    Post written by Peter G. James Sinclair. Life is about building. I am reminded of how a skyscraper is built. The bulk of the construction time is spent on building incredibly strong foundations. The higher the building, the deeper the foundations. So if you’re going to design an exceptional life, then you’ll need to invest time and effort into the forging of your foundational character that will last you a lifetime. Unfortunately, not everyone takes the care to do this, and it is for that reason, no matter how talented one is, I would like to present to you the two ways that you can…

     “Dependent people need others to get what they want. Independent people can get what they want through their own effort.” Stephen Covey (Author, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People) “Why are people so afraid? The answer is that they have made themselves helpless and dependent on others.” Swami Vivekananda (19th Century Monk and Teacher, Yoga Philosophy) “The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be.” Ralph Waldo Emerson (Author, Self-Reliance and Other Essays)   “You can choose one gift from the blue level, one from the green…

    5 Ways to Charge your Batteries, from The Psychology of Wellbeing Time management is out. Energy management is in. Time is a precious resource (some say the most precious resource we have) and we do feel like we never have enough. But if we look at how people use their time we see that people do have more time than they think (how else do we manage to binge watch entire seasons of America’s Next Top Model?) We have time, but we don’t always have energy. How much time do you spend, for example, in unproductive pursuits: binge watching a season of your favorite TV show, aimlessly browsing…

    23 Jun 2015 | 9:02 am
    Post written by Peter G. James Sinclair. Since the age of 18 I have spent most of my adult life living the life of an entrepreneur, so it is for that reason that I’m excited to share with you what I believe it takes to be a successful entrepreneur. But before we look at the attributes, let’s first take a closer look at the history behind the development and meaning of the word entrepreneur. The History Behind The Word Entrepreneur The earliest definition is found in the 13th century, where we learn the word’s root. The origin of the English word entrepreneur comes from the French word…

    2 Jul 2015 | 7:20 am
    By Kathryn Britton - Our book, Smarts and Stamina, has at least two roots in positive psychology. One is that positive emotion is a primary driver for sticking with healthy behaviors to make them into habits. Another is that people need to create their own sets of habits by experimenting until they find what works for them. That’s why we give 50 different activities and suggest that people play with them until they find what fits.

    By Homaira Kabir - My oldest daughter returned home a couple of weeks ago. She was back from her first year of university in Montreal. I had missed her terribly. I had longed to hug her, have her lie in my lap, braid her long tresses. Now she was actually here…    Rather text her friends…She was jet-lagged for the first few days. As her fatigue wore off, I searched for signs of the daughter I had left behind less than a year ago, the child who loved to rest her head on my shoulder, who staunchly backed every word I said, who laughed with glee at my every joke. I did not…

    19 Jun 2015 | 9:15 am
    By Orin Davis - From my very first blog post as a newly-minted Ph.D. in positive psychology, Reverse Engineering Positive Psychology, I have been talking about the difference between the findings of research studies and their applications to an individual’s daily life. I pointed out that the results are based on differences in the averages between groups, and that group-level results are in no way indicative of one person’s experience. Consequently, I suggested that people need to reverse-engineer the findings of research to their own lives. In my recent TEDx talk, Help Yourself to…

Better Than Before is in really terrific company, so it was exciting to be part of the list. Most of us have habits that we want to make or break, and Better Than Before explains how to do that.

    “You increase your self-respect when you feel you’ve done everything you ought to have done, and if there is nothing else to enjoy, there remains that chief of pleasures, the feeling of being pleased with oneself. A man gets an immense amount of satisfaction from the knowledge of having done good work and of having made the best use of his day, and when I am in this state I find that I thoroughly enjoy my rest and even the mildest forms of recreation.” — Journal of Eugene Delacroix A wonderful, wonderful book by the way.

    In my new (bestselling) book, Better Than Before, I identify the twenty-one strategies of habit-formation, and one is the Strategy of Loophole-Spotting. I’m doing a video series in which I discuss the ten categories of loopholes. I love studying loopholes, because they’re so funny. And ingenious! We’re such great advocates for ourselves — in any situation, we can always think of some loophole to invoke. Well, what is a “loophole?” When we try to form and keep habits, we often search for loopholes, for justifications that will excuse us from keeping this particular habit in this…

    I carry a backpack with me everywhere. I practically never use a purse, just my backpack. Recently, the zipper on my backpack broke, so this afternoon I bought a new one (see photo).  It got me thinking about some lessons that I’ve learned about happiness, habits — and myself. Lesson 1: Why did I find it strangely satisfying that the zipper broke? Because I’m a finisher. Some people love finishing, and some people love opening—both literally and figuratively. Finishers love the feeling of bringing a project to completion, and they’re determined to use the last drop in…

    Mindfulness: It Ain’t All It’s Cracked Up To Be, from The Psychology of Wellbeing After going deep into the research on wellbeing, I have been impressed by the number of studies showing benefits of mindfulness and meditation.

