What would you say if I told you that being happier is within your control and has nothing to do with your mindset?
A study from Dartmouth College found that most people are happy before they turn 18 and after 60 years of age. In between is where you ride the happiness roller coaster.
How do you get off?
It turns out that being happier comes down to three things:
1) Control. People who have a feeling of control in their lives tend to be happier in general.
2) Education. Whether you earn a college degree or teach yourself, more education means a happier you.
3) Job. You were born to be busy. Having a full-time or part-time job, even owning your own business will make you a happier person.
Your education and your job enhance your view of the world. So if you want to be happy for the rest of your life, fill your mind with lots of education and work at a satisfying job.
Your reward will be a feeling of control that will put a smile on your face every day.
