What is the one thing that we all strive for? It’s Happiness. What we think it takes to achieve happiness is what we get wrong. We often think that if we just get that raise, close the deal, increase our bank account, sell the company, lose a few pounds, or fill in the blank, then we will be happy. Within the last 20 years science has proven this is backwards.
Imagine for a moment that you don’t need anything to change in order for you to be happy or positive. Now imagine because you are positive, the predictability of those things you want to happen actually increases. This is the reality that most people don’t know or don’t use to their advantage.
We have to get beyond the idea that our external world controls our happiness. It’s time to take positivity into your own hands. With a few simple tools and strategies, it is possible to make the act of bringing positivity into your home and workplace a habit that positively affects those around you and your bottom line.
Being the leader that you are, building a positive culture is just about the most important thing you can do for the success of you and your team. It is scientifically proven that negativity affects the morale, performance, and productivity of individuals and teams in a harmful way. Conversely, positivity has been proven to decrease turnover and increase productivity and profits.
Today I’m answering the question, what can we do as individuals and leaders to fuel positivity in the workplace and home? How can we become positively infectious leaders especially in these uncertain times? You have the choice to become your own positive power plant and share that magic with others, while driving business results. All it takes is some intentional shifts in your mindset and daily habits.
