Master Key Experience – Week 18
Keys to Happiness (and Success)
Remember that we’ve been studying how to implement change in our lives? There is scientific proof for some of the methods suggested in the Master Key Experience. According to studies started at Harvard University, research over the past 30 years in what is now called “positive psychology” has found that people who are happy perform better- up to 37% better in relationships, acquaintances, and in business.
Most people think that if we work harder we will become successful, and when we become successful we will be happy. In reality, it’s the other way around. We need to reverse the formula for happiness and success.
Every time your brain has a success, you’ve just changed what the goalpost of success looked like. Whatever that was, it has now become the next bigger or better thing. If happiness is on the opposite side of success, your brain will never get there. We’ve pushed our idea of success over our mind’s horizon.
A Happiness Advantage
What we know now is that our brains work in just the reverse. At positive, it performs significantly better than at negative, neutral, or stressed. Intelligence, creativity, energy levels all rise. This is caused by Dopamine, which flows into your brain when it is in “the positive.” It makes you happier, and turns on all the learning centers of your brain, allowing you to adapt to the world in a different way.
Here are ways that were found to retrain your brain to become more positive- tiny habits every day, taking only a few minutes, for 21 days in a row.
