Authentic Happiness: Final Post

The Good Life and The Meaningful Life: The last paragraph in the book sums up Seligman’s findings and philosophy. It sounds simple, though it’s not always easy to do, but we can always work toward it to find meaning and purpose in our lives: “The good life consists in deriving happiness by using your signature strengths every day in the main realms of living [work, play, love]. The meaningful life adds one more component: using these same strengths to forward knowledge, power, or goodness (p. 260).”
