Learned Happiness? Can It Be So?

Education & Training with Weisman Success Resources, Inc.

How timely my post yesterday on Emotional Mastery?  There was an article in the NY Times Magazine yesterday about how the field of 'positive psychology' is becoming a big thing on real college campuses and is now being studied for validity by psychologists.

It's a great story on the 'power of positive thinking,' a philosophy which has been around for decades and maybe even centuries, although Norman Vincent Peale started that phrase, I guess.

Anyway, here's the link to the article for anyone interested:

NY Times Magazine - "Happiness 101"

Reminds me of the adage it takes fewer muscles to smile than to frown and attitude can make us so much better at focusing in a positive way on what and where we are going than being down and procrastinating

Hey Skip,

I'm new to the "rain". Just joined over the weekend and have been clicking around and reading ever since.

I am interested in home staging and found a link to you from Craig Schiller. I have to say that your blogs are very informative and will be helpful to me. I'm going to add you to my Associates list.

I am an organized person, but I also am easily distracted. Focus is a weakness for me when I have so many other irons in the fire.

I will be keeping up with what you write.

The power of the mind is a great thing. We can change our reality by changing our perception of it. How often do two people see the same thing differently.

We can all decide how things inpact us. My dry Martini post will tell you that.

Great work Skip.

Skip I think the key to happiness is elogently stated in this saying " Happy are those conscious of their spiritual need."

Another key to being happy is to spend time alone in quiet contemplation. Some do this at church others find a quiet spot to reflect. It allows our minds to relax and opens us to new possibilities.
