An Intern’s Introduction to Positive Psychology
So, you’ve successfully seized your first internship and all the jitters currently subsided. Before you know it, day one has arrived and the nervousness takes the reins. What do I wear? Am I educated enough? Little did you know how insignificant what you wear becomes when battling Mother Nature. Now let me tell you how I impressed my boss by making the history books for one-of-the-most-hilariously unfortunate-circumstances-to-happen-on-your-first-day. In addition, how my unlucky situation became an insightful discovery that changed my perspective.
How the Not-So-Good became the Good After All
Well, everyone knows the familiar adage, it could be worse, or how bad could it get? It is a general rule of thumb to never actually recite that line because the universe is anxious to prove you wrong! Yet we are all inbred with the invincibility mindset; the notion that nothing bad could happen to me. I mean, after all, what could possibly go wrong? To my amazement, many, many things could have possibly went wrong.
It is now day one and off I go with my boss’ corporate credit card on a mission to obtain an important piece of technology. After running into a complication with the store manager, I decided I should go to my car and inform my boss of the current situation. Suddenly it hit me. My keys were hanging from my car’s ignition behind locked doors! The keys were so peacefully dangling there, as if they were silently mocking me. At this point, the oh-crap feeling was quite overwhelming. With a defected hanger, two gracious police officers assisted me in what appeared to a third party observer as B&E.
Utilizing Positive Psychology in the Workplace
While most people would be frantic and worrying about losing their position (on their first day might I add), instead, I felt reassured. The CEO of cityHUNT found my situation humorous, which alleviated my worries. At that moment, I learned about the great foundation cityHUNT upholds while enhancing Positive Psychology.
Team building through Happiness at work and Positive Psychology are the platforms cityHUNT operates on. Positive communication manifests into a positive work environment. As a result, this atmosphere fosters productive and awe-inspiring services. Through my unfortunate encounter, I was exposed to the Positive Psychology and compassion of cityHUNT’s operating team.
