Happiness is worth pursuing not just so that you experience a state of bliss but because of all the other benefits. There is a strong relationship between health, wealth, success and happiness. People often assume that success leads to happiness when in fact there is plenty of evidence that happiness can lead to success. When people are in a positive frame of mind they engage more with others, are more active, deal better with conflict, help others more and are more creative. You owe it to yourself and everyone else to be happy!
