Achievement as a Pathway to Well-Being

Dr. Martin Seligman, a pioneer in the field of positive psychology identified Achievement as a foundational building block that contributes to a flourishing life in his PERMA model of well-being. 

Achievement helps to build self-esteem and strengthens self-efficacy, our belief that we can effectively meet the challenges of life.  Creating and working toward goals helps us anticipate and build hope for the future. Past successes make us feel more confident and optimistic about future attempts.  Having explicit goals in life, even small ones, and making efforts to achieve them are important to well-being and happiness.
