Publisher's Summary

Most of us believe that our happiness depends on the outside world - and that by solving our problems, improving our relationships, or achieving success, we will find contentment. In You Can Be Happy No Matter What, Dr. Richard Carlson shows that happiness has nothing to do with forces beyond our control. His simple and practical guide teaches 5 principles - Thought, Moods, Separate Realities, Feelings, and the Present Moment - for discovering a new mode of living that doesn't repress natural emotions, yet where feelings and thoughts don't overwhelm us.
Dr. Carlson is the best-selling author of Don't Sweat the Small Stuff.

Brilliant and Life Changing Three Principals Book

A great introduction to Syd Bank's Three Principles. If you have listened or read Elsie Spittle, Michael Neill or Damian Mark Smyth's " Do Nothing" then you will love this book. It takes the Three Principles ideas of Mind, Consciousness and Thought and turns them into a primer for living our every day lives with happiness, joy and contentment. One of the best books ever on the Three Principles and a real life changer if you follow with action in your life. I can't imagine how wonderful the world would be if everyone in the world read and followed the practical ideas in their everyday lives.

Important information with

Well, this title is not as brilliant and vibrant as "Don't Sweat the Small Stuff!. It's rather like a textbook on a good topic. But if you give it a fair chance, you'll get as much stuff as Richard Carlson's masterpiece works. His approach for "handling stress" in later chapters is quite original. I simply loved it.

It changed me completely

I love this book and have listened to it so many times on repeat. There are a number of advices which I adhere to on a daily basis. For example I am more aware of my thoughts playing with my mind. I am less worried and see my life and others in a different light. I know that the author sadly died and it kind of feels that he is speaking from another world. This is an useful and straight talking audio book. I would definitely recommend this.

one of the best books

If you can implement what this book is teaching it will change your experience of life.
It gets you to look at your relationship of what you think and how you interperate those thoughts,it is suprising how much misery we bring on ourselves with our own thoughts,this book will show you how to understand your thoughts to gain a more realistic interpretation.
