Life in Action: The 12 VOY Principles of True Happiness and Success

Overview

Money cannot buy happiness, says Fernando Espuelas. Success cannot be measured in wealth, power, or fame.

Overview

Money cannot buy happiness, says Fernando Espuelas. Success cannot be measured in wealth, power, or fame. Success and happiness come from looking inside ourselves to discover who we genuinely are and what we truly need to find happiness. And then striving to live the best life we can: for our loved ones, our community, and ourselves.

Espuelas describes this philosophy-of introspection as the catalyst for action- with the Spanish word voy: "I go." He shows how to visualize success and then to create a plan to work toward it every day. Espuelas's twelve principles and their accompanying exercises are developed from his own life and the lives of people who have used the powers of optimism, persistence, honesty, and courage to overcome obstacles like fear, doubt, and prejudice.
