How does your brain evaluate the world?  Do you see challenges as a threat, or an opportunity for discovery?  If you believe that success = happiness, you will chase the tail of happiness and never obtain it.  Think about it.  If you make a sales quota, your boss will probably increase the quota for next month.  If you get a raise, by next year, you’ll want more.

What about happiness? Joy?  God gave us Dopamine, a simple organic chemical that, not only makes us feel good, but turns all the learning centers on in your brain!  You want to work smarter?  Make joy a part of your life–choose joy.  The world is full of suffering and tragedy. How can we practice joy? Enjoy this funny TED talk with some tips! I promise you will have a good laugh!
