"Happiness is that state of consciousness which proceeds from the achievement of one's values."

"A creative man is motivated by the desire to achieve, not by the desire to beat others."

"Achievement of your happiness is the only moral purpose of your life, and that happiness, not pain or mindless self-indulgence, is the proof of your moral integrity, since it is the proof and the result of your loyalty to the achievement of your values."

"Happiness is that state of consciousness which proceeds from the achievement of one's values."

"A creative man is motivated by the desire to achieve, not by the desire to beat others."

"Achievement of your happiness is the only moral purpose of your life, and that happiness, not pain or mindless self-indulgence, is the proof of your moral integrity, since it is the proof and the result of your loyalty to the achievement of your values."

"People create their own questions because they are afraid to look straight. All you have to do is look straight and see the road, and when you see it, don't sit looking at it - walk."

"I swear, by my life and my love of it, that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine."

"Love is the expression of one's values, the greatest reward you can earn for the moral qualities you have achieved in your character and person, the emotional price paid by one man for the joy he receives from the virtues of another."

"The question isn't who is going to let me; it's who is going to stop me."

I'm a young professional, with a great new job in NYC. Career related depression have evaporated. I am happy to have achieved that goal. Now to study for the GMAT and go to business school!

Goals I have that WERE impacted by lack of happiness in my PREVIOUS job are weight goals, spirituality goals, community involvement goals, romantic involvement goals and educational goals.

Now I am content in current job and looking to jumpstart all of the above goals!!!

My confidence level is connected how I feel about my body in a large way. Between 2009-2011 I gained 42 lbs (to total 250 lbs) which has added to my depression. I hope to change a lot of things and this website seems like a great place to connect with others on a similar path.

While reflecting on the sacrifices our veterans and current military personnel have made for our freedom, consider what you have been willing to give up for your fight for better health!
