Smiling in the morning!
Work life is unfortunately not a paved road towards success. Personal and team dynamics are usually at play within complex organizational structures and under the wider umbrella of a constantly-changing world. Expecting a straight series of successes is an illusion bound to be proven unfounded.
Bad things happen. Resources are cut, competition reacts faster, people quit, technology and systems change, priorities are adjusted, one-timers hit the bottom line. So how do you react? How long does it take to get back on your feet? How long before you are re-energized to effectively address new challenges?
Experience from more than 20 years in the corporate world, reveals that there is a group of people that "smile in the morning". No matter what comes and goes, they somehow find a way to keep their calm, preserve their energy, produce results and keep smiling. Especially in the morning!
Positive psychology, a growing field focusing on the study of strengths and virtues that enable individuals and communities to thrive (in contrast with traditional psychology, which focuses on human deficits and how to alleviate them), explains why this happens. There are those of us with high Positivity. In other words, with high levels of happiness and well-being. Furthermore Positive psychology proves that positivity is a skill; it can be developed through practice.
