Pursue Purpose, Not Happiness
The pursuit of happiness is misguided
I see so many conversations about happiness ― what it is and how to achieve it.
The pursuit of happiness is even built into the founding documents of the United States.
But happiness isn't guaranteed. Nor is it likely to appear if you’re hellbent on pursuing it.
The secret, I think, is to live a life of value and virtue. To connect with your true self and to connect that with others.
In doing so, happiness will find you, not the other way around.
“The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.” ― Ralph Waldo Emerson
