Thich Nhat Hanh on True Success





でも幸せになるのに、ナンバーワンになる必要はありません。(笑う) 私は、ナンバーワンにはなりたくないですね。














-How do you view competition in business, politics, and our personal lives?


Thich Nhat Hanh: Many of us believe that you can only be happy when you leave other people behind, when you are number one. But you don’t need to be number one to be happy. [Laughs] I don’t want to be number one. We have to reconsider our idea of happiness. Even if you are successful in making more money, you still suffer. Maybe your competitor doesn’t make as much money as you do, but they are happier. So do you choose to be happy or to have the other kind of success? To be happy is the real success. When you are happy, you don’t need to compete anymore. You compete because you are not happy. The practice of meditation can help you suffer less and be happy.
