How lucky am I?
Every single day resourceful, confident and inspiring clients remind and teach me things I’m excited about. Shawn Achor‘s TEDTalk came up in a session the other day. Shawn is arguable the world’s leading positive psychology expert and bestselling author of the ‘The Happiness Advantage’. Shawn has won many teaching awards at Harvard University and today is one of the world’s leading experts on the connection between happiness and success. His TEDTalk has more than 20 million views and he has lectured in more than 45 countries in the world in his field of expertise.
Years ago I started my coaching journey with NeuroScience as my major and what Shawn shares excites me as research is now backing up what we believed then about happiness.
Millennials have made the ‘Happiness’ topic not just trendy but more important a conscious consideration in today’s’ noisy environment.
Research shows that 90% of your long term happiness is predicted by the way your brain processes the world.
Super exciting to know, is that the brain can be wired and rewired – just like your muscles.
This means YOU can determine YOUR happiness regardless of your uncontrollable outside world.
