The startling practicality of happiness

Manage for happinessWoohoo! The first in a series of free Happiness Hangouts happens this Friday, August 8, at 9:00am Pacific Daylight Time and YOU are invited.

Why? Because it happens that happiness doesn’t just feel good; it’s startlingly practical.

As the name suggests, Happiness Hangouts are all about happiness and its startling bearing on life and biz. We’ll look at:

  • Why happiness is a default, not a destination.
  • The relationship between happiness and wisdom.
  • How to use happiness as a navigational aid in life and business.

There will be some teaching and some coaching and some who-knows-what-else. Think insight meets pragmatism meets sassiness. (Hmmm. The term “wise sass” just occurred to me. I like that!)

How It Works

Happiness Hangouts will use Google’s Hangouts on Air technology to broadcast a live video feed of yours truly. You can watch the live feed on a page at my Web site or via Google+. If you have a Gmail account, I recommend the Google+ option, because you’ll be able to see and participate in the live chat.

In addition to watching, you can participate in the Hangout by teleconference. You’ll receive all the info about how to watch and/or call in when you sign up. You’ll get replay info as well.

Are you in?

Inner Guidance Is Common Sense

Sometimes the hard part of discerning inner guidance is thinking it’s going to be dramatic or big. In fact, common sense is wisdom perfectly calibrated to a specific moment in time. Don’t confuse this inner guidance in the moment with generic common sense.

How to Deal with Resistance–Set It Aside

How do you deal with resistance? You could analyze it, process it, search for the meaning behind it–or you could simply set it aside. Resistance takes care of itself when we shift our attention away from it. The key? Shift your attention away from resistance by engaging with life, not by escaping or numbing out. Engagement will always dissolve resistance.

How to Stop Negative Thinking

What if the secret to controlling or stopping negative thinking is as simple as stopping? We don’t get to choose which thoughts come across our mental landscape, but we absolutely get to decide how much significance to accord them. When we analyze, excavate, or deconstruct negative thinking, we innocently feed it. When we withdraw attention and significance from it, it changes.
