Shawn Achor, CEO of Good Think Inc, author of The Happiness Advantage and the winner of more than a dozen distinguished teaching awards at Harvard University for his lectures on positive psychology, delivers this engaging TEDTalk about his extensive research on positive outliers — people who are well above average — which reveals how human potential, success and happiness intersect. Achor discovered that the idea of working to achieve and conquer success inherently leads to happiness is actually false. His talk discusses how happiness actually inspires productivity and the many ways we can all retrain our brains to see a positive reality.
