Positive psychology as tool for high performance

Positive psychology is not about feeling happy all the time. It is about accepting doubts, seat backs before each time they occur move forward. It is about sending to yourself ‘reminders’ that whatever we do, whatever the adversity is, there is a positive learning experience for us that will build our future successes and make us feel good. This is about remembering ourself the ‘big picture’ and how objectively the particular situation we’re going through fit in there. For instance, how fit one single meeting for which you felt disappointed about your own performance compared to the number of meetings of this kind you will have in your entire career? How important is an un-successful single ice-hockey game compared to 60 games ice-hockey players play in a season? Positive psychology is about being disciplined enough to not fall into the trap to lose track about the real importance of things.
