Anyways, now that we got that out of the way. I was watching a TED Talk yesterday and an interesting chart came up that I wanted to share. 25% of work happiness and success comes from knowledge. The rest comes from positivity and performance, happiness and intelligence, optimism levels, social support and ability to see stress as a challenge rather than a threat.
The way the world thinks is if you work harder you will become successful, once you’re successful then you’ll be happy but guess what; once you succeed in one thing, you change your bar of success. If you are stuck in this cycle, you will never be happy.
Seems like a no-brainer to me but it is apparently its big news. Check out the whole TED Talk below.
