After 40 years of research social scientists have discovered a formula for happiness. They attribute happiness to three major sources: genes, events and values. It’s reported that about half of our happiness is hard-wired in our genes. Another 40% of our happiness is based on events.
And choosing to pursue four basic values: faith, family, community and work is the surest path to happiness, which contributes 12%.
So, if you are a generally happy person thank your parents…and if you aren’t you can raise your levels through faith, family, community and work. It’s up to you to choose . Make the rest of your life – the best of your life.
