It’s an inside job.

Despite our persistent pursuit of it — in success, money, career advancements, and stuff — something always feels amiss.

No matter how many times we’ve tried, when we search for happiness in the external world, we come up short every time.

Just when we think we’re almost there, so close to finally being happy, someone moves the goalposts.
