A true story about why we sabotage ourselves, feel overwhelmed, set aside our dreams, and lack the courage to simply be ourselves...and how to start choosing happiness again!
Are you happy? It may be the wrong question. Most of us think we are relatively happy, while at the same time knowing that we could be happier - maybe even a lot happier. Ordinary people and the finest philosophers have been exploring the question of happiness for thousands of years, and theories abound. But this is not a book of theory. Resisting Happiness is a deeply personal, disarmingly transparent look at why we sabotage our own happiness and what to do about it.
Are you overwhelmed? Do you procrastinate? Do you sometimes feel like you are your own worst enemy? Are you ignoring your dreams? Have you lost the courage to truly be yourself? Do you feel that your life lacks meaning and purpose? Do you find yourself avoiding the real issues in your life and focusing on the superficial?
We all experience these feelings and doubts from time to time. But do you know what to do when you experience them? In this fascinating book, Matthew Kelly uses his signature combination of the profound and the practical to help us understand why we feel these things and how to rise above them.
Breaking through resistance, Kelly tells us, is essential to becoming the best version of ourselves and living with passion and purpose.
What is resistance? It's that sluggish feeling of not wanting to do something that you know is good for you. It's the inclination to do something that you unabashedly know is not good for you. It's the desire and tendency to delay something you should be doing right now.
It is resistance that stands between you and happiness. In these audiobook you will learn not only what it is, but how to recognize and conquer it in your own life.

the chapter on critics is essential to anyone who is trying to remove the negative forces from their lives and rebuild
This is one of those books that has changed my outlook on life. I plan to follow the author's action tips at the end of each chapter in an effort to "stop resisting happiness". I encourage you to take the time to read this book!!
I found this book very enlightening and insightful, we all have some type or resistance in some form to overcome. I will listen again and work on improving myself as a Christian of God. I would recommend this book to everyone.
thanks Matthew Kelly. This book really does deliver what it promises. But not because I just read it but because it's riding inspired me to make changes in my life. I will recommend this book to anyone at any stage in life.
Thank you Matthew Kelly for being who you are and doing what you do. You are truly having a positive impact on my life. This is the fourth book of yours I have read. All of them have been inspiring and helpful.
Awesome, inspiring, a game changer! Matthew's philosophy as expressed in this book guides you through the simple steps we all can take to win in life while reconnecting with Catholicism in meaningful and very personal ways. I love that it is read by the author himself. Each point come across exactly as intended.
This book has truest awakened me! I feel that god and Catholicism may have been pushed a little too hard. Mr. Kelly seems to have truly found god and if that works for him then more power to him. This book from him has motivated me. So his mission completed again.
This book is full of personal stories and completely religious in nature (catholic). I may have overlooked the description that hinted to this, but this was not helpful to me. The brief description on the cover, was misleading to me.
