Your Attitude - Your Self-Esteem
Chapter 5 What is Happiness?
“People are just about as happy as they make up their minds to be.” Abraham
What is happiness?
Happiness is setting a goal and working toward that goal and reaching that goal.
Once the goal is reached, you have a momentary win, and that is huge happiness,
however, if you don’t set another goal, then you have nothing to keep you in that
state of happiness for very long.
Your goals can be many small ones, or one large one, but once reached, then
your happy state will not continue. Mankind does not live on only one
accomplishment in life. Set goals; work toward goals; reach goals. Life is good!
Another part of being truly happy is Ethics.
Are Your Ethics In?
When you live by rules that can influence others, and those rules are of high
quality, then that is the first step toward your own happiness.
One main and universal rule is "Do unto others, as you would like them to do
unto you." It was mentioned earlier in this book, on the subject of friendship.
Now it is back again. Only, this time it is being used for the values of life.
