For many, life is about happiness and fulfillment. These are the things that make us feel as if our time has been well spent, and as a result, they motivate many of the decisions we make. To achieve happiness and fulfillment, you simply must somehow benefit mentally or physically from your actions.

If you want your life to be defined by happiness and fulfillment, then you absolutely must put yourself first! In fact, pursuing happiness in a way that contributes to society is often what generates fulfillment.

It’s perfectly fine to devote your life to making other people happy, but only if it makes you happy as well.
