Session Focus: Linking happiness, optimism + positivity to high performance

When we are happy, optimistic and positive, the physiology of the brain changes; it literally changes.

Research for positive psychology, effects of happiness on the brain, dates back to the 1990s. Since then, reams of data, thousands of studies, decades of research, and a serious application of the scientific method have provided irrefutable proof that we perform better when in HOP (happiness, optimism + positivity).

To quote Shawn Achor, “our brains are literally hardwired to perform at their best not when they are negative or even neutral, but when they are positive.”
