This book far exceeded my expectations. I was fortunate enough to be one of those people that was born happy, so was my daughter. Until I saw Shawn on Oprah I did not realize there was a whole movement that focuses on using the power of happiness in the work place to improve not only performance but group morale . This book powerfully translates this vast and vital research into real , applicable, exciting strategies for any work environment! I've been in management for 30 years and have never been more inspired, I've ordered copies for all of my staff! Thank you Shawn!!!
I have both and have switched from one to the other. However, you can hear Shawn's smile and enthusiasm as he reads his words with easy conviction.
There are so many actionable suggestions. Reset your default button and moving the fulcrum. Simple but life altering!
Say something about yourself!
Most of us have heard one or two of these principles. The author goes into detail behind why the principles work and uses University studies to validate the reasoning. The book is 30% claim, 30% anecdotal, and 40% research study review. The author does a great job of engaging the reader and the narrator has a good balance in pace and tone of voice.
This audiobook shared many fascinating studies that we're done about happiness. Most of us misunderstand what makes us experience happiness. The book shares wonderful techniques we can each apply to find greater happiness and fulfillment in our lives. Each section shares a simple and easy way to turn on our happiness advantage.
Not the same energy of performance as his TED talk but great job.
Shawn provides an exceptional overview of how happiness can make us all more effective in our everyday lives. Even more, everything he says is supported with research and he gives specific actions we can employ to get results.
This book is outstanding. I am already implementing the concepts to improve my life be it work, play, or family. I recommend this to anyone but especially those if us simply going through the motions to get through a day.
This book exceeded my expectations. I loved the scientific proof behind the claims. While the term NLP was never used, many topics in this book were NLP concepts which I found very interesting. I mostly appreciated the simplicity of the way ideas were presented.
Yes, because I want to write down the seven principles. Listening as an audio book I can't flip back to the headlines, so yes, I do want to listen again.
I like that he used his own experience and research.
Write down three positive things to be thankful for each day. How to make rules to change habits. How happiness leads to success. Success does not lead to happiness. My happiness will spread to others.
Thank God he never once mentions the universe. How I hate listening to authors tell me how I need to ask the universe for things! This book gives you real tools, using proven techniques, so I can make the changes I want to make! I'm the only one who can do that!
