A friend of mine shared Mark Manson's website to me today. Essentially the site is about the psychology of personal growth and culture all told through the crazy lens of Manson's experiences. If you have some time on your hand I recommend checking out his Archives . This quote was taken from an inspiring article titled "The Most Important Question of Your Life."  I really appreciate how Manson suggests that our dreams and desires are not driven by perceived happiness but rather by the amount of pain you're willing to go through.

"At the core of all human behavior, the good feelings we all want are more or less the same. Therefore what we get out of life is not determined by the good feelings we desire but by what bad feelings we’re willing to sustain." -- Mark Manson
