For all of you that have been hit by hurricanes the last couple weeks, our hearts and prayers go out to you. Maybe you are going through a personal hurricane currently. Our hearts go out to you as well. We had a podcast already planned out for this week, but really wanted to send out one that would encourage those who have lost so much the last couple weeks. If there was ever a time we need some happy it is now. Please listen and be encouraged, and if you know of anyone else who could really use some hope or encouragement, please share and let's spread some happy.

Special thanks to James Kocian for the use of his original music "Still A Kid", "Another Perfect Day" and "Mission" Check out more of his music here https://soundcloud.com/james-kocian)

I don't know about you, but I've found that when someone pushes me, (whether it's physical, emotional, verbal etc.) I find myself wanting to push back...real bad! Question is, are you in charge of your emotions, or are your emotions in charge of you? Because emotions love to bully us around. You will find that if you stand up to your emotions, they will back down and change their tune real fast. This is important to our happy because you can't plant sadness and then harvest happiness, just like you can't plant corn and expect strawberries. It's impossible. So plant happy and you'll harvest happy.

Have you ever found yourself winning only to realize you lost? You were so focused on something right in front of you that you forgot the reason you started that thing or process in the first place? Having the start of the NFL season right around the corner, I found myself in the mood to podcast about it. Sometimes grabbing Happy is as easy as letting go of sadness. I had a defensive coordinator of a state championship football team tell me, that he tells his defensive linemen to strike, press, extend and then shed the offensive lineman. He told me that sometimes his linemen stay engaged with their opponent too long. They get too involved. They're in their lane, fighting and winning their assignment but in the long run miss the quarterback altogether. I think this is true in life as well. We're doing our job, and we have an opportunity to become the hero. We just have to disengage the sadness and sack the happy. Let go of our opponent. Stop focusing too much on the obstacle in front of us. And then simply reach out and sack the Happy. After all, it's a little difficult to grab one thing when you're holding on to another. Everyone faces opposition. We can't ignore that (unless we prefer to lose in life). However, we can focus on the obstacle, opponent, failure, negativity too much. It's pretty easy to do (for me anyways). Sometimes all the enemy of our souls, all the sadness of our life has to do to win, is to get us to focus too much on the problems and obstacles right in front of us.

I'm baaaaack. Have you missed me?
How is one supposed to handle evil? Put our head in the sand, or lace up the gloves and fight back? I think this episode is very timely due to the events that happened in Charlottesville this last week. There seems to be so much evil and hatred in the world today. People of all opinions are talking about it. Have you perused Facebook lately? Maybe you've even quit Facebook due to these posts so rudely overtaking our news-feeds. Whatever happened to what we had for dinner last night? (Which, honestly might be the only plus side of it all actually lol). Seriously though, of all the people fighting this evil and hatred, I haven't seen too many fighting it the way we're going to talk about it in this episode, which is too bad since it's actually the best and most successful way to fight evil and hate. It should be, since God Himself created, as well as endorses it. So what is the best way to fight evil, hatred, negativity, etc? This advice, if followed, will not only begin to push back the tide of evil and hate, it will also increase our happy and decrease our sad in the midst of it all!
I understand a lot of people saying they are quitting or are planning on quitting Facebook due to all of the negative and angry posts, however, I think there is a better and a more powerful way. Listen and let's change this world and spread some happy along the way. In fact, if this post makes sense to you, why not spread it on your social media? Why not spread other fun, positive, inspiring and happy posts? Watch and start with the YouTube link below.

What do you do when "life has killed the dream I dream"? Or, when "the tigers come at night...tear your hope apart and turn your dream to shame"? "I find it interesting, as well as sad, that the only time we talk about broken dreams, or our agonizing doubts that they will ever become a reality, are when they are a thing of the past and never a thing of our present." I think it's sad that we never talk about our broken dreams until we've already accomplished and conquered them, and never when we are in the brokenness of them. Talking about our broken and unmet dreams is precisely what helps us accomplish them. Dreams, just like Happy Life, are meant to be accomplished together.

