キーポイント
See what we’re finding is it’s not necessarily the reality that shapes us, but the lens through which your brain views the world that shapes your reality. And if we can change the lens, not only can we change your happiness, we can change every single educational and business outcome at the same time.

現実が私たちを形づけているのではなく、
自分のレンズからみた世界が自分の現実を形づけているんだ。
自分のレンズを変えることができれば、世界が変わるよ。

データ的なもの
I can only predict 10 percent of your long-term happiness. 90 percent of your long-term happiness is predicted not by the external world, but by the way your brain processes the world. And if we change it, if we change our formula for happiness and success, what we can do is change the way that we can then affect reality. What we found is that only 25 percent of job successes are predicted by I.Q. 75 percent of job successes are predicted by your optimism levels, your social support and your ability to see stress as a challenge instead of as a threat.

他人の幸せの10%は予想することができるけど、90%は予想できない。
幸せのほとんどは自分自身の中にある。

仕事で成功するかどうかは、
25%だけ頭の良さで決まり、残りの75%は楽天的でいられるかどうか、仲間のサポートが得られるかどうか、ストレスをチャレンジとみるか脅威とみるかで決まる。

Your brain at positive is 31 percent more productive than your brain at negative, neutral or stressed. You’re 37 percent better at sales. Doctors are 19 percent faster,

ポジティブだとネガティブに比べて仕事の効率が31%あがる。

成功しても幸せになれない理由
成功する → もっと成功しようとする → 成功する → もっと成功しようとする → 無限ループ
成功を主点におくと、幸せが遠のく。

そこで考え方を変える
幸せになる → 成功しやすくなる

幸せになる5つの方法

1) Three new things that they’re grateful for for 21 days in a row.
2) Journaling about one positive experience you’ve had over the past 24 hours
3) Exercise teaches your brain that your behavior matters.
4) Meditation allows your brain to get over the cultural ADHD that we’ve been creating by trying to do multiple tasks at once and allows our brains to focus on the task at hand.
5) Random acts of kindness are conscious acts of kindness.

英単語の例文

When I was seven years old and my sister was just five years old, we were playing on top of a bunk bed.
bunk bed : 2段ベッド

I had put out all of my G.I. Joe soldiers and weaponry.
weaponry : 兵器

And on the other side were all my sister’s My Little Ponies ready for a cavalry charge.
cavalry : 騎兵隊

Now I nervously peered over the side of the bed to see what had befallen my fallen sister and saw that she had landed painfully on her hands and knees on all fours on the ground.
peer over : のぞきこむ
befall : ふりかかる

And seeing as how I had accidentally broken Amy’s arm just one week before.
seeing as how : 〜だから

And you could see how my poor, manipulated sister faced conflict, as her little brain attempted to devote resources to feeling the pain and suffering and surprise she just experienced, or contemplating her new-found identity as a unicorn.
contemplate : 考え込む

What we stumbled across at this tender age of just five and seven — we had no idea at the time — was something that was going be at the vanguard of a scientific revolution occurring two decades later in the way that we look at the human brain.
stumble across : でくわす
tender age : 幼い歳
vanguard : 先駆け

Which is fantastic if I’m trying to find out how many Advil the average person should be taking — two.
Advil : アドビル(鎮痛剤)

We tailor the class right towards the average.
tailor : 調整する

And what I posit and what positive psychology posits is that if we study what is merely average, we will remain merely average.
posit : 仮定する

Why is it that some of you are so high above the curve in terms of your intellectual ability, athletic ability, musical ability, creativity, energy levels, your resiliency in the face of challenge, your sense of humor?
resiliency : 弾力性

Because maybe we can glean information — not just how to move people up to the average, but how we can move the entire average up in our companies and schools worldwide.
glean : 集める

I have leprosy.
leprosy : ハンセン病

But I had no idea how to console poor Bobo because he had just gotten over an entire week of menopause.
menopause : 更年期

Their brain was focused on the competition, the workload, the hassles, the stresses, the complaints.
hassle : 面倒ごと

So every year, instead of just teaching our students, we also have a wellness week.
wellness : 健康でいること

Thursday night is elicit drug use.
elicit : 引き起こす

That undergirds most of our parenting styles, our managing styles, the way that we motivate our behavior.
undergird : 補強する

Journaling about one positive experience you’ve had over the past 24 hours allows your brain to relive it.
relive : 追体験する

And by doing these activities and by training your brain just like we train our bodies, what we’ve found is we can reverse the formula for happiness and success, and in doing so, not only create ripples of positivity, but create a real revolution.
ripple : さざなみをたてる
