The Getting of Happiness

Quick post. I got tricked again by the lure of achieving goals to get happiness.

Yes, it was another case of getting an "important" goal and then afterwards thinking "is this it?"

The brief goal attainment high quickly gave rise to dissatisfaction.

This is of course is a great reminder to keep step 1 in place - decide you want happiness more than you want the goal itself. I`ve been doing this more honestly, really making that decision, and ironically I`m on a roll and getting more and more of what I want - I`ve got the happiness first and the goal getting is happening.

Be happy first!
