It has been said that if one can master her habits she can master her life. Mastery of happiness is the inspiration for today’s podcast on the Seven Habits of Incredibly Happy People. Over the last decade I’ve studied, observed, and experimented with the usefulness of habit. I first came across the concept of the effectiveness of habits from the super success business and self-help book by Steven Covey called The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People. First if you have not read this book add it to your winter reading list! It’s a game changer in terms of life and time management. Second with this book as a light guide I set out to uncover the habits of the happiest humans on the planet.
In today’s podcast I break each of them down and give you solid examples of how I’ve become the happiest person I know by applying each of these habits throughout my life.

15:25 Habit Two helps you get more of the things you want in life
21:05 Habit Three causes you to focus on what you do have and what you can do rather than what you can’t do and don’t have
