The Key to Thriving

If you have been diligently studying how to have a happy life, like I have, you will want to add this one to your notes:
http://www.utexas.edu/features/2008/06/16/resilience/

"According to Steinhardt, whatever inborn traits a person possesses and whatever coping skills he may or may not have gained early in life, most individuals can improve their response to stress by changing the way they think.

Steinhardt defines resilience as the ability to bounce back and fully recover from change and stressful situations. A resilient person is strong and flexible and is able to use adverse life situations as an opportunity for growth."

I believe one key to happiness is reprogramming how you think about adversity.

So, imagine taking apart your brain and emotional system, and put it back together in a logical ideal manner, in a way that will best benefit you.  Ok, now how do you get from where you are now, to that ideal manner.  Proactively work through emotional baggage, to a point where you can think more reasonably toward the subject, and then develop a solution.  Internally develop an emotional toolbox for dealing with hangups and live a freer life.  Do you agree with my concept?  What do you think?
