Linking happiness to peace

I’m a big believer of the idea that happinesss comes from within.

But I wasn’t sure how you really locate it within you. So I’ve come up with a theory:

In order for happiness to come from inside us we have to feel at peace.

And in order for us to feel at peace we need to control our worries and fears. 

And in order for us to control our worries and fears we need to banish self doubt and be confident. 

But we can’t banish that doubt until we feel happy inside, and happy with ourselves.

See diagram:

Essentially, all these things are intrinsically linked. One leads to another. It’s a journey, a process, a complex mass of experiences and feelings and personality traits that make it incredibly hard to simply live by one mantra that happiness comes from within.

In order to get to that place we have to dig deeper.

    Attaining happiness is a paradox for it is the most difficult as well as the easiest state to be achieved.And yes it is not dependent on external factors or circumstances but many intrinsically linked internal factors that you have described well above.
