Rules for Happiness: something to do, someone to love, something to hope for. – Immanuel Kant

If you want to be happy you need to have purpose.

You need to have a shtick, that thing that you do that makes a difference in this world and has great meaning to you.

Your purpose.

Your calling.

Your mission.

Your service to others.

To be happy, you need to be connected.

You need to love people and be loved by people.

And even when they correct you, when they call bullshit on you, it’s ok, because you know they love you.

You know they’ll always be there for you and you’ll always be there for them.

To be happy you need something to hope for.

There’s got to be more. Always.

You need to believe in something bigger than yourself.

You need to dream, to work toward a vision for the future.

You need to have faith that it will all work together for the good, that it will come to be, maybe different or even better than you imagined, even though you may not yet have all the skills or know-how or support to make it so.
