Those who enjoy life more likely to be happy at work

In today's newspaper i have read this article. How true it is. If a person is happy himself and enjoy life, then only he would be happy at work too. Most of us, keep our work as first priority, family as second and ourselves as last priority, though it should be reversed. Own self should be the first priority in life. If myself is not happy and content, then i would not be able to keep my family happy, and finally my work life also would not be great. If I am happy myself, and able to take care of my family, then but of course, the positivity would reflect in my work as well, and i would be more successful on my work front.

The secret to satisfaction at work lies in people’s happiness with their own lives, according to a new study.

The Wright State University study, a review of previous studies on the subject, found that people who are unhappy in life are unlikely to find satisfaction in their work.

"We used studies that assessed these factors at two time points, so that we could better understand the causal links between job satisfaction and life satisfaction,” said psychologist Nathan Bowling who led the meta-analysis. “If people are satisfied at work, does this mean they will be more satisfied and happier in life overall? Or is the causal effect the opposite way around?” Bowling and colleagues reviewed 223 studies that investigated the link between job and life satisfaction and looked at sub-dimensions of job satisfaction, which included satisfaction with the work itself, supervision, coworkers, pay and promotion.

They examined the relationship between the subjects’ happiness, or “subjective well-being,” and overall job satisfaction and found a positive link between the satisfaction in job and life.
