Experts have concluded that happiness at work is closely correlated with greater performance and productivity as well as greater energy, better reviews, faster promotion, higher income, better health and increased happiness with life. So it’s good for organizations and individuals, too.”
According to Pryce-Jones who conducted a reserch with her team at iOpener showed said that, “The happiest employees are 180% more energized than their less content colleagues, 155% happier with their jobs, 150% happier with life, 108% more engaged and 50% more motivated. Most staggeringly, they are 50% more productive too.”
Surely, as the bible says A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a broken spirit saps a person’s strength. (Proverbs 17:22)
Happiness is a result of choice. Joy is not something that comes by receiving something from somewhere or by experiencing something. On the other hand unhappiness is not a matter of receiving bad news or by going through unpleasant experience. Happiness, as King David suggested, is a result of being grateful – finding a good, positive perspective to be thankful for about what you have or about the experience you are going through.
The best way to be grateful is to be mindful of people that are less priviledged than you are. For example if you’re unhappy with your job for whatever reason think about those without a job like yours. By taking the trouble of walking in the shoes of those going through tougher times you give yourself a good reason to be grateful for your own predicament and consequently improve your own chances of overall improvement.
This Today may you be happy, energised and prosperous.
