Solve for Happy - Mo Gawdat - INTRO - 5 ULTIMATE TRUTHS.
Modern life is overly concerned with action and speed, but a calm awareness of the present moment will keep you happy.
In a study of over 15,000 participants, Matt Killingsworth from trackyourhappiness.org pieced together more than 650,000 reports of how people felt during certain activities and at different times. He found that it did not matter who they were, where they were or what they were doing, people were happier when they focused on the present, while those thinking of anything else were much less happy. This is the first ultimate truth we will talk about in the next blog post, so STAY TUNED!
- Every truth happens exactly as expected, even if you did not expect it at all.
- The truth gives you freedom, but first, it will make you angry.
- If nothing is certain - and that is almost always the case - choose happiness
