The positive psychology is the ground for the study considering Self Determination Theory and Goal Setting. The self-determination calls for the inclusion of three important aspects, namely, competence, relatedness, and autonomy. The competence is associated with the mastery levelof the individual; the autonomy refers to the sense of self-control, and the relatedness is associated with the level of social interaction felt or experienced by the individual. The psychological state of the individual is generally determined by various factors, either internal or external.

The paper is mostly oriented towards the positive psychology.

The study in the positive psychology has been the key in understanding the impact of various forms of interventions that are guided towards the improvements of positive aspects in the individuals. The positive psychology is oriented towards providing the users with the ways that can help increase the individual wellbeing and functioning. The theory proposed by Seligman states that there are five aspects for the individual to achieve to well-being and they are having positive emotions, engagement, meaning, relationships, and achievements. As per Seligman, these factors showcase to what extent the individual is oriented towards well-being. However, it has been also suggested that not all these factors are equally valued by every individual and every individual has different orientation towards these values. Moreover, it has been stated that the individual value each of the aspects differently. The individual pursuing meaning in their life is likely to rely on either building better relationship with others or they are likely to focus on focusing on achievements in their life. Therefore, it has been asserted by researchers that not every individual pursue all the aspects equally. Some of the studies concerning the positive psychology have found that the factors discussed above, on one hand where it focuses on the psychological well-being of the individual, on the other hand it also help improve the tangible benefits. The experiments or observations associated with the positive psychology has come to the finding that the individual aspects mentioned above improve the tangible benefits such as the improved relationship in the society, reduction in the level of mortality and effective management of the stress in the individual. If the individual is oriented towards the positive psychology and emotions that are positively boosted then it is likely that the individual will have more meaningful life. They eventually help the individual in having increased ability in handling the difficult situations. The studies have found that if the individual is hugely oriented towards the positive well-being, then it is likely that the individual will face situationof depression if such incident occurs suddenly. The inclusion of well-being improves the individuals’ ability in the reduction of the negative states.
