Don’t count what you own (in terms of money, power, status, or romantic partners) and try to figure out how to increase them; make an inventory of the attachments that you need to discard instead. Then, make a plan to act on eliminating them.
Take personal responsibility for your successes, failures, your health, your happiness, etc.
Personal responsibility does not involve blaming yourself or anyone else. It's about empowering yourself to create the life, success and happiness that you desire. It's about becoming solutions-focused and making the necessary changes in your life to produce better results.
“Life is essentially an endless series of problems—the solution to one problem is merely the creation of the next. Don’t hope for a life without problems. Hope for a life full of good problems.”
You control your happiness the same way you control your health, and If you can set goals for your health, you can do it for happiness.
Pursuing intrinsic goals, like learning a new language or taking care of your body, provides a sense of purpose and a feeling of control over your life, making you happier because you want to become better.
