Happiness Starts with a Decision

This may sound overly simplistic, but it’s not. Rod Martin gives his own real-life experience in discovering what it takes to go from severe depression to lighthearted bliss in an instant. All it took was deciding to be happy and then acting on it.

But we humans come with a bag full of barriers. We can find all manner of reasons not to decide to be happy. A large part of this book explores the nature of those barriers, how to recognize them and how to overcome them.

Practice Makes Perfect

No self-help or how-to book would ever work without at least a few exercises. This book has nearly two dozen step-by-step exercises that help you strengthen your awareness of barriers and your ability to blow right through them.

Understanding is the Foundation to Correct Action

If you have a destination—a goal—you have a much better chance of getting there. Setting out without a goal is understandably haphazard. But imagine having a goal, but not understanding anything about your barriers or your abilities and resources. Instant Happiness helps you understand not only the barriers in your way, but also the tools you have at your disposal—things like awareness, responsibility, love, humility, compassion and the ability to turn your attention outward, rather than inward. These empower you to conquer all barriers to your own instant happiness.

Once you’re done with this book, the many steps you’ve taken will give you the strength to turn on happiness in an instant, on demand.
