The Happiness Advantage
Conventional wisdom holds that if we work hard we will be more successful, and if we are more successful, then we’ll be happy. If we can just find that great job, win that next promotion, lose those five pounds, happiness will follow. But, according to Shawn Achor, recent discoveries in the field of positive psychology have shown that this formula is actually backward: happiness fuels success, not the other way around. Shawn is the New York Times bestselling author of The Happiness Advantage and Before Happiness. He has been interviewed by Oprah, had a PBS special, and his TED talk is one of the most popular with over 11 million views.
