The Science-Backed Proof That More Success Won't Lead to Greater Levels of Happiness

Every time your brain has a success, you change the goalpost of what success looked like. You got 50 followers, now you want 100. You got 100, now you want 200.

So, if success is a prerequisite to happiness and the goalpost of success keeps moving, then your brain will never get there.

Train Your Brain to be Happier

Train Your Brain to be Happier

You can rewire your brain with just 2 minutes a day by writing down 3 new things that you're grateful for every day for 21 days.

Doing so reprograms your brain, allowing it to work more optimistically and more successfully. After 21 days, the brain starts to retain a pattern of scanning the world not for the negative, but for the positive first.

Dopamine, which floods into your system when you're positive, has two functions. Not only does it make you happier, it turns on all of the learning centers in your brain allowing you to adapt to the world in a different way.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
