You know that feeling that everything seems to slip out of your hands? That you’re dreaming of a more productive and controlled life, but it’s just not working out for ya? I got that a lot. Today I made a list of goals, where I stop making excuses and JUST DO.
Lately I’m trying to be more self conscious about everything I do, without holding back. I’m trying to learn how to use the positive things I have when It’s not going well. Studies show that when you focus on your positives instead of working on your negatives, that’s what make people live longer and be happy. I’m reading books about it (in dutch).
M.E.P. Seligman is the founder of this theory and wrote a book about it. His book is called Authentic Happiness. (Gelukkig zijn kun je leren) Sonja Lyubomirsky is a scientist and with the studies of Seligman, she wrote a book of her findings, with scientific proof. Her book is called The How of Happiness. (De maakbaarheid van geluk)
So without restraining myself, I’ve set up some goals.
