According to a new study from the University of Essex, the key to succeeding in life is positive thinking. The study included over a thousand students in four different countries, and researchers say those with a more positive, hopeful attitude perform better.
The study suggests that if two students of the same ability took a test, the more hopeful of the two would score higher. Researchers also say that hopeful thinking can increase life span, lower depression, promote cardiovascular health and boost resistance to illness.
