The Simple Key to Happier Feelings

Money? Nope.

Fame? Nah.

Good looks? Nuh-uh.

None of these things paves the road to happiness.

What does? Science says you’ll have to look inside. Turns out that PERSONAL GROWTH is one of the keys to glad feelings, researchers have determined.So focus on self-improvement daily, whether it’s taking better care of your health, doing things that give you confidence, or journaling to understand yourself better.

Joyful Goal Getting Yep, we all have a fundamental psychological need to make our own choices, feel a sense of accomplishment, and connect deeply with others. Which is why personal development is ground zero for good vibrations.

And a recent study of newly graduated college students helped prove it. Those who spent their first 2 years out of school pursuing materialistic goals (think wealth, looks, and fame) were far less happy than students who achieved more intrinsic personal goals, like getting involved in their communities, nurturing close friendships, and working on inner growth.

Inner Happiness Reigns

In fact, the materialistic students’ goals actually contributed slightly to their unhappiness. So don’t go there! Instead, formulate your own personal development goals, and use these tips to help you achieve them:

Believe. Yes, you can do it! In fact, the college student study confirmed that the more committed someone is to attaining a goal, the more likely he or she will succeed.

Love. Your life, that is. It’s a gift!

Laugh. With others.

The reason it caught my eye was the fact that it focuses on the importance of PERSONAL GROWTH.   I believe wholeheartedly in the power of personal development based on my own experience and what I have seen happen in the lives of others.

I am delighted to be an independent distributor for the Polaris Media Group.  The company is built upon the belief that, given practical education, every individual has the ability to realize their inherent potential and live a life of personal fulfillment.
