Psychological Factors That Impact the Success and Happiness in Life

  • Simon S. Mal, Dr. Ronald Mani


Success and happiness usually go hand in hand for us humans. However, we sometimes fail in our understanding of the lack of success in our lives and associate it with sadness and other negative emotions which could disrupt the smooth flow of our lives. As success and happiness are fickle and transient we need to prepare ourselves to better cope with them, the way we deal with success and happiness or the lack of them is dictated by our personality. If we humans could better understand what our specific personality is we can associate our own actions and behaviours to our success and happiness. Some tools such as the Johari window and the Big Five Inventory of personality traits can help us understand ourselves better so we can lead the lives that we aspire to lead.
