How happy are you right now?
How happy have you been today?
Psychologists estimate that only 20% of people are happy more than they are sad or angry or unfulfilled or disappointed.
80% don’t seem to achieve enough good experiences to make life significantly delightful.
And a whopping 25% – one quarter of all people – see no reason at all to be happy.
This lack of happiness is a tragedy that leads to ill health, anxiety, stress, pain, disinterest and the creation of a world that‘s full of lack, loss, bad luck and disappointments all round for its creators.
This deeply unhappy world does exist – but it’s not a natural phenomena: it’s a personal universe that’s significantly brought about by our personal (and negative) responses to our experiences, our circumstances and our opportunities.
That said, what can we do about it?
The emphasis here is ‘DO’ about it…….
