A lot of people have vested interests in changing our perception of this reality.
‘How to be happy’ generates 1, 850, 000,000 results on Google in 0.05 seconds.
Gurus scream from their book covers that they can make you happy. Most of it is utter nonsense, of course. Am I the only person who finds this offensive? You already know that the only person who can make you happy is you. The question therefore is:
‘How can I make myself happy?’
That question implies personal power, personal choice and personal responsibility. It goes to the root of the reality that the only thing we can truly manage is where we choose to put our focus and our energy moment to moment.
I’m just annoyed, having seen yet another ‘I can make you stop smoking’ book on a client’s desk. Rant over.
