Every once in a while it helps to sit back and contemplate all that we do have in life. Happiness is something many people are constantly chasing and feel that when they achieve X then they can be happy. Now X can be a better paying job, when they retire, buying a new car, etc. However, research shows that true happiness is not something that can be achieved from the external but rather a mindset shift from within. The reason external events are not the key to true happiness is because the joy we may feel when achieving a goal or purchasing something new does not last. Once the event is over, the joy we felt cannot be sustained.
