We tend to focus on happiness via outcomes and circumstances, getting things the way we want them.
But it’s much better to approach happiness as systematic instead, practicing feeling better consistently and continuously regardless of the circumstances.
Sometimes we even value specific outcomes more than feeling better. In my own search for happiness I’ve found that I tend to put so much value on finding “the answer” that I forget to feel better, and can end up struggling and striving instead.
But ironically when I practice feeling better systematically, answers just come to me anyway without any struggle.
So just practice feeling better and over time you’ll see that nothing else is as effective or consistent in finding happiness.
