As a child we all received applauses for even the smallest of act (finger painting, going to the potty etc). That applause is harder to come by as we get older. We are expected to achieve greater and greater feats with less and less errors. I believe one of the greatest keys to determine your happiness is not necessarily the money or power you receive in a position (although that is nice) but the applause you get from that work. That applause doesn’t need to be from strangers, employers, or co-workers but an inner applause that you feel from the success you achieve. Therefore find your applause meter and happiness is just around the corner.
