What is Positive Psychology?
Sportsmen hang on to Tony Robbins’ motivational words to go for extra miles. Entrepreneurs use leadership wisdom from Robin Sharma to lead their organization. Realtor study about Donald Trump for their negotiating skills. Investors learn some lessons about investing through Robert Kiyosaki programs. Lessons from The Alchemist about achieving dreams. People using the Silva Method to empowering the ability of their brain. Pictures on Facebook on some unfortunate kids who made their way up through. Friends who is there giving you motivational speech and assure you that you will make it in life.
Nowadays, these things mentioned above are trendy. Somehow I wonder, does these can be measured? If these can’t be measured, how reliable are these teachings are to be used for the masses?
I’ve made more readings and research to answer my questions of reliability and credibility. Until one fine day I stumbled into a book. The book is about POSITIVE PSYCHOLOGY (more on that book in future posts).
Psychology is a branch of science (hence the foundation of its credibility). Positive psychology is a new branch of psychology that emerge just a few years back. Unlike most conventional papers in psychology field that focus on problems and how to solve them, positive psychology focuses on WHAT WORKS.
Positive psychology did not deny the importance of setbacks and finding ways to pull the setbacks back to ordinary, but positive psychology too do emphasis on THE IMPORTANCE OF GREAT THINGS, how they can be great.
And this blog is all about PP.
