People are more likely to be happy if they quit a job that makes them miserable, even if they spent years studying to get that job. Why are we prone to make the mistake, give some examples of cases in your life where you’ve committed the mistake?

They also make it because they see quitting as a sure loss, when they have the chance to invest more resources, and possibly recover what they’ve already lost. Taking this risky gamble seems like the right choice for them, because they are allowing the sunk cost to effect what they think their risks going forward are.
Author Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote, “ Unless you try to do something beyond what you already mastered, you will never grow.” Most people are afraid of making mistakes so they stay in their comfort zone. I believe that this statement is true, because making mistakes is how you learn and improve, stepping out of your comfort zone can lead to more friends and better experiences, and if you don’t try new things, you might miss out on something you love!

In college, you may fail some tests and quizzes here and there but you must remember never to give up. It’s important to know that you’re not doing this just for yourself but for others. Something I like to tell myself every time I feel like giving up is to think about how many people’s lives I will make an impact on with my career. As an occupational therapist, I’m going to make a difference in someone’s life and help them enjoy life even more.

Nicholas A. Roes writes about the road to recovery in “A License to be Happy.” In this article, Nicholas tells his readers of the main denominators in the “ingredients of happiness.” The ingredients are known as optimism, gratitude, forgiveness and mutually satisfying relationships. He goes on to explain that one of the biggest obstacles in most people’s day-to-day lives is the constant thought of never being happy and end up supporting the idea that others can obtain happiness. Instead of seeing what we have, they often avoid looking at the good in their life and lean more on the negative aspect of their life. Roes states, “Clients need to give some serious thought to the specifics of what happiness would look like for them.” Depending on
As a man myself with various responsibilities I often get tired of just taking care of everyone else 's needs except for my own.

I was astonished that all the other were “not-good-enough”. I felt underappreciated, I decided to do only what I was expected to removing all additional activities and ideas related to my job. I felt a void in me growing and I started to look for a solution and decided to stick to the rules and invest in me because this will give me a sense of purpose and later a better path to achieve my dreams.
