How Happy Will You Be In 5 Years?

 

 

Hey there guys. How was your day? I hope you all are doing well. Today we will be discussing an important topic How happy will you be in 5 years? Happiness is that one thing which is missing from modern people lives. We are now much more protected than our ancestors, have food readily available and also all our basic needs are fulfilled and yet we can’t remain happy.

Much of the issue arises from the fact that we have this picture of a perfect life in our minds and if the reality differs from it even a slight bit we lose our cool and declare ourselves as the most unhappy person in the world. In my opinion we should first get rid off these happiness standards which either the social media or our friends and family have taught us intentionally or unintentionally. There are many such things which we could know when we come to know about happiness.

We also must get rid of happiness from materialistic things as soon as possible. The simple reason being that companies build the perception in our minds that their products are not for the average and only extraordinary people achieve it. The fact is that people have been living happily without their products for the past several centuries. Also, materialistic things have this novelty factor. If you don’t know about it says that we humans love new things. It keeps our brain a slight dopamine boost and we feel happy. But as the thing gets old it loses its charm in front of our eyes and it becomes the new normal.

Then again we look for something that could give us the same feeling. It is an endless loop and the only ones profiting out of it are companies. They look only for their own profits.I hope you liked my short article. If you have any insights into the topic then feel free to share it with your friends and family.

“The Seven Social Sins are:

Wealth without work.
Pleasure without conscience.
Knowledge without character.
Commerce without morality.
Science without humanity.
Worship without sacrifice.
Politics without principle.

From a sermon given by Frederick Lewis Donaldson in Westminster Abbey, London, on March 20, 1925.”

“Happiness is the consequence of personal effort. You fight for it, strive for it, insist upon it, and sometimes even travel around the world looking for it. You have to participate relentlessly in the manifestations of your own blessings. And once you have achieved a state of happiness, you must never become lax about maintaining it. You must make a mighty effort to keep swimming upward into that happiness forever, to stay afloat on top of it.”
― Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love

“Even if you cannot change all the people around you, you can change the people you choose to be around. Life is too short to waste your time on people who don’t respect, appreciate, and value you. Spend your life with people who make you smile, laugh, and feel loved.”
― Roy T. Bennett, The Light in the Heart

“When the first baby laughed for the first time, its laugh broke into a thousand pieces, and they all went skipping about, and that was the beginning of fairies.”
― J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan

“Don’t aim at success. The more you aim at it and make it a target, the more you are going to miss it. For success, like happiness, cannot be pursued; it must ensue, and it only does so as the unintended side effect of one’s personal dedication to a cause greater than oneself or as the by-product of one’s surrender to a person other than oneself. Happiness must happen, and the same holds for success: you have to let it happen by not caring about it. I want you to listen to what your conscience commands you to do and go on to carry it out to the best of your knowledge. Then you will live to see that in the long-run—in the long-run, I say!—success will follow you precisely because you had forgotten to think about it”
― Viktor E. Frankl, Man’s Search for Meaning
