Positive Psychology is a science-based body of evidence that focuses on character strengths and behaviors that allow individuals to build a life of meaning and purpose. Positive Psychology goes beyond just feeling good; it emphasizes meaning and deep satisfaction in life.
When we add positive psychology to coaching it allows us to have a better understanding of ourselves and allows us to reframe situations into something that can motivate us to keep moving forward to try new things.
By using our strengths, we get a good amount of positivity. However, we don’t always know what those strengths are. Learning to uncover them and use them makes you happier, which increases your motivation and opens up possibilities.
Scanning our days for positive patterns , can give us more energy, more ability to forgive, and less depression or loneliness.
The more you scan and find positive things, the more you’ll expect good things. This cultivated optimism is predictive of goal performance and resilience.
Those with a purpose are happier and visioning your end point helps you achieve your goal .
Create goals that you want to advance towards, not away from things you don’t want.
Often identifying barriers is only the beginning of discovering what might be holding you back from success.