"You with those sad eyes, don't be discouraged" Cindi Lauper, True Colors. This special episode was recorded on location at a retreat I was speaking at for people with disabilities. So the audio quality is not the typical Happy Life Studios quality but definitely worth listening to. God spoke the worlds in to existence, but you He made by hand. In fact, "if God had to choose between all the stars, the Grand Canyon, oceans and galaxies and you? He wouldn't even think for a second. He would pick you over those things in a heartbeat!" God made us to laugh, not to be guilty. He made us to be free. To be Happy. What the world needs, is for us to be us in our purest form. For us to let our true colors, the ones God made in us, to show..."like a rainbow".
Special thanks To Ian Anderson for the use of his song "Slow" as well as Cindi Lauper and Justin Timberlake for "True Colors".

Happy day after Easter, day after Lent, day after Holy week. So why did Jesus die anyway, and what does the word "Holy" even mean? I've found people get it wrong on both sides of the spectrum. From a flippant adjective describing cows, Hell or even poo to being a word others use to control, manipulate or abuse others with, is this what God set up for us? Did He send His son to earth to die so that our sins could be forgiven, or could there be even more? You don't want to miss this life giving episode. Listen and leave encouraged. Here are the two addresses for the Bible verses I quoted: 1 Peter 1:16 and Leviticus 20:8.

In this episode I interview a very good friend to me as well as to Happy Life Studios. His name is Tony Piantine and he, with his family and team, run Camp Daniel (a camp for people who live with disabilities) in northern Wisconsin. Check them out here at www.CampDaniel.org. In this episode we use the word "community" alot. This is because Happy Life Studios believes that community is the key to happiness. We're simply happier when we're together. We need each other to be happy. This is exactly why we have decided to launch something brand new to us. It's for everyone who wants to be happier. Listen and find out what this new launch is and how it will help you become happier. Special thanks to James Kocian for the music "Still A Kid" Check out more of his cool music here soundcloud.com/james-kocian

Happy #HappinessDay. Not only is today the first day of spring, but I think it symbolic that it is also International Day of Happiness. Yes there is such a day. It was passed by the United Nations June 28 2012, by Jayme Illien, who started life as an orphan on the Streets of Calcutta, wound up in Mother Theresa's orphanage and from there ended up in front of the U.N. who unanimously passed his resolution to start the "International Day of Happiness".

Special shout out to David Choi for the music "Day of Happiness". If you liked it you can check out his other music here youtube.com/davidchoimusic

take it with you


Iphone_trans Listening to podcasts on your mobile devices is extremely convenient -- and it's what makes the podcasting medium so powerful.

You can take your favorite shows and mixes with you anywhere, but to do so requires some quick and simple steps.

Let's walk you through that process together.
step 1:


Click the "Subscribe With iTunes" link in the page's sidebar:

Subscribe_with_itunes

This will require that you have the iTunes software on your computer.

(You can download iTunes here.)
step 2:
Itunes_ss

Now that you've subscribed to the podcast on iTunes, the feed will display in your "Podcasts" section on the left navigation bar.

Click there and you'll see the show displayed in the iTunes browser.

You can "get all" to download all available episodes or just individual episodes.
step 3:


Plug your mobile device (iPhone, iPad, iPod) into your computer with the Dock Connector cable, and click the device in iTunes's left navigation bar.

Itunes_ss2

Once you have your device highlighted, click "Podcasts" in the top navigation bar and sync the podcasts you want on your device. Click "apply" and the episodes you have downloaded on your iTunes software will sync with your device.
that's it!

The beauty of this process is that now, every new episode of your subscribed podcasts will automatically sync to your device every time you plug it in and open iTunes. You can now take your favorite shows with you everywhere you go.

Enjoy!
done!
