I am determined to be cheerful and happy in whatever situation I may find myself. For I have learned that the greater part of our misery or unhappiness is determined not by our circumstance but by our disposition.
– Martha Washington
Every one of us is searching for this most important thing, happiness. But don’t we sometimes confuse it with pleasure? What is the secret of well-being? Is it partly or entirely dependent on how much amount we can spend on stuffs? The feeling of well-being is not a scarce thing. But I wonder if all forms of satisfaction are genuine and permanent. Can you buy happiness? What is the true nature of human longing for happiness.
In this discussion we will reveal much about happiness just by digging deeper inside ourselves. How much, do you think, your happiness depends on your wealth? If you think there may be some other way to find happiness in life please share with us your secret.
God bless you all

Based on her research, Lyubomirsky has concluded that roughly 50 percent of happiness is determined by our genes and 10 percent by our life circumstance, but 40 percent depends on our daily activities. Here are some of the practices Lyubomirsky and other researchers have identified as ways to boost your happiness.
In addition to making us feel good, studies have found that happiness actually improves other aspects of our lives. Here is an overview of some of the good stuff that research has linked to happiness.
There’s no doubt that happiness is the result of achievement. Winning a championship, landing a better job, finding someone you love — these things will bring joy and contentment to your life. But so often, we wrongly assume that this means happiness always follows success.
How often have you thought, “If I just get ___, then I’ll be set.”
Or, “Once I achieve ___, I’ll be satisfied.”
I know I’m guilty of putting off happiness until I achieve some arbitrary goal. But as Fredrickson’s “broaden and build” theory proves, happiness is essential to building the skills that allow for success.
In other words, happiness is both the precursor to success and the result of it.
In fact, researchers have often noticed a compounding effect or an “upward spiral” that occurs with happy people. They are happy, so they develop new skills, those skills lead to new success, which results in more happiness, and the process repeats itself.
