The Art of Happiness: Knowing the Unknown

While defining the true meaning of happiness, in this video at Goalcast, Dan Buettner explains that about 40 percent of your happiness is dictated by genes and about 15 percent is dictated by life circumstances. However, above 50 percent of happiness is really up to us. He says, “Happiness really is a meaningless term as you cannot measure it, but you can measure life satisfaction. Every new happy friend you add to your social network increases your own happiness by about 15 percent. The takeaway is, when it comes to happiness, think about a diversified portfolio of pleasure, pride, and purpose but do not run after happiness.
