There can be no happiness without peace of mind

....and materialistic things can’t provide that. Indulging in a certain degree of hedonistic pleasure will do you good, but happiness comes from feeling at peace with who you are and how you spend your time.

The path to happiness is in perceiving mistakes as lessons rather than failures

It’s hard to feel peaceful if you punish yourself for making mistakes. You may even end up avoiding risks and new experiences to escape the pain of your own self-judgment. But trying new things not only opens up avenues for you, but also brings a sense of fulfillment in life.

Avoiding negative emotions can give you the feeling of being trapped in a prison

When you can’t accept them, you can’t deal with them. You deny yourself the opportunity to resolve those feelings permanently and feel free.

Life always happens in the present

Holding on to your past will only allow it to control your present. Thinking about the future, on the other hand, will lead you to daydream and imagine potential outcomes, which may be far worse than the reality.
