Dr. Seligman, the founder of Positive Psychology, began his research because he wanted to look beyond the treatment of illness in order to discover how to use psychology to live well.

His findings demonstrate the importance of optimism, but also that optimism can be learned. It’s not just something that some of us are born with!

One of his early books is Learned Optimism, and it’s today’s OKPTA Cultivate recommendation. Available for under $10 on Amazon.
