Happiness is more like a place you occupy than an object you obtain. Some days you’ll be there and some days you wont, but the more time you spend thinking about being happy, the less likely you are to spend time being so.
People bounce from goal to goal because they’re looking for something (or someone) to take away all their suffering. Knowing yourself and what you truly want can help you develop purpose and focus, so that you don’t even have time to waste pondering happiness.
It’s okay to feel content with our lives simply because we have an inherent sense of self-worth. Reaching our goals can obviously bolster this feeling and give us a deep sense of accomplishment, but the absence of achievement should not mean the absence of happiness.
