We all somehow know that humor rises from deep inside us. It is already there in all of us, and is always present. The only trick to “being funny” is to access that part of ourselves and give it a voice.
A “better life” is never more than a better experience of it, not any quantifiable aspect of it. “Better” is what you, and you alone, know about your life. It is not measurable, nor does it ever need to be. Measuring is only necessary when you want to communicate value to another. But your life is yours alone; it can never be experienced by another.
