    Sharing Nine Secrets to Ensuring a Happy Life

    HOW WE CHOOSE TO BE HAPPY dispels the myth that we have emotional set points and are stuck with whatever level of satisfaction we normally feel, in lives primarily influenced by luck of the draw. Authors Foster and Hicks traveled the world to interview the happiest people referred to them in each town they visited, discovering that the happiest people in the world have made nine life choices in common. Significantly, it became clear that when these nine principles are adopted, they radically improve peoples' happiness in life regardless of what is going on around them. The realizations in HOW WE CHOOSE TO BE HAPPY are so clearly stated with abundant examples of people who are merely cheerful, or in denial, rather than genuninely happy that their nine principles become more clearly outlined. The big idea here is that happiness is a choice, or more precisely a series of choices, and when we choose to move our lives toward happiness by making changes to ourselves from the inside out, we can experience tremendous improvements in feelings of increased inner joy, peace and health. Our health and wellbeing lies in our happiness... and when we realize that our happiness is a new way of life, this book becomes a much-needed guide to finding out just how good life can be. I give this book my highest recommendation.

    Amazing!!!

    I am so into this book! I want to give it to everyone that I know. It makes so much sense and has really moved me in a new direction. I already had a basic understanding of some of the concepts that they discuss and reading this book has just intensified my understanding and apprciation for life.

    Choosing to be happy

    Though this book is not a psychology book, the Nine Step Model is firmly founded in Human Potential psychology. Everyone wants to be in control of their life. When people aren't in control they often feel powerless, victimized and possibly alienated. When they are in control, they feel powerful, actualized and usually happy. This book helps people recognize a path toward greater personal control and the rewards that result.
