Happiness is an inside job

They tell me ‘happiness is an inside job,’ but too many of us place our happiness markers in external factors like people, places, and things – factors we have very little control over, which means our happiness then becomes a yo-yo affair.

For true lasting happiness, you have to turn inwards. Epictetus and the rest of the Stoics laid it out: focus on the things you can control (which is basically your own mind) and let the rest unfold as it will.

Focus on the great adventure that is the inward journey to self. Nothing else matters – really.

Here are some other things you may have forgotten about life.
