By Reversing the Formula!
Don’t you just love being around and dealing with positive and happy people. Do you ever wonder their secret?
Shawn Achor – is the winner of over a dozen distinguished teaching awards at Harvard University, where he delivered lectures on positive psychology in the most popular class at Harvard.
He is also the CEO of Good Think Inc., a Cambridge-based consulting firm which researches positive outliers — people who are well above average — to understand where human potential, success and happiness intersects.
The social norm that we were led to believe was – work hard, be successful, and that will lead to happiness.
Shawn has shown that if happiness is on the other side of success you never get there because as you reach various milestones/bars you set, then you create new ones because you’re never satisfied.
What if you reverse the process to gain the happiness advantage? Want to see the kinds of things that will help you create happiness, help kick that dopamine in to create more energy, become more resilient, be more productive, active, intelligent and better at sales and getting results!!!
