When you define your own happiness, life becomes easy to navigate. It is quite possible to spend one’s entire life living up to other people’s definition of happiness.
Defining our own happiness frees us from people’s expectations. It allows us to pursue the things which matter to us. It gives us an opportunity to fully exploit what we are capable of.
Achieving financial freedom requires that we define the lifestyle we choose to live. This frees us from mindlessly pursuing costly passions pushed unto us through clever marketing. If we can define our own happiness, then true wealth becomes a constant companion.
