What is Happiness?
3:10 What is happiness? An emotional response to an outcome. If I win, I will be happy, if I don’t, I won’t.
Happiness demands a certain outcome. It is result-reliant. If happiness is what you are after, then you will be let down frequently and will be unhappy much of your time.
Joy is something different. Joy is a constant. It is the feeling you get when you are doing what you are fashioned to do, regardless of the outcome. I enjoy watching my kids grow, even when they fail. I enjoy my work, even if it does not make me a millionaire.
