My guest co-host for this adventure is the prolific author of 8 books (with more on the way!), speaker and amazing human being- Peter Jennings. Renowned sociologist Dr. Christine Carter of the University of California Greater Good Science Center has labeled Peter a "Happiness Expert" (she regularly appears with Oprah and Dr. Oz and in all the best newspapers and magazines). He was somewhat surprised to find her calling me a Happiness Expert and told her that. “Just a moment Peter,” she said. “I don’t know anyone who’s interviewed 37 people from around the world about happiness. I don’t know of anyone who’s interviewed several international PhDs studying positive psychology to get their educated take on the science of happiness. And I don’t know anyone who’s been able to take all this information and synthesize it into a high readable, accessible book that is both entertaining and informative. You sir, are a ‘Happiness Expert’!” The book is “A Guide to Happiness: Why Being Happy Matters”.

On this episode we will talk about the relationship between Appreciation and Happiness, and how that relationship can create a powerful stream and focus of Joy in your life. We will also explore how our relationship with fear can seriously damage our superhighway of Joy; but more importantly, we’ll share tools to shift your relationship with fear through building a stronger relationship with Appreciation, Gratitude and Joy. I am looking forward to this Happy adventure!
