What is Happiness in Life?

In the late spring and early summer see the start of more quests for happiness than do any other seasons It is currently of year that thousands of young men and young women leave universities and schools setting out to chart their course and sail theirs hips through life.

Many are the routes open to them the professions, commerce, manufacturing finance, farming, and a host of other ways of making a living. Their problem is to choose the one route a long which their happiness may be found. Opinions differ from age to age as to what happiness is. Popular" how to" books of the 18th century was chiefly concerned with the subject of how to die a good death; those of the 19th century moved on to the subject of how to make a good living; and those of the 20th and 21st century is devoted to telling us how to live happily.

Many people perhaps most people would say that the greatest happiness they could achieve would be freedom and ability to do what they want to do. That is not a very good description of happiness because it is difficult to be sure just what one wants today, let alone next year and twenty years from now. Human beings are changeable. What may seem the supreme material good today may be completely out of date within a few months.

What is Happiness in Life?

Happiness arises largely from the mental qualities of contentment, confidence, serenity and active good will. It includes the pain of losing as well as the pleasure of finding. It thrives best in a crowded life. The men and women who are recorded in history and biography as most happy were people with always somewhat more to do than they could possibly do.

Every waking hour of their lives was occupied with ambitious projects literature love, politics, science, friendship, IT, Doctors, commerce professions trade, their religious faith, and a thousand other matters. The secret of happiness may be found by making each of these interest count to its utmost as part of the fabric of life.

We need to avoid the extremes of sluggish placidity and feverish activity. The youths of today are not going to be satisfied with felicity which resembles that of a stone, unfeeling and unmoving, but these youths will look back from future years with sorrow and regret if they run to and fro, giving in to what Socrates called" the itch."

Happiness lies in the active exercise of a man vital powers along the lines of excellence in a life affording full scope of for their development. Happiness obviously includes two sorts of behaviors active and passive. We may say that the active part consists in searching and sharing, while the passive part is made up of security and possessions. Neither part is complete of itself and neither yields full satisfaction it is over-emphasized philosophers from the ancient have been extolling a balanced life as the happiest life, and many unhappy people can when they face the issue, trace their discontent imbalance.

The recipe for happiness cannot be given in any single word, because its many virtues must be combined in their proper quantities at the proper times, for proper purposes. Happiness, prevent physical suffering, prevent guilt, do not accept illusions, keep learning, accept your limitations, be willing to pray, and pay for everything you get, be willing and able to love, avoid secrets.

About Seeking Happiness

It is legitimate to seek happiness We cannot help observing that while followers of some schools of thought are telling us to avoid seeking happiness they intimate that if we do so we shall be happy. The searcher enquirers a plan. We need to know what sort of happiness we seek, what the ingredients are, what are our strongest wants, and what we must start with.

We should train ourselves to keep the programmed simple and free from complications and side. Most of us do not really have to seek far and wide. Happiness grows at our own fireside if we cultivate it. The romantic minds of young people are likely to imagine that happy events and happiness-bringing people will make them to entrance to the sound of drums and trumpets but when we look back from the vantage point of maturity we see that they came in quietly almost unnoticed. Human felicity is produced not so much by great pieces of good fortune that seldom happen as by little advantages that occur every day.  

Emphasis on the little things applies whatever profession or business a youth takes up. Look at the multitude of little things included management the application of science and technical skill to some material good or products. The systematic ordering of operation and the organization of teamwork and sustained cooperation.

Never are we alone with our lives. We are enmeshed in families in offices, in groups, and in obligations. We cannot be content with self-maintenance. A machine that does no more than keep itself going is of no value whatever. Contributing is essential to realization of happiness.

“The Power of Positive Thinking is the Way to Happiness”

Self-love the narcissitic stage of life is the most tragic of all fixations. It prevents our adapting ourselves to social relations. Our own conceit blinds us to the esteem and admiration we might enjoy from others. Those who are self so self centered remind us of Aesop’s fly, it sat upon the axle tree of a chariot wheel and said what a dust I raise. 

We cannot buy a ticket of happiness. It is a destination reached only as we search for a trail and follow it. Nothing good that includes happiness is ever reached without labor or won without toil. The condition of winning happiness in life, social business, profession – is the opposite of inertia and it includes little of accident. It demands directions and growth. The things which help to make up happiness, like health, wealth, honor, and successful business, entrepreneur are themselves neutral. They are good or bad according to the use made of them. If a man does not know how to use them, he is better off without them. If he fails to use them well, they wilt and die.

