Happiness, Joy and Gratitude

Ever think about what it would take to make you really happy? To feel a deep sense of joy?

Others focus on lifestyle, travel, a stress-free job, or free time.

Many want more time with family and friends.

This uplifting video (7:14) shows the surprising role that GRATITUDE plays in achieving real, deeply satisfying happiness.

Watch this powerful exchange between Oprah Winfrey and Brene’ Brown to find out why Dr. Brown makes such a disconcerting statement, and yet prescribes GRATITUDE as the solution.

“There is no joy without gratitude.” – Oprah Winfrey
