To live a life rich in authenticity, compassion and positive emotional experiences, leading psychologists have concluded in study after study that maturing beyond egocentric preoccupation is essential. Most recently, this has been demonstrated in the sustained pivot of positive psychologists (Seligman & Csikszentmihalyi, 2000) toward the cultivation of intrinsic motivation, social concern, and various character strengths and virtues.
