What The Happiest People Know About Work

What The Happiest People Know About Work | Strategies for Managing Your Business | Scoop.it

Study, work hard, and you will be successful.

 

This was the mantra repeated by educators throughout my youth. None of them added "be happy" to the success equation.

 

But a growing body of research in positive psychology and neuroscience is demonstrating that happiness is the secret ingredient to success. It turns out, our brains are more engaged, creative, productive, and resilient when in a positive state.

 

All this unhappiness comes with a high price tag to businesses, costing more than $550 billion a year in lost productivity. In his book, Donovan identifies 60 simple steps individuals can take to improve their happiness and get back on the path to success. Here are six of the top things happy workers do:

Doing what you love can make you happy-- finding a way to make money while doing what you love is even better!

How Successful People Stay Calm

How Successful People Stay Calm | Strategies for Managing Your Business | Scoop.it

The ability to manage your emotions and remain calm under pressure has a direct link to your performance. TalentSmart has conducted research with more than a million people, and we’ve found that 90% of top performers are skilled at managing their emotions in times of stress in order to remain calm and in control.


The tricky thing about stress (and the anxiety that comes with it) is that it’s an absolutely necessary emotion. Our brains are wired such that it’s difficult to take action until we feel at least some level of this emotional state. In fact, performance peaks under the heightened activation that comes with moderate levels of stress. As long as the stress isn’t prolonged, it’s harmless.
