Reinventing Happiness

Many people believe that happiness comes from success, health and great human connections. However, the inverse of this principle is actually the statement that is the truest: success, wealth, good health, and nurturing relationships are by-products of happiness, not the cause. When you are happy, you are more likely to make choices that lead to all these things.

We know this to be true when we observe the people around us. Successful and famous people have notoriously unhappy lives, good health can be taken for granted and even happy families can be struck down by an unexpected tragedy. And yet, why do we continue to believe the erroneous notion that success, health and relationships are all we need to make us happy? Perhaps it is time to shift our gaze beyond external factors to focus on inner happiness, which is really what we all wish to attain.

Thank you very much!
