Hey guys! So I like to read. It makes me feel like I am staying smart by filling my brain with awesome knowledge. I’m not an avid reader, but I do enjoy the occasional sit down with a great book. On this blog, I am going to do “book reports” (sounds so schoolish huh?) so you guys can find some great book to dive into! They could be any type of genre that I feel like reading at the moment.
So this book report is on a book that I ABSOLUTELY LOVED! It is called “The Happiness Advantage” by Shawn Achor (a former professor at Harvard). This book teaches positive psychology principles that link happiness and success in our daily lives, and also in our careers. (DISCLAIMER: I like positive psychology books a lot!)
Have you ever heard the phrase “when mom isn’t happy, nobody is happy”? Well as true as that is we are forgetting something… this applies to EVERYONE, not just our beloved mothers! Our behavior, and the way we look at life can affect those we come into contact with everyday. When we are angry or upset, it puts others on edge, and there may be less productivity and success. When we exude happiness and positive vibes, others will feel that happiness too and are more likely to be successful.
What has happened to us does not have to determine what is going to happen to us, so the mindset switch from negativity to positivity can work wonders!
This book is all about giving great tips and trick on how to be a more positive, influential, and successful person in your workplace AND your life! Instead of the common thought “success first, happiness second,” this book teaches that it should be changed to “happiness first, success second.”
