How to be truly happy at work, by Chris Gaborit

How to be truly happy at work, by Chris Gaborit | Motivational Leadership | Scoop.it

There have been many letdowns in my life and valleys along the way. I was promised promotions from managers that never eventuated, pay raises that I never saw, and opportunities that never came.

 

Today, however, I am so happy and where I wanted to be. I am financially blessed and in love with life. However, life was not always so happy. What are the keys to reaching your goals and being where you want to be?

 

1. Commit to give 100% in all you do.

From the first time in Grade 1 when teams and captains were chosen at school, I wanted to be the captain. I have always wanted to be financially successful and be a leader. Maybe it is because we were so poor as a family that I had to ride my old bike every morning to the bakery to buy 20 cents worth of 2-day-old chook (chicken) bread, which we ended up eating, or maybe because we could not afford real milk or butter.

The Simple Thing That Makes the Happiest People in the World So Happy | Motivational Leadership | Scoop.it

So you want to start? You want something insanely easy to do that research has demonstrated over and over again works.

To be fair, most people don’t really do much to deliberately make their lives happier.

New Harvard Research Reveals A Fun Way To Be More Successful

New Harvard Research Reveals A Fun Way To Be More Successful | Motivational Leadership | Scoop.it

We all want to be more successful.


But everything you read probably sounds like a lot of work. Isn’t there a scientifically proven method that’s a little more… fun? There is.

 

Shawn Achor is the bestselling author of The Happiness Advantage and for years at Harvard he studied exactly that: happiness.

 

He gave an extremely popular (and, in my opinion, the all time funniest) TED talk.

Graeme Reid's insight:

Great talk  highlighting how focussing on the positive leads to greater success.
