    Happiness At Work: Be Resilient, Motivated And Successful - No Matter What shows readers how to be resilient, stay motivated, and be successful even during rough economic and personal crunches.

    Summary Of The Book

    Happiness At Work: Be Resilient, Motivated And Successful - No Matter What is based on the author’s course at Columbia University Business School. The book deals with personal development as much as with success in career, and it argues that the two are in fact closely interrelated. The course as well as the book essentially talks about how we can create joy even when things may not be going well in our lives.

    The book brings home the point that many of the upheavals in life are beyond our control, but the way we react to these unpleasant changes is still in our hands. The book argues that in spite of the bad things that happen in our lives, we can still be successful if we chose to. It also reveals to readers the vital wisdom that they require in order to achieve joy and success in their lives through a stronger inner self and a greater resilient force.

    Happiness At Work: Be Resilient, Motivated And Successful - No Matter What shows readers that their unhappiness is not a result of the negative things that might be happening in their lives, rather it is caused by how they perceive those negative things. While the ideas presented in the book show a strong Buddhist influence, the book in itself is presented in a simple and straightforward way to which anyone can relate to, especially in the context of the current global economic crises.

    Happiness At Work: Be Resilient, Motivated And Successful - No Matter What is altogether a thought provoking book that channels the mind away from negativity and forces the readers to see things neutrally instead of generalizing them as bad. The book features concise and interesting chapters of two to three pages along with thought provoking exercises.

    Watch the video instead

    I don't know if the book came first or the video but buying the book is unnecessary if you watched the video.

    Nowadays everything is readily available in the "videoed" format instead of the "book" format for ready consumption.
