Three most important points:
1. The Happiness Formula: Happiness = Setpoint (how happy you are by nature, biological) + Conditions of your life (Love and the pursuit of the right goal) + Voluntary Activities (helping others with your unique strengths )
2. Life is what you make of it, we often don’t have the control over the things that happen to us, but over our response to it we do. Adversity gives us three main advantages:1. We find hidden Abilities in us 2. We gain a changes philosophy in things. 3. Adversity is what makes our Life’s Story interesting.
3. Conclusion: “Happiness is not something you can find, you have to get the conditions right and then wait.” Some of these Conditons are within and some outward, which include meaningful work, good relationships and striving for a meaningful goal. Work on the relationships between you and these three factors and you are on your way towards real happiness.
