A Bigger Impact On Happiness Than Winning the Lottery, and Other Benefits of Creating a Life List
Here are some of the many benefits that you'll receive by creating a life list and taking the necessary steps to achieve it:
- Studies done in the field of positive psychology show that setting significant and meaningful goals--which is the definition of a life list--will have a greater positive impact on your happiness than winning $1,000,000 in the lottery (on pages 17 - 20 you'll discover the scientific evidence that shows that a life list can make you happier than winning the lottery).
- It's not death we fear, but getting to the end with regrets. A life list is a mechanism for leading a no-regrets life (Exercise 15 will show you how to use regrets to your advantage).
- Having a life list and working towards achieving it puts you in the driver's seat, giving you a sense of self-responsibility which increases feelings of self-efficacy and self-worth (discover what the world's foremost expert on self-esteem has to say about this on page 28).
- Anyone can be remarkable, by setting a remarkable goal (as part of the "How to Live Your Best Life" system you'll get "Idea Book" with 10,000 ideas for your life list, as well as "Guidebook of Dreams" with 1000 dream-triggering questions; use these ideas to set remarkable goals).
- Creating a life list will allow you to form a clear vision of what it is that you want from life (Part II contains ten exercises which will allow you to identify what it is that you want from life).
- Even if things temporarily go astray, a life list gives you a point in the horizon to focus on so that you can get back on track (discover an analogy to correcting your course while sailing on page 45).
- A life list will help you to take up the challenge of transforming your daydreams into goals you can accomplish (discover how in Chapter Twenty).
- A happiness enhancing strategy recommended by positive psychologists is to cultivate optimism by thinking and writing about your best possible future. A life list is a great tool for doing this. In addition, studies show that optimism is health enhancing and prolongs life. (In Exercise 11 you'll be imagining and writing about your best possible future.)
- Time and energy are the coins of your life. If you simply spend your coins, they're gone. However, by creating a life list you'll be investing your coins wisely, which will bring you a positive return in the future (find out how to turn your life list into your best investment on page 44).
