Happiness Leads to Success of a student


Happy student of SEVAI School

“Happiness Leads to Success of a student” said by Chitra Balasubramanian, the Principal of SEVAI Shanthi Matriculation Higher School, Petttavaithalai while addressing the teachers of the school recently. The principal further said, “Happiness among students and teachers cause success. Confidence, optimism, and self-efficacy fuel not only the underlying behaviors needed for individual success, including effective coping with challenge and stress, as well as originality and flexibility, they also yield both likability by others, positive views of others, sociability, activity, energy, and psychosocial behavior. Happiness leads to success because of the factors such as happy people have built up emotional resources over time during previous pleasant moods and People with frequent positive moods have a greater likelihood of working actively toward new goals while experiencing those moods. So happy students are more successful in general, and their success is in large part a consequence of their both their chronic happiness and their frequent experience of positive emotions. The Benefits of positive emotions are Broadening thinking as essential for effective problem solving, mindful critical thinking, Expanding interpersonal trust as Key for building the relationships and teams that support learning, Increasing positive coping approaches as Important for dealing with the day-to-day ups and downs we all face, Expanding mindsets  and Developing resilience as substantive for preventing depression and moving forward through challenges, that more resilient students are higher achievers as well. in the world of education, most people are unaware that well-being fuels the thinking and interpersonal trust that lead to student achievement, that gold-standard result of educational pursuits. The students can become more engaged throughout the school day without giving up accountability goals, defining strengths, building resilience, and building relationships. It costs little for students to use their inherent strengths, build resilience in embracing those strengths, and recognize and respond to their students’ strengths and abilities rather than to their deficiencies. The teacher as a person is more important than the teacher as a technician. Teachers have a powerful impact on the students that they interact with on a daily basis to develop lifelong skills that will help them be healthy, use their remarkable brains to interact positively and to develop a variety of thinking skills that will help them be successful in the world they are growing up in and to help their students be happy while learning to use their brains and develop their creativity”.-Govin
