What You Will Discover In This Episode:

  • Happiness is an everyday practice and not a short-term goal
  • How you should focus on yourself and what makes you happy
  • There’s a so-called term called “dark side happiness” which crushes down true happiness
  • Happiness is 50% genetic, 10% environment and 40% skill based activity


“Happiness is not a short term goal. Happiness is a practice every single day; there is no end point, no destination that you’re going to arrive at.”

“What happens is, there’s this psychological concept called hedonic adaptation and what that teaches us is that we as humans, we’re adaptive creatures, so things that we think matter. They don’t have as big of an impact on us as we might think because we live it every single day. It’s like if you grow up next to a train track, you don’t hear the train going by anymore.”

“Happiness is a learned behavior. It’s a practice that every single one of us can do. So no matter what you were born with, no matter where you live, you have this huge capacity to impact your happiness.”

“Happiness isn’t a destination. Happiness is a practice, and it’s different every single day.”

“It doesn’t matter what religion or belief system it comes from. But taking the time to connect in and to connect to a higher source or yourself is very important. And generally, people that do those types of practices are happier than anyone else.”
