Authentic Happiness


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

A national bestseller, Authentic Happiness launched the revolutionary new science of Positive Psychology—and sparked a coast-to-coast debate on the nature of real happiness. According to esteemed psychologist and bestselling author Martin Seligman, happiness is not the result of good genes or luck. Real, lasting happiness comes from focusing on one’s personal strengths rather than weaknesses—and working with them to improve all aspects of one’s life. Using practical exercises, brief tests, and a dynamic website program, Seligman shows readers how to identify their highest virtues and use them in ways they haven’t yet considered. Accessible and proven, Authentic Happiness is the most powerful work of popular psychology in years.

Authentic Happiness


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

In this important, entertaining book, one of the world's most celebrated psychologists, Martin Seligman, asserts that happiness can be learned and cultivated, and that everyone has the power to inject real joy into their lives. In Authentic Happiness, he describes the 24 strengths and virtues unique to the human psyche. Each of us, it seems, has at least five of these attributes, and can build on them to identify and develop to our maximum potential. By incorporating these strengths - which include kindness, originality, humour, optimism, curiosity, enthusiasm and generosity -- into our everyday lives, he tells us, we can reach new levels of optimism, happiness and productivity. Authentic Happiness provides a variety of tests and unique assessment tools to enable readers to discover and deploy those strengths at work, in love and in raising children. By accessing the very best in ourselves, we can improve the world around us and achieve new and lasting levels of authentic contentment and joy.

Authentic Happiness


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

From the author of the international bestseller, Learned Optimism, comes a ground-breaking look at the nature of happiness and how everyone has the power to inject real joy into their lives. Martin E. Seligman is the international leader of the Positive Psychology Movement. His first trade book, the international bestseller Learned Optimism, greatly influenced the way people thought about mental health by bringing the concepts of cognitive psychology to a mass audience. Authentic Happiness is an even bigger ground-breaker. It represents the first time any scientist has placed value in the study not only of mental illness, but of 'mental wellness.' It's not about curing one's ills, but about exercising one's strengths and virtues in order to achieve what Seligman terms 'authentic happiness.' The life-changing lesson of Authentic Happiness is that, by assessing the very best in ourselves, we can improve the world around us and achieve new and lasting levels of genuine contentment and joy.

An Entire Psychology of Happiness Course Conveyed in Easy-to-Read Emails Understand the psychology of happiness. Discover why happiness is a choice. And, learn four simple ways of choosing happiness in this succinct guide that can easily be read over a weekend or long plane flight. "What a beautiful gift--a few simple steps that can end what is so often, and for so many, a futile quest for a truly happy life...This is a simple, practical guide for anyone who's searching for that elusive state called true happiness." - John McGrail, Ph.D. Clinical Therapist. "What a terrific text, especially for those who have yet to learn lessons of happiness, success, and their personal responsibility in making each happen. Definitely a must read for all!"- LaQuisha Beckum Ed.S. Professor of Psychology. About Authentic Happiness in Seven Emails Have you found yourself caught in the happiness trap: in the continual pursuit of happiness? After years of pursuing happiness through money, relationships, and material possessions, Vickay found herself unfulfilled and unhappy. A college course on the psychology of happiness taught by a philosophy instructor piqued her curiosity. On a whim she was inspired to contact the professor for some insights on how to break out of her rut. His ideas forever changed her approach to finding happiness and started her on a path towards living life more skillfully. It all began with an email, containing a simple question, asked at the right time: How can I be happier? Authentic Happiness in Seven Emails is the answer to that question. Through these seven emails, the professor shares three key concepts and four critical skills for living a happy life: - What makes us happy? - If happiness is a choice, why don't we always choose it? - What is happiness anyway? - How can we experience more peace and less negativity? - How can we experience more joy? - How can we be more engaged and satisfied with our lives? - How can we live a meaningful life and rediscover our sense of purpose? Topics Include: the happiness equation; positive psychology; flow experiences; the hedonic treadmill; hedonic adaptation; cultural conditioning and the unconscious mind; mindfulness and meditation; gratitude; negative thinking and the negativity bias; internal locus of control, and much more. The professor draws on modern psychological research to provide practical tools for experiencing consistent, everyday happiness, but he also raises philosophical questions that will have you discovering your own unique insights on life. Authentic Happiness in Seven Emails is more than a collection of emails or an introductory textbook to positive psychology. It is an inspirational, thought-provoking guide to the science of happiness and to a life well lived. Whether over a week, weekend, or long plane flight, what better investment of your time than to learn the basics of the psychology of happiness? Why not learn how to be happy starting today?

The Little Prince Strategy For Authentic Happiness


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

This book is useful for those people who believe that a different path awaits for them and those who sense something better but don't know what it is yet. The Little Prince tugs at your clothes to tell you things he wants to get done because he does know what is good for you. He says so insistently . . . fearlessly. Millions of people have read The Little Prince as kids. And those reflective ones have been left with a sensation that there's something else behind each character's words. A glimpse of guidance of wisdom is perceived. Innocent wisdom is, therefore, valuable. It is absurd that having in our hands the key to happiness since we were children, we resort to the Prince of Machiavelli (consciously or unsconsciously) to sort out our lives. Intrigues, selfishness, distrust, disloyalty—all are part of the strategy we use day by day: the Machiavellianism. That strategy is the root of sadness, suffering in companies, countries, and in our own lives. Why not let your childhood's old buddy walk along with you?—that Little Prince that annoys you with weird questions. Why not give your childhood's buddy—that little price who asks awkward questions—the opportunity to walk along with you. Let that little fellow guide you to authentic success on an adventurous journey through an infinite and unfamiliar world: your inner self.
