How Someone Finds Happiness?
Do you often feel like each day is just the same? Sometimes, it may feel like repetition. However, repeating behaviors is how we learn. Some people don’t want to try anything new, while others want to explore. I hope you can find what suits your needs best!
Working too hard means you can’t enjoy your free time because it flies by so quickly, and the only way to break out of the monotony is through intoxication. It’s a never-ending cycle of five days work, two days play.
Pleasures are temporary and this is exactly why people feel a sense of excitement. But once the event passes, life goes back to its same pattern of being meaningless. The only way left to feel this sensation again is to find another form of pleasure, which often becomes addictive.
Have you heard this hilarious joke before? Two old men sat on a bus and one of them said to the other: “Hey, are you not going to see the chickens today?” The other old man raises an eyebrow with a spark in his eye and says, “Yes, I will be going this afternoon.” The first one smirks and says, “But you didn’t bring your medicine, how can you go?”
Some people’s desires are so strong that they will even borrow money from their family and friends in order to visit brothels. This trend is especially common among addicts, who borrow money for drugs, sex, and alcohol. They’re always chasing the next high. They waste their energy, time, and money on fleeting thrills rather than working for success.
One way to find meaning and motivation in life is by experiencing the feeling of being fully alive. For some, it comes naturally, but for others, it might feel like a death sentence. That’s why we humans invented vices: things like drugs, alcohol, and porn that can provide that sense of drive and anticipation.
But happiness is within you. If you can’t get what you want, the other way to find happiness is to release the need for it. Let go and move on if something isn’t working for you. Shakyamuni Buddha once said, “all desires will lead to suffering,” because what you don’t have, you want. And I’ll ask you this: is it self-created or imposed upon you by the outside world?
It’s easy for envy and jealousy to enter our lives. We react to what other people show us, but we also generate these feelings within ourselves by longing for experiences from outsiders or by seeking oblivion in things like substance abuse.
Happiness is a balance between what you want and what you get. One way to achieve this balance is by getting those things that fulfill your needs. The other option, though less effective, would be to enjoy the things that come easily to you. This sentiment comes from Richard Layard, a professor at the London School of Economics.
Many of our desires are misplaced. When we pursue them, it feels like we’re finally getting what we want- only to find out that it’s nothing but temporary pleasures, which won’t bring you true happiness. Instead of satisfying your fleeting desires, try to discover.
Do you want to catch someone’s attention? That is a question many people ask themselves. The answer to that question is no, your body will change as you get older. A lower sex drive and less attraction from the opposite sex makes it more difficult to hook up with anyone.
The question of whether or not you need sex to be happy in your life is a tricky one. You don’t have to wait until you win the lottery or make a million dollars. Research has shown that above an annual income of $15,000, increased earnings don’t necessarily translate into increased happiness.
Those people who feel good, without resorting to vices, do one thing in common. They have a clear dream and determination that guides them throughout life. This sense of purpose is at the heart of why they do what they do; it gives them a greater sense of meaning and life.
They are guided by the knowledge that they have found their soul’s calling and live life to the fullest by fulfilling it. The active party lifestyle is different from being “party animals” and drowning in music and shaking until the sun rises. That’s not living; it’s dying.
You’ll only find true meaning and happiness in life by finding your destiny. Every one of us has a specific purpose, and it would behoove you to uncover it. A path has been made for you to walk on this journey through life. Follow it, and you are certain to arrive at paradise. Ignore it, and you continue to wander, wasting time and ultimately your life.
1. What are you made of? What are your strengths, your talents, and the things you’re good at?
2. Picture your dream in your mind. It can help you stay focused and on the right path.
3. Outline a plan for yourself that sets your goals and figures out what steps you need to take to achieve them.
4. Tell your best friends about how you got started, and commit to taking at least 5 actions every day.
When you see that your actions are creating positive results, it’s bound to make you feel excited and inspired. As a result, instead of using time, energy, and money on vices, you can invest them in creating an upward spiral of success. By releasing your focus on temporary pleasures and instead of finding gratification in the eternal joys of following your purpose and calling, you break free from the chains of monotony. In doing so, you find truth, happiness, and meaning in life.
