  1. You want TV.
  2. You want night-outs.
  3. You want vacations.

You're unhappy-o.

How Peeps Get Unhappy

Simple. They do this:

  • Seek pleasure.
  • Think each pleasure brings = happiness.

You know that shiny car people get on their driveways?

  • External rewards = fleeting happiness.
  • So, they continually seek out more pleasures, thinking that next pursuit will bring them some sort of sex-ay feeling.

It doesn't.

So, they go bankrupt.

Do you look forward to weekends?

That tells you one of two things:

  1. You're seeking a pleasurable life.
  2. You're seeking a meaningful life.

The former does nothing to your long-term morale.

Seeking a meaningful life instead brings you freakish joy, passion, and life.

That's according to recent studies by a University of Michigan prof (Chris Peterson) and a McGill University prof (Veronika Huta) who studied two groups of folks who pursued eudaimonic and hedonic activities.

Everlasting happiness?

Peeps got it when they pursued "personal growth, development of their potential, achieving personal excellence, and contributing to the lives of others."

Seeking happiness?

  1. Help your clients succeed+rock.
  2. Grow a more prosperous business.
  3. Rock a @^^% life.

SHA-BAM.

Contribute. Grow. Live.
