Tired of Life?: LIFE CHANGING CHOICES AND HABITS THAT SCHOOLS SHOULD HAVE TAUGHT US TO BE HAPPY AND SUCCESSFUL
Do you want to be happy and successful?
Think back to a time when you were truly happy; that one moment of pure bliss when your heart was full and everything was right. For many people, it might mean thinking back to their childhood or a former love. The point is we have all experienced happiness at some point in our lives. However, somewhere along the way, we get lost in daily life; we forget what happiness is.
Mary had a wonderful life. She got an excellent job right out of college, met a great guy got married, and had three wonderful kids. However, despite having all this, Mary still felt empty and alone. Dylan was always a hard worker; he was employee of the month most of the year. His boss loved him; however, his girlfriend left him because he never seemed to have time for her. The sad thing about it is he worked so hard because he wanted to provide a good life for her. He even wanted to propose. Now, after a long day, he goes home to an empty house and a microwave dinner.
You might not be like Mary or Dylan, but something is keeping you from being happy. It could be because you hate your job, but you are too afraid to quit, or your relationship is crumbling, but you are still holding on even though you're both miserable. Whatever the reason is, you are not happy. Today, happiness has become so elusive because we look to external factors to make us happy. And like so many other unhappy people out there, your search for happiness has been fruitless.
True, long-lasting happiness comes from within; the Buddha said, so even Aristotle agrees. It is a combination of factors; however, the most important determinant of your happiness is you. According to studies, 50 percent of your happiness is dependent on your genetics, 40 percent on intentional activities, and 10 percent on external factors such as money, friends, or likes. This means you have a lot more control over your happiness than you thought, nearly 90 percent.
To be truly happy, take a deep look within and ask yourself a couple of hard questions. Do you need all those material things you have? Are all your social media followers making you happy? Is that relationship you are in making you happy? Attaining happiness is a personal journey; it requires a lot of hard work, which only you can do.
