011: Dr. Lynn Johnson on How Positive Psychology Transformed His Life and Career

Dr. Lynn Johnson
Dr. Lynn Johnson
Dr. Lynn Johnson, psychotherapist and author of Enjoy Life! Healing with Happiness, shares how picking up a book 23 years ago impacted his life and changed his direction as a veteran psychotherapist. Lynn also shares how cultivating happiness through the Positive Psychology concept of learned optimism is helping his clients in their own healing journeys. Push the play button above to listen to the show or use the links below to listen on iTunes or Stitcher Radio.

Some of my favorite insights from Lynn during the show were:

“Life is painful… suffering is optional.”
“The optimist doesn’t think of the bad events as being horrible, they think of how this will be a challenge to cope with… what can I learn from this? How can I grow from this?”
“Self-efficacy… There’s something about not taking to heart bad events.”
“The Positive Psychologist tends to say: The character flaws just sort of disappear if your focused on happiness. The character flaws you sort of lose interest in them when you’re focused on your happiness.”
“That’s what makes me happy about being a shrink, I’m constantly learning.”
