Robert Shaw, CEO & Founder of the International Institute for Innovation, will talk to us about the value of gratitude:
What determines our happiness? We use the term happiness to refer to the broad human experience of feeling joy, contentment and positive well-being, combined with a sense that a life is meaningful and worthwhile. From Aristotle to Freud, writers and researchers have tried to understand what constitutes optimum happiness in life. Recent research in the field of “positive psychology” suggests that we all have a fixed “happiness set-point” responsible for about 50% of our happiness. Another 10% is defined by our personal and financial circumstances such as our income, possessions and where we live (academics call this “objective well-being”). The good news is the remaining 40% of our happiness can be intentionally shaped and represents the greatest opportunity for personal growth.
