I was a motivational speaker for a group of school administrators where the other guest speaker quoted the book, Happy at Last by Dr Richard O'Connor.
I was a motivational speaker for a healthcare conference where the other guest speaker suggested the audience ponder the question, what kind of world would this be if everyone in it were just like me?
Apparently human happiness has hit a road block. For years it was believed that increasing prosperity would lead to happiness. Now people know this is not true. Every year people report to be less and less happy and yet we are more affluent and prosperous than ever.
