What is your view on HAPPINESS? What makes you happy? Do you think happiness comes from within, or is controlled by external factors and happenings?
On this article we will briefly examine what happiness, cueing from insights from my Mentor – Jim Rohn.
Happiness embraces the universal quest. It’s a joy that usually accompanies positive activity.
Like wealth, however, it, too, has a variety of often contradictory meanings. It’s both the joy of discovery and the joy of knowing. It often accompanies those who are fully aware of the colours, sounds, and harmony of life.
And it’s the joy that comes to those who painstakingly design their lives and then live them with artistry.
Happiness is the skill of reacting to the offerings of life by perception and by enjoyment.
It’s achieved by both giving and receiving, reaping and bestowing. It’s being able to feast on harmony as well as food, on ideas as well as bread.
Happiness comes to those who deliberately expand their horizons and experiences.
It resides in the houses of those who have the ability to handle disappointment without losing their sense of well-being. It belongs to those who are in control of both their circumstances and their emotions.
Happiness is also the freedom from the negative children of fear such as worry, low self-esteem, envy, greed, resentment, prejudice, and hatred.
Those who experience happiness often have a grasp on and an awareness of the tremendously positive power of life and love.
But happiness is more than a general feeling. It is also a method of thinking that organizes feelings, activities, and life-style. In other words, it’s a way of interpreting the world and its events.
Happiness is having values in balance. It’s contentment with daily tasks, including those unpleasant chores from which few of us are free.
Happiness is a life well-lived and filled with people of substance. It’s a wide variety of experiences and memories that become priceless forms of currency to spend and to invest.
Happiness is activity with purpose. It’s love in practice. It’s both a grasp of the obvious and an awe of the mysterious.
Yet most of us think of happiness as something either lost in the past or a peak to be arrived at in some distant future (I’ll be happy as soon as . . .). Few understand that happiness can only be experienced in the now. And, yes, like all good things, happiness is often elusive. But I promise you that it is not impossible to capture.
So how does one latch onto the bluebird of happiness? Curiously, by understanding and applying a concept which is rarely associated with happiness . . . discipline.
Again, let us recap on all the questions:
- What is your view on HAPPINESS?
- What makes you happy?
- Do you think happiness comes from within, or is controlled by external factors and happenings?
