I try my best to constantly remind myself that no amount of money, no level of achievement and no external situation is going to make me happier than the happiness I cultivate within myself.
Sometimes, you wish for more. During those nights of discomfort, you wish you were living in luxury. During those lonely moments you are wishing for love and those moments of pure passion and motivation, you are striving for high levels of achievement and impact.
But, this attachment to these external things can only do so much. They bring joy in the short term, but it’s a known fact that once the novelty wears off, you go back to the same place you once were before you attained these things.
Happiness, love and impact begin from within.
