MINNEAPOLIS, Dec. 28, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- It's a universal desire to experience a happy and successful life, but in today's crazy busy world, both seem more elusive. A new study by Minneapolis business coach Chuck Bolton shows happiness in the US is on the decline.
"We are too busy, distracted and living unhealthy lives that we forego our happiness. But it doesn't have to be that way," said CEO coach and bestselling author Bolton who shares a holistic system for reinventing your happiness in his new book, The Reinvented Me: Five Steps to Happiness in a Crazy Busy World, released on December 28, 2015.
"Forty percent of your happiness is based on your voluntary actions – driven by your thoughts and behaviors. And it's your birthright to be happy," he said.
"Findings in the field of neuroscience prove the brain is malleable and you can reinvent how you think and behave in order to increase your happiness. We're hardwired to perform our best when we're happy," he said.
Bolton's Rules for Applying the Five Steps to Happiness in the C-Suite:
- Reinvent your mindset
- Reinvigorate your relationships
- Develop the eight happiness skills
- Reclaim your energy, then your time
- Reinvent by training, not just trying.
"If people follow these five steps, they will be on the road to living an intentional, purposeful life, raising your happiness level and raising your success," he said.
Within the book, Bolton describes the conflict between the Repeater (our lesser self) and the Reinventor (our higher self) we each fight within. Bolton shares step-by-step the techniques to reinvent your happiness and become successful. Executives who want to be happier will discover:
