Last week at Alan Weiss' Million Dollar Consulting Convention, I heard Dr. Martin Seligman speak on building well-being and optimism in the workplace. 

Dr. Seligman is known as the founder of Positive Psychology and the author of several ground-breaking books, including "Authentic Happiness" and "Flourish."

For more than 30 years, this renowned psychologist has studied why some people are happier than others and how that affects every facet of their lives. His resilience training with soldiers and their families has helped them turn trauma into growth.

Here are two simple ways that could help you be more positive.

1) If writing in a gratitude journal doesn't appeal to you, try this twist. At the end of the day, list three good things and take a moment to reflect on them. It could be something that happened or didn't happen, a conversation or an insight. As long as you perceive it as "a good thing," this simple practice will help you counter negativity bias which often leads to fear, pessimism and inaction. 

2) Use your "Signature Strengths," which are character strengths that define you, to overcome challenges. Dr. Seligman gave the example of a waitress who hated her job but learned to enjoy it and excel once she focused on her signature strength of connecting with people as she served them. You might already know your strengths from various assessments or the StrengthsFinder model or you could take Seligman's free Personality Strengths Test

LinkedIn Wisdom
Molloy Communications  
Way before I was a professional speaker, I was a marketing consultant. In fact, I started Molloy Communications when I was just a child back in 1988. 

While I focus mostly on speaking these days, there is one area of marketing I continue to do because it's so rewarding for me and in demand by professionals who want to get noticed. I audit LinkedIn profiles. That means I recommend ways to make your profile more effective and write compelling copy and client testimonials to set you apart.

Since you're probably on LinkedIn, I share a strategy each week to help ensure your profile is the best reflection of you.

LinkedIn Wisdom #5: Your Summary 
The Summary is one of the most important sections of your profile. It's most effective if you write it conversationally in first person, like you are speaking to that prospective employer, client or referral source. Include keywords that will help in searches and use a few bullets so your main message stands out. 


Have You Heard What They're Saying?
"Simple but brilliant! That's Tricia Molloy's 'Work-Life Balance Wisdom' program. 


"Tricia spoke to more than 600 AT&T employees at our headquarters in Dallas and via webcast to AT&T offices throughout the country. She got us to think about our lives in a different way. Her empowering message struck a chord with so many of us, regardless of our level or lifestyle. We followed up the event with a book giveaway to encourage participants to improve their balance by making conscious choices-like cleaning out technical clutter and using positive affirmations. 


"Even a respected senior executive who is known for her commitment to balance said she learned some new strategies that she'll apply right away."
Tiffany Jenkins, Director of Audit Services
