The purpose of this blog is to pursue happiness together. My aim is to share my thoughts, thoughts which i have accumulated through the experience of highs and lows in my own life, and thoughts from famous philosophers, thinkers, and humanity at large. My hope is that we can begin a dialogue, and that through discussion of what happiness is, and how we find it, that we can learn to be happy together and to help make the world a better place.

Happiness Thought for the Day: August 30, 2021


 


"Success without fulfillment is the ultimate failure." - Tony Robbins. 

I heard this while listening to one of Tony Robbins's motivational speeches on youtube. He went on to elaborate that often times when we fail we realize our discontentment and can use our experience to learn. The ultimate failure however, is to get exactly what you wanted, or thought you wanted, and to still be miserable. 

Goal's require sacrifice, and sacrifice often means the delay of happiness for a future state. Before making that sacrifice, make sure that what you are chasing will bring you fulfillment. This is perhaps the most acceptable time for when one is wise to delay happiness and gratification - for the bringing of fulfillment. But if your goals do not bring fulfillment, they are not worth pursuing.
