In addition to what you posted, I would like to point out that a person could be truly happy if he turns his perceived obstacles into opportunities. In order to do that, I think one has to change harmful patterns of thinking by first identifying what his fears are: is it the past or expectations from the future?
Once a person discovers his limiting beliefs, he can then focus on the positive. After which, a person can take actions that will lead him towards a future filled with happiness. Read This First!

I recently ordered this book due to the glowing reviews on Amazon. Santosha or 'contentment' doesn't mean idly sitting back and relinquishing the need to do anything. It simply means accepting and appreciating what we have and what we are already, and moving forwards from there.
But we do have to consider what goals are really important to our life, our world and our wellbeing. Getting that promotion, losing weight, buying the car, the house or even meeting someone and falling in love are all things that we seek outside of ourselves in order to make us happy — and sooner or later those things or at least the initial joy of those things leaves. So how do we escape this and move further towards that sense of Santosha?
The well known yogic text The Bhagavad Gita teaches us not to look outside of ourselves for happiness, but to realise that peace and happiness lies within. When we rely on things which are external to us to bring us freedom, we inevitably bind ourselves to discontentment even more.
Realising this, we can come closer to accepting that as nature constantly changes around us — the weather, the seasons, temperatures and life cycles — our body and mind too are subject to change. If you're looking for happiness, look no further - it's already inside you, and there are plenty of ways to uncover it on and off the yoga mat. The truth is, whether we can walk on our hands or whether we find staying in downward facing dog for more than ten breaths a challenge — there will always be further to go and more to explore in our practice. The good news is, we have a lifetime to practise in!
