Link: Aristotle vs. Urban Monk Round 1: Finding Bliss. Success. Love. » Personal Development – The Urban Monk

A really simplified summary of Aristotle

Aristotle’s work in this specific area can be summarised into the following statements:

One: Each person has unique requirements for happiness and success. What makes one person successful and happy won’t necessarily work for another.

Two: Happiness comes from living a successful life. A successful life is one that is lived according to one’s virtues – a life of excellence.

Three: The standard “trappings” of success that everyone seeks, such as health and wealth, are not ends in themselves but rather objects that facilitate happiness.

Four: And perhaps most importantly, happiness and success is not a state you achieve and forget – the happiness lies in the doing, the continued living.
