Happiness - How Important is it?

Updated on January 29, 2015

Happiness - How Important is it?

"Are you happy with what you already have in your life at present? Can you widely proclaim that every moment of your life each day gives you happiness?"

How many times we tend to ask ourselves such questions? And, if someone else asks you, are you in a position to answer back in a moment? Nevertheless, the answers to these questions are extremely crucial to our existence, since it is now scientifically affirmed that if you are not happy at present, it will not be possible for you to be happy tomorrow, unless you change the course of your actions immediately.

How do we define Happiness?

Happiness - A state of inner pleasure, which has all its sources from within us. So, does it come to us from somewhere outside? No! It is in fact, something that we create with our existence, thoughts and actions. So many people all around the world keep on waiting for some kind of magic or miracle to happen, which could change things in order to make them happy. They continue to wait forever of their living. They only do this because, they know they have all that time, and are absolutely unaware of the power of creating happiness within them. What if you are given just one moment of life to live? Won't you choose to put in every bit of your efforts to make it happy, joyous and gifted one?

And why is happiness so substantial?

When we are in good emotions, we see life to be a rewarding adventure instead of being a purgatory to pass through. We see good, in everyone else, in all situations thereby setting examples for others as well. Make a list of all feel good factors you've ever experienced in your life. Go through that list every time you feel down. Try to get into the feeling of all those wonderful experiences, and this is where you change your present to a better and happier one.

Ensuring to be happy and joyous towards yourself may make some people feel guilty of becoming more self centered. But, this is just a myth. Studies have shown that happy people enjoy much better relationships thereby making other people's lives better too. They intend to reach more and more of their goals, and are better and healthier human beings. So, getting in charge of your happiness can be the most beautiful gift you can give to the society, your colleagues and your family.

      Interesting hub. I have a few thoughts on happiness, some of which mirror yours. I definitely agree that it's something that comes from within. I believe it's not something that's just there, it's something you've got to work at, like love. I also think that these days people have quite unreasonable ideas of what happiness is like - they expect to be filled with joy and excitement at every moment - but that's just not realistic. I think of happiness rather as a sense of contentment, being pleased with how the important things in life are going, having fun and interesting things to do and look forward to, a strong sense of self and purpose, and people to share it all with. So although I'm not bouncing around, brimming with joy, I consider myself to be happy, and life to be "right."
