The Science of Happiness and Well Being?
By Kevin Hogan
Connections to be Found?
There is no real reported connection between "life satisfaction" and how
much people hurt.
There is no real reported connection between
"life satisfaction" and how well rested one is.
There is no real reported
connection between how "intellectually engaged" one is and their
reported "life satisfaction."
And you learn that People answer and average out to 7, using a 1 - 10 scale remarkably often.
I did have a thought come to mind, so I checked my hypothesis.
Does Beauty Affect Happiness and Well-Being?
People from 10 countries of the 155 surveyed averaged 8.0 or higher.
I checked to see what percentage of Miss Universe winners
came from those 6% of the countries.
8/30 since 1980.
Probably a coincidence and just a passing thought...
Now we return to the original question we posed,
"why do the survey?"
To help social policy in the UK.
But Rwanda reports 7.8 and the UK reports 7.4.
Clearly, surveys, based on everything you just read, are not the
way to go for "helping" make decisions in Social Policy.
I suspect that less than 10% of UK residents would prefer living
in any of the countries that score 8.0 or higher even with genes
that favor Miss Universe winners.
I'd normally stop here and discuss this point because it is interesting
....but there is an even BIGGER AHA waiting around the corner that
you want to see...next week.
Lifestorms: Erasing the 12 Obstacles to Achievement.
Overcoming the Paradox of Love, Power, Money and Happiness
Why life so often brings you exactly what you
don’t want…and how self sabotage hides around every corner. Some
people have guessed at the seemingly bizarre nature of self
sabotage. Guess no more. Self sabotage is very real in everyone’s
life, completely devastating and 100% resolvable.
You’ve probably noticed that…
The more you argue for your point of view, the
less you are heard.
That which you fear the most today are often best
for you in the long run.
The more you need money, the harder it is to
The more you need that person the more they move away from
The more open you are about your vulnerability the
more invulnerable you become.
The more you protest, the more you get what you
What you may not know is that we need at least six fundamental
needs met to succeed in every aspect of life.
Connection to Others
If any of the six are not being met beginning at any point early in
life, negative life patterns develop that soon shift from
“clay” to “stone,” in the human mind. These negative life patterns
actually helped us cope early in life with the areas of life when we
didn’t have our fundamental human needs met…Later they become the
core of self sabotage in every aspect of life…stopping us from
getting what we want and literally making everything we don’t
Over the course of your life you have noticed some recurring
patterns and themes. Just as the money finally appears, something
breaks and you have to have it repaired. Just as you are becoming
happy, something big goes wrong. Just as you are getting on
track, you get derailed. Just as you get your promotion, you get
laid off. You find the girl or guy of your dreams and then she slips
away. The worst? You have the break of your life sitting in your lap
and you blow the sale, the interview, the meeting. The chance of a
lifetime (you think) and a lifestorm hits and it is all gone because
of one or two wrong words at a critical moment or even an
interrupting phone call. It’s gone. The girl, the money, the
power, the job, the career, the happiness.
You’ve wanted to
get your life on track and on purpose for so long. You’ve set your
goals and have come up short. You learn the techniques and tools of
communication and even influence but still it always seems to
happen. You try and make all the changes that could ever be made in
a lifetime and then…BOOM! Another lifestorm.
What causes all of this? Does God have some kind of perverted
sense of humor that puts the candy in your hand until it comes to
your mouth and then he makes it vanish?
No, not at all.
12 Specific Patterns
There are 12 specific life patterns that cause virtually all
of these events to happen. 12 very predictable negative life paths
that you can and will repeat and will repeat over and over until you
break the pattern. Once you break the pattern and construct a new
pattern in place of the old, you literally change your life (or that
of your clients). The fewest number of negative life patterns I’ve
seen anyone have are four. The most 11.
Could it be true that life is both this “complex and yet simple?”
That if you just change a few patterns that everything will be OK?
Life is never easy. But the negative life patterns are impossible
to overcome... yes impossible... without stopping the
lifestorms that result from the 12 negative life patterns and then
replacing them with specific new patterns. Every now and then
someone makes something happen by accident. They know what these
negative recurring patterns are and figure out a solution without
having had the manual to do so. And it’s been through observing the
people who figured it out that the everyone else can stop the
How Does it all Begin?
What are these lifestorms and how did they get here? How do they
emerge from the patterns? Why do they rip your future away from us
just as you are ready to make a quantum leap into your the future?
How do you stop the madness and turn it all around?
you are a child. Age 5. Your Mom and Dad divorce. Your father
leaves. Forever. Your grandfather tries to take your father’s place
and fill in “the gaps.” Shortly thereafter he dies. Your mother
continues to work two jobs to support you, your brothers and your
sisters. Just as you begin to like them… babysitters come and go
over the next couple of years. Finally you reach adolescence and you
have your first love.
She/he is perfect for you. She likes you. You hold on tight. You
call them all the time. Several times per day. Everyone else that
you ever loved has come and gone or just not been there. You’ve
basically been on your own with no one stable in your life and have
learned how tough life is by yourself. You’re going to make sure
that this person doesn’t leave. But they do. They got constricted.
They didn’t feel loved. They felt smothered. They sought advice from
others and eventually followed it. You were that kind of person who
didn’t trust others they told the one you loved. (Note: Many people
want to be called all the time and have an extreme amount of
attention, however most people who have this life pattern do not
gravitate to those people.)