    On the Evolution of Assholes, from The Psychology of Wellbeing We are genetically programmed to look out for ourselves. Or more accurately, we are genetically programmed in ways that will protect our genes (and their future replication.) So it is not surprising that humans are prone to “assholeness.” On an individual basis, it is generally better for our genes to do whatever is best for ourselves at the sacrifice of anyone around us.  Consider the infamous “Prisoner’s Dilemma” problem that Richard Dawkins outlines in his book, The Selfish Gene.

    Peter G. James Sinclair

    Post written by Sophie Cliche. For me, change starts with an inspiration. I often identify something that could be better, something that currently restricts me or causes me pain, and I let myself dream about what it could be instead. I become engaged in solving it, and I attempt to delineate what could be steps towards changing the situation. The spark could come from talking to someone that has resolved a similar situation. It could be buying a book that informs or inspires me. It could be visiting a place that gives me clues about what bothers me, or what I need in my life. It could be…

It was a simple mistake that added twenty minutes to my trip. Anyone could’ve done it, but I just couldn’t seem to let it go. As I waited in traffic my inner voice flogged me. “I can’t believe I did this.” “I’m so stupid.” “How did I get to be such an idiot. Now I’m going to be late.” That’s what I kept telling myself. My sense of anxiety grew as I looked at the traffic in front of me.

    Post written by Lidiya K. There’s a lot of stress in our daily lives. And it makes us miserable, causes depression, and even diseases. In order to remove stress, we’ll have to get rid of other things that go together with it. Here’s what you can do to increase the level of stress in your life: 1. Make enough time. Start by getting up early so that you can have enough time – some for yourself, some to do the daily chores, and most importantly – to get ready to go out without being in a hurry and forgetting stuff. 2. Have a place for everything. When you take or use a thing in…

    When it comes to creating a successful life, there are a variety of skills we’re often taught important to master, like: time and money management self discipline accountability persistence interpersonal and communication skills, etc. Certainly those are very helpful abilities in navigating our way through life. But there are a handful of other competencies that are perhaps even more important to living a happy life. Here are 10 success skills you probably weren’t taught to master: 1. How to say no.

Enjoy this from Janette D.: Sometimes the thing we want has a deadline attached, and for some of us that gets kinky. Manifesting with a deadline is a tricky game! I’ve had this happen with attracting clients (“omg, I must have a client by Tuesday or else blah blah blah”) and other things. Sometimes the time pressure seems external (bill due, dentist appointment);…

    Yes, miracles happen. Things that seem extremely unlikely, that we might hope for but don’t really plan on – sometimes they happen. But it’s smoother manifesting when we learn to expect it; to see it as the next logical step. How to do that when it’s something that seems so far out of reach? Practice, my friend. We practice it in our mind’s eye until it feels normal in there. And pretty soon it will seem normal out here, too. That’s the cue Universe is waiting for. Abraham says we can’t manifest the “big thing” as long as we think of it…

And we also know that the external reflects the internal. Which is why this little test of self-love can reveal your state of alignment.

  • Learning To Step Over Coercion And Create The Workplace Culture That You Want

    Rachel Collis
    17 Jun 2015 | 9:14 am
    In his wonderful book, The Nurture Effect, Tony Biglan, states that ’the most important stressor we humans typically face comes in the form of coercive interactions with other humans.’ Coercion is where people use unpleasant behaviour to influence you. If you do what they want, then the aversive behaviour will stop…at least for a while. Coercive behaviour in the workplace includes overt bullying and intimidation but it also can be more subtle – put downs, teasing, social exclusion etc. It can even involve using expressions of disappointment as a form of control.

