Does True Happiness Come From Within?

This is a simple question, and I'll prove the answer right now.

Think of something that makes you happy.

Think of something that makes you angry.

Think of something that makes you sad.

Think of something that makes you laugh.

Think of something that makes you happy.

True happiness comes from within and it is always a choice as to if you activate that happiness or not.

Happiness does come easier to some people, but that is only because they have more practice choosing to be happy. The more you choose to experience happiness, the more of a habit it will become and it will make you a happier person.

I believe this so deeply, I wrote a book on ways you can choose to be happy. You can find it here.

All of the quotes below are from the Dalai Lama, and from .

1. “If you think you’re too small to make a difference, try sleeping with a mosquito.”

2. “Everything you do has some effect, some impact.”

3. “Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions.”

4. “Our prime purpose in this life is to help others. And if you can’t help them, at least don’t hurt them.”

5. “When we feel love and kindness toward others, it not only makes others feel loved and cared for, but it helps us also to develop inner happiness and peace.”

6. “People take different roads seeking fulfillment and happiness. Just because they’re not on your road doesn’t mean they’ve gotten lost.”

7. “We don’t need more money, we don’t need greater success or fame, we don’t need the perfect body or even the perfect mate. Right now, at this very moment, we have a mind, which is all the basic equipment we need to achieve complete happiness.”

8. “Human happiness and human satisfaction most ultimately come from within oneself.”

9. “The purpose of our lives is to be happy.”

10. “If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.”

11. “Choose to be optimistic. It feels better.”

12. “Remember that sometimes not getting what you want is a wonderful stroke of luck.”
