Questions: The Exercise of Vital Powers

The declaration

"Happiness is the exercise of vital powers, along lines of excellence, in a life affording them scope"

is attributed to Aristotle. That, in modern slang, means the ability and capacity to use your inherent talents, skills, senses, physical and mental capabilities in a manner which brings maximum benefit or self-actualisation, in a life which lets you strive to do your best and be your best.

How do you exercise your vital powers? What lines of excellence do you pursue, and how much scope does your life afford you in the pursuit of that excellence?
