People always ask the question “How are you today?” and the response always given out is the generic “good.” Unlike asking the question “How have you been feeling lately?” as to say are you happy, are you enjoying life. To be happy is to feel or show pleasure or contentment in one 's life. Nobody absolutely knows the authentic meaning of happiness, many people have tried to figure it out but not obtain an accurate finding for it. Happiness can not be achieved if other emotions such as anger, sadness, fear, nervousness, etc. are not being utilized.
There are few things in the world that can make one as happy as the feeling of pride in their work. It doesn’t matter where you come from, how you were raised, or what you have done in your life, if you take pride in what you work on, you will be content. “I have no love for myself as a human being, but I have immense pride in the music I make.” Steven Patrick Morrissey portrays his thoughts on pride in this quote, emphasizing that who you are as a person and pride are independent of each other. Some cultures believe that being prideful is a sin, and that being humble is a pure way of living, but doing this leads to a life that you may never feel fulfilled. Pride is completely subjective, and it’s important to distinguish the difference between feeling pride, and being prideful, which makes all the difference in how you feel in life.When one feels pride, it may not be over something that they physically did, but taking pride in the work they did to develop their life.
In Brave New World, Aldous Huxley depicts how people sacrifice their relationships, specifically family, in order to having the feeling of happiness. The people only have a temporary, self-centered, kind of happiness instead of true joy or strong emotions. They do not realize how much they are missing out, because they have never been around anything different; they are only told of the horrors of strong emotions or attachments and they are conditioned to think everyone is happy. Today 's society is similar in the way that people are focused on the here and now, feelings, what makes you feel right, what you want. Though everyone is conditioned to some extent, you can be glad that you experience love, real joy, pain, or suffering, real emotions, not just temporary ones.
If being happier meant being grateful, then I had to adjust my day-to-day behavior. Essentially, I was most appalled and interested by Dr. Khorram’s approach towards incorporating gratitude into his daily life. These daily practices didn’t require a huge amount of change, but only a few minutes of his day. All I had to do was start small, listing down, whether physically or mentally, all the people and things I was grateful for. It was through these daily exercises where I realized I had to stop trying to chase for things unattainable.
Many times, introverts, such as myself love socializing with others; we forget one of the most significant non-verbal communication skills, listening. Being a good listener can tremendously improve the way you communicate with your friends, family, peers, and co-workers. Being an attentive listener, does not necessarily mean making eye contact; it is a communication process that helps us process and interpret a message.

Rather, he transforms himself into an actual sharer of happiness and source of it. He should also try to do good things without asking for anything in return. Simple things like trying to encourage someone who is obviously down or helping an elderly cross the street can all go a long way.
