Authentic Happiness
Using the New Positive Psychology to Realize Your Potential for Lasting Fulfillment
by: Martin E. P. Seligman, Ph.D.

In Authentic Happiness, Seligman introduces the scientifically based idea of "Positive Psychology." Positive Psychology focuses on strength rather than on weakness. Suggesting that happiness is not the result of good genes or luck instead it can be cultivated from within. The author points out that we possess ‘signature strengths'; kindness, originality, humor optimism, and generosity and by calling upon these strengths, we develop a natural buffer against misfortune and negative emotion. As a result, we are in a more positive place, a happy place! Are you looking to cultivate that happy place within you? Consider checking out this book or one of the many resources available in The Karen Yontz Women's Cardiac Awareness Center. We look forward to meeting you.
