Answer: 

Are all types of goals of equal impact

NO

Approach goals are positive goals (I will eat healthy meals)

Avoidance goals are negative (don't eat junk food)

"it turns out that the type of goal or valued life task that you pursue determines whether the pursuit will make you happy" pg 208

It is important to make your goals your own. It needs to fit your personality. When your goal fits your personality it is more likely to increase your happiness.
