+ Will you be happy in the future?

[ Posted on 03.17.2014 ]

In this week’s podcast of Unlock Your Happiness with Wendy Dolber, I’m going to talk about an amazing quality we all possess – imagining our own happiness. I like to start with a question. What do you have to have in order to be happy?  Imagine what that thing is right now.  Be really specific.  $1,000,000?  A great relationship?  Your dream job?  Now imagine that you had that thing next year?  How do you feel now? Aren’t you happy already just imagining it? How can that be?

What appears to be irrational is woven into the fabric of our world.  There is order where disorder seems to reign. Can we use this knowledge to be…

+ No Way Out: Are You Stuck in Unhappiness?

[ Posted on 02.26.2014 ]

Psst.  Today I want to tell you about a secret about unhappiness. Something that you can use to free yourself. Think about those times when you’ve been caught up in feeling sad, depressed, angry, miserable, frustrated – you name it – and you just can’t imagine being happy again. Perhaps you can’t even remember the last time you were happy. Perhaps it seems as if you are in a deep, dark tunnel that has no light at the end of it. Or lost in a maze with no apparent exit. You might even be asking yourself – how will I ever stop this? – when will I be happy again? – how do I break out of this cycle of misery? Here’s a secret that may help you. It’s the nature of unhappiness to believe that there is no way out. I’ll say it again. It is the nature of…

Unhappiness is the belief that you’re not free.
