Can You Make Yourself Be Happy?

Is happiness a self-fulfilling prophecy? A recent survey found that people who believe happiness can be controlled are more likely to actually be happy. Those who see happiness as out of their control tend to be less happy.

The survey found no difference between men and women, but age is a factor. Happiness seems to decrease from the age of 18 to about 47 when it starts to increase again.
