21 Days of Gratitude and meaning - - Studies have shown that even a person who scores on tests as a pessimist aka NEGATIVE NELLY, can do this 21 day exercise, and when take they test at the end, they have jumped to a low level OPTIMIST! Happiness is a PRACTICE, not something that just happens to you. #SCIENCE #oprahssupersoulconversations #shawnanchor #practicehappiness #imtalkingtoyounegativefacebookpostsnelly
Listening to #oprahsupersoulsunday this morning on my walk, I realized until now I had the defintion of Happiness confused with Pleasure. Happiness is "the joy you feel striving towards your potential." And becuase striving= growing...one must not confuse stress, challenges and having to work as opposite to being happy, because happiness requires all of those to achieve our potential. #shawnanchor #happiness #pleasure #potential
I've had a rough couple of days mentally and emotionally. I know I need a mindset shift so I'm going back to reading some personal development books that I've read before that have struck a chord with me in the past. I am currently reading "the Slight Edge" by Jeff Olson again. I came across Shawn Achor's five happy habits for the second time and remembered how much I liked the idea of them. So I'm going to be adding them to my daily routine. I really struggle with mornings but I believe that if I get up, write the things that I'm thankful for, journal about something positive that happened the day before, and meditate the rest of the day will go better. Emails (or in my case Facebook messages or Instagram DMs) and my exercise will have to wait for later so that I can get to early morning rehearsals with my dancers. Hoping that this will be the mindset shift I need. Now, I'm an obliger. If you don't know what that is, look up Gretchen Rubins's Four Tendencies. I need external accountability to develop habits. Who wants to keep me accountable?
“Intelligence counts for only 25 percent of our job success; 75 percent of our successes in life—and not just about jobs but within the working world—75 percent of what causes our kids to be successful, is not about our intelligence and technical skills. It’s how we process the world. It’s our optimism. Like the belief that our behavior really matters. #shawnanchor via @oprah #wisdomofsundays #raisingfreepeople #selfdirectedlearning
I am no longer fighting the old, I am building a new... I have a handful of people to thank for my change. The whole world feels so much more hopeful when you believe that change can happen. Happiness comes before success, not the other way around. #changeisgood #shawnanchor #happiness

A little painting this morning...#shawnanchor #createsomethingeveryday
Day 361 - 5.6 miles - This quote has been spinning in my head recently as I get close to the end of my year of running, reflect, and look forward. Running every day has made me more aware, more grateful, and definitely happy. #arunadayeveryday #runtheyear2017 #runstreak #runeveryday #happiness #wednesdaywisdom
You guys. I have really, really struggled when people ask me what makes me happy. My family? sure - but I have always hated the idea having someone ELSE responsible for MY happiness. It has never seemed fair to them. My health? sure - but in my gut, I always knew that wasn’t it - or at least not all of it. My career as a collegiate athlete? Proud of those sweat and tears - but not my source of happiness - those days are long gone. . And then I heard this - the ancient Greeks' definition of happiness: “the joy you feel striving toward your potential.” . Now, we’re talking. It was a cliche, fist-pumping “ah-ha” moment. It was like YASSSS. I am rising up on a mission to lift the burden of childhood obesity - I’m building, leading, and moving forward. THIS. . This is what is my happiness. This mission, this journey, this pushing outside my comfort zone to uncover, unearth who I can be. Who YOU can be. And all those steps along the way? There in lies the happiness. #behappy #shawnanchor @supersoul .

