To Become a Master of Happiness

I am writing this article while refraining the lyrics of the commercial song “What is happiness, what is it? by Sanma Akashiya, the most famous Japanese comedian.

That’s right. The title of this blog is “Become a Master of Happiness”. This blog’s author aims to be happy at all times.

By the way, what is your definition of happiness?

Having the humongous financial power to satisfy all your desire?
Spending your life surrounded by your loved one and close friends all the time?  
Having an enviable educational background or corporate career?
Enjoying free time every day to immerse yourself in what you love to do?
I think it depends on different people, but according to Takashi Maeno, who study the happiness as an academic subject and teaches it at Keio University, there are four common factors of happiness among people who feel happy. There seems to be
1st factor = Can do factor (self-actualization and growth)
2nd factor = Thank you factor (connection and appreciation)
3rd factor =  Everything will be fine factor (positive and optimistic)
4th factor  = Let it be factor  (independence and self being)
I personally think that pursuing happiness is to pursue what I want to do and what I like. It can be said that among the four factors of Professor Maeno, the first factor is “self-actualization and growth” and the fourth factor is “independence” are my priority of my life at this point of time. 
By the way, money, goods, and status do not appear in these four factors, but in Maeno’s research, these happiness does not last long. It seems that long-lasting happiness comes from a healthy body and heart.
In this blog, I would like to record the process of becoming a master of happiness and becoming a master of happiness by myself.
