Things You Think Will Make You Happy?
Common paradoxes that keep us from living our best lives. Avoid the impulses below, and you'll be primed for lifelong happiness.
-Becoming rich, powerful and famous.
-Treating God as if He were a mail-order catalog by expecting to gratify our every desire.
-Yearning for the "freedom" to achieve every last wish. This is not freedom, but being the slave of your own thoughts.
-Maliciously taking revenge on someone who has hurt you. By doing so, you become like them and poison your own mind.
-Assuming that any one thing will make you happy. Such predictions usually don't turn out to be true.
-Expecting all praise and no criticism. Without criticism, you won't progress.
-To vanquish all your enemies. Animosity never brings happiness.
-To never face adversity. Refraining from doing so will make you weak and vulnerable.
-Expending all your effort on taking care of yourself alone.
