Study, work hard, and you will be successful.

 

This was the mantra repeated by educators throughout my youth. None of them added "be happy" to the success equation.


Via The Learning Factor, Ivon Prefontaine, PhD, Bobby Dillard
John Michel's insight:

A growing body of research in positive psychology and neuroscience is demonstrating that happiness is the secret ingredient to success. It turns out, our brains are more engaged, creative, productive, and resilient when in a positive state.

Doing what you love can make you happy-- finding a way to make money while doing what you love is even better! 

Graeme Reid's curator insight, April 10, 2014 7:55 PM

If you don't enjoy what you do it is very difficult to be successful.  There are ways to re-frame the way that you look at things to help you focus on what is important to you.
