It’s an odd concept. Let’s face it, it’s an unspoken rule in society that if we want to “succeed” in life, we need to work as hard as we can and do whatever it takes- and, hopefully, happiness will come afterward.
But that’s not exactly true. Author Ray White explains that happiness is not a destination, it’s a way of living. It’s also a choice; one that, when implemented, can help to catapult us into success with our business, our family, and our relationships.
In Connecting Happiness and Success, you will learn proven habits and techniques that will teach you how to be happy first, and then use that happiness to achieve even greater success down the road.
The book is divided into seven sections, with the first four explaining how you can be happier, and the final three teaching you how to become more successful. It covers topics such as learning the difference between happiness and pleasure, tips for taking control of your life, the power of gratitude, and how to be more mindful in our actions. You will also learn how happiness (and stress) impact your health, as well as those around you.
Packed full of exercises, charts, and tables, this book is an interactive guide that is both easy to follow, and simple to implement. I loved how the methods are customizable to suit your individual desires and goals, and found a lot of the concepts to be utterly fascinating. Connecting Happiness and Success is a great resource for anyone who is looking to improve an aspect of their lives, whether work, family, relationships, or simply to get more enjoyment out of life. Great for established or aspiring business owners, this book will help you put together a plan for success through happiness, instead of putting your happiness on the back burner. Highly recommended!
