Shawn Achor wrote a book called "The Happiness Advantage of Seven Principles of Positive Psychology that Focuses on Success and Success at Work." He discusses the original idea, and I have never even heard of growth called after injury. The term growth after injury is a reliable new concept and is defined as the experience of positive changes that occur as a result of the struggle and the very demanding life crisis. The benefits are endless and among them there is an increased sense of personal strength, change of priorities and richer existence and spiritual life.
I love the foundation of the book, and he mentions the research rule called "falling apart". "It's a group of people called" positive stranger "- who has great optimism and success – and fail to get interest despite injury, but because of it," he writes.
Shawn protests his readers to test this short positive psychology experiment:
Take out a magazine and write three of the biggest interest rates in your life.
It did not take me a long time to prevent myself from going to school very late in life and a car accident.
Shawn officially works in 45 countries around the world. The results in this exercise show that 90% of the answers were about a very stressful period of change. They include going to college, studying abroad, playing in the finals, stopping one job to find better, birth of a child and even depression. The biggest moments of growth are experienced due to stress and change.
For me, going to start, going back to school and car accident, were traumatic, but it's not the end of history. After I came across this scenario, I thought "what now?"
There is actually a lot of research on individuals who experience the worst traumatic growth you can imagine: heart attack, breast cancer and military battle. But this can really be a catalyst for change. It has actually prompted many individuals to get their priorities in line. We know all the people who have done this and it has not been remarkable to witness their progress. Some have been and continue to be a great inspiration for me. In my case, losing work leads to a change of career and one that actually complies with my core policy and values. Shawn believes that if you've experienced a trauma, find one concrete action – something you know you can do – to reduce the negative emotions related to the shock.
On September 11, 2001, Patti Austin's singer had booked an internal flight in the United States but had to cancel the trip due to the imposition of obligations. The flight was allegedly abducted by terrorists and was a crash to kill everyone on board, it was a way to target the White House. She thought that if she had been on the flight, it would have been, and as the person she had realized, would God have had bigger plans for her life. She changed her attitude and realized that she had to do the best she had in dealing with health problems that had the greatest impact on her life. So she made her mind lose 40 pounds. by bypass surgery. This culminates her brain "work" and allows her to move on.
What makes our way of creating a positive change in our lives? We are afraid of change, and some have become independent. When you change your mindset, you change your habits. The key to interest came when I saw an optimistic version instead of a pessimistic version of what really happened in these events.
We were taught the formula to succeed at a young age. If we work hard, we will succeed and if we succeed we will be happy. If that were true then if we can only find this great opportunity, win this next promotion, lose them ten pounds, then the happiness will follow. We all know this is not the case. Is happiness fuel success? No, this term is completely backward. When we are positive, our hearts become more participant, creative, inspiring, energetic, resilient and productive at work and in life. And rigorous research on psychology and neuroscience, governance and lower-level institutions around the world proves it.
Having a trauma in our lives is not always fun – but it's the beginning of the story and does not have to be the end. Those who thrive claim that their behavior is still important and that growth is still possible.
