AmAre formula is meant to be descriptive and preventive, but not predictive. That is, it quantifies the current situation, and the strengths and weaknesses we should be aware of and act upon.
Regardless of what the number says, we are always responsible, here and now, for our happiness, so a high result means we should keep building our happiness as we have successfully done so far, and a lower result means there are aspects to act upon to improve our lives.
One of the formulas strengths is its unlikeness to reach One, the perfect score, or Zero. This formula is useful so we can improve our awareness about the situation so far, and build a better present. Once the formula served its purposes, we can move on.

You likely live joyfully everyday: no matter the ups and downs we all have, you can make the best of them for yourself and the people around you.
If values are correct, you are achieving the maximum level of SWB, which you can sustain by living joyfully.
