I think the first feliciidade where Russell talks about the causes of unhappiness contains some really good stuff.
For example, he reminds the reader to …more Yes. For example, he reminds the reader to not worry about things that are outside of your control. I think it is useful to be reminded of that whenever I am worrying too much about things in my life, like when I am going to find another job.
I can’t control how quickly that happens and shouldn’t really worry about it as there is no point as I can’t do anything about it. Instead I should focus on finding appropriate jobs to apply for and to try and present myself in the best way I can on my application and relicidade the interview. It’s a useful principle to keep in mind as I find it does eliminate a lot of worry and helps me focus on things I can have an impact on.

La conquista de la felicidad
This book is not yet featured on Listopia. In adolescence, I hated life and was continually on the verge of suicide, from which, however, I was restrained by the desire to know more mathematics.
Now, on the contrary, I enjoy life; I might almost say that with every year that passes I enjoy it more. Like many people, I suspect, I find Russell an extremely agreeable person. And though he is, no doubt, several orders of magnitude cleverer than I am, I still identify very strongly with him.
Perhaps this is only wishful thinking, but the mor In adolescence, I hated life and was continually on the verge of suicide, from which, however, I was restrained by the desire to know more mathematics. Perhaps this is only wishful thinking, but the more I read Russell, the more I find that, in outlook and temperament, I am rather similar to the man—apart from his aristocratic English manners, of course. Thus it was a pleasure to read his views on what makes for a happy life, as almost everything he said resonated very strongly with me.
Here is a simple example. The difference is that the first is self-centered and more than a bit unrealistic, while in the second scenario my attention is directed outwards and I maintain a sense of perspective. Russell fills up a book by exploring this idea from a variety of angles.
What are the emotions that focus our attention inward and cause us to lose our perspective and our zest for life? Envy, greed, guilt, ruthless competitiveness, the need for approval, fear of public opinion. One of Russell’s key strategies is to take an interest in things that have no practical benefit to us. Will this ever be useful? In some places, this book shows its age. Russell speaks of women in ways that would probably get him tarred and feathered now; though, to be fair, at the time he was considered extremely progressive.
At another point, Russell partly blames the growing unhappiness of women on the decline in good domestic service. Yet these bits are easy to ignore and forgive; and much of the book still feels relevant. Russell is particularly good on envy, competitiveness, and workaholism. These three—very prevalent here in New York City—are deeply intertwined. They look in the mirror and think about the bertradn fellow on television; they receive their paycheck and think about how much their boss must make.
This has been exacerbated by social media, but is, I think, something we all must deal with, especially in bertarnd capitalistic society where, ostensibly at least, your social felicidadde is determined by your own merit. Thinking about yourself purely in relation to others leads directly to a certain amount of competitiveness; many people struggle, not to attain something they need, but simply to win a race against their peers.
This is the cause of obsessive working. In fact, I recently read a piece by someone who had spent his life in advertising—Lind Redding was his name—who detailed this very phenomenon after he was diagnosed with cancer and started looking back on his working life. After working furiously for decades, he concluded that, after all, he was only trying to make advertisements, so why on earth had he spent so many stressful hours at the office rather than at home?
This has happened to me, though on a much smaller scale, when I have been convinced that what I was working on was terribly important and that the consequences for not doing it perfectly would be disastrous—when, in reality, what I was doing was of no importance and the consequences of doing it imperfectly would be nonexistent.
To return to the book, Russell, with his usually acute mind, tackles this trouble, among others, offering friendly advice on how to avoid it and to maintain a mental balance. His style is neither flashy nor even conspicuous; he uses no tricks, no elaborate metaphors, no high-flown words. Yet every time I read Russell, I find myself filled with envy at his writing ability; I think it’s criminal that there should be someone so much better than I am. Now, how do you argue with a person like that?

One should respect public opinion insofar as is necessary to avoid starvation and keep out of prison, but anything that goes beyond this is voluntary submission to an unnecessary tyranny. Bertrand Russel, cheery scientist and one of the greatest minds and personalities of the era, explains his take on human happiness and what keeps most of us from it most of the time.
He explains this from a purely rational and non-theistic perspective, taking nothing for granted.
This is NOT a self-help book, bu One should respect public opinion insofar as is necessary to avoid starvation and keep out of prison, but anything that goes beyond this is voluntary submission to an unnecessary tyranny. This is NOT a self-help book, but rather a survey of the helpful and unhelpful aspects Russel sees in human nature and modern culture, and suggestions on how one might cope with it. It’s written by a British gentleman in the ‘s, so the language is a bit stilted, and his mention of things like the Servant Problem might fall on deaf ears to the modern reader, but this book is full of gems.
Ne varsa eskilerde var. The book is split into two halves: That said, some things are great and I am pondering them further.

In this book he applies rationality to psychology in a systematic examination of human thinking and motivations. Without denying the importance of external social forces, he concerns himself here with only those factors which lie within the power of the individual mind to change. Discussing the psychological causes of unhappiness, he concludes that preoccupation with self is the chief culprit.
The personality should be directed outward. The in Bertrand Russell was the quintessential rational man. The introvert, “with the manifold spectacle of the world spread out before him, turns away and gazes only upon the emptiness within.
Fundamental happiness depends more than anything else upon what may be called a friendly interest in persons and things. Preoccupations with sin and the “sympathy of the herd” are other causes of misery. He advises a quiet life satisfying to instinct. To Russell, personal happiness was the best hope for ending warfare and other social ills. This book is clear, concise, readable, and very quotable.

THE CONQUEST OF HAPPINESS ACCORDING BERTRAND RUSSELL | Fernando A G Alcoforado –
Los factores claves para hacer accesible la felicidad son: Pero bueno, ser feliz no se trata de tratados, sino de tratarlo. Thank you, Sir Russell, for your wisdom. Much more the passionate carpe diem approach of Horace than the placid sit down quietly and wait for happiness to alight on you approach of Nathaniel Hawthorne.
Even the title is proactive, suggestive of territory being taken in a war with an opposing force.
