About this title


Drawing upon classic wisdom and new research in the psychology of well-being, FINDING HAPPINESS shows how to build friendships, overcome barriers to closeness, make a difference in people's lives, and face the future without anxiety.

Relationship building is revealed by Dr. Paul Swets as a matter of making slight adjustments in the way you speak and how you listen. He defines what those changes are and how to implement them to experience greater happiness. He illustrates how you can:

  • achieve closeness with those you care about
  • make others glad to be with you
  • enjoy more of your life
  • FINDING HAPPINESS enables you to experience and share the gift of happiness more often with the people you meet.


    Who wouldn't like to be happy and the best person you could possibly be? Every one of us has this deep-seated desire for happiness and fulfillment. Finding Happiness is fantastic! It should be another winner. Paul has a unique insight of how we can experience joy and purpose. And like a good head coach, he gives us the tools to accomplish this. Read Finding Happiness. It's transformational!"---C. Kemmons Wilson, Jr., Founding Family of Holiday InnsA refreshing read. Finding Happiness is so well written-clear, articulate, engaging. It is packed full of wisdom about how to live this life well. It is a right-on gift of a book."---Mark Hiskes, Teacher"Finding Happiness offers a powerfully written set of tools that sparks action. It encourages, challenges, and ultimately inspires us to make the necessary changes in our lives to allow true happiness to endure. Paul Swets teaches us that life is worth celebrating! So why not start today by connecting, relating, mentoring, and choosing to persevere with Hope. I know Finding Happiness will impact the lives of many!"--Jenna Grasmeyer, 2014 NCAA Division III Volleyball Championship's Most Outstanding Player"Finding Happiness is a gold-mine of coaching strategies for enjoying an abundant life. As a recent college graduate, I find the principles spot on and immediately accessible by my generation. This book fills the gap in our culture by showing the way to enduring happiness."--Sa'eed Hussaini, Research Intern at the Center for Strategic and International Studies' (CSIS) Africa"I think this book is exceptional! Finding Happiness has a lot to offer everyone in terms of acquiring the skills for successful communication and conflict resolution. These skills are so necessary to be effective in life. People of all ages will benefit from them."--Harrison C. Visscher, M.D."Finding Happiness offers helpful insight for living a happy life. With a clear intelligence and gentle tone, Paul Swets mentors us about how to connect with those around us, how to develop a life of depth and purpose, and how to live today without fear of tomorrow. His skill and compassion shine through every page of this profound little book."--Alex Mouw, Lilly Graduate Fellow"As an artist I spend a lot of alone time, stuck in my head. When I venture out from my studio I crave conversation and interaction that matters. As Paul Swets thoroughly lays out in Finding Happiness, it really comes down to relationships that matter. If you're willing to truly engage with this book, I think you'll find reason to venture out from whatever your personal "studio" may be because a fuller life is waiting for you."--Joel Schoon-Tanis, Artist"Finding Happiness brings together not only the necessary practices to initiate and develop lasting friendship, but a reason to even develop these friendships in the first place. The effort laid out here for friendship and happiness is beautiful."--Jeff Miller, Engineer"I believe Finding Happiness will be a practical resource for family and marriage counselors, and for people who want to improve their interpersonal relationships. This is a self-help book that is easy to read, practical in its application, sound in its principles, and appropriate for all ages."--Harold Gazan, MSW, former consultant to Child Welfare and Juvenile Justice Agencies"Finding Happiness is filled with wisdom, wit and great take-away ideas to strengthen each of our relationships. Both my wife and I kept saying, 'This is a great book!'"--Jim Carlson, author of Choosing to be Fully Alive"Paul Swets' book shows how to experience happiness. Finding Happiness is a practical guide for anyone who wants to improve their listening and relationship building skills. It will produce good fruit."--Kelvin Kronemeyer, Pastor"Motivating! I like this fresh approach for opening ways to get through to people and create a happy experience."--Courtney Dykema, College Graduate"Drawing upon his doctoral research in interpersonal communication in his newest book, Dr. Paul Swets helps you maximize you communication skills and build satisfying relationships."--Bobb Biehl, Executive Mentor"Readers of Finding Happiness will be better equipped to improve their relationships with others whether at home, school or in the work place. It is an excellent handbook for the young and the old alike."Dr. Thomas P. Mathew, Former Probation Manager, Cleveland, Ohio"In a series of simple, easy to understand chapters filled with practical exercises and engaging examples, Paul Swets can help you develop your capacity for happiness by focusing on its true secret--healthy relationships."--Dr. David M. Bast, Radio Preacher on Words of Hope International Broadcast"A brilliantly sequenced menu of solutions for every person's core need to be happy now, and joyous forever! Paul clearly identifies the inherent resources every person already has to love, to submit to God, and to celebrate life as it is meant to be! Destined to be a classic--thanks Paul. "--Kyle Rote, Jr., inducted into the National Soccer Hall of Fame"It doesn't matter how we define happiness, we all seek it. This book assists us in our quest. The author clarifies understanding of happiness, but more important, he gives us practical guidance for our quest. This is not a superficial "be happy" admonition; it is a genuine offer that is rooted in experience and the Christian faith and way. Paul Swets deals with those critical areas of relationship where, if happiness does not prevail, life is miserable. I can't think of a person that doesn't need this guidance, and I commend it heartily."--Dr. Maxie Dunnam, President Emeritus of Asbury Theological Seminary"It's not just on MSNBC and Fox News that people don't listen anymore and can't get along. It's in families and churches and businesses. It's seemingly everywhere. We need help. My friend, Dr. Paul Swets, gives it. In Finding Happiness, Paul systematically takes us down the path of healthy and happy relationships based on a healthy and happy you. We'll all be healthier and happier if we read and apply his solid advice."--Rev. Sanders Willson, Senior Pastor of Second Presbyterian Church"C.S. Lewis says, "Joy is the serious business of heaven." It is refreshing to read Paul Swets addressing the serious business of joy and happiness. The appeal to our innate desire "to be happy" is so well done by Paul Swets that the magnetic appeal of the joy Jesus promised will captivate the reading audience."--Dr. John Guest, author of Beating Mediocrity"Combining wisdom from St. Paul with principles of interpersonal communication, this work by Dr. Swets embraces core beliefs and practical disciplines that enable a person to be content--even happy--through whatever circumstances are encountered in life. Finding Happiness promotes a source of joy that can be magnetic."--Bob Reid, Musician
