Bottom line, most people just want to be happy. We may say to ourselves, when I have enough money, more fulfilling work, a better boss…then I’ll be happy. What’s crazy about these types of statements is that they are are stated in the exact opposite way that the world works. The way to happiness is to simply be happy. When we are happy then opportunities start to open up to us. You can think about it this way. Would you want to hire someone that wasn’t happy?
