Happiness

 

Explanations > Emotions > Happiness

 

Happiness is a general term for the positive emotion we feel and, if we want to be happier, is worth understanding more.

So what?

Learn what makes you happy. Learn what makes other people happy. Then see if you can kill two birds with one stone.

And of course also you can use the promise of happiness in any persuasion.
