Happiness Advantage With Shawn Achor

Episode 1 of 1

In this special, positive psychology expert Shawn Achor demonstrates how to use the latest scientific research on happiness to find success in every aspect of our lives. Most people believe that once they land that long-awaited promotion, make more money, get their kids into the right schools, lose a few pounds, or find a meaningful relationship, then they'll be happy. But based on recent discoveries in the fields of positive psychology and neuroscience, Achor shows us that that formula for happiness is wrong. In fact, it's backwards. It turns out, happiness actually fuels success, not the other way around. This is what Achor calls The Happiness Advantage. When we become more positive, our brain becomes more engaged, creative, motivated, energetic, resilient and productive. The result is an advantage over the entirety of our life - improving success at work, creating better health, better relationships with our loved ones, and creating a happier home.
