There are millions of self-help books that all promise the secret to obtaining a happy lifea successful career, lots of money, loving relationships, a defined and firm sense of morality; whatever could possibly define happiness” for one person. But nothing is possibly more subjective than happiness. Born with a deformity known as Pectus Excavatum (sunken chest) happiness eluded Brad Wheelis as he struggled with low self-esteem, perceive flaws, and societal pressure to be perfect. Eventually, he realized that he had been chasing the wrong ideal.
Today, Wheelis believes that a truly happy life is impossible. No one can be happy all of the time. But you can strive to achieve a fulfilled life that contains a myriad of emotions by making a series of changes: how your preconceived notions of fulfillment differ from realistic goals, what you want to accomplish for yourself, and how you can make those ideas come true. Making a conscious decision to transform your perceptions of both trivial and significant aspects of your life, one at a time, will lead you to your own kind of happiness and inner greatness. The Perception Myth combines personal memoir with a step-by-step approach to happiness for anyone who is afraid or does not know how to take risks. Fulfillment is around the corner; you just need to figure out how to reach it.
