Which class is the most popular at Harvard University? It is an elective course: “Happiness Class”. The number of attendees surpassed the ace class “Introduction to Economics”, which was taught by an unknown young lecturer named Tal Bin-Shahar, PhD in philosophy and psychology. The “Organizational Psychology” and “Leadership Psychology” courses he opened at Harvard were ranked first and third in the “Most Popular Courses” respectively. The number of electives per semester is as high as 1,400, exceeding 20% ​​of the total number of students. . Many students reported to the school that these two courses “changed their lives.”
   Tal Bin-Chahar, who claims to be shy and introverted.
  ”At Harvard, when I taught positive psychology for the first time, only 8 students signed up and 2 people dropped out. The second time, I had nearly 400 students. The third time, when the number of students reached When I entered 850, I felt more nervous and uneasy, especially when the parents, grandparents, and friends from the media began to appear in my class.”
   Gradually, he no longer Fear, but happiness. When a group of people who pursue happiness are together, happiness is cross-infected.
  We came to this world, what is the most important thing to pursue? Success? Is fame and fortune?
  Tal Bin-Shahar firmly believes that “happiness” is the only criterion for measuring life. It is the ultimate goal of all goals. We follow our feelings, happiness is a feeling. If you don’t feel happiness, just like you don’t feel a beauty, then the beauty has nothing to do with you, let alone yours.
  ” When people measure business success, the standard is money. Money is used to evaluate assets and debts, profits and losses. Everything that has nothing to do with money will not be taken into account. Money is the highest wealth. I think life is related to Like business, there are profits and losses.”
   “Specifically, when looking at your own life, you can treat negative emotions as expenses and positive emotions as income. When positive emotions outnumber negative emotions, we are happy. Profits are made on the’supreme wealth’.”
   Tal Bin-Shahar hopes his students will learn to accept themselves and not ignore their uniqueness; to get rid of “perfectionism” as if he accepts himself Because of his shy personality, he also accepts freedom, just as he accepts the imperfection of his personality, the world is therefore perfect.
