There are two ways of being happy– either diminish your wants or expand your means.
It’s our natural instinct to want to be happy. But remember, happiness is not merely a destination, but a path we take through the journey of life. No one else can make you happy. Only you can do that.
A famous saying…though I have no idea who said it…Action may not always bring happiness but there is no happiness without action.
Make yourself happy first, your family second.
If you want happiness for an hour, take a nap.
If you want happiness for a day, go on picnic.
If you want happiness for a week, go on a vacation.
If you want happiness for month, get married.
If you want happiness for a year, inherit wealth.
If you want, happiness for lifetime learn to love what you do for living.
Feel free to substitute in whatever makes you happy, but the point is what you do for work and how happy you are doing it has a huge impact on your overall level of happiness…and health.
Notice though…that it says “learn to love what you do for a living.” you may not start out loving it or be able to choose to work at something you love, but try to learn to love what you do as much as you can.
How have you learned to love your job? Or do you hate it…
