In A Theory of Justice, John Rawls writes that

we can think of a person as being happy when he is in the way of a successful execution (more or less) of a rational plan of life drawn up under (more or less) favorable conditions, and he is reasonably confident that his plan can be carried through.

(Rawls 1971: 409)
