Happiness and Freedom

Happiness and freedom begin with a clear understanding of one principle: Some things are within our control and some things are not. It is when we learn to distinguish between what we can control and what we cannot control that inner tranquility and outer effectiveness become possible. (Epictectus)

What we do not have control are other people opinions or objective realities. What we have control are our own attitudes, aspirations, and the contents and character of our inner lives. When we see clearly, we will meet with tranquility what we cannot control and focus our energy on cultivating what we can control.
