You must commit to live your life in a beautiful state and you must reinforce this commitment constantly. You will be tested throughout life so you must remind yourself what you want. Your mind is not designed to make you happy. It is design to make you survive. Your quality of life and your happiness is your responsibility. Once you have your survival needs figured (food, water, air, shelter) out then you can work on your happiness. Know and write down what will make you happy otherwise we will always be chasing the newest things we see on TV or advertisements. Have a road map to happiness.
