Happiness Set-Point

“50 percent of our happiness comes from our genetics. But more exciting was the new information they uncovered about the remaining 50 percent. It appears that only 10 percent of our happiness set-point is determined by circumstances such as our level of wealth, marital status, and job. The other 40 percent is determined by our habitual thoughts, feelings, words, and actions. In the same way you’d crank up the thermostat to get comfortable on a chilly day, you actually have the power to reprogram your happiness set-point to a higher level of peace and well-being. The discovery of the happiness set-point and our ability to change it turns everything we’ve all believed about being happy upside down.” #marcishimoff #happyfornoreason #happiness #creativity #selfdevelopment
