Successful psychotherapy requires only a competent therapist and a motivated client. One of the major benefits of successful therapy is increased happiness.

Happiness is desirable in its own right.  But here are some other benefits of happiness you may not know:

-According to actual studies happy people live, on average, 7 1/2 years longer than unhappy people.  And that’s on average.  You may get much more than that.

-Happy people work much better with others.

-Happy people fix problems instead of complain about them.

-Happy people have more energy.

-Happy people are more optimistic.

-Happy people are more motivated.

-Happy people are sick less often.

-Happy people learn faster.  They are, in effect, smarter.

-Happy people worry less about making mistakes and therefore make fewer mistakes.

-Happy people make better decisions.

-Happy people are more attractive to others.  Remember, you don’t attract what you want, you attract what you are.
