On 1st December I made a bold promise: to let you in on an answer to the question that has preoccupied us for as long as we have been able to think.

Because I know that, like me, you are eager to enjoy the rewards of  true happiness, I won’t beat about the bush with long, drawn out explanations or justifications, I’ll just come to the point. In a moment or two.

Thirty years of study, pondering, trial and error and, above all,  conversations with thousands of people at conferences, training events and lectures resulted one day in a moment’s insight. Like any important question, the answer, if there is one, is not quite as simple as a set of instructions or a recipe, it tends to provoke more questions.

Are you sitting comfortably?

So here it is. If you want to be happy:

First, find out what’s bugging you

Second, do something about it.

What do you think? Share your thoughts...
