The 14 Habits of Highly Miserable People

The 14 Habits of Highly Miserable People | Happy Newcomers (Wellness and Positivity for all!) | Scoop.it
Most of us claim we want to be happy—to have meaningful lives, enjoy ourselves, experience fulfillment, and share love and friendship with other people and maybe other species, like dogs, cats, birds, and whatnot. Strangely enough, however, some people act as if they just want to be miserable, and they succeed remarkably at inviting misery into their lives, even though they get little apparent benefit from it, since being miserable doesn’t help them find lovers and friends, get better jobs, make more money, or go on more interesting vacations. Why do they do this? After perusing the output of some of the finest brains in the therapy profession, I’ve come to the conclusion that misery is an art form, and the satisfaction people seem to find in it reflects the creative effort required to cultivate it. In other words, when your living conditions are stable, peaceful, and prosperous—no civil wars raging in your streets, no mass hunger, no epidemic disease, no vexation from poverty—making yourself miserable is a craft all its own, requiring imagination, vision, and ingenuity. It can even give life a distinctive meaning.

What is Positive Psychology? What is it NOT?

What is Positive Psychology? What is it NOT? | Happy Newcomers (Wellness and Positivity for all!) | Scoop.it

Positive psychology is the study of what constitutes excellence in individuals, communities and workplaces. It incorporates the study of productivity, resilience, motivation, emotions, strengths, team dynamics and more."

Let’s see how positive psychology can show just how much you enjoy getting up and going to work everyday.  One thing the Gallup organization has discovered in its studies of more than 10 million workers worldwide is that when we have the opportunity to use our strengths—what  we are naturally good at—every day, we are six times more likely to be engaged in our work and three times more likely to report a greater sense of wellbeing.  Think about all the time you spend at work—when you love what you do, it has a spillover effect into your personal life.  Unfortunately, the reverse is true when you dislike your job

Dr. Laura Sheneman's curator insight, December 20, 2013 11:04 AM

Think about your role as a librarian and aim to develop these habits.  It will keep us on the cutting edge of transformation.

ASPEL Editor's curator insight, January 14, 2014 5:01 AM

Often times we are faced with the temptation to reach for a fast (and potentially wrongheaded) solution. However, a good strategic leader holds steady, synthesizing information from many sources before developing a viewpoint. If your leader lacks some level of peripheral vision, it can leave your company vulnerable to rivals who detect and act on ambiguous signals. We need strategic leaders who will foster open dialogue, build trust and engage key stakeholders, especially when views diverge. Find out how to become the strategic leader your company needs!

Overcoming the Emotion of Fear by Robert Kiyosaki

Overcoming the Emotion of Fear by Robert Kiyosaki | Happy Newcomers (Wellness and Positivity for all!) | Scoop.it

Why emotional intelligence is key to success

A big part of being human is being human. And, being human means having emotions. We all feel fear, sadness, anger, love, hate, disappointment, joy, and more. What makes us each unique is how we respond to those emotions.

When it comes to risking money, we all experience fear, even the most successful of us. The difference is how each of us handles that fear. For many people, that emotion of fear generates the thought: "Play it safe. Don't take risks." For others the fear of losing money makes them think: "Play it smart. Learn to manage risk."

Same emotions, different thought: different being—different doing—different having.
