As successful chiropractors, we are blessed by the ability to share time and gifts with family and friends this Holiday season. For most of us, the greatest joy comes not from receiving another white box, but rather from seeing the excitement on someone else’s face when they open our gift to them. Delivering happiness makes Santa’s job awesome! What if we could learn to capture and continually reproduce happiness? Check out this very funny and enlightening TED Talk by Harvard trained psychologist Shawn Achor that provides a recipe for doing just that. Click to watch:
Dr. Achor’s talk centers around the theory that “It is not necessarily the reality of your world that shapes you, but the lens through which you view that reality- and if you change that lens, you can change reality.” Relating that to our career, researchers have determined that only 25% of job success is linked to IQ- the remainder arises from optimism, particularly the “…ability to see stress as a challenge instead of a threat”, and having a social support system to manage inevitable challenges. ChiroUp is honored to serve as part of your social support system- a fellowship of like-minded professionals who share their recipe’s for clinical and business success. We wish you and your family great happiness this Holiday season and we look forward to being your partner in growth and happiness for many years to come.
