Not the pursuit of happiness but of excellence through which wellbeing is achieved

Not the pursuit of happiness but of excellence through which wellbeing is achieved

Pursue happiness and it will allude you. But pursue excellence and happiness will be added to you. What is life but increasing in competence, growing through challenge, overcoming obstacles.

Indeed the life I hope to live is where there is challenge, dynamism, change and growth.

Indeed life is not comfort but painful adaptation. To not be challenged and to remove competition only invites the wasting away of the powers of man.

Shall weakness be accommodated? Or shall it be rectified?

Crutches help the hobbled man yet also hobble the man. If a person’s faculties are not well used they will atrophy.

Indeed look back at the physical capabilities of our ancestors. Their hardier life resulted in hardier bodies and more capable bodies at that.

I will not deny the hardships and brutal lifestyle of our ancestors. Yet look at what they were capable of.

Amazing isn’t it?
