Happiness Do’s and Don’ts

Happiness can be elusive but perhaps many of us are looking in the wrong directions. In a recent article in Inc. magazine, Chris Dessi, the CEO of Silverback Social, shared some of his thoughts on happiness. In particular he shared some ways in which we might be seeking for happiness in the wrong direction. The main points of his article are summarized below:
  1. Stop seeking a life of leisure – True happiness comes from doing. Creating. Living. Contributing.
  2. Stop seeking status – Titles mean nothing. Ignore status and you will be happy.
  3. Stop seeking possessions – Focus on outward things like bringing value to others.
  4. Stop seeking financial security – Focus on how you can make others’ lives better.
  5. Stop seeking worldly power – View all relationships as an opportunity to give to the world.
