Aristotle once said, “Happiness is the meaning and purpose of life, the whole aim and end of human existence.”
You may think that happiness is those fleeting moments that you enjoy for an instant, in between running, meeting obligations and striving for a “better life.”
Therefore, you keep running on the track of the human race; thinking the faster you run the quicker you’ll get to where you want to be.
An interesting idea is that life is a game that you create everyday based on your thoughts, actions and efforts, or lack thereof. You win the game when you achieve happiness in your daily life.
With that said, you soon realize there is a choice. You can create the game as a race or as something else.
Everyone is most happy when they are creating values. One way we play as adults is by creating a business that adds value to the life of other people.
I doubt that anyone wants to race. They simply feel they must to survive. The human race is really a race for survival.
For now, stop racing for a moment. Sit down and think about the true value you offer that enhances the life of other people.
Write those ideas down. Knowing the value you create is step one.
