Success And Happiness
  • The traits that make us successful in our careers aren’t optimized for happiness.
  • Sacrificing the present for a better tomorrow, toiling hard with a single-minded focus isn’t exactly fun. Let’s face it, success and happiness are two different things.
  • Happiness is something that is only felt in the present moment, and meditation is a way to reach that mindset permanently.

Success is just one of the outcomes of the process of pursuing one’s goal.

A better way is to set goals and work towards improving our lives, but also focus on today, on the now, the present moment, and try to live life.

We generally are in an unhealthy, unhappy state of mind due to overthinking, health issues, toxic relationships or job-related problems. Then we keep wondering where to find this elusive feeling of being happy.

Before we focus on success, we need to take care of our present pain points: negative friends, bad relationships or stuff that causes stress and anxiety if we want to be happy in the now.
