Do not yearn for any other situation in the world besides the one you actually find yourself in.
A person who masters this skill will never be sad about his life situation. He accepts his present situation as his particular challenge in life -- even when he is unable to change it.
This attitude is usually not mastered just by reading about it. Consistently work on integrating it into your thoughts. The more you repeat this thought to yourself, the more it becomes part of your thinking.
(Avraham ben HaRambam; Hamaspik L'ovdai Hashem, p.119; Rabbi Pliskin's Gateway to Happiness, p.179)
