Happiness comes through the progressive realization of a worthy objective.

Which of the following is the best criticism of the above statement?

Happiness comes through excellence.
Happiness comes from within.
Success in any matter is not enough for happiness.
Happiness comes through the realization of any objective, worthy or otherwise.
Happiness does not mean the same for everyone

Different people have different objective, hence Happiness means different to everyone. So E.

Happiness comes through the progressive realization of a worthy object [#permalink]
Official Explanation

The speaker gives a definite view about happiness. He does not use terms to suggest that happiness could mean this for some. He does not consider that people differ from each other in their viewpoints. He makes a general statement which is not applicable for everyone. Also it is not necessary that each person has an objective to realize, however important or unimportant. Thus we can say that E is the best answer option.

Hope it helps

What if people that don t believe finding happiness in objective realization is a small minority.