Keep in mind, there is no place in the world, where you can find happiness. Or search happiness for lotus-eaters, those people who cling to a static life. But it is a mistake to hurry unduly. We cannot leap to heights we were meant to climb. No artist can paint all creation on one canvas. He balances his effort in the confines of frame. The principle we live by, in business and in social life are the most part of happiness. You need to be very careful upon achieving happiness not to lose the virtues which have produced it.

The young person who is successful in his daily work should not forget prudence, moderation and kindness the qualities essential to his success. Life can be beautiful for its grace and goodness as well as for its strength and success. As for those who took their first steps out of university and school many years ago in the search of happiness. They should find comfort in the thought that happiness, though it may be menaced and buffeted by many forces is saved by hope. Everyone has or may attain the faculty of making use of what befalls. If he can say at the end of a day that it was not an empty not a lost day and that he is glad to be alive because tomorrow is coming is that perhaps happiness.
Happiness loves action, and the philosophers agree that happiness must include some form of worthy activity. Life demands work, but happiness requires, dreaming, planning, aspiring, doing and pressing on from one attainment to another still greater. The world is likely to believe in a man who believe in himself, providing shows that his self-reliance is grounded upon a true appraisal and is well managed.

No man can be great in business or a profession or an art who wants advice before he does anything important. Self-reliance is the end expression of many qualities emotional stability willingness to face facts and to bear responsibility, discipline, faith in one’s judgement and practice in making decisions and abiding by them.

We must admit that to decide or still more to revise one is the most responsible and most exacting part of the process of living. No blunder in war or politics. As life of Napoleon is so common as that which arises from missing the proper moment of exertion and his warning is quite applicable to business. The man who trains himself to make quick energetic decisions even about small matters such as writing a letter or email for keeping an engagement is contributing to his happiness by realizing his capacity as a vigorous accomplishing character.

Choose Wisely What is Happiness in Life?

Such a person, having set one idea upon its feet, spring another. He knows that for him, happiness does not abide in imitation or conformity, but arises from his ability to think and do the new things. Those succeed best in their search for happiness who form definite ideas of what they are going to do before they start to do it. Aim is necessary, and it must be specific and within the bounds of reality. Lots of people get nowhere simply because they do not know where they want to go.

What do we seek to be happy? Our decision need not be one of self enclosed finalizes, but we should plan for definite goals, each of which will be the starring place for a new effort.  Our first plan is merely the sketch of a picture still to be painted. To choose our course means more than wishing we were at its end. We must run the course. That means leaving something behind and passing scenes which invite us to linger for their enjoyment.

There is a loss and a gain in every step forward, and acceptance of this unalterable fact is involved in making our choice. But the happiness of the man who sets up a good and worthy goal and goes all our toward it is far more sublime than that of one who achieves pleasure without sacrifice. To choose the goal requires wisdom, the highest types of thinking. It silences useless discussion of insignificant things and concentrates on reaching judgement about important affairs.

Aids to Happiness

There are some things which will make our search for happiness easier. Though, it never easy and good habits, will accustom us to free our minds and hands of petty chores so that we may devote our strength of mind and body to our life job. Civilization advances by extending the number of important operations we can perform without thinking of them. The skills which we develop into habits save time and energy accustoms us to disposing of unpleasant tasks, make us exercise the virtues of punctuality and shun the vices of procrastination and generally free us to pay and un-distracted attention to matters that are very significant.

If pattern living takes over the routine tasks, freeing us from the necessity of deciding less important things afresh every day, that is a good thing, but we must not carry habit to the point where it becomes our master. The year in which a man’s habit becomes sacred and untouchable marks the beginning of his old age.

Moreover, good health is also an integral part of happiness. When your nervous system has a surplus of energy at its disposal we take pleasure in working it off and in recuperating. Absence of health, or indulgence in pleasure beyond the limit of our stored force, causes happiness. In keeping the balance so often referred to between income and outgo of energy, emotion, social feeling, and the other forces which influences our happiness we discover the virtue that resides in self-control.

Self-Control does not mean merely surface composure. Down among our nerve cells and fibers the molecules are counting every discomposure and every mental disturbance. Nothing we ever do in strict scientific literalness, wiped out. The emotions we allow to seethe under a tranquil exterior appearance leave their mark upon the record and we must make an accounting debit or credit.
To sit quietly in a room with nothing but one’s thoughts or with the companionship of someone’s with whom we are in intellectual communion, in an atmosphere or tranquility and the appreciation of vital matters. That can be happiness and the parent of more happiness.

