Candy, that is exactly how you would feel if you were listening to me talk about the subject, lol. I'm very passionate about positive psychology and having an understanding of what happiness really is. I had to watch this video a few times, and I still catch new stuff every now and then. He's entertaining and he has a great message. I don't own his book yet, but I plan on getting it!
Ok I see where you got the ideas from for this group, and I think that this is a great concept. I had trouble keeping up with the speaker though, because he spoke so fast, and just kept rolling with barely a breath in between.
Hi, I'm going to check out this video in a few. Wanted to ask if this was a place just for the dicussionon Happiness Advantage video or is this also for general daily talks so we can get to know each other? Just checking so I dont over step your team plans.
Did you watch the Shawn Achor TED talk about the Happiness Advantage? If not, check it out under the sticky topic in the Introduction forum titled Introduction to Shawn Achor, then come back here to discuss. The video is about 12 mintues long and there is a link to it on YouTube.
This team is inspired by the Happiness Advantage and I hope you get a little something out of it. I can't wait to get moving on it!! I'm interested to hear what the rest of you have to say about the video. Personally, I'm a bit jealous of Shawn, lol. He is a positive psychologist, which is the field I want to go into. I was planning on getting my PhD in the next few years, but unfortunately life situations happened and I have to put that goal off, so until then I'll just read his books (and other positive psychologist books) and I'll keep thinking my happy thoughts!
