Das Glück werde überbewertet – diese provozierende Aussage vertritt Professor Martin Seligman in seinem neuen Buch. Jahrelang dachte er, wenn es Therapeuten gelinge, die Menschen von ihrem Leid zu befreien, seien sie glücklich. Weit gefehlt: Viele waren ihr Symptom zwar los, deswegen aber noch lange nicht glücklich. Wissenschaftliche Studien bescheinigen der Positiven Psychologie enorme Effizienz beim Einsatz in Wirtschaft, Erziehung, Therapie und Politik. Aber auch im Coaching stößt die Positive Psychologie auf große Resonanz, auch hier sind die einfach zu handhabenden Interventionen sehr alltagstauglich. Die Kernfrage lautet: Was verhilft uns zu einem geglückten Leben? Für den Pionier und Mitbegründer der Positiven Psychologie Martin Seligman basieren Glück und Wohlbefinden auf fünf Säulen: Positive Emotionen spüren, Engagement bringen, statt sich v.a. um sich selbst zu drehen, Beziehungen und Verbundensein mit anderen Menschen, Sinn im Leben erkennen und etwas leisten und Kompetenz entwickeln. In der englischen Version ergeben die Anfangsbuchstaben dieser fünf Säulen ein gutes Merkwort: PERMA. Die fünf Säulen für persönliches Wohlbefinden Glück ist nicht genug Martin Seligman: Der Sigmund Freud des 21. Jahrhunderts »Das optimistische Manifest« (New Scientist) endlich auf Deutsch!

Flourish: A new understanding of Life's Greatest Goals- and what it takes to reach them. In this groundbreaking book, one of the world's foremost academic psychologists- and founder of the Positive Psychology movement- offers a new theory on what makes people flourish and how to truly get the most out of life. Eight years have passed since the publication of Dr Seligman's internationally bestselling Authentic Happiness. As a highly esteemed psychologist, Dr Seligman has been on the cutting edge of psychological research for over two decades, pioneering a science that improves people's lives. And now, with his most life-changing book yet, Flourish, he offers a new theory of individual satisfaction and global purpose. In a fascinating evolution of thought, Flourish, refines what Positive Psychology is all about and offers inspiring stories of Positive Psychology in action- innovative schools that add resilience to their curricula, with a case study of Geelong Grammar in particular: a new theory of success and intelligence; and evidence on how positive physical health can turn medicine on its head. Building on his game-changing work on optimism, motivation, and character, Dr Seligman shows us how to flourish and bring well being into our own lives.

Despite our desire to flourish, many women, myself included, often hesitate to go straight to the source of all strength, the Word of God. Yet God promises, If you seek me, you will find me (Jeremiah 29:13). Theres no better way to know the character of God than to dive straight into the Bible. Nearly four years ago, I finally dove straight in, beginning my journey with the Lord through the entirety of his Word. As I share what the Lord has taught me with honesty, redemptive vulnerability, and a dash of self-deprecating humor, my hope is that you will read this and say, Ah, me too! And, wheres my Bible? My hearts desire is for all of us to walk in the fullness of life God has for us, to become deeply rooted in the Word, and to be able to say together, I have seen the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living (Psalm 27:13).

In Flourish, award-winning CEO Dr. Rachel Talton takes women leaders on a powerful journey toward having it all without sacrificing their authentic selves. Compelling personal stories, rigorous research and experiential exercises help successful women stop hiding fear, guilt and overwhelm behind their Golden Masks, giving them a specific strategy to flourish. Redefining success with integrity to themselves with purpose, connection, contribution and legacy. Women leaders are often torn between seeking success, influence, impact and contribution in their organizations and the marketplace, and having a thriving family and personal life. They find that their desire to contribute professionally and personally often relegates a back seat to self-care, self-worth and wellbeing. In fact, the data show that many women who attain one or two of the traditional metrics of success find themselves sorely lacking in others, and often suffering in silence beneath a beautiful suit, great shoes, powerful title and the shiny, meticulously applied Golden Mask. Dr. Rachel builds upon years of executive experience, organizational and consumer research and expertise guiding Fortune 500 organizations and leaders to craft a powerfully practical guide to flourishing. She tells her own story and the stories of other women leaders who inspire as they turn sometimes tragic life events into triumphs. Through this book, Dr. Rachel takes readers on an experiential journey through the six dimensions of their lives to flourish - to grow luxuriantly and to prosper.

Why does the U.S. stagnate and how do we bridge our cultural divide? ​What causes some populations to flourish and others to subsist? What perspectives and practices optimize our well-being? Author Mark Bitz has been thinking about these questions for over forty years. The answers to them have been millions of years in the making; they come from the evolution of life, the human condition, our Judeo-Christian heritage, scientific findings, the American experiment, and numerous cultures. They involve certain perspectives and practices and their prevalence within populations. Bitz has found the answers to these questions in the one thousand books that he has read and the fifty states and over forty countries that he has visited. The Flourish series explains the answers to these questions. This book describes the Winning Perspectives that lead to critical Winning Practices. The three other Flourish books describe how these Winning Practices improve the effectiveness of individuals, families, groups, enterprises, and governments.