The Emotions and Happiness

HAPPINESS has been defined by an authority as the enjoyable emotion arising from the gratification of all desires. The enjoyment of pleasure without pain. Another has said that happiness is the state in which all desires are satisfied. But these definitions have been attacked. It is held by many that a state of the absolute satisfaction of desire would not be happiness, for happiness consists largely in pleasurable anticipation and imaginings which disappear upon the realization of the desire.

It is held that complete satisfaction would be a negative state. Paley expressed a better idea when he said that any condition may be denominated 'happy' in which the amount or collective of pleasure exceeds that of pain, and the degree of happiness depends upon the quantity of this excess.

Some have held that an existing contrast between pain and pleasure (the balance being in favor of the latter) is necessary to establish happiness. Be this as it may, it is admitted by that entire one's happiness or unhappiness depends entirely upon one's emotional nature and the degree of the satisfaction thereof.

And it is generally admitted that to be happy is the great aim and object of the life of the majority of persons, if, indeed, not of every person, the happiness, of course, depending upon the quality and degree of the emotions forming the person's emotional nature. Thus it is seen that we are dependent upon the emotional side of our mental life in this as in nearly everything else making life worthwhile.

Theologians have often sought to point out that happiness is not the goal of life and living, but human nature has always insisted that happiness is the greatest end, and philosophy has generally supported it. But wisdom shows that happiness is not always dependent upon the pleasure of the moment, for the sacrifice of immediate pleasure frequently results in a much greater happiness in the future. In the same way an immediate disagreeable task often gains for us a greater satisfaction in the future.

Likewise, it is normally greater happiness to give up a personal pleasure for the happiness of others. Then it would be to enjoy the pleasure of the moment at the expense of the pain of the other. There is often a far greater pleasure resulting from an altruistic action of self-sacrifice than in the performance of the selfish, egoistic act.

But, as the subtle reasoned may insist, the result is the same the ultimate happiness and satisfaction of the self. This conclusion does not rob the altruistic act of its virtue, however, for the person who finds his greatest pleasure in giving pleasure to others is to be congratulated as is the community which shelters him.

There is no virtue in pain, suffering, sacrifice, or unhappiness for its own sake. This illusion of asceticism is vanishing from the human mind. Sacrifice on the part of the individual is valuable and valid only when it results in higher present or future happiness for the individual or someone else. There is no virtue in pain, physical or mental, except as a step to a greater good for us or others. Pain at the best is merely nature's alarm and warning of "not this way." It is also held that pain serves to bring out pleasure by contrast, and is therefore valuable in this way.

Be this as it may, no normal individual deliberately seeks ultimate pain in preference to ultimate happiness; the greatest ultimate happiness to one's self and to those he loves is the normal and natural goal of the normal person. But the concept of "those he loves," in many cases, includes the race as well as the immediate family.

Wisdom shows the individual that the greatest happiness comes to him who controls and restrains many of his feelings. Dissipation results in pain and unhappiness ultimately. The doctrine of thoughtless indulgence is un-philosophical and is contradicted by the experience of the race. Moreover, insight shows that the highest happiness comes not from the extravagance of the physical feelings alone, or to excess, but rather from the cultivation, development, and manifestation of the higher feelings the social, esthetics, and intellectual emotions.

The higher pleasures of life, literature, art, music, science, invention, constructive imagination, etc., yield a satisfaction and happiness keener and more enduring than can possibly the lower forms of feeling. But the human being must not despise any part of his emotional being. Everything has its uses, which are good; and its abuses, which are bad. Every part of one's being, mental and physical, is well to use; but no part is well used if it uses the individual instead of being itself used.

A writer has held that the end and aim of life should not be the pursuit of happiness, but rather the building of character. The clear answer is that the two are identical in spirit, for to the man who appreciates the value of character, its attainment is the greatest happiness; the wise teach that the greatest happiness comes to him who is possessed of a well-rounded, developed character. Another writer has said that "the aim of life should be self-improvement, with a due regard to the interest of others."

