What is the science of happiness?
How do we define happiness?
Consider happiness a formula:
The old formula is broken. The formula goes like this:
“If you work harder, you’ll be more successful. If you are more successful then you’ll be happier”.
This formula has no end in sight. You will find it difficult to achieve fulfillment because there are always more goals to achieve. How do we define happiness? What is the science of happiness? If based on success, then the happiness definition is always changing as our money and financial goels change.
Consider this new formula:
Happiness fuels success. When we are happy we perform better.”
Here is a video of author Shawn Achor talking at Google about the science of happiness. His talk explains that before we can be happy or successful, we need to first develop the ability to see that positive change is possible.