Finally, “not being able to breathe,” they leave you. You are
crushed. Again someone has abandoned you. Everyone leaves. Parents,
grandparents, babysitters…and now the love of your life. You have
the life pattern of abandonment cut with a chisel into the stone of
your mind. This pattern will repeat itself over and over again until
you recognize it, break it and reshape a new pattern into your mind.
Your mind knows no other way to act or how to deal with the feelings
inside. Relationship after relationship is destined to go up in
smoke until this abandonment pattern is resolved and repaired and
Break the Chains
And, this is not the only one of the 12 patterns that leads to
relationship troubles. In fact, some patterns lead to chaos in
relationships, jobs, the pursuit of happiness and all aspects of
life. Without correcting these 12 patterns little else will help you
break the chains that keep you from having the love you deserve.
In the case of the abandonment pattern, which you may or may
not experience, you find that it also causes specific behaviors in
the area of money. For example, there are two common patterns with
money that stem from abandonment. The first is the workaholic who
saves every penny possible so that no matter who leaves or what
happens in life there will always be something to ride out the next
lifestorm. The second is that the person simply repeats the pattern
with money and spends themselves to bankruptcy on things that can’t
possibly help their future. They buy more car than they need. They
buy a house they can’t afford. They buy toys that do nothing but
cost more money to maintain.
The Patterns are Predictable
Like the other 11 patterns, the pattern of abandonment has a plotted
course that is predictable in all facets of life. It is
etched in stone and it won’t change until it is sandblasted away. No
amount of positive thinking will erase it. It will take far more
than simple affirmations or a couple of visualizations. It takes a
master plan that, while not difficult to implement, takes some time
to reset itself after sandblasting away the old patterns.
when you said something like, “My parents did that to me and I will
never do that to anyone.” That’s one of the three ways you
react/respond to negative life patterns. You polarize consciously or
unconsciously from the things that were “done to you.” This could be
a positive reaction but it probably isn’t optimal. Repeating the
pattern of your parents/elders/caretakers is another common
reaction/response, but again, it probably isn’t optimal. On the
continuum of possible behaviors there is usually a point in the
middle that is where you really will be able to overcome the
negative patterns and reset new successful patterns that will stop
Perhaps you know someone who displays the characteristics of the
abandonment life pattern. Perhaps it is you. Recognition of the
pattern is the first step toward eliminating self sabotage and
staying out of lifestorms. The next step is to identify how you
would like to feel and behave instead of your current feelings and
If you are feeling a paralyzing fear of abandonment…the feeling
that this person too will leave you, what do you want them to feel
and what do you want to feel? Both parts are important. You
certainly don’t want them to feel smothered. You don’t want them to
feel mistrusted as that mistrust will usually move the person to the
behavior you mistrust them of. You want to feel secure and you want
to behave in such a way that does not make yourself appear to not
trust the one you care about. All of these pictures are the
beginning of setting the new pattern. You must determine what you
want to feel and how you want to behave. You want to determine what
message you want to send the one you care about.
In the case of dealing with money with this life pattern, the
same process is critical. What do you want to feel about money? What
do you want to do with your money? Do you want to buy $5,000 toys
and expensive cars or do you want to invest in your self and your
future through education and investment? How will you benefit if you
do these things by choice instead of repeating the self sabotaging
behaviors of the past? How do you want to feel about money? What
thoughts do you want to think about money?
Isolate the Trigger
Once the pattern has been identified and you recognize how you feel
and what you think while you are “in the pattern” you then want to
isolate the trigger. In the future you want this trigger to
trigger the adaptive life pattern that you are going to construct in
its place. You will need to do quite a bit of mental imagery and
visualization along with triggering the new pattern. You will want
to vividly experience the new pattern and the new thoughts and
feelings of the new pattern.
You also will then need to cultivate
a set of specific actions that will physically move you forward in
the new life pattern. At the end of the day you will record your
feelings, thoughts and actions that you had in response to the
triggers that you experienced that day. Usually within 45 days you
can have mostly eradicated the old self sabotaging behaviors and
have installed the new patterns that move you in the direction of
your goals, your dreams.
Of course there are 11 other life patterns in addition to that of
abandonment. There are patterns that include a general mistrust of
others, patterns that create behaviors where you put yourself second
to everyone else. Other patterns emerge where you might believe you
are entitled to things instead of deserving of them. All of these
are examples of patterns that give birth to self-sabotage and are
roadblocks that keep virtually everyone from achieving their dreams.
To discover which of the 12 patterns you have been the victim
of and how to eliminate self sabotage in your life (or those of your
clients) you can pick up the CD program and workbook, Lifestorms:

It happens to
everyone. There are 12 (and only 12) nongenetic blueprints for
self-sabotage at the unconscious level. That's it. I had 9 of
them. No kidding. It took time to knock off each of these forms
of self-sabotage. (A lot of time for 9!) I've never met anyone with
less than 2 Lifestorms and it only takes one to take the life
out of life, to take a would be success story into a lifelong
destiny in the hamster wheel.
Each month, for myself, I
review ALL 12 of the patterns and eliminate any residue of
self-sabotage that exists. Because self-sabotage is nonconscious,
no one is aware of it when it is engaged!
The benefit of being able to
be in check is being in charge. When the unconscious mind is
quelled then the conscious mind can move forward and achieve.
