What should be the most important premise on which a life should be based?
I feel there are the following two things:

One is a vision - a purpose to live for. Clinging onto a hope gives us a direction to go towards, and makes us sail easily. In the words of the philosopher Fredrick Nitzche “He who has a why can cope up with any how”. I strongly believe in this thing. Rhonda Byrne (author of the best-seller ‘The Secret’) also stresses on the same point, although she as assigned a different term for this- she calls this the Law of Attraction. She says that if you aspire for something and cling to a hope, it comes true primarily because of the positive energy. But here I mean one must have a reason to live, a clearly defined ‘WHY’.

The other one I feel is a positive frame of mind. If one is depressed or is a pessimist he will definitely be in a constant search for a shoulder to cry upon and such a mental state of people can be used to some unscrupulous advantage by others. A fearful mind is vulnerable to problems. On the other side, a positive and open mind is receptive to new ideas and can handle new situations easily.

Well, I don’t wish to be didactic but these are just my random thoughts.
