Share this post:  
Setting up new goals and resolutions have become a common thing with the start of each new year. However, working towards the achievements of these goals can sometimes turn into a  frustrating endeavour especially when the goals are not realistic enough. For a successful accomplishment of ones goals, behavioural psychology has the answer: form better and lasting habits. Habits have the power to direct our actions and create neurological pathways that make it easy for our brains to easily transmit, receive and process information.  To help you learn more about the strength of habits in helping you develop a growth mind-set and subsequently live a healthier and happier life, we are sharing with you this collection of some wonderful books and TED Talks. We invite you to check them out and share with your colleagues. Enjoy
