From the Foreword:
Ray White is now providing clarity on the connection between happiness and success like no one ever has before. His book will not only give you a distinct advantage in your professional pursuits, but, more importantly, in that most elusive pursuit of all … the pursuit of happiness.
So many people go to great lengths to be successful, believing that from success comes happiness. Some cheat their health in exchange for wealth. Others shortchange relationships as they chase down promotions. In the name of “success,” many miss life altogether, its lessons, its experiences and its simple pleasures.
In this book, Ray shows that happiness actually comes before success, not after it. He spells out how the two are eternally bound, and he walks you through a methodology that will change the way you think about success, and life.
Ray lives a life of clarity and conviction. The pages before you make this abundantly clear. His research, experiences and approach are both unique and refreshing. From understanding the differences between pleasure and happiness, to identifying your unique and higher purpose, to defining success in a way that you have never attempted before, this book is a powerfully inspirational gift to anyone who reads it. As you read each page, commit to putting the principles and guidance to use. Let them catapult your results, to another level.
Let this be the day that you made happiness a powerful priority.
