I want to try something different this week. Instead of writing an article I want to create a discussion and get your thoughts on a topic that can help shape the way that we all interact with the world. It can also shape the future direction of The Start of Happiness. It’s a subject that has the potential to change your life.
Previously on The Start of Happiness we have shared the Happiness Manifesto, outlining the 43 Habits of Absolutely Happy People. We have also shared the Happiness Model, describing the linkage between happiness and success and what really comes first. These two articles are great foundations for understanding happiness and where it sits in relation to performance, success and overall wellbeing.
Today I am throwing the ball into your court and I, as well as the greater Start of Happiness community would love to hear from you! This is part of our new Ask the Reader series where you get to provide your thoughts and ideas on the subject matter and open it up for discussion.
So what is the topic that is open for discussion?
Well, it’s pretty straight-forward… it’s HAPPINESS!
Up until now, each week I have been providing you my insights from the personal and leadership development fields that I work within and show you how simple things can make a big difference in your life. But now I’d love to turn it around. I want to hear what works in your life.
Everyone on this planet has a different genetic makeup, different circumstances and different environment. Therefore what works for some of us may not work for all of us.
Because of this, I’m going to ask each of you a question. Whether you are from the USA, Canada, UK, Europe, South Africa, India, Singapore, Australia, wherever… we want to hear from you!
There’s no right or wrong answers, but the perspectives and thoughts of many will be invaluable for helping you come to your own conclusion.
Ok, so let’s get into it!
The question I am throwing out to you is:
‘What do you believe is the number one factor for bringing happiness to your life?’
As simple as that…
What makes you happy?
When you’re answering that question, think about how much time you actually spend doing that particular thing, whatever it may be. How can you bring more of this into your life?
But don’t keep this to yourself. The Start of Happiness is a growing community of like-minded individuals seeking personal excellence all over the world… and we’d love to hear from you!

What you say might just make the difference to someone else on the other side of the world. This is seriously powerful.
Remember, you can change the world, one smile at a time 🙂
