The first four Keys of Happiness are: self-worth, gratitude, positive life framing, and internal locus of control. The fifth Key is:

5. Lifelong Learning

The
fifth key to happiness is to adopt an attitude of lifelong learning.
Your goal each day should be to learn something new. As you encounter
new people and situations, look for the wisdom that can be extracted
from them. Particularly in areas where we believe we made a “mistake,”
seek to uncover the lesson. There is always a lesson to be learned.

When
we believe we know all there is to know, that is when we are in
dangerous territory. When we think we know all, then we stop learning
from the people and situations in our path. When we stop looking for
the lessons, we begin to blame things external to ourselves for the
pain we experience instead of seeking to learn whatever we need to know
for our life’s journey.
