What you think impacts how you feel. Whether you are a happy person, or a miserable person, is a result of the outlook created by your beliefs and the system of thoughts that define them. But you also possess the ability to create new thoughts. Following a 7-step process, you will learn how to not just cultivate new thoughts, but whole systems of thoughts and new beliefs that can change your outlook. By the end of this course, you will be all set to reprogram your thinking and increase the happiness you feel in your daily life.
