Ilchi Lee has long said that keeping a positive attitude in the face of adversity is the key to achieving personal success. It is the most effective way for a person to overcome the obstacles in their daily lives and attain their life dreams.
Now, a new study out of Kent University in the UK has confirmed these benefits. The researchers found that participants who looked for the positive aspects of stressful events and used humor to cope with stress felt more satisfied and fulfilled at the end of each day.
For the study, researchers asked 149 participants to keep a daily diary of the things that made them feel stressed, how they dealt with these issues and how satisfied they were at the end of the day. The results showed that positive people were much happier with their lives.
The results may not be that surprising given the number of motivational stories Lee has about triumphing over adversity by keeping a positive attitude. Negativity and anxiety only serve to slow a person down. However, with positivity, hope and trust in one's self, there is no limit to what a person can achieve in their life.
