Have you ever been tempted to give up on your dreams because it just seems like your dreams have died and been buried never to be seen again? Have you ever been soooo sad you didn't know what to do or how to hang on? Have you ever wondered how life can go from being so happy to so drastically difficult so fast? Is this OK? Is it normal? And what should we do when it happens?

The good news is, the Bible tells us that those who sow in sadness will harvest in happy. Something very positive is going on that you probably don't or can't see, much like a seed planted in the ground. The truth is, what you think is dying and being buried is actually being planted and growing. If you're going or have ever gone through a sad spot, you'll want to listen to this encouraging episode. Find out what to do and how to think when life goes from happy to sad. When and where dreams seem to die.

Does social media ever make you angry? It seems sometimes that I either want to roll my eyes or chuck my mouse across the room after spending just a minute scrolling through posts. Have you ever been tempted to just throw in the towel and delete all your accounts? Lately my heart has been troubled reading a lot of social media posts. So, I would like to address the issue I see in social media because it is a real unhappy life path many are choosing to walk on. This powerful principle is one of the key ingredients to people's happy or unhappy hearts. Check it out.

Important correction at 14:10 My mind accidentally combined "you don't fight evil with evil" and "You fight evil with good" but "you don't fight evil with good" came out instead. Sorry about that, I just noticed this months later. Too late to edit it.

Also stay tuned because I am creating some social media sites that will bring life and happy to those who visit and engage. Sites where Happy Lifers can go to increase their happy as well as meet and interact with others who are trying to stay positive in a world that can so easily bring us down.
"Don't judge each day by the harvest you reap, but by the seeds that you plant." Robert Lewis Stevenson

Ever feel like you're stuck in a rut? Like you were just going around in the same sad circle? Sadly enough, sometimes the ruts we're stuck in are the ones we have made ourselves. If you've ever struggled with finding or keeping your happy then you will want to listen to this episode. In it I talk about horse walkers. I had never heard of a horse walker before but that image got me out of my rut and back on happy trails.

You know what you think about you, but what would it be like if you could find out what God thinks about you? "Whoa. Hold on a minute there. Find out what God thinks about me?? NO THANKS!!" The thought of finding out what God thinks about us can be scary if one uses the wrong standard to measure by. Oftentimes the difference between successful and unsuccessful, happy and unhappy or encouraged and discouraged is simply the standard by which we measure our life by. Sometimes the only difference between a life that is a "keeper" and one that needs to be "thrown back" is a simple ruler. The measurement by which one judges, or thinks others do. This is key to living a happy life and I must say that for much of my life I simply used the wrong ruler.

This episode is brought to you in part by Camp Daniel http://www.campdaniel.org Thank you Camp Daniel, you not only change my life, you change the lives of so many others.

I'd also like to send a special shout out to my friends James Kocian https://soundcloud.com/james-kocian for providing the music "Light As A Feather" and Ian Anderson for providing the music "slow".

Can getting liked ever be bad? I mean you would think that that's the exact road you would travel to be happy, right???
Let's face it, in a world where "clicks" and "likes" (I call them clickes) are so valuable, it's easy to get sidetracked and forget why we even do what we do in the first place. However, remembering the why is a vital key to being happy. Especially if we do any social media at all. So why do we do what we do? Why did we start that business or make that comment? Listen and find out how someone can get so liked and yet still become so unhappy. Here is the popular Derek Sivers TED talks session "How to start a movement", with the dancing dude, I use https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V74AxCqOTvg to talk about exactly that.

Happy New Year! So, what is the fastest you've ever broken a New Years resolution? Have you ever struggled with making, let alone keeping, your newly made goals? In our first podcast of the New Year, we talk about what else...New Years resolutions. However, we will do it the Happy Life Studios way. We will talk about New Years resolutions from an angle I've never heard anyone else ever speak before. Some absolutely LOVE making New Years resolutions while others abhor them. Either way, this podcast is going to help, because without this piece, goals and resolutions will become rules to haunt us, or weights to weigh our happy down.

"Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened." ~ Dr. Seuss.
Funny thing is, it just seems like a few days ago I posted the first Happier Holidays episode this year talking about how I couldn't believe Christmas was already here. And now in this session I'm talking about it being over. Well, there are really 2 ways to end the Holiday season. Listen and find out what they are. This episode is really important, because believe it or not, how we end 2016 will strongly determine how we start 2017. Christmas is a powerful, magical time that we could most definitely use throughout the rest of the year.

Ah yes, the old ugly Christmas sweater. I'm not sure how they got invented, and I'm really not sure how they get worn. I mean, when one mentions "Christmas sweater", "ugly" is usually the first adjective that comes to mind. Although ugly Christmas sweaters are a great and fun way to help celebrate the Holidays, some are far more than just ugly. Listen as I talk about ugly covering up the true beauty of not only Christmas, but of us as well. Check out our Happier Holidays Video Collection at www.stevohays.com for a great offer from us to your family this Christmas.

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:


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

(You can download iTunes here.)
step 2:

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.


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.
