Many of us aren’t as happy as we wish to be,
Technological advancements have made our lives easier and comfortable.
We like higher incomes and better standards of living as a
repercussion of progression and enlargement, but happiness has
remained a rather elusive goal for many of us.
Our pursuit of material wealth and worldly possessions has robbed
us the content that we long for.

What is contentment and how can we obtain it?
“Contentment is an emotional state characterized by feelings of joy, satisfaction, happiness and fulfillment”
We as people always think that our achievements, education,
career, family and financial security can make us happy
but it’s not always the case.
We can live lavishly and wear designed clothes and drive expensive cars and yet we may be unsatisfied.
There is a misconception to think being rich can make a person happy which is wrong,as there is a saying that says money cannot buy you happiness.

As once Abraham Lincoln once said, “You are as happy as you make up your mind to be. ”
Being satisfied with who we are and what we have can make us happy, unfortunately there is no short cut to happiness.
We should first set our goals and determine the areas which are important to us.
Then start striving to achieve these goals.
That’s how we can maintain our happiness and live a great life.
