If you want happiness for a year - inherit a fortune.
If you want happiness for a lifetime - help someone else.
- Chinese Proverb
Happiness is not a matter of good fortune or worldly possessions. It's a mental attitude. It comes from appreciating what we have, instead of being miserable about what we don't have. It's so simple - yet so hard for the human mind to comprehend.
"Success is the ability to go from one failure to another with no loss of enthusiasm."
– Sir Winston Churchill
When you watch someone who is enthusiastic, youthful, jovial, and having a good time, do you even notice how old that person is? Probably not. Most likely you just want to get to know that person and be part of the high spirits. And when you keep your attitude and behavior youthful and playful, you'll be the person others are attracted to and want to know.