Listened to @oprah #soulsunday w #shawnanchor on my drive. Studies show this to be true. Happiness is knowing you have potential and then working to achieve it. Just like our rubberband challenge-happiness is in the power of ‘could be’!
P o t e n t i a l Reflecting back on a pretty significant year whilst gearing up for Christmas fun with family. I have learnt a lot this year, and whilst it hasn’t all been smooth sailing, I’ve put a lot of energy into moving forward and practicing acceptance when things are a bit stuck. Here’s to finding happiness and gratitude in the day-to-day 🥂✨ • • • • • #declutterwithhannah #eastlondon #declutter #london #professionalorganiser #clutter #overwhelm #calm #simplify #organise #getorganised #apdouk #livewithintention #intentionalliving #livesimple #parenting #simpleparenting #family #minimalism #slowliving #minimalismwithfamily #raisinggirls #goals #priority #habits #betterthanbefore #gratitude #happiness #shawnanchor
@supersoul is killing it with Oprah’s most recent podcast. It’s all about happiness and the journey of happiness. If you only think happiness comes from success or reaching/attaining a goal then you have misinterpreted happiness. Happiness comes in working towards something positive and fulfilling. Shawn Anchor shared a quote that explains this well. He shared that happiness is “the joy you feel while striving towards your potential.” Great episode. If you love Podcasts, check this one out for sure!
Recommending the Happiness Advantage to your office and 7 principles that will change your mind because we are proof it is working!😊 #peoplefirst #pizza #happy #happiness #lunch #book #reading #joy #attitude #office #eat #laughwhileyouwork #happinessadvantage #shawnanchor
"The reason willpower is so ineffective at sustaining change is that the more we use it the more worn-out it gets." 🤔 • Recently I've withdrawn more from my willpower savings account than I had stored. I was reminded of this quote from Shawn Anchor's Happiness Advantage. It means that each person only has a certain amount of willpower to help get through each day. If we use every ounce of our willpower to avoid eating enticing foods than the will power banks are empty when we need the mental energy to succeed at work or in class. 🙌🏻 • I witnessed this situation during my efforts to detox the past 10 days. I really enjoyed the physical and mental benefits of a dietary cleanse but my mind and will power went to food prep, self discipline and avoidance. These healthy efforts took away from my efforts at work and with patient care. I'm happy to be giving 100% of myself again to my patients this week! 💪🏻 • • • ⚛️🕉☯️ • • • #chiroyogaflow #chiropractic #truth #clinical #focus #progress #priorities #thatswhyitscalledpractice #heartchakra #shawnanchor #happiness #advantage #goodreads #goodquotes #quoteoftheday #motivationalquotes #willpower #bank #bankaccount #withdrawals #deposits #balance #patientscomefirst #yogamindset #restoration
What do you want to change? Your health, your career, even your thought pattern. Change can be a very good thing. #changeforthebetter #takecontrol #shawnanchor #yleo #DropsofCabinLife
Self Care Challenge Day 4: Watch a Ted Talk. I watched @shawnachor talk about the happiness advantage. He is very witty & I love how he explains how stress can be viewed positively not just as a bad thing. " The more you believe in your own ability to succeed, the more likely it is that you will." How true is that??!! 😊 Anyone have any Ted talks they would recommend? #shawnanchor , #tedtalk , #selfcarechallenge , #breathingspaceyogastudiofredericton
At times I've been angry and frustrated and I have even complained more than once about the package - my package. Who wants the package you didn't plan for? • You can complain or you can plan to not complain anymore and change your emphasis. Shawn Achor says this in his book, The Happiness Advantage, " . . . we see what we look for, and we miss the rest." What are you looking for? • Are you looking at your package or are you looking to see what your package can become? Do not miss seeing the future God has for you by staring at the now. The "now" may be preparing you for your future. •
Here are three ways I have found you can change your emphasis, thus your life: • Decide to do at least one thing on an ongoing basis that inspires you. • Do not let the scarcity of time, money, clean dishes or encouragement stop you. There is always a version of your dream that you can practice and pursue now. • Keep showing up to do number one and number two even when it's hard or your heart and soul will shrivel up into hopelessness. • Join me over on the blog to read more www.faithcaffeine.com or see the link in my profile. • #neverstop #faithcaffeine #practiceaversionofyourdream #practicewhatinspiresyou #weseewhatwelookfor #emphasischange #doonething #thehappinessadvantage #shawnanchor #practiceyourdreams #keepgoing #scarcitydoesnotrule #donotcomplain #useyourgift #useyourgifts #godhasgoodplansforyou #future #practiceandpursue #believeanddo

The Happiness Advantage by Shawn Anchor. Another awesome book with an orange cover! (See previous post re: The Subtle Art or Not Giving a F*ck by Mark Manson.) I humbly suggest and highly recommend reading these two books together as a sweet double whammy. #bookworm #leadersarereaders #happinessadvantage #bookstagram #shawnanchor #markmanson #notgivingafuck #bossbabe #csakreads

For many years, I was a workaholic. A successful business woman always challenging myself to get the next sale and make a ton of money. I rarely had FUN. It took a health challenge, a fertility challenge and a spiritual awakening to realize that life is nothing without daily HAPPINESS. I have found the balance between work and play and my passion now is to support others to take mad-love-action on their dreams through a concept I call #holisticproductivity Balancing #mindbodyspirit everyday in order to feel fulfilled and truly ALIVVVVVE. 🏋️‍♀️ #everythinghappensforareason #lifeismagical #goddesstime
Train your brain to #bepositive just like you would your body! #shawnanchor
Amazing TED talk I watched today. Shawn Anchor talks about Positive Psychology. One of the keys takes from his TED Talk is that 90% of your long term happiness is not predicted by your external environment, it is predicted by the way your brain processes it. Therefore change can be made towards increased happiness by adjusting your lense to focus on the positives in your world. He is a fast talker and funny guy... so find some time to view his amazing talk.

In an article published in Success From Home magazine, Advisor Shawn Anchor explains: When we are happy-when our mindset and mood are positive- we are smarter, more motivated, and thus more successful. Happiness is the center, and success revolves around it. #successfromhome #shawnanchor #happinessquotes #happinessiskey #thriveinlife #positivevibes #healthymind #positivemind #positivity
