Hands on the Wheel
Pursuit of Happiness

‘Are you happy’?  Take your time with that, it’s a question that deserves some consideration. A quick inventory may reveal a roof over your head, food in the fridge, kids doing well, marriage intact, and an occasional vacation. ‘Yes’ the answer may be. Or maybe you’re not so sure, ‘I think so’? Maybe you have all those things you think ‘should’ make you happy, yet it feels something is missing? 

Frequently, in answering this question, people search for the presence or absence of problems in one’s life, or identify things they need to change, or attain, before happiness could be truly achieved.  Or the answer to the question may simply depend upon what type of day or week one is having? One day happy, another not. 

This program intends to set you on a path towards sustainable contentedness. No matter what is happening in the outside world, you can learn to be alright.  Once attaining a foundation of stability (less and less vulnerable to those things outside of your control), you can then push towards being the best version of yourself. 

It is rare for someone to be fully self-actualized. Buddha, Jesus, Madonna… Unfortunately most people are under-achieving. Underachieving can be letting fear influence your decisions, negative self-image, escaping through drugs or food or netflix, blaming others for your problems, and the list goes on. 

The reality (whether we want to admit it or not) is that we’re our own worst enemies. We don’t underachieve because of others. We are the primary problem. 

The flip side of this is that We Are The Primary Solution. We have everything we need within us.
