It’s human nature to want to know how to find happiness. Take a look at 8 Factors That Contribute To Emotional and Mental Stability – these can help improve your outlook on life.
This past week, we had a bonus session for our Daniel Plan study group on Happiness and Contentment. Did you know that happiness depends 50% on your genetics, 40% on your internal state of mind, and 10% on life’s circumstances? That means we have control of at least 40% how we feel.
Our special speaker was the Community Pastor for Grace Community Church. He talked about an eye-opening study on happiness performed by Duke University that found 8 factors contribute greatly to emotional and mental stability:
These points are all worth thinking about – I know I have experienced all 8 of these at some point in my life. Just think if everyone in the world had access to these 8 items and made a conscious decision to live each of these out on a daily basis, how different would our outlook on life be?
I highly recommend printing this list out and posting it somewhere that you can see it on a daily basis as a reminder that we can control 40% of our happiness. Click here to download this list.

I love #2, been there, done that but luckily I have moved on. How can you face your present and future if you are keeping yourself in the past! By the way, thanks for your post, it’s truly helpful.
