Where Does Your Success Come From?

  • 25% of job success comes from IQ
  • 75% of job success comes from optimism levels, social support systems, and your brain’s ability to see stress as a challenge.
  • Why the Happiness Formula is backwards
  • I could not agree more. The mind set used to view a situation as a problem, is different from a mind set that sees the problem more as a challenge. It will require a different approach, which will then produce a different outcome. What we think about, affects our emotions, which then influences our behavior, followed by negative or positive results.

  • I agree that optimism is one of the keys to success. If you are tired and stressed from working hard on the job,, you can't enjoy the fruits of your labor. More is needed.

  • I agree with her- as I have personally found this to be true. You can work yourself in the ground thinking you are being successful- but many times find at the end, you have really just been spinning your wheels. You've exhausted everything you had to find your happy and gird up for your next challenge. You have to take time to find meaning outside of your desk.
