This is not just another self-help book. The Art of Joyful Living is a unique manual designed to help you to take charge of your life in order to achieve lasting success and happiness. Basing his work on a groundbreaking definition of what mental health consists of, psychiatrist Dr. Jonathan Rosman demonstrates, by means of simple examples which anyone can relate to, that the key to happiness is to live a life rich in values. To be happy, you need both a purpose and lots of values. The Art of Joyful Living is not just a collection of tips for life. Neither is it a collection of vague themes of desirable conduct. Instead, the book provides you with a clear set of principles that are grounded in the objective requirements of successful living. And, what is more, they are fully integrated and compatible with one another. Dr. Rosman leads you systematically from an explanation of happiness as being what Aristotle described as excellent living, to a detailed discussion of what values are, what their role is in the achievement of happiness, and how to pursue them and nurture them. The chapters on values lead to an analysis of virtues, which are the actions necessary to achieve values. To be more virtuous, Dr. Rosman shows you not only how to motivate yourself to act, but also how to become passionate about your life. He shows you how you can embrace positive changes and actually transform your personality for the better. The Art of Joyful Living is a manual on how to structure and manage your mental processes so as to develop skills and to establish habits that promote a happy life. Making changes in yourself is a process of growth, and Dr. Rosman shows in what way the integration of your mental processes with each other and with all the aspects of your life is the key to achieving full maturity. Growing, to some extent, involves letting go of the past, and Dr. Rosman shows you how to deal with several common fears and low self-esteem. The Art of Joyful Living is filled with colorful examples from real life and is written in simple language. It comes with a summary of the important principles set out in the book. For example, the principle of stagnation refers to the fact that life does not stand still, and thus you should not try to do so. The only alternatives you have are moving forwards, or regressing. There are also sample worksheets so that you can start to apply the happiness principles to your own life even while you are reading the book. The Art of Joyful Living is written for anyone who wants to improve the level of happiness in his or her life. It contains a wealth of information, and many of the truisms it contains will easily resonate with you. This book just helps you to put it all together

Joy is hoped for, wished for, prayed for, sought for, fought for. It is missing, wanted, needed. It is attainable. It is not an elusive dream or a someday. It is a now. Oh Da Joy is a series of short life lessons. Each focuses on a different aspect of living joyfully. Each lesson was learned through an event or events in my life and in the lives of those I know. Some have been lessons of heart-rending loss, while others still bring that laugh out loud even after years. All have brought a way to live a joyful life. The book is presented as a conversation instead of a thesis. This isn't a scholarly book of research, as important as those are. It's a discussion with my readers, not presented with fancy words, but with my heart. For in the end, it is with the reader's heart that they will find the way to live in joy.

There are a wealth of examples to discover for a more wholesome outlook on life, including: • Hiraeth – the word for deep longing for home (Welsh) • Goya – the transportive ability of good storytelling (Urdu) • Yugen – the ability of the natural world to deeply move us (Japanese) • Gigil – the overwhelming urge to cuddle an adorable pet (Philippine Tagalog) Simultaneously all-inclusive and peculiar to place, these words are on the tip of our tongue and yet not in our vocabulary. The Happiness Passport delves into this treasure trove of delights, examining the cultural context of each expression and the lessons that we can apply in our own lives to achieve greater contentment. A must-read for fans of The Serenity Passport, and for all those seeking a more balanced life. This beautiful guide features original illustrations that evoke each elusive expression.

Life is short, and each one of us are here to play it to our best – and win… by winning, I mean not just material success, but much more than that – a meaningful, self-determined and wonderful journey, where every day is an adventure of sorts, and every encounter one small step towards a little more learning and wisdom. What you read in the following pages is an attempt is to give life tips in bite-sized chunks! You may choose to read the book in the order of the pages, or just browse through in any page which interests you. Every topic is a new insight into how Your LIFE journey can be a shade better, by either imbibing that quality – and just in case that is already there in your ‘armor’, just plain reinforcing it – and passing it on to others. Also, to re-iterate, every page or topic touched upon in the pages of this book has the thought or the seed for a thought, which could have a positive impact on YOUR life, irrespective of what stage YOU are in now. Now to what winning means – not the YOU getting a whole lot of fame, power or even loads of money; I mean more than that for YOU. Winning by doing things that you would love to do more, and in the process, be happy, and get to a level to success as defined by you, only by you! Let’s see how most of us would define the term winning or being successful – most of us have somehow come to the conclusion that winning is synonymous with not having any problems or challenges in this wonderful journey called life. The reason why most of us, including me and you want to be rich and famous – while we may not admit that as blatantly – the fact of the matter is that –we have somehow come to believe that being rich and famous is a sure shot to happiness. Nothing can be far from true – the rich and famous do have come to the point where they are, after playing hard in the game of life, until they reached where they are now – as seen and adored by all of us. So, whats the easy recipe to remain optimistic and joyful? Read on.

“Meetings are a waste of time” is a sentiment many of us share, which is tragic because meetings bring us together as human beings. To achieve the kind of meaning or breakthrough results most of us really yearn for when we gather, the key quality needed is authentic engagement: a genuine expression of what is true for us, and an attentive listening to what is true for others. Why it so often eludes us can be a matter of habit, distrust, lack of attention, or fear. As cofounders of Heartland Inc., Craig and Patricia Neal have led over 170 of their acclaimed Thought Leader Gatherings with leaders from over 800 diverse organizations. Their new book shares for the first time the unique and powerful Art of Convening model—developed in these gatherings and refined over six years of intensive trainings—which brings authentic engagement and meaning to any group that comes together for any purpose. Convening goes beyond facilitating. Convening creates an environment in which all voices are heard, profound exchanges take place, and transformative action results. The heart of this book is the Convening Wheel—a series of nine steps, or aspects, that bring the practices and principles needed for authentic engagement together as a whole. The book provides exercises, stories, and questions to help you master both the inner and outer dimensions of this work—because in convening, the state of the convener is equally as important as the physical preparations. Convening works in any setting and can be adapted to virtually any group process. With this book you have all the tools you need to develop this essential life and leadership skill, one that will lead to improved outcomes in your organization, community, family, and relationships.
