Happiness is a mental or emotional state of well-being characterized by positive or pleasant emotions ranging from contentment to intense joy. - Wolfram Alpha (classic definition).

Happiness is a subjective state of joy, fulfillment, ease ad peace - Deepak Chopra.

My definition on happiness is when you are free from negative feelings and baggage. Instead you are filled with contentment, fulfillment, compassion, kindness, love, gratitude, understanding, and appreciation. In this state of mind, your body simply feels calm, peaceful, relax and warm. You may feel like singing, humming, whistling, hopping, dancing, and smiling. You feel younger. You feel happy. 

Based on my observation, there two basic ways to be happy. One is built on someone else's sorrow. The other is built on someone else's happiness. You had tough day at work and vented your frustration when you got home by kicking your dog when it failed to get out of your way in time. At that moment you released some of your negative energy, you felt better. Country waged war against another country to take revenge to feel better. 

The best way to get lasting happiness, said Deepak, is to be happy and make others happy. I find this to be true and it works for me in practically all situations. Of course in any given situation, you may not be happy. But in the long run, if you keep practicing ways that promote positives and happiness, you will eventually prevail. I call this theLaw of Attractions - Love attracts love, hate attracts hate.

A Japanese was in his history class as an exchange high school student fom Japan. His teacher was teaching history of USA. To make the class engaging, teacher decided to quiz the class on some quotes from famous people in the USA.
She is going say a famous quote, the students would answer with the name of the person who said it and when.

“I am not a crook”. she said. The class went silent. The exchange student rasied his hand. Teacher said
“Go ahead”. He said “Richard Nixon, 1973″. The teacher nodded.

She then said “Buy one. Get one free”. Again the class went silent. Once again the exchange student raised his hand,
stood up and said “Bill Clinton, 1992″. The teacher was amazed and students looked to each other and began to
wonder who was this exchange student.

As the teacher looked down to read something, a student blurted out from the back of the class, “Damned Japanese”.

The whole class turned and looked to the direction of the student. The teacher was besided herself for what had
just happened.

“Lee Iacocca, 1982″, the exchange student exclaimed.

 I think Steve was a transformational business leader, who thought outside the box. After learning about his death, I decided to find out more about Steve and share what I have learned.

In some way, he was not much different from you and me. He was raised (and adopted) by a working class couple. Growing up he was energetic, prankful, and fun-loving.

Yet, he was different. He had above average intelligence, (skipping one grade in elementary school). He showed single-child syndrome - ego-centric, a loner with few friends, and did not know how to share. In other words, his emotional quotient was rather low. It showed up in his relationships with his friends, girl friends, family, employee, co-workers, business partners, and bosses. The only exception may be his wife who was strong enough to standup to him and weather the ups and downs of his personality. He found Apple, bore a child out of wedlock, and eventually became rich and famous.

His view of the world was black and white, either you were insanely right or f***ing wrong. His emotions fluctuated between the two extremes.

The biggest difference between him and us was his passion - passion for excellence.

In the American business schools, we are taught to fulfill the needs of stakeholders - stock holders, investors, owners, employees, creditors, and suppliers - by maximizing return on investments. In reality, the CEOs are fulfilling their needs first - getting 6-8 figures salaries, huge stock options, and golden parachutes upon separation. Steve thought that was the wrong approach. He believed in creating a market based on great products and innovation. He proved that with iTunes, iMac, iPod, iPhone, iPad, and iCloud.
