I believe happiness is an illusion. We seek happiness, but when we get it, it doesn’t last for long. We think we will be happy when we get that car, baby, or house. We often think that food, money, or spending will make us happy. Once we get it, we are still not happy and want something else. This is the human condition. Most of us will go through this.
Are you stuck and not moving forward in your life? Don’t continue this way, wasting your precious time. Come join us on this journey.
