It is not the reality that shapes us, but the lens through which your brain views the world that shapes your reality. If we can change the lens, we change every single outcome in education and business at the same time. 90% of our long term happiness is predicted not by the external world, but by the way your brain processes the world.
75% of successes are predicted by your optimism levels, our social support and your ability to see stress as a challenge instead of as a threat.
The absence of disease is not health
Wrong theory: If I work harder, I’ll be more successful. And if I’m more successful, them I’ll be happier. Every time your brain has success, you just change the goalpost of what success looks like. If happiness is on the other side of success, your brain never gets there. We push happiness over the cognitive horizon. That’s why we think we have to be successful then we will be happier.
But our brain works opposite order. If we raise our positivity in the present, then their brain experiences what we call now a happiness advantage, which is your brain at positive performs significantly better than at negative, neutral or stressed. Your intelligence rises, your creativity rises, your energy levels rise.
