Happiness exists in the pursuit and achievement of your goals. YOUR GOALS. Goals may change throughout your life, but the result of achieving new goals will always be the same. Happy. Sometimes you can come up short on your goals. Its okay to be a little dissapointed. However, by having pursued that dream as hard as you could, you should look back and smile at the journey. At the effort. At the small successes along the path. Not winning or achieving your goals all the time is ok. Not trying your hardest is never ok.
Enjoy these 10 quotes on being happy from quite a wide range of people you may have heard of.
“Thousands of candles can be lit from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.” Buddha
“The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quiet, alone with the heavens, nature and God. As long as this exists, and it certainly always will, then there will be comfort for every sorrow, whatever the circumstances may be.” Anne Frank

On the other hand, if someone is suffering from depression, anxiety, or any form of emotional distress, then even if he or she happens to be enjoying physical comforts, he will not really be able to experience the happiness that these could bring.
– Tenzin Gyatso, 14th Dalai Lama
Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful.

Most folks are about as happy as they make up their minds to be.

Happiness is the meaning and the purpose of life, the whole aim and end of human existence.
Happiness is not a goal; it is a by-product.
– Eleanor Roosevelt
Just as a cautious businessman avoids investing all his capital in one concern, so wisdom would probably admonish us also not to anticipate all our happiness from one quarter alone.
