Today we see, how to be happy. To answer this, we need to understand where happiness comes from, and what it means to be happy.
There is a quote from Socrates that I think is very interesting: he Said “The secret of happiness is not found in seeking more, but in DEVELOPING the capacity to enjoy less.”
If you ask the average person how to be happy, I think most of them will say things like “It comes from success” or they will way “I will be happy when I get a girlfriend” Or “I will be happy when I get this car or house.” I think it’s okay to get pleasure from these things, but if your happiness comes from these things, then I think it can be very dangerous and you may not ever become happy in your life.
The first step is to ask yourself “What makes me happy?” and ruthlessly ask your self, why does this make me happy? And you need to be very honest with your self. Another quote that I love is, “Happiness is reality, minus expectations” In order for you to be happy, I think you need to enjoy the present moment of reality, happiness is being free.
Become aware of what you think makes you happy, and be honest with your self.
