The Happy Secret to Better Work

 

IN A NUTSHELL…

  • Our external world predicts only 10% of our happiness. How our brain processes our external world determines 90% of our long-term happiness.
  • Only 25% of job success is predicted by IQ. However, 75% of job success is determined by your optimism levels, your social support and your ability to see stress as a challenge and not as a threat.
  • Your brain functions better, if its happy 🙂 Dopamine, an organic chemical that floods your brain when you are happy, it “turns on” all the learning centers in your brain, making you more adaptable and receptive.
  • WRONG FORMULA FOR SUCCESS: Work harder, so can be more successful and be happy.

REAL FORMULA FOR SUCCESS:

Be happy, so I can experience more success.

HOW DO I GET HAPPY? 

For 21 days you can train your brain to be happy, by doing the following:

  • Find 3 things to be grateful for each day (it trains your brain to look for the positive, instead of the negative)
  • Write about 1 positive experience you have had in the last 24 hours (your brain will relive the memory)
  • Exercise (it teaches your brain that your behavior matters)
  • Meditate (helps your brain get over our cultural hyperactivity and focus on one task)
  • Perform random acts of kindness

So what are you waiting for? GET HAPPY!
