Being Happy: Part 2

In Being Happy Part 2, we shall take a look at the work of Martin Seligman, a foremost proponent of the positive psychology movement and a leading source of advice on being happy.

    Practical? That’s the difficult part. This book has a lot of feel good phrases and stresses becoming “self actualized,” but for the average person, it is similar to candy. Enjoyable to eat, but will not significantly improve your life.
    What the author calls “self actualization,” a nice, vague New Age term, is something that the average person reading this will not accomplish. Why? Because being “self actualized” is a vague, New Age term.
    There are bits and pieces of information that can help you enjoy life more, and for that I give the book two stars. However, most of this can be found elsewhere in other New Age style self-help books. If you are looking for something to read that will make you feel better for a few hours or even days, this is great. It is an easy read, and the author is coherent in presenting his subject matter. The problem is that the subject matter is pretty fluffy if you are in need of down and dirty advice to solve life’s more pressing problems. I would like to see the author tackle a more serious topic, as his writing style was quite enjoyable.

    David Tuffley has some good advice for being a happier person and living in the moment rather than in the past or always being conscious of the future. His method of doing this is called Self Actualization. There are several steps to self actualization, but they are all rather simple ones, such as listening to your own taste, letting your true sense emerge and choosing between the safety of the known path and taking a risk.

    This is a short essay-type publication, but one that can be read over a few times in order to absorb all of its messages. Some of the steps in the process of self actualization could be explained in more detail, but most are simple in concept. The author begins by saying that we get fleeting happiness from goods and services but it doesn’t last. It is a result of our global consumer society. Creating the right conditions for ourselves leads to inner happiness and that kind lasts. Accepting people for exactly who they are is also another step along the way.

    I enjoyed reading this and plan to read it again. It isn’t anything purely outstanding, but it is written simply and from the heart of the author. He sounds sincere in wanting other people to find what he has found through self actualization.
