Humans work hard every day to reach their goals.
Sometimes we think if we work and work and work, we’ll get to this ultimate point in our lives. The high point of true happiness…
“I’ll be happy when I’m rich…”
“I’ll be happy when I’m retired…”
“When I finally have freedom, I’ll be happy…”
But, It Doesn’t Work This Way…
We will never get to this point of completion. Because the reality is, we are always growing. Always changing. Always reaching towards new goals.
There is no point waiting for happiness to reach this point.
This point will never come…
Learn To See Happiness In Growth.
It really is a simple equation to happiness.
Happiness = Growth
There is no happiness in stagnancy.
In fact, I’d say the equation would look something like this…
Stagnancy = Madness.
Because when we are stagnant… when we remain the same… When we are waiting to reach a certain point in our lives that will never come, we become depressed. The opposite of happiness.
This is true madness.
“Happiness is neither this thing nor that…. It is simply growth. We are happy when we are growing.”-William Butler Yeats
We Are Happy When We Are Growing.
When we stretch our minds and learn new things. When we open our minds to different viewpoints and challenge our existing beliefs.
When we continuously set new goals and when we are accepting of the fact that we will ALWAYS be setting goals.
That we will ALWAYS be growing…
Be Happy Now.
Happiness is a choice.
You can choose to see it as something you attain, or you can choose to see it as something you experience everyday.
That you experience while you Grow. Learn. Change.
Remember, you will never reach a point of completion. You will never reach ultimate happiness.
But, you can choose to see it in the growth of each day.
