Here are some new alterations I have done for my working hypothesis for Happiness concentrating on including the new Courage factor to deal with Fear. I have previously written out a hypothesis on achieving Happiness in an article called "The 4 Factors of Happiness". I have changed some old ways of explanations in some parts. I have also included the way to achieve long term Happiness. Any comment and suggestion is welcomed.
explained before, I perceive concepts in mental models that would
easily lose some meaning upon translation into the written language.
Their structures can also be easily changed drastically with the input
of additional information that would then require totally new
translations for up-to-date accuracy. I could have chosen not to write
them out since the original intact information are already in my head
for my own benefit but I choose to do so for the sake of others. So the
things I have written in my group updates or anywhere else — people
reading them can choose to take it or leave it.
To feel short term feelings of happiness
- one must already have ability to feel harmony/peace to maintain balance and focus
one must have some liberation such as those of
money/skills/influence/connection to be confident that one can change
things and resolve restrictions to gain liberation
- one must have intense curiosity that would lure one to resolve certain restrictions
one must have true kind of courage to effectively resolve restrictions
and fears leading to liberation that is the feelings of happiness
To feel sustainable feelings of happiness
one must hold on to long term hopes of a happy future that would
constantly bias one to perceive positivity/harmony in life. Such hopes
can bias one to desire to increase one's existing liberation to prepare
oneself to experience the future happiness that comes with a higher
level of harmony
