Happiness Advantage : The Seven Principles Of Positive Psychology That Fuel Success And Performance At Work by Shawn Achor

INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER – An engaging, deeply researched guide to thriving in an increasingly stressful and negative world–the inspiration behind one of the most popular TED Talks ever.

“Powerful [and] charming… A book suitable for anyone… The philosophies presented in this book are undoubtedly the finest foundations to construct a happy and successful life.”–Medium

The idea that happiness is found in our ability to change rather than in the belief that change is unnecessary.

Our commonly accepted equation for success is flawed. Conventional wisdom suggests that once we achieve success, happiness will follow. We believe that once we secure our dream job, get that well-deserved promotion, or shed those stubborn extra pounds, happiness will naturally ensue. However, scientific research reveals a different truth: happiness is the key to success, not the other way around. Studies demonstrate that happy individuals are more productive, creative, and adept at problem-solving compared to their unhappy counterparts. Additionally, positive people tend to have better physical health, lower stress levels, and more fulfilling social connections. Utilizing original research, including one of the largest happiness studies ever conducted, as well as insights from boardrooms and classrooms spanning forty-two countries, Shawn Achor unveils how we can reprogram our brains for optimism and positivity to gain the happiness advantage in our careers, personal lives, and even our health. His strategies encompass:

– The Tetris Effect: training our minds to recognize patterns of possibility so that we can seize opportunities all around us

– Social Investment: reaping the rewards of a strong support network

– The Ripple Effect: spreading positive change within our teams, companies, and families.

Compelling, optimistic, and timely, The Happiness Advantage showcases how minor shifts in our mindset and habits can yield significant gains at work, home, and beyond.
