Everyday, I hear people saying "I am not happy because of XXX". Your environment does not dictate your happiness. The people around you does not dictate your happiness. You have a choice, whether to be happy, sad, disappointed, angry.... it's all a matter of mindset and attitude. It is ultimately your choice.
Are you feeling happy today despite the challenges you face? This is one of my favourite questions I ask as a mental toughness coach. What is your answer?
