The small business is big believers in the notion that anyone can do anything if they put their mind to it; and as a result, believe that ambition is a critical driver in the pursuit of happiness and career success.
Gold Vibes agree with a recent study that found people who set ambitious goals are happier and more fulfilled. The study rolled out by the University of California, made a comparison between people who set ambitious goals to those who set goals that were more conservative. The result indicated that people who set ambitious goals are happier long term than those who chose the conservative goals. Gold Vibes have commented on the results of the study and highlight that because it is common for people to expect a specific result when they set a goal, a conservative goal will result in a moderate outcome, whereas an ambitious goal with the result in more success.
Gold Vibes recommend for individuals looking to increase their happiness levels is to set goals focused on personal growth; studies have found that intrinsic goals, e.g. personal relationships, or personal development will result in higher levels of happiness as opposed to extrinsic goals based on money or status. Also, Gold Vibes have released three key components that are required for goals to be happy:
Autonomy – individuals need to feel that they are in control of their behaviour and goals
Competence – to be happy, one must have the necessary skills to achieve the goal
Relatedness – the goal needs to be connected to individual hopes and aspirations

The start-up is challenging individuals to leave comfort zones and help their advancement by offering mentoring to build confidence and improve the acquisitions of necessary skills.
