What makes a good life? "Is Hypnosis Fake?" Hypnotist stuns 6 months ago   12:47

What keeps us happy and healthy as we go through life? If you think it's fame and money, you're not alone – but, according to psychiatrist Robert Waldinger, you're mistaken. As the director of 75-year-old study on adult development, Waldinger has unprecedented access to data on true happiness and satisfaction. In this talk, he shares three important lessons learned from the study as well as some practical, old-as-the-hills wisdom on how to build a fulfilling, long life.

Choose your life’s mate carefully.
Very very very. Carefully.
Miserable spouse. Miserable life.
Stick with your own kind.
You must be on the same page as far as the big things are concerned. Money. Religion. Kids. Politics.
F@&k what color to paint the house or what the color pattern is on the couch.
Choose your life’s mate carefully.
People get happy when they achieve something and after they act like because of their positive approach and hardwork all happened. Let them ask if you fail again and again after retrying hard and hard by putting more efforts thereby loosing health because of continuous sadness leading to stress and anxiety wouldn’t you be loosing hope or become pessimistic. All after this comes the person, who say it’s because you are negative and not focussed that’s why you are failing everytime. I hate this end person and someone inform them after working hard patiently all the time if someone lost all entire wealth, health and time and now much more new issues striking on the way. It’s all the luck at the end I will say. Successful people never believe in luck because they want to get extra attraction and someone ask them if you doing work and something happen before your success without your fault and keep on happening something everytime you not gonna say hardwork or positive approach works.

Lol when I read the comments below many are saying that they don't need people, have no friends. Yet those are the ones with the biggest social network. Because social connection is though the computer now. I think what's more important than having a set of close friends (seem far fetched now days) is communication. Knowing how to communicate with others is absolute key in life

In summary if you are happy then you are happy. And if you are not happy then you are unhappy. This brillant thoughts gonna change my life. Really. I say.

The problem is that, they choose to be in company and became lonely. I choose loneliness and it has nothing to do with the other persons, and i am simply happy.💞
Do we really know that what happiness is? This video describes real happiness in a very logical way. This is a ‘must watch video’ to find out the truth.

Having a psycho boss also kills you earlier.

I personally believe that the biggest key in life is finding your passion. It seems that if you can live daily being happy about what you do, there is no such thing as the "Mondays".

If you can live passionately, everything else will fall into place most likely. Financially, but more rewarding, to put yourself in position to help others in need, family, and aquantances.

Surround yourself with people that inspire you and are humble. Also, never settle.

Pursuit of happiness.........
Denise Pargas-Errico
WOW! I feel 100% better and more motivated after hearing this talk. Well done! And, more importantly, Thank You.
Syed Kamran Ali
I am lonely and I don't find myself too much tensed and worried, I am quite fine with this condition. I don't want to have a close friendship with people anymore because whenever I try to do this I have always ended up felling cheated or taken for granted. Done with all the people around, I just want to live my life on my own way.

Once again women are rendered irrelevant!

Interesting though!

"Lessons from the longest study on happiness-." Over 70 year study on over 700 men. Men. This may not at all apply to women.

Why is it hard to maintain relationships?
Why we should maintain them, anyway?

"Is Hypnosis Fake?" Hypnotist stuns What makes a good life? 6 months ago   25:23

Most people think hypnosis is some kind of trick.
Religion calls it sinful. Science has questioned its very existence.
Hypnotist, Laughologist and acclaimed Filmmaker Albert Nerenberg, (Laughology, You Are What You Act) asks: What happens if you run a series of standard hypnotic inductions on a large crowd such as the audience at TEDXQueens.
Is hypnosis fake? Let’s find out. The results are stunning.
This comical presentation may finally provide a street science explanation for how hypnosis actually works.
