Shawn Achor Talks Happiness and Success on Rich Dad Radio

Shawn Achor recently appeared as a guest on Rich Dad Radio with host Robert Kiyosaki, the best selling author of Rich Dad Poor Dad.

Scottsdale, AZ – July 22 2015 – Shawn Achor, best-selling author of “The Happiness Advantage”, appeared as a guest on Rich Dad Radio with host Robert Kiyosaki to discuss how happiness fuels success.

Many people believe that if they were wealthy, they’d be happier. Achor explains during this show that success doesn’t bring happiness; happiness brings success. Achor says, “The greatest competitive advantage in the modern economy is actually a positive and engaged brain. When the brain is positive, our research shows a 37% rise in sales, productive energy rose 31% and a likelihood of a promotion rose by 40%.”

Kiyosaki asked Achor to explain why people aren’t happy, he replied, “Because people are willing to sacrifice happiness in the present [and they think] if they can achieve some goal then they’ll be happier.”

Achor says people can choose happiness by changing habits for just 21 days. Three things everyone can do are:

For 21 days in a row, think of three new things that you’re grateful for, and be specific about it

Switch from multi-tasking to single-tasking for just two minutes a day by taking your hands off your keyboard and watching your breath go in and out

For 21 days in a row, write a positive email or text message to someone thanking them or praising them for something

Achor’s TED Talk is one of the most popular of all time with over 9 million views, and his lecture airing on PBS has been seen by millions. His Happiness Advantage training is the largest and most successful positive psychology corporate training program to date in the world.
