    Think back to the most recent 30 days of your life. How happy were you? Realistically, those 30 days are probably a good reflection of how happy you'll be for the rest of your life.

    I think most of us are always looking to the future as a source of happiness. But what's to say the future will be any happier than our present or past? And, assuming we achieve the goals and aspirations we set ourselves for the future, they'll always be more goals that we haven't achieved yet. What we have currently is never enough.

    On another note, I really don't think there's much difference in happiness levels between the richest, most successful person in the world versus the ugliest scrub with no friends and no life who cleans toilets for a living.

    What are your thoughts?

    In the end the richest and most successful man can be murdered by the poorest man. Through this he will be remembered. This makes me happy.

    Haha fair enough.

    Another thought I had - NOTHING will make you happy. Like, if you won the lottery and became a millionaire, fair enough you'd be ecstatic initially. But after a month it'd just be normal to you. Your happiness levels would eventually decline back to that base level.

    Well you feel comes down to three things. Happiness, security and contentment. So you may not be happy or content being rich, but you are financially secure.

    Happiness is not a product of a set of perfect circumstances, but a set of perfect ideals.

    Progress is driven by unhappiness at the status quo. If humans were always happy and content, we'd have made little progress as a species and probably still be in tribes hunting animals and wiping our asses with leaves. Almost everything you own now and use now is because people were unhappy.

    Unhappiness > Happiness
