too simple; but it is actually difficult to achieve nowadays. We all want happiness, but we seldom know the actual route to attain true happiness. There are many meditation or yoga centers that give a speech on happiness. There can be a situation when you may be required to deliver one of such speeches. We are sharing some sample speech on happiness that would certainly help you to impress your audience.
Long and Short Speech on Happiness
Good Morning Friends!
I hope that you all are enjoying your day so far! I am the motivational speaker and I am often called at schools and colleges to deliver speeches that can inspire young and aspiring students like you. I am very sure that each one of you want to achieve success in your life and if I ask you, what is more, important for you ‘happiness’ or ‘success’; you would probably take seconds to choose ‘success’ as more important element of your life, which is good in a way. But happiness is something that can be achieved even without being successful.
Many people associate success with happiness and they feel that they can be happy only if they are successful which shouldn’t be the case because success is circumstantial and happiness is not. You can stay happy even if you don’t own a big bungalow, huge car or fat bank balance, etc. But the important thing is that you must first identify what makes you happy?
Everyone is looking for happiness but only very few people actually know what makes them happy in life. Even though life poses various challenges and obstacles in life; you should always be prepared to accept and overcome those challenges, but as far as our happiness is concerned there is no secret mantra for happiness and so you must try to find out where your true happiness lies. Always remember that your life would always be what you make it.
There are some basic rules which you must adopt if you want to stay happy and enjoy each and every moment of your life. The first and most important rule is to live in the present. You might have failed in the past, but the best thing is to seek a lesson from those and move forward as whatever might have happened in the past cannot be changed in the present; thus there is no gain in lamenting over the past. In addition, the future is unseen; you cannot be certain about the circumstances that are likely to occur in the future. Thus, you shouldn’t make big plans for the future. Of course, you must be prepared for the circumstances but you cannot be certain about it. So trust me the best thing is to stay and live in the present because only that is what can be controlled and can make you happy.
Another important thing is to stay positive in your life and you must also watch your attitude towards your competitors and should never nurture ill feelings towards them. Always indulge in healthy competition and should never take your competition beyond a point where you start treating them as your rivals and get into any kind of enmity. You should only attempt to get ahead of them and not harm them in any way. Having a compassionate attitude towards others is what will eventually give you happiness from within.
It is also important that you are not stubborn or adamant about anything. There is a difference between being persistent and being adamant and you should be able to differentiate between both. Your willpower must be strong enough to make you achieve what you want to, but you shouldn’t position your happiness on that particular thing itself. It is important that you are flexible enough to compromise on certain things.
Staying happy is everyone’s right, but it solely depends upon people as to what exactly makes them happy. Artificial or materialistic happiness is temporary; thus you must try to achieve the real happiness of your life.
Respected Principal, Dear Fellow Teachers and My Dear Students!
We have gathered today to give farewell to the final year students of our Engineering College; post this day, you’ll get the annual leave for your final exams and then hopefully, you’ll head forward to shape your life in your respective ways. I feel extremely glad to host this function and I am going to use this platform to share today some important lessons of my life, which of course couldn’t have been taught in your curriculum.
I am sure that each one of you wants to succeed in life and wants to achieve the best for yourself. But I would like to say that always remain happy with whatever you achieve and never get disheartened or hopeless even if you face failures in life. Always remember that happiness is much more important than anything else in life. According to psychology, happiness is an emotional and mental state of well-being; the definition of happiness may vary from person to person, but the feeling remains uniform irrespective of the reason for happiness.
I have come across several people, who have every possible luxury in life, great bank balance, property, etc and yet they are unhappy. Most of us misunderstand that a successful or rich person is happy; but the fact is that success, rich, money, luxury, etc have nothing to do with happiness. In today’s world, everything else can be achieved but happiness. I would like to mention that for being happy, you must be considerate towards everyone who is lower in status or earning. Always respect others and help people if they approach you.
Also, it is important that you pursue your passion, hobby or dream along with pursuing your career; because the fulfillment of passion or hobby would certainly make you happy. Find interest in the field of arts, music, gardening, etc as these activities would surely energies you for new challenges at work.
If you are happy, you will always think positive in life even if you fail or lose someday. Success and failure are the two sides of the same coin. Don’t place your happiness on your success as success is a situation and happiness is one’s mental and emotional state. Your situation may change any day, so you should not waste thinking too much about something which is beyond your control.