This is but saying that the greatest happiness to the wise man lies in this course. Anyone who is wise enough or great enough, to make these ends the aim and goal of life will find the greatest happiness there from. Arnold Bennett advances as a good working philosophy of life: Cheerfulness, kindliness, and rectitude. Can anyone doubt that this course would bring great ultimate happiness?

Happiness consists in that which contents the spirit, and the latter depends completely upon the character of the feelings and emotions entertained by one, as weighed in the balance of reason, and as passed upon by judgment and the sense of right action. The greatest degree of happiness, or at least the greatest ratio of pleasure over pain, is obtained by a careful and intelligent cultivation of the feeling side of one's being in connection with the cultivation of the intellect and the mastery of the will.

To be able to bring the capacity for enjoyment to its highest; to be able to intelligently choose that which will bring the greatest ultimate happiness in accordance with right action; and, finally, to be able to use the will in the direction of holding fast to that which is good and rejecting that which is bad this is the power of creating happiness. The feelings, the intellect, and the will here, as ever combine to manifest the result.

Finally, it must be remembered that all human happiness consists in part of the ability to bear pain to suffer. There must be the dash of Stoicism in the wise Epicurean. One must learn to pluck from pain, suffering, and unhappiness the secret drop of honey which lies at its heart, and which consists in the knowledge of the meaning and use of pain and the means whereby it may be transmuted into knowledge and experience, from which later happiness may be distilled. To profit by pain, to transmute suffering into joy, to transform present unhappiness into a future greater happiness this is the privilege of the philosopher.

The mental states and activities known as "desire" are a direct development of the feeling and emotional phase of the mind and form the motive power of the will. Desire, in fact, may be said to be composed of feeling on one side and will on the other. But the influence of the intellect or reasoning faculties has a most important part to play in the evolution of feeling into desire, and in the consequent action of the will by the presentation and weighing of conflicting desires.

Therefore, the logical place for the consideration of the activities of the intellect is at this point between emotion and will. Accordingly, we shall leave the subject of feeling and emotion for the present, to be taken up again in connection with the subject of desire, after we have considered the intellectual processes of the mind. But, as has been indicated, we shall see the presence and influence of the feelings and emotions even in the activities of the intellect.

4 Things That Sabotage Your Motivation

Motivation is a vital part of productivity. When you are motivated, you work faster, work better, and stay happier for longer. Your own habits can affect how much motivation you have. Here are four common things that can rapidly ruin your motivation.

Lack of Confidence
One of the most common ways you can damage your motivation is by not believing that you can do it. Having a negative mindset can be destructive to your motivation and your work. If you are given a task at work and automatically assume that you are going to fail, you will end up avoiding starting the job for as long as possible. If you want to maintain your motivation, you need to be able to believe in yourself.

In this world of instant gratification, one of the main reasons people give up on things is because they don’t see the results fast enough. It is hard to keep putting the same amount of effort into something when the results are immediately evident. Motivation often falls to the wayside if the results of our efforts aren’t seen in a few weeks. To keep your motivation, you have to remember to be patient.

Learn the Meaning of No
When your to-do list is a mile long, it can be easy to feel unmotivated. You need to learn how to say no to things when you don't have the time or if you don't feel comfortable doing it. Being able to say no will allow you more time to focus on those projects that you feel confident about and able to complete. To maintain a sense of control over your life, it's okay to say no to things. Feeling in control will help you feel more motivated and confident in accomplishing your goals.

Easily Distracted
Someone emails you a link to a funny cat video and the next thing you know you've spent the last several hours surfing the web and looking for random cat photos. Distractions come in many forms, but most types are harmful to your motivation. Distractions more often than not happen when you're overwhelmed, bored, or disinterested in accomplishing your tasks. To avoid sabotaging your motivation, disconnect from the Internet, avoid answering emails and phone calls for a period. This should allow you the time to complete your tasks without disrupting your motivation. The power to stay motivated remains with you. By avoiding these frequent pitfalls, you can maintain your motivation and accomplish what you set out to do.

Public Speaking Tips

We all find or can find ourselves sometimes in a position of talking to a group of people. This talk may be short or long; it may be a five-minute talk to introduce a speaker to the audience, or a thirty-minute speech on an important business matter. Whatever the length of time spent on the speech, if you are asked to give a talk you must take it as a compliment.
If you have been requested to make a speech, it means that the man making the request and many others with him believe that you are a man of ideas and experience which will be of value to the listeners. But it may be that you do not feel confident to talk to the group as effectively as you would like to. The reason, as you know, is that a good speaker always prepares his speech before he comes to the rostrum. He also knows the method and technique of giving a talk well. Here are some of Public Speaking Tips.

