There’s a lot of stuff that pisses me off, I mean pisses me off, but as soon as I let these things effect my ability to be happy, I become a weakling, a coward, a man so petty that I’ve given a large part of my meaning to an external circumstance that has created an internal emotion that is completely under my control.
Alas, it’s time to man the fuck up and once again take control of my happiness.
But always be growing, evolving, and moving forward.
Health, both of the mind and the body, are incredible aids in the quest to be happy. We’ve touched on it a bit here, but healthy, natural testosterone levels lower the risk of depression in men.
To be ambitious is to embrace the true calling of your soul. If your soul is calling you to help kids in Africa, feed the poor, and save lives, then that has to be the focus of your ambition – hello Mother Teresa, Pope Francis.
If that means you create a billion-dollar company, then that’s your ambition – hello Mr. If your soul calls you to bust your ass everyday to give your children better opportunities than you had, then, my friend, you know what you have to do – hello to my Poppa, and my Nonno.
Happiness, to me, was always something that I pursued along with my goals. I worried about whether or not I’d succeed instead of just working my ass off and allowing my hard work to bring me peace. Ambition, as we’re told growing up, is your burning desire to accomplish something great.
Find meaning in your day to day life, struggles, and worries. In fact, I love what I do if I’m being lazy or not working my ass off because I don’t see the growth that gives me confidence, I don’t experience the reward that hard work brings, I don’t feel the benefits that hard work brings to my character and personal development. What are you trying to build ( your ability to be a happy person.Hard work, no matter what the field or focus is, brings happiness. Have a checklist of things that you need to do everyday.If you tie meaning to your work, then you’ve created an atmosphere where only happiness can occur. Have some for your work, others for your own development.You use this as an excuse to do certain things, act a certain way, and make certain decisions. A coward allows outside sources to effect his happiness, his ability to be happy, and his attitude.I know a person who is – in their mind – intelligent.
