Are you happy?
No, seriously, are you happy? When that alarm clock rings in the morning, do you dread starting your day, or are you excited to see what today brings? You see, the difference between those who are happy, and those who are not, comes down to one simple thing. Yourself.
As cliché as it may be, and as many time as it may have been said, the truth remains, people who are happier with themselves are happier in life. I would like you to think about the happiest person you know. Now, I would like you to ask yourself, why is that person so happy? Are they in love? Are they wealthy? Are they content, or do they strive for more?
Happiness comes from many, many, different places. Happiness is also different for each and every one of us. What makes one person happy may or may not make another person happy, and do you know what? That's okay. That is important to remember as you listen. Finding your inner Zen is all about finding your own happiness, and not worrying so much about trying to make everyone else happy. After all, you can't make others happy until you are happy with yourself. If you would like to wake up happy every morning, and learn how you can channel your own inner zen, especially in today's society, please listen on.

"Required reading for a fulfilling life! Concise, wise, practical..."
I am 53 years old, was raised as a Christian and am a Christian who tries to live with Jesus for a model. For me it it simple...love your neighbor as yourself...and we are all neighbors regardless of our skin color, etc.
I used to think Zen conflicted with my Christian belief system but have been so happy to find that Zen and Christianity can coexist. Zen practice makes me a better Christian. Zen is about living in the moment fully and developing compassion for yourself and others.
This book is so simple and so profound...I am telling everyone I know about it...I've read probably hundreds of books, and this is probably the only one I really needed. Wish I had found it when I was younger, but I love sharing it with my teenage daughter and her friends as well as anyone looking to have a happier and more fulfilling life. Thank you!
"Very inspiring! I highly recommend!"
Yes, I highly recommend listening to the audio version of this book. The author explained zen living in a way that was both easy to understand and inspiring.
I like that the author gives easy to follow steps with real life examples that I could really relate to.
Listening to the narrator read the story really made me better able to visualize what he was talking about. I found it easier to really immerse myself into the ideas he was explaining.
I learned that I'm sabotaging my own happiness by comparing myself to others and by multitasking.
