Show synopsis I'm going to let you in on a secret: you've already got everything you need to be happy. You don't need to land a new job or change your career. You don't need to find a mate or lose weight. Being happy requires no change in your personal, work, or financial life. There's no need to talk to a plastic surgeon or career counsellor to feel better about yourself and your life. We've been taught and raised to believe happiness is somehow linked to our position in the world: where, how, with whom, and even how long we live. This is an insidious myth. No amount of money, no other person, no level of professional success will ever be enough to make you happy. Only you can make yourself happy. In "It's All in Your Head", Stephen M. Pollan and Mark Levine weave the moving stories of real people with the observations of great philosophers and spiritual leaders, to reveal the simple truths that Pollan has seen reflected in the lives of successful, fulfilled, and energetic people. By taking responsibility for your own happiness, you have the opportunity to reach fulfilment today, rather than "when...". We can be happy with our lives today, by avoiding those pitfalls and adopting eight essential attitudes: you're just where you're supposed to be; it gets better; own your success; you don't have to go it alone; there's no time like now, so take the action; your best is enough; the past is past; and tomorrow is too late.
