A Harvard Study has recently confirmed that happiness is contagious.
They found that when a person becomes happy, a friend living close by has a 25 percent higher chance of becoming happy themselves. A spouse experiences an 8 percent increased chance and for next-door neighbors, it’s 34 percent.
So when someone says, “are you part of the solution or part of the problem,” the first thing you have to ask yourself is, “how happy have I been lately.”
And if you are not happy, the next conclusion is, you must not be surrounded by happy people. I call these groups of people who make you happy soul groups. Creating soul groups is one of the main purposes of the Rhys Thomas Institute of Energy. If you are having a hard time finding a soul group that is happy check out this short video about the school.
To make real and permeant change in your life around career, relationships or health, you have to have more energy, passion and enthusiasm. Doing your own inner work to discover your purpose makes you happy. Your happiness is contagious and simultaneously shares and attracts more happiness. (This is good.)
There was another study at University of California San Diego which found that every human being lives in some kind of social network. And happiness within those networks is more contagious than unhappiness.
What the study showed was that every additional person in your life that is happy increases your chance of being happy by about 9%, and every unhappy person on your life only increase your likelihood to be happy by only 7%.
I love when what I have been teaching at The Rhys Thomas Institute of Energy Medicine for years is validated by a researcher! The amazing transformations we perform in people’s live and the happiness they achieve in such a short time is directly related to this happiness effect.
How do you get started on being more happy?
1) Discover your deep inner purpose that makes you happy. My book Discover Your Purpose is a good place to start.
