The Hijacking of Happiness

THE LIE That Hijacked Your Happiness

Excessive consumerism creates happiness.

  • The person with the most purchasing power and the most lavish lifestyle is the happiest.
  • Excessive consumerism is a faulty happiness formula. It has hijacked our happiness, health, prosperity, patriotism, and problem-solving as a society.
  • This faulty happiness formula is the reason the United States isn’t in the world’s top ten countries in Gross National Happiness.

THE TRUTH About Happiness

Happiness is living in integrity with the inborn core drives we all have for authenticity, connection and impact.

  • Authenticity means being who you truly are.
  • Connection means enjoying nourishing relationships with others.
  • Impact means having a positive influence on the world around you.

This is 3D Happiness. Sustainably happy people have resilient happiness because they live their lives aligned with these three core drives. This alignment also makes them more self-responsible and socially responsible than other people.

Sustainably happy people present most businesses and politicians with a huge problem. Sustainable happiness makes citizens less dependent on government. It inclines people to spend less money than businesses want them to spend. In other words, sustainable happiness is great for you, but it’s not so great for government or the business world. At least that’s what many in business and government think. They could not be more wrong.

Taking back your happiness is the basic building block for taking back your health, prosperity, patriotism and problem-solving skills. The key to taking back your happiness is to express all three of your core drives every day in an aligned way so they don’t compete against each other.

  • Notice how easily you ignore one or more of your drives when you pursue the faulty happiness formula.
  • Notice how often honoring one core drive seems to conflict with honoring the other two when you pursue the faulty happiness formula.
  • Upgrade your sustainable happiness (3D Happiness) by learning how to honor all three of your core drives without them competing against each other. The resources in the “Take Your Next Step” section below will show you how.
