We’re naturally wired to focus on all the negative things in our work and lives.  This isn’t our fault! It’s largely due to our important survival instinct designed to keep us alert for problems and danger.  But in today’s world, there are very few life and death situations compared to prehistoric times, so we need a better balance. 

The rapidly expanding field of Positive Psychology is finding ways to help us override our negative bias and also see the good all around us.  The problem is many of us don’t realize we have this ability, yet the truth is in every moment we have a choice The strategies and insights in this book are designed to make that choice easier.