  • How can Behaviour Analysis Help in Coaching? (part 1)

    So many people in ACT are attracted to its focus on values and connecting to what matters that it can be a surprise to learn of its roots in behaviour analysis.  After all, isn’t that what  they do with rats? After attending an excellent talk on this subject by David Gillanders, I wanted to write a short series on how behaviour analysis might help in coaching. The Lingo: In behaviour analysis, “A” refers to the antecedent, or the event or activity that immediately precedes a behavior. The “B” refers to the observed behavior, and “C” refers to the…

    What if your greatest successes are more a reflection of your small, everyday choices than of the big decisions you make? In his book, ‘How to Choose’, David Freemantle suggests that it is our micro-behaviours that make the difference between success and disappointment. By micro-behaviours, he means the ‘nuances and minutiae of our observed behaviours’. We tend to remember big choices we have made and think they have determined the course of our life. Whilst it is true that these larger choices are important. Freemantle suggests that it is actually our micro-behaviours that…

    When you wake up in the morning would you describe yourself as fully charged?  If you’re like most people chances are you’re shaking your head and instead feel more like you’re struggling to get out of bed.  For example, when more than 10,000 people were recently surveyed only 11% reported having a great deal of energy. But studies suggest that when you’re fully charged, you get more done, you have better interactions, and your mind is sharp and your body is strong.  You also experience higher levels of engagement and wellbeing that can create an upward spiral of…
  • 5 Ways To Make Your Meetings More Positive

    18 Jun 2015 | 8:37 am
    When it comes to the meetings you run at work do you know how to bring out the best in the people attending? Researchers estimate we spend 37% of our time in meetings at work and that 50% of this time is completely wasted. I’m sure we’ve both attended our fair share of those meetings, where we find ourselves counting the seconds until it will finally end! Of course one of the problems is that decisions are rarely made in meetings. Instead we talk and talk and talk some more, and then when the clock strikes the hour the meeting ends abruptly and everyone rushes out the door leaving little…

      When you sit down with your manager to talk about how you’re performing at work what’s the focus of your conversation? Do they mostly talk to you about what you’re doing well or what you’re failing to deliver? Are they keen to help you find ways to build on what you do best or to find ways to fix your weaknesses? I ask because in a recent poll of more than 1,000 randomly selected American employees the VIA Institute and I discovered that most managers are having the wrong conversations with their employees. You see the data suggests that with or without their managers employees…

    Do you feel exhausted just from the thought of all the things you “should” be doing to maintain your physical wellbeing? Get eight hours of sleep. Eat better food. Take 10,000 steps. And repeat. Day after day after day of “should”, “should”, “should”. Let’s be honest … few among us have the willpower to sustain this kind of effort no matter how good it might be for us. In the real world of demanding bosses, growing families and long-suffering friends, looking after our physical wellbeing often feels like a luxury we simply can’t fit in. But given being healthy is not…

    I have a confession to make. There was a time in my career when I was a horrible boss. When I was 26 years old I was appointed as the General Manager of boutique public relations firm and while I was technically great at my job and had nothing but good intentions for my team … I had no idea how to bring out the best in others. Unfortunately I’m not alone. Studies suggest that 63% of managers say their leadership skills are average or below. The problem is most leaders are appointed because they’ve been technically successful. And while some of us are given training…

    Over the last few weeks I’ve been crazy busy and I’ve realised the one thing that’s kept me sane is my morning ritual.

I know when my morning alarm goes off it’s time for my morning ritual. Morning rituals make it easier for you to get out of bed in the morning and also help you to start your day with an easy win.

Twelve hours later I was talking happiness 101 live on the BBC Tees radio program by calling in from abroad. It was a short and sweet happiness interview that brought me back to the basics of happiness and even reminded me of how simply it can be achieved. In the interview I covered: Why are some people of a…

    Every now and then you find yourself going through a phase where you get sucked into a bad habit of comparing yourself to others. You’ll look at their jobs, careers, their fancy instagram posts and their celebratory success posts on facebook. You catch yourself thinking, “Why am I not doing that?” - and then quickly remember that you don’t even want to do what they’re doing. Sometimes I fall into this trap too. It’s easy to do when everywhere you look people are telling you about their latest success or exciting adventure. It’s like you’re…

    Few days ago I returned from an epic one-week journey of self-discovery, healing and personal growth – at a yoga retreat! As a yoga beginner (having practiced it only for 6 months), I never knew yoga could be so transformative in so many ways. I went into the retreat knowing it was far out of my comfort zone – and found a sense of belonging I never expected to find. From ashtanga yoga to yin yoga to meditation to shamanic drums to chanting to veggie foods to massages to reiki to nature walks to puppy cuddles to good conversations – it was an unforgettable holiday in so many…

    Everyone seems to be in the pursuit of happiness nowadays. There are many ways to reach happiness though, including training your mind for happiness, spending money on others to promote happiness, and following the code to well-being and happiness.

