The focus of this research paper is on a lesser-known but extremely pervasive addiction afflicting millions of people today, many who don’t even know it. Whenever we hear the word addiction, we usually think of drugs, alcohol and smoking; but there exists a different kind of addiction known as Destination Addiction. It implies getting addicted to the idea or a belief that possessing a better job, more money, lavish house and expensive car will make us more happy and successful. We keep rushing around and forget to live and be grateful for the present moments of life. Individuals keep chasing happiness through their destinations or goals of life without realizing that happiness is internal to us. Thus, this study is in a growing line of research that attempts to draw relationships between core beliefs of one’s mindset and happiness.
