Overview

An exciting journey through history, socio-economic discourse, and philosophical discussion. This book will guide you, using a holistic approach to finding true happiness. It has the potential to change lives, not by giving advice as to how you should lead your life but by exposing you to concepts, philosophies and a way of thinking (for yourself) that may not have been so obvious before.

Providing an abundance of stimulation and enlightenment on several key topics, it breaks happiness down into three parts (Money, Love, and Health). The etymology of the word “happiness” means “living well”. What flows from this is that if you “live well” you will find happiness and the reason most people believe they will be happy if they are wealthy, in love and in good health is that those three things i.e. money, love, and health promote well-being. This trifecta has the power to make us happy when things are going smoothly, but also the ability to make us really miserable when they are not. The Quest for Happiness is something that every single one of us aspires to.

Our Quest for happiness begins by following historical and present-day examples of figures of accomplishment, those who have succeeded in their own Quests. The whole idea is to encourage the reader to have the mindset of an explorer; because explorers are a special type of human being. They have physical endurance – they have mental toughness – They have plenty of determination and a deep feeling of purpose and most of all they have faith in their pursuit. The author took this concept of exploration a bit further. Geographical explorations have limits whilst exploration of ourselves as a human being is infinite. The author is inviting her readers to turn inwards; because when you turn inwards this is where you find your own treasure.

The book is shaped like a journey, and the author is taking her readers on an Epic Journey serving as their tour guide. This book will entice, surprise and inspire. The words have depth, the journey is meaningful and the message uplifting and thought-provoking. Are you ready for your Quest?
