Explore the science and research behind individual success and learn practical ways of reaching your goals at work and in life.

Create an action plan that helps you achieve career success and a happier life

What predicts success in life? And how can you achieve the success you desire?

On this course, alongside experts from the University of Michigan, you’ll explore decades of scientific research on what the most successful people do differently.

You’ll discover why your IQ isn’t necessarily a reliable predictor of success and why many commonly accepted beliefs are often limiting when it comes to achieving your goals.

By the end of this course, you’ll understand how small, achievable actions will help you exceed your goals faster and you’ll be able to create a plan of action to get there.

What topics will you cover?

Although this course is based on the science of success, you will learn many practical ideas that you can apply to your own life immediately, particularly in three main areas:

  • Getting better results at work (and school)
  • Achieving career success (however you define success)
  • Enjoying a meaningful, happy, and healthy life

You will also learn what predicts success in life. You will also create a personalized action plan which will help you succeed.
