Creating positive change

Deviating slightly from the theme of social media, we focus on the bigger picture this Saturday: the happiness of achieving success. It’s the weekend, and that means everyone has something to be happy about, right? Well, perhaps. But perhaps not. Do you feel as though you need to be more successful before you can be truly happy? If so, you’re not alone.

Happiness researcher Shawn Achor delivers this entertaining and paradigm-shifting talk on the relationship between happiness and success. He says, “In just a two-minute span of time done for 21 days in a row, we can actually rewire your brain, allowing your brain to actually work more optimistically and more successfully.”

This TED talk underscores a truth we hold dear at aXent: your attitude determines your altitude, and doing what you love is a great recipe for both happiness and success. What about you? Do you love what you do each day? Are you truly happy, or do you still feel you need to achieve just that little bit more to feel truly satisfied? Let us know in the comments! We’d love to hear your thoughts.
