Comme beaucoup de livres américains, le propos est clair, très bien structuré et illustré par de nombreux témoignages. Les auteurs ont fait de vraies recherches approfondies sur le terrain (c'est un aspect qui me plait particulièrement) et en ont retiré les 9 éléments qui sont à la base du vrai bonheur. Chaque chapitre s'attaque en détail à un de ces "secrets" en expliquant le pourquoi, le comment, en l'illustrant par des anecdotes et en proposant à chaque fois plusieurs exercices de réflexion à faire sur soi-même.
Le propos m'a complètement convaincu. J'ai commencé à travaillé plusieurs chapitres ... mais c'est comme tous les livres et stages de développement personnels, si on ne fait pas un travail sur soi, toute la connaissance reste purement livresque, il faut s'investir et pratiquer à haute dose pour espérer intégrer réellement un tel changement (un tel apprentissage) dans sa vie.
Je le conseille vivement, surtout accompagné d'un stylo, d'un cahier et d'un grand désir de changement !

Happy People are Wise People 16 septembre 1999
Par Jennifer - Publié sur
Format: Relié
I am a happy person. I won't go so far as saying I am wise, but I did not become happier by accident. It was a conscious choice.
I read "How We Choose to Be Happy" to see if the authors had come to the same conclusions I had. They did. I have been carrying a small card around with me since 1996. It says things like "experience & express gratitude," "make happiness a priority," and "be present." It's amazing how many of the choices listed in this book are on my old beat up card. Maybe it's not a coincidence.
In our culture there is this odd belief that you must be an idiot if you're happy. I have no idea how this myth got started but I have found just the opposite to be true. It takes a logical mind to see where choice is involved in our emotions. My life circumstances are not totally how I would like them to be. I decided to not wait for ideal conditions before I experienced joy. I figured out that I could experience happiness WHILE creating the life I wanted. If I waited for everything to be perfectly how I wanted it to be, I concluded I might be waiting a very, very long time.
Get the book. Make it personal by seeing how the choices might apply in your life. Why wait?

This book changed my life. 30 octobre 2002
Par Un client - Publié sur
Format: Broché
I wish that I could give everyone this book! When I read this book in my mid-30s, I had come to the sad conclusion that I was somehow incapable of being happy. I had everything I'd ever wanted -- a wonderful husband and two adorable children whom I loved very much, a great job with a good income, etc., etc. And yet I kept falling into despair ... I couldn't figure out how to be happy, and finally decided that my brain was just not "wired" for happiness. But when I stumbled across this book a few years ago, it changed everything. Of course, I still have normal bad days, times when I feel sad or discouraged. But it's different now -- I don't despair -- I know that I'm finally learned how to be truly happy, and nothing can take that away from me now. READ THIS BOOK!!

Excellent, practical and timely! 19 juillet 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur
Format: Relié
While many of us work very hard, few of us can sincerely claim to be truely fulfilled and genuinely happy. From analysis of the life stories of many genuinely happy people, Hicks and Foster synthesize a simple yet powerful and practical model for achieving happiness in our daily lifes.
Though "How We Choose to be Happy" is not a psychology book, the Nine Step Model is firmly founded in Human Potential psychology. All we Humans want to be in control of our lives. When we aren't in control we feel powerless, victimized and possibly alienated. When we are in control, we feel powerful, actualized and HAPPY. This well written book helps us recognize a straight forward path toward greater personal control of our lives and the rewarding happiness that results.
I highly recommend for old and young--anyone searching for more complete meaning in their lifes.

Practical Resource: Not A Self-Help "Plan" 23 novembre 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur
Format: Relié
The author's outline of the "9 choices of extremely happy people" seems fairly complete: intention (to be happy), accountability (for one's own happiness), identification (of what makes one happy), centralization (making working towards happiness central in daily life), recasting (interpretation of tragic or unhappy experiences for redeeming value), options, appreciation, giving, and truth. I like that their "outline" doesn't require one to necessarily rely on a religious or supernatural belief that not everyone will necessarily share, nor do they have a one-size-fits-all approach that equates success with happiness. Although I don't really want some psychologist, self-help author, or religious leader to prescribe a detailed magic formuala for happiness, other people may miss having a detailed course of "what do we do now?" Another weakness (unavoidable) is that the author's acknowledge that perhaps only 50% of happiness is voluntary, the other half may be genetically or biologically determined, that is hardwired into us. Still, we have to start somewhere. I think that the 9 choices are useful to evaluating the way we leading our lives and making some improvement.

It is a choice 11 décembre 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur
Format: Relié
I was somewhat on the fence about buying this book, but the "choose" in the title is what sold me. I'd just reviewed Stephen Covey's concept of proactivity being based on choice and I wondered if this would lead in the same direction. I found it did. My experience with Covey was that he was the business leader who expressed a system that focused on balancing what is best for the individual with the organization goals, as opposed to the barrage of downsizing, MBO, reengineering, etc. books that basically preached focus on the bottom line and the process, forget the people.
This book focuses how an indivdual can change their life via the choices made on a daily basis. The examples of leadership and personnal growth that are chronicled in this book are the bedrocks of both happy lives and successful enterprises. Anyone who has worked or lived among morose, downtrodden and dispair ridden coworkers or family members can see the value and potential in people who come to the realizations outlined in this book. The individual transformations outlined in the book are similar to those I have seen in coworkers and family members over the past 20 years. Also, I can say that the areas in my own life that are not all I'd like them to be are in some way "out of alignment" with a principle outlined in this book. Overall, it is right on target.
