Life, Liberty, And The Pursuit Of Happiness
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

The phrase Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness was first coined by the founding fathers of the United States. It arose from the dominance and persecution of the king of England at that time which prompted several men to get together and generate several ideas and documents that essentially broke America from the then tyranny of the British. You may have heard of these documents: Declaration of Independence, The Constitution, and the Bill Rights which gave the individual freedoms to do and pursue goals and ideas that weren’t possible before!

When you read these documents several thoughts and ideas of what they were talking about cross your mind. Progressing 220+ years later these meanings have changed both for the good and the bad. It depends how you look at yourself, how you were brought up and what you were taught in school. Another source of how you see things is from the media or outside sources. Now I’m not saying that what you believe, do, or say is good or bad. That’s for you to decide given the teaching and facts you encounter in life.

What do Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness mean to you without the hurting or infringement on other people’s point of view? Let’s face it, what you believe, say, or do, may offend or encourage someone else. That is by no means a call for reasons to complain about that other person or people. They are entitled to believe that their POV is correct. You have enough problems dealing with your own life and getting that in order!

What dreams and goals do you have? This is the question I ask of you. You’re probably saying to yourself ‘Here we go! Talking about dreams and goals! I’ve set them all my life and they just don’t work!’ Well, I’m here to prove you wrong and I mean this in the atmosphere that I want your dreams and goals to come true. What they are is up to you and what kind of effort do you want to pursue them? You have got to persevere and continue on to the success of your dreams and goals so that nothing will get in your way!

What area of your life is in need of ‘tweaking’? Is it your health? Do you need more money? Do you feel hopeless and without direction? Do you hate your job? Do you have a job? Do you wish to have more friends or the right kind of friends? Do you want more peace and joy in your life? The list goes on and on! You pick the area of your concern. It will be my job (and I might say a joyous one) to give you ideas and resouces and may help you. It will be up to you to pursue those that give you hope and a possible future of life, liberty, and happiness. These could be from quoting wisdom of famous and not-so-famous sources to a link that would show you ways of bettering yourself and those around you.

My goal is to guide you to becoming the best you possible. If what I talk about and show you helps, I have been blessed. Yes, the goal is not only to better your physical world, but your emotional, mental, and spiritual world, wherever that takes you! It’s up to you to determine what your concept of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness means to you! How about peace of mind, joy, inner peace, prosperity in different areas, all kinds of opportunities? The list goes on and on!

Let’s ride the roller coaster of success (whatever that is to you) together, and meet on the road to achievement and fulfillment both for you and the people we meet along the way! Until next time!
