215 Words1 Page
From a global perspective, positive psychology centers on the positive aspects of human development. It is a fact that as a human grows and matures, the person faces the same challenges that every developing human encounters. However, although there are many who are at the point in their lives where their efforts and labors are recognized, the recognition often does not support the person (Seligman, 2009). The author suggests that every human should place him or her on the path to the “good life.” This does not necessarily mean wealth or intangible assets but rather inner happiness and peace (p. 45). Seligman’s notion of the good life speaks shifting one’s focus on what is truly important such as health, security, and most of all happiness.
