This review is from: Being Happy: Part 1 (Kindle Edition)
David Tuffley has some good advice for being a happier person and living in the moment rather than in the past or always being conscious of the future. His method of doing this is called Self Actualization. There are several steps to self actualization, but they are all rather simple ones, such as listening to your own taste, letting your true sense emerge and choosing between the safety of the known path and taking a risk.
This is a short essay-type publication, but one that can be read over a few times in order to absorb all of its messages. Some of the steps in the process of self actualization could be explained in more detail, but most are simple in concept. The author begins by saying that we get fleeting happiness from goods and services but it doesn't last. It is a result of our global consumer society. Creating the right conditions for ourselves leads to inner happiness and that kind lasts. Accepting people for exactly who they are is also another step along the way.
I enjoyed reading this and plan to read it again. It isn't anything purely outstanding, but it is written simply and from the heart of the author. He sounds sincere in wanting other people to find what he has found through self actualization.
