Happiness is so significant to us, both as individuals and as a world, mainly because happiness is all there is in life. As human beings, although we possess mental abilities and are highly thought oriented, the quality of our lives is ultimately completely determined by our emotions.
For example, which life would you rather have; that of a rich, attractive, successful, healthy, powerful person who despite all of those p[osseisons is doomed or that of a poor, unattractive, unsuccessful, unhealthy and powerless person who’s however fortunate enough to be happy?

Of what value is any good except that it enables happiness, or greater happiness, of human beings and other life on our planet?

As individuals and as civilizations, happiness is both our uppermost goal and an enormously operative means of attaining many of our other valued goals. Both as individuals and as a planet, happiness is our ultimate motive for living.
Happiness is all there is and all there ever will be; all else is only a means to happiness. If you’re interested in learning more about it, I’ve designed some comprehensive online courses.
The biggest lesson that one can from great philosophers like Aristotle and Chanakya is the sense of accomplishment, as well as the sense of fulfillment, is equally significant.
You can’t run behind your goals all the time without investing time with people you love. Developing the connection of love, being truly happy, having faith is an vital part of human life.
