If You Want To Be Happy, Set a Goal That Commands Your Thoughts


“If you want to be happy, set a goal that commands your thoughts, liberates your energy and inspires your hopes.” – Andrew Carnegie


Being in possession of money and what money can buy delight the heart, but cannot on its own make man happy. Even if it is for mundane things, someone with excess of cash can only be happy thinking of beautiful things and the honour the money can achieve according to his own view, nothing more.


Sadness has always been associated with people who lacks a lot in life despite the popular slogan of the “rich also cry”. If that is the case, then there should be prescription for continuous and everlasting happiness. According to Orison Swett Marden “All who have accomplished great things have had a great aim; have fixed their gaze on a goal which was high, one which sometimes seemed impossible.”

Whether you have or have not, one way to retain a lot of zeal that keep you happy all the time is to set goals that keep you busy doing great things that delight your heart.  Michael Korda believes in this when he says, “One way to keep momentum going is to have constantly greater goals.” Mark Victor Hansen proclaimed “By recording your dreams and goals on paper, you set in motion the process of becoming the person you most want to be. Put your future in good hands—your own.” What else could make you endlessly happy than to become who you want to be. If that is the case, start setting andreview your goal regularly.
