Over the last 20 years positive psychology and positive thinkers have suggested that by simply following a number of steps ‘Happiness’ is in our grasp. Who would not like the idea? But wait a minute …. if there were only 3, 5, or 7 steps to Happiness, would people not have achieved it by now? People are not stupid – at least not the majority. So what is wrong with the picture?
Happiness is not a commodity, a trade-able good that can be acquired by following a prescribed formula – like how to start your car’s engine.
Happiness is a mind-set, a way of understanding how we create our experience of life, a way of viewing the world, a way of taking responsibility for our feelings, a way of taking charge of our life. Acquiring that mind-set is the one and only step to Happiness, the only one I know of, the one that very wise people throughout history have pointed out over and over again.
In my upcoming seminar “THE 3 PRINCIPLES: THE POWER OF HAPPINESS” I will share how to acquire the mindset necessary for Happiness, Contentment, and Peace of Mind. I will point out the missing link that puts things into perspective and you will understand that you find the answer within you and nowhere else.
