The Path to True Happiness

“My life has no purpose, no direction, no aim, no meaning, and yet I’m happy. I can’t figure it out. What am I doing right?” – Charles Schultz

Charles Schultz, an American cartoonist, was best known for the comic strip Peanuts.

In that quote, Schultz was not really asking a question. He was, in tongue and cheek fashion, revealing the true secret to happiness.

And what is the secret?

It is really two things:

  1. Making a living doing something you are passionate about and
  2. Making a living doing something in which you have an innate talent.

Passion and Innate Talent = Fulfillment.

Fulfillment = Long-Term Happiness

When you spend your life earning a living doing something you are passionate about and posses a talent for, you will live a fulfilled, happy life.

That is the true secret to happiness.

  1. Really good point. I listen to people who hate their jobs and are afraid to make changes. I can see now where a person can spend their whole lives miserable then die having never had a fulfilling moment their entire lives. That’s scary.
