THE POSITIVE JOURNAL
by Nancy Clark
Nancy Clark is the Director of
, CEO of
and author of
The Positive Journal.
After studying physics at Berkeley, she started out in rocket science with NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory and then computer technology for the University of California.
For the last 18 years she’s been providing the latest information, backed by research, to help working women succeed in business.
When the field of positive psychology started in 1998, she realized there was scientific proof that the brain can be changed and that happiness and fulfillment can be increased. She began presenting this information to her audience on the internet. Forbes recognized her contribution and she was honored to be named Director of ForbesWomensMedia, the first channel of Women At Forbes.
She enjoys teaching people how they can quickly become happier, especially using those counter intuitive tricks that recent research has proven really work. Her book and ideas are for everyone - not just women. She says,
"About 60 percent of our attitude is dictated by life situations, childhood, genetics. But you can improve your happiness level 40 percent, It's scientifically possible to rewire your brain."
Nancy moved to Grants Pass two years ago with her husband of 47 years, and says the book is just a tool to help people develop habits for moving in a positive direction. But it's not essential to long-term happiness.
