Your environment determines your happiness. So does your genetics. However, these two factors make up 60% of how happy you feel. The rest 40% is your own attitude and response.
1. You need to have a growth mindset
‘Growth mindset’ is a term invented by Carol Dweck. The author of the book titled Mindset claims that you cannot be happy unless you have a ‘fixed’ mindset. Rather, we need to have a growth mindset to live a happy life. Carol explains the reader how important it is to take challenges and never be afraid of failures. Improving and developing new abilities and skills should be our priority. According to her, affirmation of worth and intelligence is success.
