Value of Amorality -

Moral certainty is the enemy of both empathy and effectiveness. It causes you to be righteously judgmental of others while simultaneously limiting your own options.

There is something despicable and damaging about self righteous superiority. When people treat right and wrong like a fact instead of their opinion and act like everyone else should care what that opinion is and follow it. Expecting the rest of the world to adhere to your values and beliefs is a good way to be very disappointed, and it's typically extremists and fanatics that believe their version of "right" is the only acceptable one. But the truth is, just because something is important to you doesn't mean that anyone else has to care. Why should they? After all, they're just as selfish as you are about their own priorities and they have things that are very important to them which might completely conflict with what you believe is "truly right and just". This is why it pays to be morally flexible.

Always remember, the more rigid you are, the more things there are that can break you. It's the most flexible and adaptable people, the people with the least rules, that are usually the happiest.

How to be Happy-

Here's 11 practical tactics for increasing your happiness, that you can use regardless of what's happening in your life. I packed a lot of information into this one, because I wanted to provide a great source for you to find a number of different techniques for happiness, all in the same place. I also tried to include a lot of the psychology behind it, so you can use that as well and understand why these things work the way they do and give you a foundation to build off of.

I'm not sure that there's any skill more worthwhile than learning to be happier. We can all really learn something from the Happy Piranha!
