Are you the best person that you can be? It’s a simple question, but, its consequences are far reaching. Why?
Because making a commitment to self-improvement puts us in control of our lives – and a sense of control is a cornerstone of positivity. By taking action to be the best person we can be, we assert our right to judge ourselves. At the same time, we deny the right of others to judge us.

Is your desire for instant gratification preventing you from finding happiness in your 60s or better? Are you shopping for positivity in all the wrong places? These are the questions that will guide today’s discussion.

Happiness and positivity are essential to every aspect of getting the most from life after 60. This is why we are always searching for ways to be happier. When we feel happy, we are more likely to get out and engage with the world – and the more we do, the happier we become. Do you agree?
