Informative, compelling and inspiring! Shawn Anchor speaks with authority on a subject that he is obviously passionate about and his first hand experiences that support the underlying premise of happiness leading to success not vice versa make it all the more credible.
Recommended for anyone in an organization that wants to make change. Refreshing concepts that turn traditional thinking on its head. Great listen.
I felt inspired to start making some big changes in my life after reading this book..
The anecdotes and stories are what make the book relatable. It made me feel like I too can inject some positivity into my life and become more successful in my relationships and my work.
As an entrepreneur and CEO, I found this book relevant and insightful. It hit big topics and followed up with practical tips we can apply in our own lives. My only criticism is a few chapters seemed to go off topic, but those can easily be skipped. In short, the premise of this book is happiness brings success, not the other way around. The book then exposes how we sacrifice happiness and success as we pursue success alone.
"Reading" this book has inspired me in all areas of my life. As a counselor, I know many of these principals already, but I needed to be reminded that positive psychology is real, research proven stuff that I actually have power to change. It gave me real, tangible recommendations of how I can become more happy in life, work and home. Thanks Shawn!
Great attitude adjustor. Lots of tips on how to be happier, optimistic and satisfied with life. It's already had an impact on me and my husband. Highly recommend.
I recently switched work centers and noticed low morale in this new environment. I knew that a team with high morale creates innovation, creativity and performance because I experienced it first hand at my old workcenter. This book re-iterated to me the truth. This had many great principles backed by tons of scientific research and tests. I loved the audiobook so much that I'm going to to have to share this with many other leaders. Thanks for the insightful read!
