Happiness comes from what we do. Fulfillment comes from why we do it. (Simon Sinek, author)
Everybody wants to be happy, and we often are. But happiness seems to be transient, dependent on many other events or occasions. So, we often find ourselves dissatisfied and unfulfilled. Sinek offers a helpful explanation. Our emotions and feelings of success are more lasting when we have accomplished or experienced something of lasting value.
Pay careful attention to your own work, for then you will get the satisfaction of a job well done, and you won’t need to compare yourself to anyone else. (Galatians 6:4)
