In today's work environment it's become the norm to come across more and more employees who are very unhappy at work. Many will say, it's due to recent work related changes, coping with difficult leadership, downsizing, working on conflict plagued teams, the economy, the current national unemployment rate, unfavorable changes at home, health issues, personal toxic habits, or they simply do not like their job. These are definitely factors that can zap and plummet a person's "Happiness" levels over time.

Even in the midst of uncertain and undesired challenges—you can recapture and reignite "Happiness" at work. It will require your positive mental toughness and inspired change of perspective. From this point forward, I want you to shift your thinking from what your organization and everyone else has to do for you to be happy at work to what you will immediately begin doing so you can recapture and enjoy "Happiness" at work.

Now that you've shifted your thinking, I find it timely to provide you with my "15 Quick Tips to Recapturing and Reigniting Your Happiness at Work."
