“Happiness is an inside job. Don’t assign anyone else that much power over your life”

“Happiness is an inside job. Don’t assign anyone else that much power over your life” is an inspirational saying that has been printed on many images. Syndicated newspaper columnist Elsie Robinson, in her “Listen, World!” column on December 16, 1936, wrote:
 
“Happiness is an inside job. And it can be achieved only by your own right attitude.”
 
This was expanded in a tweet by TheSingleWoman (author Mandy Hale) on February 2, 2011:
 
“Happiness is an inside job. Don’t assign anyone else that much power over your life. #TheSW”
