Happiness Happiness is not a universal concept. It is so because everyone understand happiness in his own way. For someone happiness is plenty of money, big houses, luxirious cars and apartments. For other ones it's the possibility to travel with a bag behind the shoulders. For someone is enough to observe a sunrise and sunset to feel happy. I can go on and on while mentioning different people’s opinions what happiness is.

I’m always sure in their ability (and desire!) to share my troubles. And, of course, I’m happy because of this fact.

So, you can have a lovely family, reliable and dedicated friends but…something is missing. And this something is your understanding of your usefulness for the world or for the people around you. Actually I’m talking about the correct choice for the future career. In my opinion, one cannot feel happy if he isn’t motivated at work. But to be motivated means,
