Pleasure vs Happiness

Posted on: June 3, 2008

Pleasure vs. Happiness

Pleasure is great-but it doesn’t last. Pleasure comes from your five senses. From a great meal, a nice glass of wine and a new car. Nothing wrong with these things-they make the experience of life better. But they are fleeting.

Happiness, well, that’s a different story. Happiness is the DNA of pleasure. My point is simply this: Pleasure comes from something on the outside. Happiness comes from within. It’s a state you create by choice. It’s a decision. It’s an act of will.

People can be happy when they are going through great pain and adversity. There is no pleasure evident in their external lives and yet they are content on the inside. And, conversely, tons of people are surrounded by pleasure (fast cars, nice homes, great clothes) but there is no joy within. So choose to be happy. You can’t control life on the outside. Hard stuff will happen. But you can control what goes on inside. And those who do become great.
