Your happiness and victory in life hinge on whether you can grasp, while you are still young, the fact that happiness lies within.
That’s why there is no need for you to compare yourselves to others but instead strive powerfully and cheerfully to develop your state of life, aiming to improve yourselves each day.
From that struggle will bloom noble flowers of mission, flowers of happiness that are yours and yours alone. Shine as you are, live true to yourselves, and advance in your own unique way.
~ Daisaku Ikeda
