  • How Your Thought Got You Where You Are

    Shawn Achor is a big happiness guy. As a corporate trainer, author, and speaker, he spreads the positive psychology good word. This is an important message to share because we all think and behave much differently from a position of feeling positive, open. and engaged compared to how we think and behave from a position of feeling negative, defensive and closed down.

    But is there a downside to all this intentional happiness? Well, yes. It’s one more job to do, one more thing to feel guilty about, one more opportunity for self-criticism as we catalogue all those unhappy or even neutral moments of the day that we have been too lazy to do anything about.
