Naturally happy people unconsciously engage in:

  1. Social comparison (or the lack thereof)
  2. Retrospective judgment

1) “Social comparison” means don’t compare yourself to others.

2) “Retrospective judgment” means reevaluating events and putting a positive spin on them.

So basically: be arrogant around and ignorant of others...
