10 Factors That Affect Happiness

Last year I wrote on The Happiness Guide, in which I discussed about two factors related to staying happy.  One was connectedness and progress (inspired largely by the Zappos book).  Today I want to highlight on few more factors that affect our Happiness which are as follows:

1.) Beliefs
2.) Assumptions
3.) Level of Satisfaction with our personal, professional and social life.
4.) Successes and Failures
5.) Emotional Growth and Stability
6.) Level of Connectedness
7.) Accumulation of Regretful moments in life
8.) Level of forgetfulness (the more you forget bad moments and move the more happy you would be.) and the ability to remember(the more you remember happy moments, the more happy you would be).
9.) Perceived Progress Towards Goals
10.) Content
