From the Back Cover:
What Would Make You Happier?
Think of the things that make you happiest: The things that really matter...the things that really last. Can you imagine having more of them in your life? Thought so…
The pursuit of happiness is the biggest goal of all, but finding happiness isn’t easy, especially in times like these. Happiness doesn’t just happen: People need a clearer vision of attainable happiness, defined in simple terms--people need a plan.
The Happiness Plan will help you build that plan. It presents an accessible set of simple observations about how you can be happier, here and now, without quitting your job, moving your family, or making great sacrifices.
The Happiness Plan is written for hard-working people, helping them to make some real changes with the right ideas.
With Carmel McConnell’s “ABC” of a happier life, you can learn how to
• Understand what can really make us happy (and it might not be
what you think)
• Recognize the big sources of happiness in your life (and make
more room for them)
• Overcome obstacles to happiness (Have you chosen a stress-based approach to life?)
• Use some simple, powerful techniques to achieve some lasting
changes to your life
Do these things and happiness will happen: authentic, lasting, real. It’s about taking gentle, small steps, and it’s easier than you ever imagined. The Happiness Plan is based on the latest breakthrough research about happiness. It works. Try it. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain.
