How Positive Are You?

People who have over 3 times more positive emotions than negative ones are far more likely to be happy and successful.

As Dr. Barbara Fredrickson says "negativity breeds health-damaging negative emotions – like anger, contempt, and depression – which seep into your entire body. You can feel the simmering bitterness eating away at your stomach, raising your blood pressure, and turning your shoulder and neck muscles to stone."

A positivity ratio of 3-to-1 of positive emotions to negative ones appears to be a tipping point enabling people to achieve far beyond what they thought they could.

Below is her list of positive emotions:

Joy, Gratitude, Serenity, Interest, Hope, Pride, Amusement, Inspiration, Awe, Love.

 

You can see what your positivity ratio is now by using this simple online tool.
