Happiness. Could it be the hardest thing to achieve in life? Happiness isn’t just something that happens over night. You either earn it or you don’t. “How to by happiness” by Elizabeth Dunn and Michael Norton. Money buying happiness doesn’t seem natural in anyway. It’s unethical to have the amount of your happiness based upon the money you have in your pocket. “What suffering does” by David brooks. Explaining a whole new meaning on how happiness can be accomplished. Suffering…. Shaping us as new people as we go through it, with the end result of happiness.

Visions Of Well Being Of NY
In the 2 victory speeches that were presented on YouTube of both Bill De Blasio and & Joe Lhota, You see that they were both thankful for the fact that they have a chance against making a change for the city of New York. Each of these candidates for mayor had a different approach that had to do with specifically how they would change the living for people in NYC and the educational system in NYC. In the Bill De Blasio video in the time length of 15:35-16:40, He states that NYC is a huge city and that the city has gone through to much to go backwards as a city and should go forward and how different NYC is a different city & he knows that there is a long road of ahead of making a change in the city. But however he thinks that the city should think big as a city and that change is desired and should be simulated always into everything in NY. He doesn’t want to settle for anything. He was very vague in everything he said. He made sure to mention that to mention the police problems of “Stop And Frisk” not making it a safe place for both the new Yorkers and the NYPD. As you can see through the time of 17:00-17:45 he knows and realizes that NYC can change and move as a community and also knows that he cares about the happiness of everybody that lives in NY and wants to try and talk about more of the problems that people deal with in the city rather than the problems in political office. As for however Joe Lhota sounded more of the opposite. Ironically enough he is a republican. I think he spoke more about his office rather than the city itself. Yes he talks about how much value the city should have but I don’t think he went in depth more like the way Bill did on the happiness of the people in NYC. For example, 18:00-19:00 mark of the video with Joe Lhota. He states that we should all just try and support the NYPD because they are just trying to protect the city but however they don’t make the people feel entirely safe according to Bill De Blassio because of things like the “Stop & Frisk” rule that is around.
So the differences that I see in-between both of these candidates is hat both of them have a different type of vision. They both have different types of leadership. However one believes in helping the people more than the other. Like I believed in the beginning that just because Joe is a republican he would talk more about himself and not the people’s desires and changes in the city and that Bill would talk more about changing the city for the better of the peoples happiness rather than him just building off this opportunity to gain his name more attention. In my Opinion it just seems like Bill was more of a mayor than Joe Lhota was as far as speech’s go. Being mayor means putting the city in order and in big city’s like NYC or LA it means a lot to be a leader for the people and not just for yourself because you have to support in making the city a place to be living in. Like making it affordable to live in the cities and making it a safe place by lowering the crime and also making jobs easier for people to have and find. So I just think that one has a more clear vision for the people living in the city while another has a clear vision of just the city itself.
