How so? The pursuit of happiness is not a difficult concept, yet it's frequently misunderstood. It's a natural right bestowed to each individual. It's not to be determined by anyone else, and it's not a guarantee.
The Founding Fathers included the pursuit of happiness — alongside life and liberty — in the Declaration of Independence because they wanted to ensure that every individual has the right to pursue his or her goals, to not be denied the effort of one's labor, and to achieve satisfaction through one's own toil.
If you believe in the pursuit, if you find happiness through community deeds, commitment to your family, value you create at work, or relief and reinvigoration in the spiritual, then you are ready to take the happiness pledge. The pledge is a reminder to yourself that you have a contribution to make, you have purpose, and you feel dignity from your efforts to make a life of value for yourself and for others.
