THE STAIRWAY TO HAPPINESS examines what happiness really is. It explores the different levels of that can be attained and the techniques that can be applied to achieve happiness for oneself, one's loved ones and other people. The book combines philosophy, psychology and spirituality to explain the 5 key steps of the journey. With over 20 years of experience working in this field, Vernon Sankey points out potential pitfalls and hazards along the way and provides practical solutions based on sound cognitive psychology principles and common sense.
Examples, anecdotes and quotations from eminent and wise personalities are used to help the reader understand the principles more deeply. The last section, the Happiness of Harmony, moves the reader to the highest step and addresses spiritual concerns about life, our world and the future.
The material is relevant to parents, young adults, business executives and enlightened readers who want to grow personally and help others live a successful, harmonious, happy life.
