Hi! My name is Lisa Cutler from The Butterfly Program and welcome to this Monday Motivator on ‘What Makes Us Truly Happy’.

Research shows that extrinsic factors – those things outside of us, those things external to us only account to 10% of our level of happiness.

Now they include our job, our status, money, image, rewards, stuff – it’s only 10% of our happiness.

What makes us truly happy

For far greater level of happiness, we look inside ourselves. We look for intrinsic values. These things are our connection to others, our relationships, they’re gratitude, they’re compassion, they’re a desire to make a difference, to have a positive effect on somebody else, to help other people.

They are a far greater accountability of our happiness than things that are external to us.

So if you want to be truly happy today, go and help somebody else. Show kindness or compassion to someone. Spend some time connecting, relating to other people. That’s the way to be truly happy. And remember, everything that you need for true happiness is already inside of you.
