When I hear someone say “always” or “never” my BS radar starts going off. But I am going to break that rule today.
What if Target, Nordstrom, Amazon, etc. had a product called “Everlasting Happiness”? Would you buy it? How much would you pay?
I am here to tell you the product does exist. You can buy true happiness, as long as you buy it for someone else.
I have tested it thousands of times; it “always” works and has “never” failed. Don’t believe me? Try it and see for yourself. Next time you are feeling a bit down, unexpectedly do something kind for someone else. There must be no personal gain connected to this unselfish gesture.
Then pause and check your happiness meter?
Several studies have found that giving your time, and money to others will make you deeply happy, even more happy than if you had spent it on yourself. More compelling is that your kindness will often start a kindness sequence that inspires life-long happiness and altruism with others paying it forward.
Many voices in the world will try to convince you that happiness comes to you because you get things for yourself. But it is just not true, giving is, in fact, the surest way to make you happy.
In a world where we hear me, me, me, I think we should be selfishly saying, you, You, YOU!
