Delivering Happiness

What is success? What is happiness? What am I working toward? Are you humble when talking about your accomplishments ?Do you treat everyone with the same amount of respect that they treat you?shoes

The feelings I experienced reading Delivering Happiness: A Path to Profits, Passion, and Purpose by Tony Hsieh are like feelings I had both as an undergraduate and as a graduate student. ” I’d start to force myself to think again about what I was trying to get out of life. I asked myself what I was trying to accomplish, what I wanted to do, and whether I should be sitting at a different table”(69). I was finding myself and my purpose: a sense of learning, pops of ah ha moments, and excitement about the future mixed with fond memories of the past and dreams of the future (envision , create, and believe in your own universe and the universe around you (85). This book makes me hopeful of what I can accomplish, and proud of what I already have. The book combines an entrepreneurial success story with valuable lessons on leadership, marketing, branding, customer service, and corporate culture. Whether you’re an entrepreneur, corporate executive, or someone who’s in a career transition or just looking to become a better person. I think you’ll find something in the book that will motivate you–or at least get you looking through a different lens and if nothing else you will  learn the meaning of PLUR which is an acronym that stands for Peace, Love , Unity, Respect.  Have you read this book? What book has had a impact on your life or has made you self reflect?

  1. Not read this one, but my immediate response to your question is Finn’s ‘Mister God, this is Anna’
