What Happy People Know by Dr. Dan Baker
Dr. Dan Baker, director of the Life Enhancement Program at Canyon Ranch, has devoted his life to teaching people how to be happy. And apparently, most of us could use a little tutoring.
I personally had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Dan Baker at a Leadership Conference in Kansas City. His research and personal experiences he shares are wonderful in both What Happy People Know and What Happy Women Know.
Dr. Baker uses evidence from the new science of happiness to show us how we can overcome this genetic predisposition toward negative reactions and lead a truly rich, happy, and healthy life.
Maybe you’re wishing for more–more money, more friends, more status–thinking that “more” itself will insulate you from fear, making you feel safer and therefore happier. But Dr. Baker’s clinics have been filled with VIPs who are just as unhappy as the next guy–some even more so.
In What Happy People Know, Dr. Baker shares the program that has revolutionized the lives of countless unhappy people, VIPs and regular Joes and Janes alike. First, you’ll learn the only two issues that ever cause unhappiness and devise your plan to overcome both of them. Then, Dr. Baker teaches you how to spot the happiness traps, the five doomed ways we try to make ourselves happy, only to dig ourselves further into misery. Finally, he shares his happiness tools, the six simple skills that, when practiced consistently, will inevitably lead to greater optimism, courage, good humor, and fulfillment–in short, to happiness.
