The Pursuit of Happiness Drives Excellence & Mastery


In his book, A Prescription For Happiness (, Dr. Mark Rowe explains that in order to be truly happy we need to pursue good health in five key areas:

  1. Physical Health (diet, exercise and Health IQ)
  2. Psychological Health (stress, distress and destress)
  3. Relationship Health (you become who you interact with)
  4. Emotional Health (is your EQ affecting your IQ)
  5. Legacy Health (are you achieving your potential)

What’s unique about Dr. Rowe’s happiness philosophy is the notion that the pursuit of permanent happiness is an itch that drives many of us to become overachievers, to excel in life. Attaining permanent happiness would be catastrophic. It would stop us in our tracks, ending our quest for excellence and mastery in life. The very fact that permanent happiness is unattainable is actually a blessing in disguise. Food for thought, my friends.