There are many people who struggle due to ill health, which ultimately makes them unhappy and sad. Thus, you must live a balanced life; eat healthy food, do regular exercise, take proper rest and sleep on time. All these simple, but important steps would not only keep you fit but would also make you happy.
Happiness is everyone’s right but the way to happiness may differ from person to person. You must find your reasons for happiness yourself and move forward towards achieving them. Don’t ignore your family while you are on the path of success or career; because all these things may change someday but your family will always stay with you through thick and thin. Spend quality time with them, go out on weekends and share your happy moments with them.
Well, today is your day; so enjoy it to the fullest and always be happy.
Very good morning to all of you!
Today is 20th March 2017 and this event has been organized in our colony for the celebration of “International Happiness Day” and it was founded by United Nations adviser Jayme Illien. Happiness has many meanings like gratification, triumph, joy, amusement, etc. Everything that we do in our life is directly or indirectly connected to happiness and it can be for ourselves or for somebody else. Every creature in this world wants happiness. Everybody is afraid of getting hurt or to feel pain. There is a necessity to enjoy each and every moment in our lives. In this entire world, almost everyone is working hard to fulfill their needs and it is because of the happiness that we get from our satisfaction when our needs are fulfilled.
But there are many people in this world who are not able to fulfill their needs and are still happy because they are satisfied with what they have today and they live in the present rather than worrying about tomorrow. So, happiness becomes a choice for an individual whether he wants to link his/her happiness with his/her success or with the present. If you want to live a happy life then try to live in your present rather than ruining it by worrying about tomorrow.
In our lives, we go through many problems and complications but some people give up and some fight for their victory. We need to understand that there is not a single problem that does not have a solution but, it just needs our hard work to find that solution. There are many people in this world who do not get proper facilities like food, shelter, etc but they still try to find happiness from what they have in present. In life, there is no need to connect happiness with success because failures could come in every person’s life many times and it is also important in its place. People have their own definition of happiness. For some, it is a success but for some, it is not more than sensual pleasure. The people who run after success or want to be successful forget to live their lives in the present but the people who live in the present or live a happy life are always successful.
If we want to be happy than there are many keys to a happy life. Many people have a habit of comparing themselves with others. For example: if I have a car but I found someone who has a better car then me and here begins the unhappy feeling in my mind when I compare myself with that person and which is a bad habit. So, we should have a feeling of doing better but we should not compare our lives with somebody else’s. We all should try to convert our lives from success-oriented to happiness oriented because living a life without luxury but with happiness is far better than a life with luxury but no happiness.
On this note, I would like to conclude my speech and humbly wish that you all may get happiness in life.
Good Morning Honorable Principal, Honorable Teachers, and My Dear Students!
Today, this special assembly has been organized especially for the students as the whole world is celebrating “International Happiness Day”, we also wanted to spread a little happiness among children by a small celebration and for this, we have invited some of the homeless children so that we could do something for their happiness. But before the celebration begins, I would like to say a few words on happiness. So, what is happiness? Although it cannot be explained still, it is a feeling of well being and fortunate.
You all should feel lucky that you all have got houses to live, a school for education and many other facilities but there are many children who have not got these facilities and still, they live happily despite going through infinite difficulties. Every day I see many children with many facilities feel unlucky or think that their life is not good. This is a very inappropriate behavior for us. We should try to find happiness in everything that we have got in our lives and should feel very fortunate that we are blessed with these facilities. We feel happiness by ourselves in two ways. First, when we do anything for ourselves that makes us happy and second is when we do something for someone else that makes others happy.
In life, we should do something for others that could become a reason for their smiles. Happiness always increases when we try to share them with others. We should do something for the people who are homeless or are lacking in facilities like food etc if you will do something for them then trust me, it is going to be the best feeling when you will see a smile on their faces that will come because of you and it should not be limited to the human beings but also for the other living beings also.
The most heartbreaking thing which happens for a school and parents is when students commit suicides due to the pressure of studies and sometimes of their parents. We should understand that hard work is a key to success and success is the biggest source of happiness because if there is no pain then there will be no gain. So we should prefer happiness rather than stepping back in difficulties. We should know how to find happiness in everything. Even we can defeat our difficulties easily with a smile. So, spreading happiness among living beings is the most beautiful deed that we can do in our lives. We should never give up on the hard times because at the time when we will achieve our success it will give us happiness.
On this note, I would like to conclude my speech and extend special thanks to our honorable Principal ma’am for giving us this priceless opportunity to spread felicity among people and I am feeling very proud of being a part of such a great event.
Thank you very much and I wish you all a great day ahead!
