Shift Happens! is a small book, with 55 small chapters packed full of big thoughts and life-changing, perspective-changing wisdom. Many of our daily self-defeating behaviors chip away at our happiness. Robert Holden provides insight on how we can shift our perspectives and recapture the joy life has to offer.
Shift Happens! is written under the philosophy of personal alchemy: “The first law of personal alchemy states, the world changes when you do.” Each chapter begins with a story or event, describes how a shift in perspective, a new view of yourself or the world around you, can produce a new outcome. Also included are exercises to help the reader teach themselves to think differently, view the world differently, and ultimately live in happiness.
Shift Happens! provides a reminder that “life is what we make it” and “we are our own worst enemies,” but most importantly it provides a guidebook for embracing a life of joy and defeating the enemy within. It is a bedside-table book that begs to be read over and over; after all, it is through these gentle reminders that habitual behaviors of a happy life are built.
