Deepak Chopra tells us in this video that everybody’s ultimate goal is to be happy. So you may have a goal of driving a fancy car, or living in a dream house, but the reason behind it will be to be happy. Deepak says that people want to achieve a goal to then be happy, but it should be the other way. If you are happy you will achieve your goals, you will have a great relationship, and you will be successful and be able to buy a car or a house. So happiness comes first.

It has been proven that being happy the body produces a couple of hormones that are good for our self esteem like serotonin, or for love like dopamine and other hormone.
