How do you plan to stay happy? For most people, their plan sounds something like this: “If I can achieve more success, get married, or have kids, then I will be happy”. When we define our happiness in this manner, we cannot expect to experience it often, since it becomes something that resides on the other side of the achievement of our goals, and our goals are constantly moving targets. Once we achieve a goal, we immediately create another one, and when that is achieved, we create another.
Happiness should not be experienced only when we achieve our goals.There has to be a better alternative. Shawn Anchor emphasizes a simple truth: The happiest people are not necessarily the richest, smartest, strongest, or most talented. Rather, they have a unique perspective on life, which they use to interpret their daily experiences. Your thoughts?
