Dream big to live happily

The moral of the story is don't sell yourself short. Aim high: Cho.


Ians August 25, 2011

LONDON: Ambitious people with high goals lead a more satisfactory life than those who have low expectations and thus often end up leading a miserable life, a study has found.

In her research, University of California professor Cecile Cho set up two experiments to compare people who set ambitious goals to those who set conservative goals, Daily Mail reported.

They focused on situations in which goals were achieved, and measured the level of satisfaction with the achieved goals.
Cho found people, who set high goals for themselves were happier in the long run.

"The moral of the story is don't sell yourself short. Aim high," said Cho.

I would kind of disagree this study/outcome. What if one always dream for big, strives hard too but for reason on most of the occasion he/she fails to achieve the goal as it was over-ambitious, so the dejection of a failure piles up.....and ultimately makes the person's life more miserable...

Any comments???

They had to conduct a study to figure this out? Next time you want to know something obvious, just ask me
