How to cultivate a positive mindset
According to Ryan Howell, assistant professor of psychology at San Francisco State University:
'No pain, no gain' is the rule when it comes to gaining happiness from increasing our competence at something. People often give up their goals because they are stressful, but we found that there is benefit at the end of the day from learning to do something well. And what's striking is that you don't have to reach your goal to see the benefits to your happiness and well-being.
Many incredibly successful people set a huge goal... and then focus all their attention on the process necessary to achieve that goal.
The goal is most important, but once set, a goal's real importance is to inform the process created and followed to achieve that goal.
Then, once you have a process in place, put all your focus on what your process says you need to do today.
That's how you improve. But that's also how you find additional motivation -- and additional happiness.
Set a goal. Then create a process that helps you learn that new skill or tackle that big challenge. Sure, the effort will be stressful.
But think about the positives.
Every day you will get to feel good about yourself. Even if you never quite achieve everything you set out to achieve, you'll be happier.
what striking is that you don't have to reach your goal to see the benefits to your happiness and well-being.
That means you get to feel better about yourself today -- and you get to feel better about yourself for years to come.

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.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
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!
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.
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!
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
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.
