The Happiness Advantage by Shawn Achor
If it’s people that will ultimately make the difference in the world then the key to a brighter future is brilliant people. It’s as simple as that!
And to be brilliant, successful and happy is not about necessarily changing who you are. Its about figuring out what your strengths are so you can use them more often. Understanding what works for you so you can make the most of what you’ve got. You see the world needs people to come alive. When you’re feeling brilliant you get more things done, quicker and life seems a whole lot easier.
Your goal is to transform the way you think about yourself and your life, inspiring you to make the most of what you’ve been given. I want you to get into good habits that will serve you well throughout your life. And it’s applicable to everyone, whatever your situation, background and experience. If you put the principles into practice it might just change your life…forever!

  3. Take personal responsibility

  5. Bounceback-ability
  6. Play to your strengths
