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. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

    " This book is wonderful to reinforce that ups and downs are a normal part of life, but they don't have to determine how happy your life is. I highly recommend this book for anyone who's interested in learning how to feel at peace and joyful during both life's good times and difficult times. "

    " This was a pretty good book by the author of "Don't Sweat the Small Stuff -- and it's all small stuff" that put into words common sense advice that really does work. Basically the premise is, if something makes you sad, or mad, or depressed, don't think about it. Replace negative thoughts with positive ones. To have a happy marriage, don't think about all the ways your spouse falls short all day. Think about all the good he/she does and how much you love him/her. This book offers amazingly simple wisdom that really can make most of us happier and improve our relationships. I say "most" because there are some problems, I believe, that need to be worked through with the help of mental health professionals. However, for most of us, most of the time, we can become happier and more well adjusted by following Carlson's principles for happiness. (I am trying to put this practice in my own life and it really has worked for me!) "
