How Happiness Happens: Finding Lasting Joy in a World of Comparison, Disappointment, and Unmet Expectations
Do you feel happy?
How long has it been since you felt a level of contagious, infectious, unflappable, unstoppable happiness? Maybe your answer is, "All the time." If so, God bless you! (And consider suggesting this book to someone who needs it.) For many of us the answer is, "Well, it's been a while. I used to be happy, but then life took its toll."
Only one-third of Americans surveyed said they were happy. How can this be? Education is accessible to most. We've made advancements in everything from medicine to technology, yet 66 percent of us can't find an adequate reason to check the "yes" box on the happiness questionnaire.
Worldwide, people profess that happiness is their most cherished goal. Marketers get this. "Want to be happy?" they ask. Eat at this restaurant, drive this car, wear this dress. Happiness happens when you lose the weight, get the date, find the mate, or discover your fate. It's wide, this way to happiness. Yet, for all its promise, it delivers a fragile joy; here one day, tomorrow scattered by the winds of comparison, disappointment, or unmet expectations.
Max writes, "There is another option. It requires no credit card, monthly mortgage, or stroke of fortune. Age and ethnicity aren't factors...an unexpected door to joy."
In this book Max shares the unexpected path to a lasting happiness, one that produces reliable joy in any season of life. Based on the teachings of Jesus and backed by modern research, How Happiness Happens presents a surprising but practical way of living that will change you from the inside out.
