The secret of happiness is feeling content with the grass that you are currently on (you know the saying – “the grass is always greener”). That’s not to say that you shouldn’t push yourself to higher plateaus, or seek out greater things in life. It just means that while your reaching for these higher places, to be fulfilled, and at peace with where you currently are in life. However, not complacent, otherwise what’s to push you to that next life long goal. I believe it’s all about striking a nice balance between the two. I personally have not, nor will I most likely ever truly accomplished this myself. However, be that as it may, that’s the secret.
