Focus on "HOW" not "WHY" ...

Let's just ignore 'why' people cannot live happily .Care more about 'how' we can change it .

You are chasing something random that you believe makes you happy like:

  • You buy something,
  • You hook up with people,
  • You go on holiday,

But these random things can give you temporary happiness , and people run throughout their lives catching these temporary happiness.

And due to these temporary happiness many people can't live their lifes to the fullest .

Four schools of ancient Greek philosophy

Ancient Greek philosophy consists of four schools, who each proclaim that they hold the secret to a happy and fulfilled life. These schools are Stoicism, Cynicism, Skepticism, and Epicureanism.

Stoicism forms the foundation of cognitive-behavioural therapy. Scepticism and Cynicism have become diluted. Epicureanism has a modern and easy to follow "Four-Part Remedy" to life.
