Happiness

Shawn Achor, author of The Happiness Advantage, said the following:

“Genes are really important to happiness, but that’s based upon the cult of the average. What that means is that the average person doesn’t fight their genes. So if you’re born with genes for obesity or for pessimism, and you don’t change your behavior than your genes win. Happiness comes easier to some people, but happiness is a possibility for all if we change our behavior or our mindset.”

Below is a presentation he did for TED. Funny. Fascinating. And worth trying . . .

Remember, we are much more than average!

Remember, whenever someone subscribes, an angel gets her wings.

  1. For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others. For beautiful lips, speak words kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.
