Happiness and success

Happiness is a key driver and a precursor of success.

Positive feelings make the brain work better. They trigger the release of serotonin and dopamine, which significantly enhance motor control, motivation, memory, problem-solving and mental focus.

IDEAS

Happiness is misunderstood

Happiness is often misunderstood as the presence of positive emotions and the absence of negative ones.

  • It leads to work cultures that put pressure on people to show false positive emotions.
  • Associating being happy with being cheerful all the time creates another problem. Happiness can be classified as less serious and superficial, resulting in universities that avoid developing "happy" graduates.

"Embracing new things often requires us to embrace our fears, however trivial they may seem. You deal with fear not by pretending it doesn’t exist, but by refusing to give it decision-making authority."
