So I’ll begin with telling you about the formula for success. If you observe the people around you , you’ll find that most individuals follow a formula that has been taught to them by their schools, their company, their parents or society. It often says “If you work hard, you will become successful, and once you become successful, then you’ll be happy.”

This pattern of belief explains what motivates people. They feel that only when they achieve a certain goal will they be successful. That goal may be money or grades or a better job or a relationship or a  position or a bigger house. It may be anything .

  • So The Science says  Work hard = achieve success, achieve success = be happy.
  •  But this formula is broken

A decade of groundbreaking research in the fields of positive psychology and neuroscience has proven :

    • That Happiness is the precursor to success and not merely the result
    • Actually to fuel performance, achievement and success we need happiness and optimism

“The mind is its own place, and itself can make a heaven of hell, a hell of heaven.”

  • So what we We need to do is  Focus on the positive experience and scan for new opportunities. If we do this we give ourselves the greatest power possible, and that is : the ability to move up. And that is what all successful people do. They see adversity not as a stumbling block but as a stepping stone.
  • Remember we can retrain our brain. If we want more energy and we want to achieve success in life so we should always be on the lookout for the good things in life. Every LOCK has a key and our job is to find it. So when our brain constantly scan for and focuses on the positive, we will find solutions and ways to move up.
