Happiness is a choice, not a result. Nothing will make you happy until you choose to be happy. No person will make you happy unless you decide to be happy. Your happiness will not come to you. It can only come from you

Ralph Marston

Why do I like the quote?

Life changes when you realise your happiness is in YOUR hands. Happiness is something you work at, it doesn't fall out of the sky. Get consistent, do more of the things that make you feel good. You will have to push yourself, but it's so worth it.

“Low self-esteem is like driving through life with your hand-break on.”

Maxwell Maltz

Why do I like the quote?

Low Self-Esteem will stand in the way of you being you, doing the things you want to do and saying the things you want to say. Recognising this mind-set is holding you back and standing in the way of adventure is the first step to making change.

“Because one believes in oneself, one doesn't try to convince others. Because one is content with oneself, one doesn't need others' approval. Because one accepts oneself, the whole world accepts him or her.”

Lao Tzu

Why do I like the quote?

Caring what other's think or looking for their approval creates issues. You can't control others so it's just too risky. When you accept yourself, other people's expectations and opinions have less of a sting.

"You cannot protect yourself from sadness without protecting yourself from happiness"

Jonathan Safran Foer

Why do I like the quote?

We always need a reminder to choose love over fear. It's so tempting and easy to close yourself off, especially if you have been hurt, but we can't let the past steal happiness from our present and future.

"Focus on the journey, not the destination. Joy is found not in finishing an activity but in doing it."

Greg Anderson

Why do I like the quote?

It is so easy to focus on the destination and believe getting there will make us happy. It means though, in the meantime we live waiting for happiness. Usually we are at the destination a matter of seconds before we are looking for the next, and sometimes the destination is isn't the butterflies and glitter we expected.

“It isn’t what you have, or who you are, or where you are, or what you are doing that makes you happy or unhappy. It is what you think about.”

Dale Carnegie

Why do I like the quote?

Reminding me that where I place my attention, plays a big role in my happiness.

"Knowing what's right doesn't mean much unless you do what's right"

Theodore Roosevelt

Why do I like the quote?

This quote sums up a conversation I had this week. When your actions start to match your values and what you know - there is a sense of freedom that comes with a pure feeling of content.

“Healing comes from taking responsibility: to realise that it is you - and no one else - that creates your thoughts, your feelings, and your actions.”

Peter Shepherd

Why do I like the quote?

The moment you realise your reactions are your own responsibility - you gain so much power and ability to change your life.
