Wednesday Wisdom

Martin Seligman, the father of Positive Psychology says that for a person to be truly happy and live a meaningful life, that person must recognize their personal strengths and use these strengths for the greater good. If we are to take Seligman’s advice, we should be spending our time figuring out our personal strengths and not waste our valuable time and life working at jobs we don’t like, grumbling at something we aren’t good at, complaining, and taking us away from doing what we were made to do. If this is the secret of happiness, shouldn’t we all be focusing on our strengths and the positive things we possess?
