Shattering Happiness Myths, by Jose Gomez, MD
Popular myths include:
- "If I could find the right job for me, I'd be happy."
- "Some people are born unhappy, and there's nothing I can do about it."
- "I've got way too many problems to be happy."
- "All of this debt robs me of any happiness."
- "If only I had the right partner, I'd be happier."
Don't be fooled into thinking that if you had all of the above you'd be happier. Studies show that the above things increase because of happiness and not necessarily the other way around.
Scientific research by Positive Psychology discovered that challenging situations only account for 10% of someone's unhappiness. So, even if you can't let go of the idea that the popular myths play a role in your level of unhappiness, repeated studies show that all of those external reasons play a small role.
That's good news if your level of happiness is lower than desired. And if that describes you, don't feel like you're alone. A recent Harris Poll surveyed U.S. adults, and only 33% of them reported being very happy.
However, you can learn to be happy. No one is destined to be unhappy. Specific skills and habits can add to your level of happiness the moment you begin practicing them. And they're things that everyone can learn and use for a lifetime.
When you learn the skills needed to create more satisfaction, meaning, and joy in your life, you may also experience:
- Increased wealth
- Improved relationships
- Increased sexual desire and more fulfilling intimacy
- Better mental health
- Better physical health
- Increased well-being and vitality
