There are many who think the way to achieve satisfaction in life is by going after pleasure. They think that more and more pleasure will put more contentment in their lives. Sorry, it doesn’t work that way. There’s a huge difference between deep, enduring satisfaction and fleeting pleasure—between passion and a good time. At a gut level you already know this. The pursuit of pleasure for its own sake leads to misery. It’s also not easy to always remain at a high level of satisfaction and contentment with an effervescent passion for life. There are plenty of setbacks. Even at times, huge fists of adversity may pound us in the face.These setbacks and adversity often reveal to us the great lessons of life, if we will but learn from them.
