I don’t know about you, but my bad moods get me nowhere. When I am happy, I feel energized and inspired. In The Science of Positive Thinking: How Positive Thoughts Build Skills, Boost Health, and Improve Work, James Clear analyzes why being positive and happy helps us build positive and long-lasting momentum.
