“A belief is an absolute but arbitrary mental stance.”

“A truly happy person does not allow his happiness to be dependent on any external factor over which he may not have control.”

“Before we can consider which way to go from where we are, we must agree on where we want to end up. If our desire is to become happy, then let’s begin by having a realistic understanding of what it means to be happy.”

“Constantly making yourself better so that other people will benefit from being around you is actually thoughtful and generous.”

“Focus on your sacred purpose and you will enjoy, and quite probably increase, the rewards you receive. Focus on the rewards alone and they will never be enough.”

“Forgiveness does not change the past, but it does enlarge the future.”

“Happiness does not come from doing easy work but from the afterglow of satisfaction that comes after the achievement of a difficult task that demanded our best.”

“Happy people are not people without problems; they are people who face their problems and at some point make a decision to move past them.”

“Happy people believe they are happy. This is one of the secrets to happiness. No one who believes him or herself to be unhappy is actually happy. Happiness is a mind-set.”

“Hating people is like burning down your own house to get rid of a rat.”

“Hugging boosts the neuropeptide oxytocin, which has a lowering effect on blood pressure, promotes well-being, and even improves memory.”

“Hurt people hurt people. We are not being judgmental by separating ourselves from such people. But we should do so with compassion.”

“I jumped into my car and fishtailed out of the driveway.”

“If other people resist your point of view on something, it’s a chance to check in with yourself and see if you truly believe what you are saying and to clarify and change or, ideally, strengthen your perspective.”

“If venting our anger made us happier, then wouldn’t the biggest complainers also be the happiest people?”

“If you don’t like something change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude.”

“In reality, we must first understand that happiness is a karmic process that moves from causes in our thoughts, speech, and actions, and ultimately imprints itself upon our habits, our character, and our destiny.”

“Instead, consider everything you want someone else to do to be an invitation that the other person may or may not choose to accept.”

“Invitations not obligations: Our expectations of other people can be a big drain on our emotions. When we ask someone to do something, or, worse, have a belief that someone should do something and insist that he or she comply, it places a great stress on us.”

“Make yourself a better person. Become someone that people want to be around. You have to think about people around you. Improving yourself isn’t vain or selfish.”

“Misery not only loves company, it derives validation from it.”

“People tend to have a false belief that they would like to never face another challenge, and yet much of our happiness comes in facing and overcoming challenges.”

“The problem with resolutions for change is that they are often formed from the unstated and unreal belief that we are overcoming a personal deficiency in order to reach a happier state.”

“To cultivate your own happiness, remember the words of venerated Rabbi Yeruchom Levovitz: “A truly happy person does not allow his happiness to be dependent on any external factor over which he may not have control.”

“Vanity is believing that you are the center of the universe, whereas accepting appreciation and approval is savoring the sunlight that shines your way.”

“Watch your thoughts, for they become words. Watch your words, for they become actions. Watch your actions, for they become habits. Watch your habits, for they become character. Watch your character, for it becomes your destiny.”

“When you begin to understand that millions of people alive today would gladly trade places with you at any time, you realize just how privileged you are.”

“You can take a step one day in a direction that is not best suited to your purpose. Then the next day you take another step along this path, and then another. Soon you have walked away from what would most bring you happiness and satisfaction.”

“You can’t be happy when you are complaining: Complaining amplifies problems, it doesn’t diminish them. Complaining only increases being upset; it doesn’t lessen it. If complaining made people feel better, then the biggest complainers would be the happiest people.”

“Your mind loves to multitask, which is another way of saying “not focus.””
