What makes you happy?
A short film about what makes people happy.
By Vincent Van Ross
Today, we live in the computer age. It is but obvious that computers hold the key to almost everything in our lives.
But, who could have thought that computers would one day hold the keys to our happiness as well? Believe it or not,
there is reason to believe that computers hold the keys to our happiness. According to a new theory, there are three keys to happiness
and you will find all of them on the computer keyboard. All of us are familiar with these three keys. The keys are: CTRL (Control), ALT (Alternative) and DEL (Delete).
To begin with, the CPU or the Central Processing Unit of a computer is similar to that of our brain.
We owe most of our problems to our reluctance or inability to control ourselves in certain situations.
If we resolve to control our emotions—particularly anger—we could be in control of most situations. Decisions taken in a fit of anger are always disastrous.
That is the time to control ourselves and our anger. When we encounter a sticky situation, we must remember that our brain is like the computer.
There is a `Control' key in our brain just as there is one in the computer. All we need to do is to press the CTRL button when we are angry.
So and everything would be all right if we take the decisions when we are at peace and are able to think with a cool head. There are times when things get stuck.
There are times when we hit an impasse or roadblock. In such a situation, it may not be possible to push ahead on the same track.
That is the time to start looking for a detour. That is the time to find a way around the problem.
That is the time to look for an alternative route. In such situations the ALT (Alternative) key holds the solution to the problem.
At times, we are weighed down too many problems. That causes tension. When that happens, all we need to do is to identify the problems that are causing tension.
Just press the DEL key and delete the problems causing tension and we would be back on track to happiness. As I said, we live in the computer age.
If we learn to use the ALT+CTRL+DEL keys sensibly, we can chart our way to HAPPINESS!
