Why does success come in between friends? If you have not found that inner joy and made peace with yourself come what may, no matter how much you have, you will always misunderstand people whenever their opinions differ from yours. You will always be a slave to your negative imaginations of the dark mind. You will always be suspicious.
Listen friend, you need to go for the inner joy, the inner peace, the inner vision first. Make peace with yourself. Become that person whose heart has been overtaken by Joy, I mean joy, even in the midst of challenges, and then all of the outer things will become just "a tool".
