Can too much happiness hurt motivation? Can too much motivation hurt happiness? How can we find a balance between happiness and motivation?

 

I guess it depends on your definition of happiness. If you define happiness as being fully satisfied and content with everything in your life, then there would never be anything you’re motivated to change.

 

Motivation implies a willingness to make something better. But if you’re happy with everything, then there is nothing you want to make better because everything is already fine the way it is.
