You can live a happier life. Discover your type and live a happy life according to your personality. This book shows five different paths to happiness based on psychology and ancient philosophy. An inspirational book to escape the rat race and find authentic happiness, financial freedom and success in your life.

How can you find happiness in your life? How to be happy? We all want to live a happy life. But most of the time we look for happiness in the wrong place or take the wrong approach to it. There is really not a "one-size-fits-all" happiness recipe that works for everybody. We are all different. What makes someone live happy may not be the ideal for another person. This is why this book offers you five different paths to happiness.

Why five paths? Because according to modern psychology, most people can be fitted into five categories. Because, according to ancient Eastern wisdom, there are five elements that govern the universe. Because the holistic systems that are used for healing, like Traditional Chinese Medicine and Ayurveda, are based on the interaction of five elements in the human body, mind and emotions.

The five alternative paths presented to you as happiness hacks in this book come from a methodical observation of how the five elements that rule the universe can be translated into practical knowledge and choices to become happy in our daily lives. Interestingly, these five elements also correspond to the five main characters or personality types of people. They all have different traits and different potentials that rightly understood give you the key to living your life according to your own constitutional emotional structure.

Do you want the five elements of effective thinking and feeling, the five personality types and the five paths to happiness explained in easy terms? This book does that for you, combining psychology and counseling with ancient wisdom in a practical way. It is an easy reading self-help book that fosters your personal development, your happiness habits and your happy living.

The final chapter on how to increase your happiness dispels the myths that surround the achievement of happiness in our modern society and analyzes the true essence of an authentic happiness. It offers a sound alternative to the "rat race" in which many people are trapped and a happiness mindset for financial freedom and for living happiness everyday.

Happiness is a choice. By knowing the five paths and understanding the true essence of happiness, people have a choice. You can be happier and live a happier life. This book shows you how.

Many people live in a state of confusion and lack of clarity regarding their real passion and purpose in life. In today's globalized world, most people spend their time living reactively and being the targets of too much information, too many ads and too many distractions on a daily basis.

This complicates having clarity, staying focused, maintaining concentration and making clear decisions even on the most simple matters of your life, let alone on the really important, truly relevant questions of your life.

At the end of the day, many people fill empty, devoided of emotional nurturance and with an inner desire of authentic joy and fulfillment at emotional level, together with a longing for a higher sense of purpose, clarity and peace at soul level.

The first purpose of this book is to increase your consciousness about the utmost importance of joy in your life. The second purpose is to give you important tips and hints to clearly identify your true passion in life. The third one is to help you discover your main life purpose with the use of different methods you can choose from. The fourth one is to show you some ways to actually live your passion and purpose.

Once you realize the important role that authentic joy plays in shaping your life and discover your personal passion and purpose in life, you can live more in accordance to it on a daily basis and be therefore happier mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Ultimately, "happiness is the meaning and the purpose of life, the whole aim and end of human existence," as Aristotle rightly said. But we are all different and our paths are unique, so we have to figure them out. This book will help you identify yours.

“If I could give each of you a graduation present, it would be this—the most inspiring book I've ever read."

Selected by The New York Times Book Review as a Notable Book of the Year

The author of Enlightenment Now and The New York Times bestseller The Stuff of Thought offers a controversial history of violence.

Faced with the ceaseless stream of news about war, crime, and terrorism, one could easily think we live in the most violent age ever seen. Yet as New York Times bestselling author Steven Pinker shows in this startling and engaging new work, just the opposite is true: violence has been diminishing for millenia and we may be living in the most peaceful time in our species's existence. For most of history, war, slavery, infanticide, child abuse, assassinations, programs, gruesom punishments, deadly quarrels, and genocide were ordinary features of life. But today, Pinker shows (with the help of more than a hundred graphs and maps) all these forms of violence have dwindled and are widely condemned. How has this happened?

This groundbreaking book continues Pinker's exploration of the esesnce of human nature, mixing psychology and history to provide a remarkable picture of an increasingly nonviolent world. The key, he explains, is to understand our intrinsic motives--the inner demons that incline us toward violence and the better angels that steer us away--and how changing circumstances have allowed our better angels to prevail. Exploding fatalist myths about humankind's inherent violence and the curse of modernity, this ambitious and provocative book is sure to be hotly debated in living rooms and the Pentagon alike, and will challenge and change the way we think about our society.
