In the era of mediocrity and success, what is happiness is a big question for a millennial generation. Bill Gates was recently asked two compelling questions on Reddit, one of which is whether he is happy and why he is happy. Bill Gates said that now 63-year-old is happier than he was 25, but he also stressed that the reason is not only wealth, but family value, sports, commitment, and dedication.
Bill Gates makes an in-depth assessment of himself every year and asks his own questions. At the end of last year, he asked three questions. I have enough time for my family, I have learned enough new things, and I am developing new ones. The friendship and deepening of the old friendship, he said that these problems were only ridiculous when he was in his 20s, and only one question at the time was whether Microsoft succeeded.
From a business point of view, Bill Gates is in the 30s with the mission of putting computers on every desk and every family, which is undoubtedly interesting. He said, “When I was in my 20s and 30s, I was very fanatical about software. I didn’t have a vacation and I was not interested in getting married.” Bill Gates said that when he was in his 30s, he did not think that he was in his 60s. Very smart or have a lot of fun. But he is totally opposite now. If he is asked 20 years later, he will say how smart the 80-year-old is.
He admits that he is happier now than he was in his 20s. As for how to achieve the realm of happiness, he said that he can achieve it without becoming a billionaire, that is, anyone can reach the same level of happiness as Bill Gates. Inc. reported that Gates’s happiness is pointing out that as people get older, people don’t just increase their knowledge or wealth to make themselves smarter. Gates believes that consciously choosing and implementing the most important thing is to follow you. The promise is the key to wisdom.
Although everyone will inevitably question their career direction or motivation, but when you know that you are busy for bigger things, these feelings will be permanently imprinted in your heart. You can ask yourself, what do I want to do, what is the most important thing for me, when you ask what you want and hear from the bottom of my heart that this is the answer I want, that keen Sound is the biggest motivation you should devote yourself to.
In addition, it is always a kind of mentality to pay. Scientists have confirmed that giving will make people happy, good for health, and evoke gratitude. The Harvard Business School report concludes that when we give our generosity to others, we will get the most emotional reward.
The third is sports. Gates itself is an avid tennis player. And exercise has been shown to improve mood and reduce feelings of depression, anxiety and stress. Finally, shifting priorities to family life, Gates said that children’s performance in life will also make him happy. But how do you balance the balance between family and career? The report suggests that as long as you have a non-negotiable bottom line in every area of your life, for example, what are family priorities, and then implementing them in your work will ultimately make you more focused and efficient at work.
Warren Buffett also expressed similar views. He said that the definition of success tells a group of students at Georgia Tech. “Basically, when you reach my age, you really have to know how many people you want to love. Love you to measure your success in life, this is the ultimate test. The trouble of love is that you can’t buy it, but the only way to get love is to be a lovely person. The more love you give, the more you get The more you have.”
