Stop Making Your Happiness Conditional

If you want to be happy then stop making your happiness conditional.

 
Your happiness doesn’t come from anything happening outside of you—it comes from within.

It doesn’t come from having a certain amount of money in the bank.

It doesn’t come from the scale reading a specific number.

It doesn’t come from living in a particular house.

It doesn’t come from the type of car you drive.

Happiness doesn’t come from achieving a goal.
 

Your happiness comes from within.

 
It comes from how you think about the money you have in the bank.

It comes from how you feel about your body.

It comes from the thoughts you have about where you live.

It comes from what you tell yourself about the car you drive.

It comes from the stories you tell yourself about what achieving (or not achieving) your goals means.
 

Happiness is an inside job.

 
You can choose to be happy with the amount of money you have now.

You can choose to be happy before you lose the weight.

You can choose to be happy about your home exactly as it is right now.

You can choose to be happy before you reach that goal.

You can choose to be happy without something big happening.
 

You get to choose to be happy.

 
It’s a choice that is always available to you. It’s up to you to choose happiness.
 

If you continually make your happiness conditional on some external event you’re going to continually deprive yourself of the happiness you desire.

 
There are people right now with the amount of money you wish you had, living in the house you dream of, with the body you want, driving your dream car who aren’t happy. (And of course there are those who are).

But, the outer shit is NEVER what makes you happy.

It’s what you think about it that makes you happy.

If you want to be happy then choose to be.

It’s that simple.

Remember, you absolutely can Love Your Life and Live Your Dreams. It all begins within.
