Humanity seems to have searched for happiness since the beginning of time.
This search for happiness appears to be far from over. In fact, happiness seems harder to find now than ever before.
Self-help books on emotions and happiness are being published at an ever-increasing rate. Clinical (major) depression is on the rise in all age groups and in virtually every community. Life coaching on wellbeing and happiness are becoming more common by the day and the media generally portrays a society filled with misery and unhappiness.
Can happiness really be that difficult to find, or are we simply looking in the wrong places for happiness?
The answer is a lot simpler. We’ve been trying to answer the wrong questions all along.
We don’t have to search for happiness to have it. We merely have to understand how happiness works.
Like anything else in life, things become easier once we understand how it works.
Doing maths for example is only difficult for as long as we don’t understand how it works. Happiness works on the same principle. Being happy, or being happy more often becomes easy once we understand how happiness works.
