The Free Course
It is well documented that money cannot buy you love, or happiness.
Why is it so many people are comfortable, even rich and successful, but many are not happy.
In this short course we will be working to help you bring more joy and happiness in to your life.
This session includes activities to identify your happiness baseline, reveals a formula for understanding happiness and offers some activities to help you move your baseline in the right direction.
Just as you can change your habits, you can change your thinking. Changing your thinking will change your behaviour. You will make better choices. This session covers how we can create our own beneficial mental images of scenarios and how our perspective colours our world and the choices we make.

Cy Young and Nolan Ryan played a lot of baseball. They didn’t allow their failures and losses to stop them in their tracks. They pushed through. They practiced more and played more. They got back up again and did what they knew best – it’s a numbers game. The more you play, the more the numbers work in your favour.
As we move to the final lesson, I hope that on this journey there has been a rise in your happiness baseline, not that you have to be ecstatically happy all day every day, but just that you have an overall raised baseline from which the events of each day have a reduced affect your equilibrium.
Everything comes in 3’s; the power of three.

- A strong desire to be happy
- An attitude and commitment to change
Each lesson will contain 3 things:
- Some dates, research, facts and statistics

And the 3rd three, is a 3-week cycle (21 days) to create a habit.
