"react" to results, then what exactly is it doing?

ex: I'm going for a job interview all happy. But I don't get the job - still happy. Go for more job interviews - still happy. Still don't get those jobs either - still happy.


So what is my state of happiness actually doing for me if I'm not getting the jobs I'm going to the interviews for?

..thing. and messed it all up in the translation (which always makes me think of Raw--"and then he said 'goony googoo'...and he had a gi joe stuck up his ass.." *overenthusiastic headnod/smile*)

but to answer the original question--nothing different. why risk fucking up the achieved happiness?

lightworks was talking about the "motivating" aspects of a "happy" attitude.

I realize some could look at my job search hypothetical scenario's and say: "that job searcher's happiness is keeping him or her continuing to search for jobs in the face of repeated failure." so I wanted to come back and say, yeah that's a good quality of always being happy - to be never discouraged/always comeback no matter how many fails - but I was getting at if the person is always happy, then he or she isn't being perceptive about why he or she keeps not getting the jobs he or she is going for.

So I wanted to clarify that, yes happy all the time would make a person too ignorant of why things may be going wrong. However on the other hand, too upset about things going wrong could discourage a person and make a person quit too soon.

So there should be a mid-point where a person can be a good amount of encouraged, a good amount of perceptive about things that should be changed/improved/worked on/and very little discouraged when things need to be improved/worked on/corrected.

When things are good, I am less motivated and slip. It's when my back is to the wall I do my best work.