Seligman’s theoretical model of happiness helps us understand these elements and what we can do to maximize each element to reach a life full of happiness.

    by Stacy Menzies Chief Happbassador, Happy Fix On Wednesday, June 17, a 21-year old man went into the Emmanuel AME Church in Charleston, SC. After approximately an hour of sitting with worshipers participating in a bible study, he pulled out a gun and systematically shot them, killing nine innocent people.On Friday, the families of those victims were in court for the bond hearing of the assailant. What some of them had to say was surprising, but should be an example for everyone dealing with others who inflict harm. Their words? “I forgive you.”Forgiveness is a tough thing. For a very…

Obviously, one of the reasons I did this was because she’s my wife, and to paraphrase my father-in-law, if she ain’t happy, you ain’t happy. But in all seriousness, one of the overarching reasons I’m a huge Happy Fix fan is that I firmly believe in the company's underlying concept of choosing happiness.What exactly does that mean, choosing happiness? In my mind, it does not mean to blindly cruise through…

    When my daughter was about four-years-old she often played “restaurant.” She’d hand around homemade menus and then prepare our orders with wooden food and Tupperware containers in her model pink kitchen in the corner of the living room. I always ordered a salad with spaghetti or whatever the special was for the night. And, while she worked to prepare the meals,  she also talked to her pretend kitchen staff about how to make the recipes. She didn’t know anything about ingredients, so each time she had to imagine what went into spaghetti sauce, or how to bake a cookie, and…

    Your imagination is pretty good at figuring out how to put together Lego houses, and mold mini-pretend pizzas from Play-Doh. But it can also help you manage a budget, come up with a creative compromise, and even help you manage pain and recover faster from surgery. And now more research shows that using your imagination may actually help you more than practice when it comes to successfully completing a task. Vanderbilt researchers found that it was visualization instead of practice that helped people respond faster and more efficiently when seeking a specific target. Study participants were…

The practice fueled my curiosity and more than a few Trivia Crack victories. I’m still in the habit today. Something will come up during our dinnertime conversation and my with my daughter or husband will seek out the answer. But, this time, it doesn’t come from a book. It comes from Google.

    At 9:00 last night I told Jim that I was going to take a look at a documentary that was airing on our PBS station but that I thought I probably wouldn't watch much of it, as it sounded pretty depressing.  The title of the film was "The Overnighters" and was described as telling the story of a Lutheran pastor in a small North Dakota oil-boom town who opens up his church to let men sleep there who have come to find work and have nowhere else to go.  Usually these films in the series "POV" are an hour long, but it was clear at 10:00 that we had a ways to go, and I was fading…

I know this because I’ve spent a huge part of my life consumed by fear and anxiety. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again—living in fear has been an absolutely HUGE waste of my time. I do respect my body’s instinct for keeping me from harm and I want it to continue to protect me. It’s my mind’s definition and attachment to fear that I want changed.

I know that you know there are way more than five emotions, but with less than two hours, I don’t think they had enough time to explore more than five. One thing you may not know is that there are more negative emotions to experience than positive ones and the movie reflects that. The story…

    At the guts of your vanity square measure your core beliefs regarding the type of person you’re. If you have got low vanity these beliefs are in the main negative, and negative beliefs square measure expressed in many ways. In your thoughts regarding yourself you are possible to be self-critical, self-blaming and self-doubting, and target your weaknesses instead of your positive qualities. The beliefs can have an effect on your behaviour: you will avoid challenges and opportunities, be regularly justificatory, or realize it troublesome to be assertive. they will have a bearing on your…

The beliefs you’ve got regarding yourself typically seem to be statements of reality, though really they are very solely opinions. they’re supported the experiences you have had in life, and therefore the messages that these experiences have given you regarding the type of person you’re. If your experiences are negative, your beliefs regarding yourself area unit probably to be negative too. Crucial experiences that facilitate to create our beliefs regarding ourselves typically (although not always) occur early in life. What you saw, detected and…
