What does it mean to be truly happy? Is there a secret to happiness?To most people it is self-evident--the secret to true happiness is not found in riches, things, or events. The source of happiness, as revealed in this insightful, inspiring, and infinitely practical book, is to be found in the way we choose to live our lives.Truly happy people make conscious decisions about how they will confront all of life's challenges. In the face of sometimes overwhelming circumstances, they create happiness by making the same nine internal, principle-centered choices.The people whose stories illuminate this book, representing a wide range of ages, and economic, social, political, and religious backgrounds, all make an active commitment to be happy. They are accountable for their own actions, thoughts, and feelings. They identify what makes them happy and make it central to their lives. Happy people find meaning and emotional energy in every event. They are flexible and open to life's many options. They appreciate what they have, and give unceasingly with no expectation of a "return." Happy people are truthful with themselves and others.How We Choose to Be Happy explores the nine choices that extremely happy people make, and shows how anyone can follow these tenets to create a unique personal experience.
