In this video, Entrepreneur Network partner, Jack Canfield explains that someone else's ideals shouldn't affect your own happiness. Instead, he says that in order to achieve happiness, you should create focused goals for yourself. 

Start by determining what you really want in life, whether that means having a high-profile career, time to spend with family or something altogether different. Your social circle and relatives should not decide what is right for you, only you can decide.
