In today's episode I interview #1 New York Times best-selling author, Richard Eyre about his new book The Happiness Paradox.

Richard's experience is that there are three main obstacles to happiness and joy:

  • Control
  • Ownership
  • Independence

When we are obsessed with seeking after these alone, it will be a never ending cycle of ultimate dissatisfaction. However there is a way to sustainable happiness according to Richard. To replace these three with three others:

  • Serendipity
  • Stewardship
  • Synergicity (synergy and synchronicity)

We go into more detail about how you can move from control to serendipity, from ownership to stewardship, and from independence to synergicity. It's a beautiful conversation that really helps tap into some core issues we face when we want a more happy life.

In addition, Richard made some special offers to all of the More Happy Life listeners!
