Don’t chase happiness. Chase your purpose and live a purpose driven life. Happiness is a byproduct. If you chase happiness as your number one value (which is sold to us as pleasure), you will always seek that high which will leave you feeling empty most of the time (and maybe broke too). Happiness comes from finding problems you love to solve and working on those problems. Finding a way to solve those problems will give you joy that fills your heart much longer than any physical pleasurable thing you do or purchase. So people ask? How do I know what my purpose is? You already know it. There are problems in your life or society that ticks you off more than most people. There’s a talent you have. Marry the two of them. For example, it really ticks me off when people waste their precious lives and end up stuck. I happen to be given the ability to convey messages in words so I spend my time reading about how people have lived and tools they use to navigate life. Then I write to share the tips I learned and inspire people to live a meaningful life and not fall into traps that leave us with no choices. What’s yours and how will you use that to solve problems?
