Substance in our daily lives will help to make us happy.

Substance in this context is the actual matter of a thing, as opposed to the appearance, shadow or reality. So substance is what is real or factual. And factual events in our lives can make us happy. Whenever you believe something good has happened in your life, double check that with the facts of the case to determine if substance is there and is real to make you happy.

One of the examples of the above is related to getting a job and earning an income. For example, if you applied for a job that is not real substance in your life because the objective is to earn an income – not just to apply for the job. That is just a formality and a part of the procedure/process. In addition, if attend an interview and felt it went well so you may get the job that is not substance. If you were offered the job and a starting date, then that is substance to certain extent or degree. But that can change between when the job offer was made and the starting work-date, as I have seen from others experience over the years. Starting the job in actually terms or working is the real substance and can make you happy. You have now achieved a job, for that you wanted and with an acceptable salary/pay, for example, in accounting and have actually started working. No more wondering about changes or maybe this or that may happen. Substance is now real because you have started earning money towards achieving you personal or family objectives.

For those in online business, the principle is just the same. No one just wants a Web site, from example, that is well designed, looks good and receiving hits to you site. The person who started the business site, for example, an online store or hosting service site, is looking for real paying customers or clients. So he/she will not rejoice with just hits that may even be irrelevant to his/her site offered services. They really desired shoppers, for example, who will pay for products or services or clients who will sign-up for paid hosting services. When that is achieved, then substance is factual and happiness will prevail.

If some online or off-line is in need of finding friends who will be their real friends, then those who are just clicking to sign-up as a friend but have never spoken to that person via text, phone, e-mail, and so on, will not be considered as a real. Just as a co-worker who works at the same place who never contacts his/her friend cannot be considered as a real friend because the substance or objective desired has not been achieved. Now to go see the person, offer to have lunch or after work conversation every now and then or even just to call to find out how the person is doing with offering to help if need be, will be considered as real substance and can lead to happiness as the objectives are being achieved.

Someone, such a worker who promises to do something for you such as a simple home repair, cannot be considered as substance until he service is done or even done correctly to your desire. Just being glad that he/she said they will do so, even for free, is not grounds for substance. Substance is when it is done because until that is so, stress and disappointment may very well surface and make you frustrated and unhappy. So look for the substance when the above is done and to your satisfaction.

The above are just a few examples but the principle is the same in all cases. We need to look for the substance in our lives so we will be happy. Too many people often settle for less and become frustrated, angry or stressed-out when they have not achieved what they needed or desired. They have presumed that things will be what they have not yet become and then become unhappy soon after because they have not waited for the facts to make sure substance is real and exists to ensure happiness. When the substance of the situation or case is there, then happiness will prevail – in almost every case, base on the examples and principle above.
