Your success depends on the kind of people you surround yourself with. And most – from your wife.
A study recently published by Carnegie Mellon University shows that spouses can greatly influence the decisions you make.
Scientists came to this conclusion after studying 163 married couples. Each partner was given a choice – to solve a simple puzzle or compete for a prize. Those who had the support of a partner tended to fight for the prize.
They also have better relationships, career advancement, mental well-being and tend to be happier couples.
Perhaps the best proof of this are the most famous couples in our world today. Barack and Michelle Obama, Mark Zuckerberg and Pricilla Chan, Jay-Z and Beyoncé. All of them confirm that their success would not have been possible without the support of a partner.
“Obviously I couldn’t have done anything without Michelle. I count on her in so many ways every day.”
You may be skeptical about marriage, but the support of the closest person is worth a lot.
This not only makes you more successful, but also happier and more grateful for your accomplishments.
