9781504694896: The Happiness Track: How to Apply the Science of Happiness to Accelerate Your Success

In The Happiness Track, Emma Seppala explains that our inability to achieve sustainable fulfillment is tied to common but outdated notions about success. We are taught that getting ahead means doing everything that's thrown at us and that achievement cannot happen without stress. Drawing on the latest findings from the fields of cognitive psychology and neuroscience, Seppala shows that finding happiness and fulfillment may, in fact, be the most productive thing we can do to thrive professionally. Filled with practical advice on how to apply these scientific findings to our daily lives, The Happiness Track is a life-changing guide to fast tracking our success.

From the Back Cover:

Everyone wants happiness and success, yet the pursuit of both has never been more elusive. As work and personal demands rise, we try to keep up by juggling everything better, moving faster, and doing more. While we might succeed in the short term, this approach comes at a high cost in the long term: it hurts our well-being, our relationships, and—paradoxically—our productivity.

In this life-changing book, Emma Seppälä explains that the reason we are burning ourselves out is that we fall for outdated theories of success. We are taught that getting ahead means doing everything that’s thrown at us with razor-sharp focus and iron discipline, that success depends on our drive and talents, and that achievement cannot happen without stress.

The Happiness Track demolishes these counterproductive theories. Drawing on the latest scientific research on happiness, resilience, willpower, compassion, positive stress, creativity, and mindfulness,

Seppälä demonstrates that being happy is the most productive thing we can do to thrive—whether at work or at home. She shares practical strategies for applying these scientific findings to our daily lives.

A fulfilling, successful, and anxiety-free life is within your reach. The Happiness Track will show you the way.

The best news of all? All these skills are well within your grasp.”—Daniel H. Pink, author of Drive and A Whole New Mind

“For decades we’ve been tied to theories of success that have burned us out and driven us into the ground—because we don’t know of any alternatives.
