All of us go through a time in our lives when being happy just doesn't seem realistic. When I was going through my divorce, I wasn't even able to remember what that five letter word meant. I wish that I would have had a copy of this book back then.
Ian breaks the emotions down for you in an easy to understand manner that has such a positive feel to it that you can't help but feel better. Here is what you will learn from reading this book:
--How to be optimistic
--Why optimism and realism are not opposites
--How to get outside yourself
--The importance of family and community
--Why involvement leads to contentment
--Shedding the treadmill mentality of getting and spending
--Tapping the power of simple pleasures
--Mastering modern life to live in the moment
--What we can learn from the Danish people
--How to be, not just to do
Ian is a natural writer who motivates and reassures readers that they are capable of happiness by setting their mentality and not giving up. This book would make a great graduation gift. I really enjoyed this book and all the lessons it taught me.
