Be the architect of your own happiness with the Blueprint to Happy, a straight-forward guide on how to transform negative thought patterns into a game-changing preference for positivity.

The Blueprint offers a straight-forward six-step process that helps you recognize when your own negativity bias is taking over, how to interrupt it, and how to rewire your brain to prefer positivity instead.

When you have rewired your brain to prefer positivity, you will become a better problem solver, broaden and deepen your relationships and even heal faster. The Blueprint will explain why you can count on these benefits, and describes what larger possibilities await when readers unlock this potential.

How does the Blueprint work?

The Blueprint to Happy is based on a simple premise:

It’s a numbers game

When it comes to finding happiness, the secret is to outnumber your negative thoughts with positive thoughts.
Humans have been conditioned to pay more attention to negative thoughts rather than positive ones as a survival mechanism.
This is called Negativity Bias, and looks a little something like this:
Notice how the single negative event grows and outweighs the five positive events in the brain.
This is because in the past, if we ignored even one potential dangerous situation, it could mean the difference between life and death.
We have come a long way since this initial survival mechanism was hardcoded into our brains, but because of this programming we tend to treat everyday inconveniences, annoyances, missteps, mistakes, and slights as major issues to concern ourselves with.
The result? We are robbed of happiness in favor of fretting over things we can’t control, and are not as life-threatening as our programming would have us believe.

What’s the Goal?

The goal is to train your brain to prefer positivity, which studies have shown drastically increase our abilities to live happier, healthier and fulfilled lives.

The best part about building this preference?

It gets easier over time, until it becomes as easy and simple as breathing.

This is because your brain likes whatever you do most – regardless of right or wrong, healthy or unhealthy.

Still skeptical?
