It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all; in which case, you fail by default.

This study links materialism with low self-esteem. Apparently, an added bonus to being happy with yourself is the lowering of your expenses.

The more we feel we need to tie our self worth to external things to feel whole, the more often we will have to stray from our true personality and core values to bend into the shape the world asks of us to acquire them. This is how we get lost.

I wish everyone could get rich and famous and have everything they ever dreamed of, so they would know that's not the answer.

Suffering comes in two different forms: Craving something you can’t have, or avoiding something you don’t want. What do these both have in common? We create them in our own minds by judging how we expect life to be. The more you are able to remove your judgments and accept whatever type of chaos life throws at you, the more internal peace you will find.

There are very few things so important that they’re worth reacting to in such a way that it disturbs our inner peace.
