You cannot pursue happiness. Happiness is a byproduct of three things; the quality of your relationships, the degree of control you feel you have in your life, and using your gifts and potential in the pursuit of a worthy goal or dream.
If you want to be happier, work on improving your relationships with the most important people in your life, and chase your dream with all your heart and soul.
“Satisfaction lies in the effort, not in the attainment. Full effort is full victory.”
– Mohandas Gandhi
