10 Apr Happiness and others – a nice quote
As I hope you’ve realised by now, when we (here at The Happiness Institute) talk about happiness what we’re really talking about is the effort to maximise positive emotions based on proven coaching strategies from the science of positive psychology.
Well, Chris Peterson (one of the leaders in Positive Psychology) once summed up the field in three words…he said “other people matter”.
At The Happiness Institute we have no doubt that happiness is not just about ourselves but just as much about what we do for and how we relate to others. One of the core components of all our work is based around helping people build positive relationships.
Accordingly, I thought you might find the following quote of interest…
The duty of helping one’s self in the highest sense involves the helping of one’s neighbors. – Samuel Smiles, 1812-1904, Scottish-born Self-Help Author
Happiness is not just feeling good; it’s also about doing good!
