How to Find Happiness in Life

We often hear expressions like “the journey is its own reward,” yet most of us tend to live jumping from one achievement to the next. We often think that everything will be so much better when we graduate, get a job, get a raise, buy our own house, get married, pay off our car, start our own business, or retire. We talk about living for the moment, yet remain focused on the next accomplishment, purchase or life milestone.

My name is John Bardos. My wife and I gave up our business, house and possessions in Japan to search for more meaning and fulfillment in our lives. We've discovered that a satisfying life is about rich experiences, quality relationships and meaningful contribution, NOT consumption.

    So true!! Sad, . . . but, true.

  2. Thanks for posting this and reminding me: it’s all about balance. Sometimes we get so caught up in goals and meeting objectives that we forget life is a journey and not a destination.

    Great video. A true classic. Never gets old and speaks volumes in only a few minutes.
