There are no words to explain full extent of self awareness that's had by reading or listening to this book.
If someone told me earlier that happiness causes success, I would have never believed. But this book really shows in depth how that works.
I have noted lately how a happy mood actually does make me more creative, intelligent and passionate. All of which make others too happy, creative and passionate by induction. And it just improves my life.
The suggestion of fulcrum and level has made a huge difference in way I interpret things and how satisfied I feel with life. :) Surely I do not paint the life bright in a Pollyanna style, but I do notice ways to look at things that are just as real but more positive. We often ignore the positive aspects of situation and concentrate on the bad. Why? Just to hijack our emotional response ? :) I feel that with the real but the positive way of looking at things makes me feel living a good life and makes me more productive. And the positive way of looking at things is infectious.
I also invest more in social relationships. In tough situations I specially reach out and talk instead of going it alone. And those terribly stressful situations suddenly become so much more manageable and I feel more in control of my destiny. It does make my work life more happy as I also create more trusting relationships.
Overall I highly recommend this book.
