In my core values, I find that my value of happiness depends on my stance with my other core values, family, success and friends. If I do not have a good relationship with my family and friends then I will not be happy; if I am struggling with my goal towards success this will greatly effect my mood and how happy I can be. Also being healthy helps to improve my attitude which will help keep me happy.
My short term goals are things that need to happen so that I can eventually meet my long term goals. My goals are also greatly influenced on my experience growing up, not that it was a bad experience, just some of the things I have had to worry about, I want to make sure that my kids and family do not have to worry about it and this all depends on my success which will then help me be happy.