Preparing you’re talk

There are people who can speak effectively before a group with not any initial preparation, but this can be true of only a few lucky ones and that too on occasions when they are speaking on topics of general interest only. Speaking before a group of knowledgeable businessmen requires methodical preparation of you’re speaking. It is a folly to go unprepared before a group of such people. It is, therefore, necessary first to;

Collect and organize Material

This is the most important step towards the preparation of a good effective speech. Books from a library can be of immense help. Magazines, Newspaper, internet; and journals will add to your information. An interview with a specialist can also give you facts you want to include in you're talking, but it will a good precaution not to include any information which is not authentic and not supported by an authoritative source.
Take some notes as well; jot them down on a note paper. You can begin preparing you're talking with the facts you already know. Later you can add personal observations or experience to explain and illustrate important points and facts

Make Outlines

You must rewrite your speech in outlines. It is very useful to work. You note, arranged according to main ideas and in order of, they’re relative importance are the material for preparing your outline. Make Outlines are such important thing before public speaking. 

Hold Interest

The success of you're talking will depend largely on how much you are able to hold the interest of the audience. You must have variety in you're talking. Anecdotes, personal experiences and relevant examples add greatly to the value of a speech.
If possible you talk should also have some kind of suspense. Difficult ideas should illustrate with the help of charts and graphs. When you prepare you're talking, consider how best you may hold an interest in the audience.

Do not Read, Converse with you’re Audience

We have all listened, at one time or other, to speakers who stand before they’re audience ignoring their hearer, not even looking at them but they’re eyes glued only to they’re notes. This cannot be called a talk. It does not communicate. Such a speech may well be delivered in an empty hall. A written talk is of value when you practice your presentation.
It will enable you to fix all important points in memory. Having memorized each idea, you can use only brief notes. Many good speakers use this method. They prefer speaking from brief notes or points, not from a fully written speech. They believe that their speech will not sound well if read from a written manuscript.

Practice Hard Before Public Speaking

The only way of acquiring the skill for delivering a natural speech is by practice. As you practice, if you find yourself speaking in an affected or unnatural manner, immediately check yourself. Imagine yourself standing before your audience. Talk loudly enough for all to hear you clearly. Make slow movements, and do not use hand gestures too many times. Practice talking in front of a large mirror.
Practice hard and continue until your words flow from you naturally from idea to idea, even without the aid of your brief notes. You have prepared you're talking and it is now time to deliver it. If you keep before you the following tips, they will help you make you talk sound natural, effective, and eloquent.

Control you’re voice volume

We all know how dissatisfied the audience feels when they cannot hear what the speaker says. You should never allow this to happen to you. The easiest way of avoiding it is to ask you’re hearers at the start of you’re talk if they can hear you clearly.

Look at your Listeners

The best way of making you’re listeners feel that you are not delivering a speech but actually talking and conversing with them is to look directly at them. Never make the mistake of gluing your eyes to you’re written manuscript. Look at the middle section of the audience, then at those to the right and the left. As you continue in this way, the listeners are sure to feel that you are talking to each of them.

Objectionable Mannerisms

You may not even know if you have any objectionable mannerisms. Seek the help of you’re friends. Ask them to watch you speaking and then report. If you clear you’re throat or wet your lips frequently during you’re speech. A speaker who has even one such annoying mannerism cannot talk effectively to his listeners.
This is especially true of beginners who toy with keys, pens, pencils or they’re notes because they are nervous. By doing so, they distract the attention of they’re listeners. Don’t carry small objects with you to the rostrum. Just concentrate on you’re message; you will do well if you have made good initial preparation. 

Observe you’re Audience

Observe the look of you’re listeners while public speaking. If you see, as you are delivering you're talking, that there faces have started becoming blank. this is the signal that they are being bored by you’re speaking and that you should try to boost there interest. You may tell them, at the right moment, an interesting anecdote or a short story which may also illustrate you’re the point.

The End

At the end of Public Speaking, you need to watch your last words. It is a sign of inexperience to hurry through the last words of you’re talking as if to get rid of them. Your speech must seem well founded at the end. It is a pity, indeed, to spoil a good, well-prepared talk by a careless finish. You must not rush through your final lines. Keep up the volume of your voice and good timing till the end.
