A Nudge Toward Happiness

Dear Treasured Traveling Companions,

‘It’s possible for you to feel happy—and that choice is yours to make at any moment.’ — Michael Neill (

I have had a horrible allergy for far too long. Perhaps you do, too. Sales and marketing have somehow seemed against my nature. I have felt that to sell or promote compromises your integrity. I have not felt comfortable in this role for as long as I can remember. I have held the belief that self-promotion is shameful and making money means that someone else goes without. Pretty limiting mis-beliefs, don’t you think?

We all have our old stories that we live as if they were true. But, they ain’t necessarily so. Realizing this, I have been on the journey of re-writing my old stories and redefining my relationship with my work, with money, and with promotion so that I can do the work that I love, live prosperously so I can be generous, and reach those whose road may become easier by my services. Sales, promotion, and prosperity can be slimy or spiritual, meaningful or maddening. I get to choose. If I want to serve and make a difference, it’s about time I get over the old limiting beliefs and make room for what makes joy possible.

I think many of us share this allergy, and in taking proactive steps toward peace, freedom, joy and success, I have included making friends with money, sales and marketing as essential to my journey. It has always been easy for me to promote those who I have been touched by, but self-promotion has had its roadblocks.

Money, promotion and success aren’t bad. They need not lead to slimy, pushy behavior. When offered with integrity and honesty, they lead instead to being a channel of service, support, and mutual gain. I can’t remember who it was that said, “Money does not make a man, but reveals him”. All I need to do is be who I authentically am as I share my passions and insights.

A friend, coach, and colleague in the field of happiness who has helped me expand my vantage point, undo my ‘nots’ and get of my ‘but’ is Michael Neill. He is an amazing writer, coach, radio host, and voice-over talent. Michael is the voice of the Villian in Scooby Doo, so he has my grandson’s deep admiration for a reason other than mine. Simply put, he is a light hearted, creative gem of a man who offers many practical gifts.

Your Keys to Happiness from Michael Neill’s Feel Happy Now! Happiness is the process of creating and experiencing good feelings in your body and mind, moment by moment by moment.

While in theory happiness makes us feel wonderful, in practice it enables us to create a more and more wonderful life. The three tools we use to build our happiness—the way we use our body, the maps we make in our minds, and the stories we tell ourselves— are the same tools we employ to make ourselves miserable. Once you master the process, you get to choose the result.

As you learn to stop arguing with reality, let go of trying to control what’s outside of your control, and start making clear choices about how you want to be and behave in the world, you’ll find yourself with less stress and greater serenity than ever before.

…perhaps the greatest secret in life is this: There is nothing wrong with you. Except for the stories you may be telling yourself about how you’re supposed to be, what you’re supposed to be doing, and who you’re supposed to (or not supposed to) be doing it with, you are perfect exactly as you are.

…it isn’t just what we do when we’re happy, but our happiness itself that makes a difference in the world.

Occasionally, someone will ask whether using these tools will mean that they’ll never feel unhappy again. Fortunately, the answer is no—I’ve yet to come across a lasting, meaningful happiness that doesn’t include the full spectrum of experience and emotion. But I know for myself the joy of a life that gets better and better as I become happier and happier.
