Happiness is directly correlated to how much freedom of choice you believe you have. The greatest possible choice is to discover, express, and share your best self. That also creates inner happiness that gets stronger over time. The research proves that happiness is possible through intentional habit changes, more than circumstantial changes. Only 10% of our happiness is due to our external circumstances and a full 90% is based on our inner environment, with as much as 40% influenced by our intentional daily activities and the CHOICES we make!
