International Wellbeing Survey – Results

Saturday, January 24th, 2009

MTV conducted a survey of 5,200 young people between 8-34 in fourteen countries to explore their sense of wellbeing  and how they see the future.  The UK came 6th, behind India, Sweden, USA, Denmark & France.  One of their key finding was that the people in the developing world were more optimistic and less stressed about the future. 

I think that this is a key finding.  If you think / feel that you are on a journey then tomorrow can always bring surprises and interest.   You never know what lies around the next bend.  If however, you feel that you have arrived and you have settled, then change is likely to be a bad thing.

I have always believed that my live is a journey and I aim to make sure that I am still exploring and learning till they nail down the coffin lid!  Amidst the chaos in the world markets at present is uncertainty, but also unprecedented opportunity and challenge and the space to make a difference.

Now is the time to feel excited and do something different!
