Course #17 is about HAPPINESS – in this course we’ll discuss what it means to live from the decision to be happy no matter what, knowing that happiness is a choice and a skill. Happiness is available in every moment. Your happiness is entirely up to you. Being happy doesn't depend on accomplishments, acquisitions or the absence of problems. If you’re only happy when something happens to make you happy, that’s not happiness, that’s a stimulus response. Deciding to be happy is the most important decision you will ever make. Happiness is your natural state and you’ll come to experience happiness as the background music in your life: there constantly. Your own happiness is perhaps the greatest gift you give to those you love.
