Why Do People Do Stupid Things?

I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but from time to time, people do stupid things. Ahhhh, you have noticed. We scratch our heads and wonder: Why would anybody do something so stupid? Don’t they know that’s going make them miserable?

The answers are simple and surprising. No, they don’t know it’s going to make them miserable. People don’t wake up in the morning and think to themselves: “I wonder how I can make myself really miserable today?” Quite the opposite, in fact. People do stupid things because they mistakenly believe those stupid things will make them happy.

And of course, sometimes, you and I, are those people. So, what stupid thing are you thinking about doing? What stupid thing are you already doing hoping it will make you happy?

You are on a quest for happiness. We often pretend we don’t know what will make us happy, but it’s not true either; the truth is, you know exactly what will make you happy.
