For the longest time, we’ve associated prosperity, growth and success with happiness. And yet, look around and you’ll find that despite unprecedented advancement in every human endeavor, true happiness remains as elusive as ever. Even with the best intentions we find it difficult to experience genuine happiness, and struggle to lead powerfully without using formal power
- Why is it that material gain and personal achievement have not led to greater well-being and better leadership?
- Why do people remain stressed, on-edge and frustrated even when they possess inexhaustible wealth?
- What is it in our pursuit of happiness that leaves us even less happy than ever before?
- Why do we fail to learn from the likes of Gandhi, Mandela and Martin Luther King on what it truly means to lead?
Maybe it’s time to redefine our idea of happiness. Maybe it’s time to refocus it from ‘having’ – more money, more riches, more of everything – to teing’; being contributive, being whole, being at peace Maybe it’s time to breathe new life into happiness by combining ancient wisdom with contemporary insight.
To do this, we invite you to take an uplifting, empowering and hopefully transformative journey into the country of Bhutan, where the concept of Gross National Happiness has changed the way the world looks at success and happiness.
