Imagine yourself standing outside a hospital room, where a member of your family is being treated for a serious condition. You see a poster on the wall across the room: Choose happiness…
You have 2 options: the first one is to allow yourself to sink into the angst and worry that your darkest fear might materialize – losing your loved one. The OTHER option is to look up to the sky at the ultimate source of light, the sun… and allow yourself to remember that there is an infinite source of gratitude and hope inside all of us, a source of positive emotion, which is always there for you, which never ends…
And with this story, we begin our journey – create a movement of nurturing a growth mindset, a shift towards learned optimism, through our programs, which are based on scientific research and applications of Positive Psychology.
