Introduction to Happiness
Happiness is certainly not an option. Everyone wants to be happy, and be happy all the time. It is a very basic and an undeniable human requirement. It is a reality that must be enabled in you to be a happy person for the good of yourself and others, in organisations to achieve better business results and in communities to be a happy country.
Developing a “Happy Mindset” is where it needs to start otherwise Happiness remains just an event that is short lived, not consistent and definitely not a lifestyle.
