What would you pursue if you knew you could not fail? Regardless of the obstacles you may feel are in your way, science has proven that having something to work toward and actively pursuing that goal can actually benefit your health. Engaging in a passion, whether you’re an Olympian or just starting your first office job, can help you foster stronger psychological well-being and make you more hopeful, grateful and happier.
So how does someone really follow through on their dreams? In order to achieve lengthier pursuits, a 2012 study published in the Journal of Organizational Behavior found that focusing on specific, shorter goals was key to achieving a long-term goal. And by cultivating willpower, you’re more likely to reach your objectives and improve your overall sense of self. In other words, accomplishing Olympic-sized dreams is possible to do all on your own — and your well-being will thank you for it.
