A crucial point of time in every person’s life is when he or she stands at the threshold of embarking upon a new phase of life-choosing the academic field, which in turn entails the lifelong career he or she has to endure, slog through and build a life and living upon. When I was confronted with this vexing dilemma, my choice of the Humanities stream, with respectable grades (more than enough to guarantee me a seat in the Science stream at school) was met with a somewhat inordinate amount of surprise, derision and even pity by a few people.

Positive psychology is described as the scientific study of what makes life most worth living (Peterson, 2008). It is the study of behavior, feelings and human thoughts which strive to focus on human strengths rather than weaknesses. The focus of positive psychology is on building the good in life instead of repairing the bad, and taking the lives of people up to enhance it or make it “better” instead of focusing on moving individuals who are struggling up to a “normal” (Peterson, 2008).
