“Happiness depends on ourselves.”Aristotle
Students think and talk about happiness all of the time. Some believe happiness is something we control and that if we just do the right things we will become happy. There are others who think of happiness as a byproduct of a good environment and not something we can control. The issue of whether we control our happiness is an important one because it determines whether or not a student develops a healthy capacity for self-motivation and goal-setting.
The choices we make and the attitudes we take determine our happiness.
Other people and our environment determine our happiness.
Do we have the power to make ourselves happy?
