The trick is to let the laughter outweigh the tears...isn't that indeed a neat trick? But then, when we are in one of those off-moods, what happens is quite the opposite-the tears outweigh the laughter. Stop looking at others, stop comparing yourself to others, stop thinking of what others will say. What's important is you! Once you conquer your sorrow(s) and convert them to gladness, the other people follow suit, imitating your happy mood, don't they not?

I never really differentiated between these two, in the past. But yes- when I think over it seriously, it's true. Just being interested in doing something is not really a commitment- it's like' If I can do it, fine. If I don't, I still don't lose anything. So that's also fine'
Commitment is,well, commitment- from start to finish, you see the task through! No two thoughts about it. So, let's change over totally from interest to commitment, right?

Simplicity personified. We often put all our eggs in one basket, and when that basket gets crushed, we're shattered. We don't know what to do,which direction to go. And, the future seems totally bleak. So,why not have a number of hopes and aspirations?And, going a step further-why not have different alternatives to each hope,each aspiration-so that, if one doesn't work out, the other will?Or, the next one...
Simplest example-students feeling disheartened if they get less marks than expected in Board exams.
