The Happiness Advantage: The Seven Principles of Positive Psychology That Fuel Success and Performance at Work

by

Most people want to be successful in life. And of course, everyone wants to be happy. When it comes to the pursuit of success and happiness, most people assume the same formula: if you work hard, you will become successful, and once you become successful, then you'll be happy. The only problem is that a decade of cutting-edge research in the field of positive psychology has proven that this formula is backwards. Success does not beget happiness. Based on the largest study ever conducted on happiness and human potential (a survey conducted by the author of more than 1,600 students), Harvard lecturer Shawn Achor shares seven core principles of positive psychology that each one of us can use to improve our performance, grow our careers, and gain a competitive edge at work. He reveals how happiness actually fuels success and performance, not the other way around. Why? Because when we are happier and more positive we are more engaged, creative, resilient to stress, and productive. The Happiness Advantage will appeal to anyone who wants practical advice on how to be happy and also more successful. Hide synopsis

Great advice well-shared

by saxunltd on Feb 21, 2013

Yes-siree,sir, am I happy! It is great stuff both in these pages and in hearing the audio book, as read by Mr. Achor himself. Love the concepts and how he steers away from the quick remedy feel-good slogan stuff, but instead shows how 'true happiness' is a state of mind that can lead to great things, and how the mind itself can be changed long past our teenage years.
