What Makes People Satisfied?
What really makes people satisfied with their lives? Amazingly, the secret may lie in a persons ability to handlelifes blows without blame or bitterness. These are the conclusions of a study of 173 men who have been followed since they graduated from Harvard University in the early 1940s. The study, reported in the American Journal of Psychiatry, noted that one potent predictor of well-being was the ability to handle emotional crisis maturely.
