Be Content and Happy with Where You Are

by seo on October 19, 2009

Career Mission’s Chief Executive Officer, A. Harrison Barnes discussed the importance of feeling happiness, contentment, and pride about who you are.

Most people in the world are unhappy, dissatisfied, and almost never proud of who they are, where they are, and what they have. Practically every person that you see around you is luckier, happier, wealthier, and has a much better life than you do. Very seldom do you feel that you are the luckiest and the happiest. This happens mostly because you spend the majority of your time worrying and feeling bad about what you have. You need to understand and recognize the good factors in your life and focus on all the good things that you have which others don’t. You need to live for yourself and not for others. Every time you try and fit into the slot that has been created by others, you lose out on the real you. You ignore yourself and make efforts to become what is expected of you.

Only when you learn to live with contentment and without basing your happiness on the expectations and judgments of others, can you really be happy. Avoid feeling as if you should be someone or somewhere else, or that you should have a different life, and that you need to be another person and have another job. This way of thinking will not in any way make you feel satisfied about who you are. Harrison believes that you should value yourself and your life and should simply choose to live according to your own expectations of what you want to be and who you want to be, and not what others expect you to be.
