This is a real quote by author and philosopher Jonathan Haidt.
“We have been led to expect a ‘good’ life, a ‘good’ marriage, and a ‘good’ job, when in fact these things are the product of the choices we make in our lives. We are in the midst of a cultural transformation.
We are in the midst of a cultural transformation. That means that you do not have to be in a good place mentally, physically, or emotionally to find the good life. As a matter of fact, it is quite possible to be in a bad place, or even a bad place where there is no good life.
The good life is the life in which there is a lot of happiness. So you can choose to be in a bad life, where you are miserable, or a good life, where you have more happiness. But the good life is not a matter of being in a good or a bad place in which you are happy. The good life is about being a person with a capacity to experience the good life. It is about being a person who can imagine a more beautiful life.
What if we were to imagine that we are in a pretty good place? It’s only been a short time, but I’ve noticed that I have a much more positive outlook on things since I started taking the time to focus more on my positive qualities. I guess I can’t say I’m making progress towards a “better” life, but I feel better about myself. I’m becoming more positive, more open, more comfortable. This is definitely a positive result.
I think for most people the positive results are about having more time to be themselves, to do the things that make them happy. For others, it’s about being able to do the things that make people happy, and seeing the world in a more positive light. We might see the world in a different light after we have been doing something positive for a while, or after doing something positive for a while.
This is not always a good thing, however. When we start working toward our goals, we start to feel a little overwhelmed, a little bored, a little burned out. This can be a good thing, but we can be distracted easily too, especially if we’re working toward something that we don’t want to do. When we do that, we can start to think that we’re not good enough, or that we’re trying too hard.
Remember that we only have so many hours in the day. We can easily lose track of what we are doing and what we want to do. For example, we could start to think that we are running out of time, that we have to be more creative or more efficient, or that we are just not getting things done. The fact is, we want to get things done. We want to be productive. We want to accomplish our goals.
When you’re trying to do something, you have to be very careful that you are not doing something that is not part of your core identity. If you are not proud of what you are doing, then you are doing something that is not part of your identity. When you don’t feel like it’s about you, you are doing something else.
I don’t know if you read our blog, but we have a whole section about it. We explain how to create your own identity, how to know what you want, what you need to be happy, what you need to be successful.
