Are you sabotaging your happiness?

It is way too easy to get self-destructive without even noticing.

Create some awareness and train yourself to find out whether you are indeed sabotaging your happiness and to decide how to fix that.

Seth's Blog: If your happiness is based on always getting a little more than you've got...

Then... for sure you will never be happy. Not truly.

The satisfaction of doing something good to any living being clearly overcomes the satisfaction of getting something you want for yourself.

 

Unless of course what you want for yourself is to make other living beings feel happy.

Nobody said it was easy.

Why Being a Little Selfish is Good For You

Why Being a Little Selfish is Good For You | Innovatus | Scoop.it

Selfish.

 

I've been called that numerous times. I've been lead to believe I was some kind of monster. It sunk me down and alone in the darkness.

 

And then I came to believe that these people were wrong. We need balance. And I do think they easily forgot what I did for them and still do sometimes. In the very same way, I got tired of merely accepting stuff to make them happy or do something the way they wish to make them happy. Especially when I feel something may come out wrong.

 

We need to have argumentation capabilities and care for our own ideas as well. Nobody is entirely right, so please, find something in the middle. Keep defending your point of view and perspectives with passion. It will keep you alive, give you the kick to have more and better ideas, to do more and better things for everyone.

 

(do you find this contradictory when compared to the latest post from Seth Godin I just published here? - deal with it)
