Pages: Bringing happiness ‘365 and ¼ days’

Happiness is a universal aspiration of people regardless of age, sex, nationality, ethnicity, culture, religious belief, status, sexual orientation, educational background, political stance, and stature in society. People do what they do because they want to be happy. It is a common pursuit, though manifested and expressed in varied ways.

The book Happiness 365 and ¼ Days is packed with motivational stories in the life of Jimmy Belleza who rose from poverty and dismal life conditions and later progressed as an entrepreneur, business consultant and trainer, radio anchor, sought-after public speaker, and as the Philippines’ Happiness Guru.

Jimmy Belleza, author of "Happiness 365 and 1/4 Days," a book packed with motivational stories 

You will find vivid and meaningful connections on how he conquered his fears and survived life’s challenges.

The take-away for the readers are the Eight (8) HapiNets to put a smile in your life all year-round and throughout your lifetime.

Nets are known to catch or ensnare fish, birds or insects. They are also used as barriers or mesh.

This book reveals that happiness lies within each person. The source is not from the outside; it is a natural inner feeling. However, it is also innate in us not to be separated from others who can help enrich our being. It is crucial that we capture as much optimism and blessings that we can from the sea of life as perceived by the Happiness Guru.

Once we have harnessed and controlled our inner feelings, then we are able to share that overflowing joy externally. Indeed, as the Latin quote says, “Nemo dat quod non habet”, meaning no one can give what he doesn’t have.

 Happiness 365 and ¼ Days, written by Canada-based Filipino writer Lucy Lombos will be released very soon.
