28 Oct Be happy by making others happy
Lately I’ve been thinking a lot (even more than usual) about others and how I can use my skills and expertise even more to help even more people to be happy. At the same time, a number of those in our happiness community have asked whether I enjoy my job and how much satisfaction I gain from running The Happiness Institute.
The crux of the matter is that more and more I’m realising that happiness is NOT entirely an individual thing. Although much of our happiness depends on what we do for and say to ourselves, happiness and well-being more generally are also significantly associated with what we do and say to others.
The Dalai Lama has been quoted as saying “the more we care for the happiness of others, the greater our own sense of well-being becomes.”
Please let me know your thoughts.
