The Happiness Advantage provides readers with scientific research to back up our most common belief: more happiness leads to more success. Shawn Achor’s new book reveals how we can use the science of positive psychology to fuel our motivation, focus, and satisfaction — even when life seems to be stacked against us. We live in a dysfunctional system that rewards people for feeling bad, for being avoidable victims of circumstance. Accepting this reality will remove our excuses and free us from the guilt and shame that keep us from achieving our goals.

We all want to be happier—but what does it mean to be happy and how can we find our true potential? Shawn Achor shows that there is a better way of being successful. In this book, he uses cutting-edge research to recover the forgotten secret of happiness: the ability to seek meaningful experiences that nourish us emotionally and leave us emotionally uplifted.

Our most commonly held formula for success is broken. Conventional wisdom holds that if we work hard and learn new skills, we’ll be more successful, and then we’ll be happy. But recent discoveries in the field of positive psychology have shown that this formula is backward—if we can get better at managing our emotions, increasing motivation, and building relationships with others, society will benefit tremendously. The Happiness Advantage teaches readers how to cultivate strong personal relationships and manage stress levels—with positive thoughts and actions.

About The Happiness Advantage Book

Our most commonly held formula for success is broken.

Conventional wisdom holds that if we work hard we will be more successful, and if we are more successful, then we’ll be happy. If we can just find that great job, win that next promotion, lose those five pounds, happiness will follow. But recent discoveries in the field of positive psychology have shown that this formula is backward: Happiness fuels success, not the other way around. When we are positive, our brains become more engaged, creative, motivated, energetic, resilient, and productive at work. This isn’t just an empty mantra. This discovery has been repeatedly borne out by rigorous research in psychology and neuroscience, management studies, and the bottom lines of organizations around the globe.

In The Happiness Advantage, Shawn Achor, who spent over a decade living, researching, and lecturing at Harvard University, draws on his research—including one of the most extensive studies of happiness and potential at Harvard and others at companies like UBS and KPMG—to fix this broken formula. Using stories and case studies from his work with thousands of Fortune 500 executives in 42 countries, Achor explains how we can reprogram our brains to become more positive to gain a competitive edge at work.

Isolating seven practical, actionable principles that have been tried and tested everywhere from classrooms to boardrooms, stretching from Argentina to Zimbabwe, he shows us how we can capitalize on the Happiness Advantage to improve our performance and maximize our potential. Among the principles he outlines:

• The Tetris Effect: how to retrain our brains to spot patterns of possibility, so we can see—and seize—opportunities wherever we look.
• The Zorro Circle: how to channel our efforts on small, manageable goals, to gain the leverage to conquer bigger and bigger ones gradually.
• Social Investment: how to reap the dividends of investing in one of the most significant predictors of success and happiness—our social support network

A must-read for everyone trying to excel in a world of increasing workloads, stress, and negativity, The Happiness Advantage isn’t only about how to become happier at work. It’s about how to reap the benefits of a happier and more positive mindset to achieve the extraordinary in our work and in our lives.
