To some people it sounds a little lame to talk about happiness. After all, life is about success and achievement, right? Being happy, if it happens, is simply a benefit of achievement.
Problem is, those who seek to find happiness through achievement will never achieve enough to reach the goal. For those of you who think that way, I would suggest you look at things more holistically – look at happiness, not as an emotional goal, look at it as a barometer that will let you know if you are on the right track.
