Richard has been working on this book for three decades, and it is finally being released on New Year’s day. It is a book with two front covers. The Happiness Paradox explores the problem that is created when we look for happiness in the wrong places and with the wrong attitudes. The paradox is that most of us pursue Control, Ownership, and Independence in the belief that the more of them we have, the happier we will be. But in fact, these are the three things that pull us away from true happiness. The first “side” of the book presents the problem, and when the book is flipped over to The Happiness Paradigm, the alternative attitudes of Serendipity, Stewardship, and Synergicity are suggested as the opposite approaches that can “turn our lives right-side up.”
Richard’s research for this book took he and Linda to the ancient manuscripts in the British Museum and the emerald jungles of Sri Lanka and changed the way they live their life and the way they raised their family. “Essentially,” Richard says, “This book chronicles my 30-year search for the true antecedents of lasting happiness, and what I found is that we have to get rid of the attitudes that bring unhappiness before we can discover the true paths to real joy.”
The book is released on New Year’s day because it forms the basic framework for what could be the most thorough and life-changing New Year’s resolution that you will ever make. For a limited time, you can buy the book for 30% off.
