A research that was conducted in 2000 shows us that adults are very optimistic. If one stops to think about it, materialistic things are not everything that the world has to offer. The most beautiful things are images, places, people and smell.
More than half of the individuals who participated in this research as examinees, stated that they described themselves as being joyful individuals. More than one quarter of them said that small things are the ones that are able to cheer them up.
Scientists have been able to conclude that true happiness lies in small surprises. Eighty-two percent of the examinees mentioned that the best things in life are the ones that they didn’t expect to happen to them at all.
