He also believes that some desirable goods can determine a good life style. I agree that everyone has an ultimate goal in life. However, I firmly disagree with Aristotles reasoning because I do not believe a specific good or circumstance can make one happy. I believe happiness is found through God whether one is referring to happiness as an emotion, well-being, success or eudemonia. Others agree with Thomas Aquinas who defines happiness as the ultimate end for rational beings and requires possession of the virtues. Aquinas believes that happiness can only be found in God and by seeing God.
He thinks it is near impossible for one to be happy in this life because of the destruction this world posses. I agree that happiness indeed comes from God, but I disagree that one cannot be happy here on earth. I view happiness in the same light as Friedrich Nietzsche who defines the formula to happiness as a yes, a no, a straight line, a goal (#44). Meaning happiness is when someone has a chief goal (which I believe is to glorify God) and one stays on a straight path and establishes a decision of yes and or no to situations, actions, or ideas because of a desired path in order to.
