Achievements = happiness ?

Most friends and colleagues around me are not happy – they think they are either under-achievers, or they think they deserve more because they “achieve” lots of thing every single day already.

I reckon it really depends on your definition of achievements. For example, right after a heart operation, the achievements to any patient are actually :

  • you can drink again
  • eat your first bowl of porridge
  • have your first full meal
  • get out of the bed & walk around
  • go to the loo by yourself
  • etc etc …

You see, something a healthy person achieves every day, is a BIG achievement to a patient.

Wannabe a happier person ? Redefine your achievement …
