The Happiest People I Know Have Seven Things in Common:
They realize thinking about and serving only themselves will only leave them alone in the end. They know commitment isn’t a curse, instead embracing our appropriate responsibilities is the way towards meaning. (including a responsibility to our neighbor / community / humanity). They prioritize their emotional health by receiving their limits and asking for help. They believe in larger life philosophy that both motivates with purpose (i.e. goals, convictions) and brings humility by seeing one’s own short comings ( i.e. not consistent with own beliefs).
