It's easy to be the victim, give up and let life overcome you.
It requires the strength of a Happiness Olympian to rise above life challenges into a state of sustainable happiness or peace within.
Do you want to let life overcome you?
Do you want to embrace the implementation of happiness science to see empirically based benefits unfold in front of you?
How much longer can you think happiness is unimportant when science is here to show you it is essential and leads to an extraordinary life?
Does it take a Happiness Olympian to be happy
amidst life's daily turmoil?
1. IS HAPPINESS WORTHY OF OLYMPIC STATUS?
A lot of people view happiness as fluff, woo-woo, a party, not-to-be-taken-serious, Pollyanna, stupid or downright ridiculous.
This is a different viewpoint than the extraordinary, far beyond the usual type of characteristic that one may have in association with an Olympian.
2. WHO LEARNS HAPPINESS SCIENCE?
Movers and Shakers.
Contrary to popular thought, many sustainable happiness students have graduated from top schools including Stanford, Harvard, UC Berkeley, University of Michigan to name a few. They are the type of people who are MDs, Nurses, CEOs, visionary entrepreneurs, lawyers, founders, parents and more.
3. WHAT DO THEY DO WITH IT?
They create their upward spiral in life.
They give speeches at the United Nations, negotiate high stakes contracts, save lives in the ER, provide jobs for many, make billion dollar decisions, raise children, and are high contributors in society.
They contribute to many sectors from healthcare, financial, technology, advertising, real estate, mainstream media, global nonprofits, legal, and even national defense.
4. WHY DO HIGH PERFORMERS WANT TO LEARN POSITIVE PSYCHOLOGY?
Seems like an interesting question if happiness is considered frivolous.
Why would the elite want to learn something that was unimportant?
It is because they value their mindset
will do anything for peace of mind & heart.
They have EXTREME challenges in their daily lives including things like; incurable disease, a crashing company, a hysterical ex-spouse, a high stakes job, a suicidal child, and more.
They have been faced with the downward spiral, looked at their life's challenge & said:
- I AM UNABLE TO LET MYSELF BE OVERCOME.
- MY PERFORMANCE & SUCCESS DEPEND ON MY WELL-BEING.
- I WANT TO ENSURE MY LIFE GOES IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION.
5. WHY IS POSITIVE PSYCHOLOGY THE ANSWER?
Positive psychology is almost 20 years old and has a refined research body from Harvard, Stanford, University of California, University of Michigan and more. The Happiness Makeover leadership program is based in mathematics and the science of happiness utilizing the Broaden and Build Theory of positive emotions among other empirically based research findings. Learning how to use happiness science in daily life enables each student to ensure their well-being is in their own control and they can create an upward spiral of life instead of getting drowned in chaos.
6. IS SUSTAINABLE HAPPINESS DIFFERENT THAN WOO-WOO HAPPINESS?
Woo-woo happiness is similar to the hedonic moments of pleasure you achieve when you have a new purchase, go on vacation or eat chocolate. Sustainable happiness is entirely different. It is the most empowered state of being. It is a skill set practiced every moment of everyday, an extensive knowledge base, a deep and life long practice, a formula to achieve and even an algorithm.
The benefit of adopting sustainable happiness & positive psychology in your life is a new way of being.
This means the world stops having control of your well-being. You get off the emotional rollercoaster, flourish and come out on top of the game!
7. ARE THERE BENEFITS TO LEARNING SUSTAINABLE HAPPINESS?
People who have been able to sustain their happiness for longer than 20 years are healthy, happy and free!
Empirical research shows happiness directly impacts the immune system, longevity, increases performance, improves relationships and more.
These ‘benefits’ become a way of life when you achieve a state of mastery in sustainable happiness. This is the upward spiral.
High achievers learn sustainable happiness because
they want the BEST IN LIFE
positive psychology is a way to get there.
