UPDATE: THE PRICE OF THE COURSE MENTIONED IN THIS POST HAS INCREASED BY 200%. I NO LONGER RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT
What do the most successful people do differently?
Why are some people able to bounce back from failure?
What allows some couples to stay happily together for many decades?
What do very happy people do differently?
These are the questions asked by the science of positive psychology.
Through the efforts of hundreds of scientists conducting thousands of experiments, case studies and analyses we’ve started getting answers – insights into how we can become happier.
Happier Human was created to make those insights accessible. So that you can improve your life and the lives of others.
Most of what I produce is free, but at the end of the day I’ve got to be able to eat and pay rent.
Will You Purchase My Questionable Advice?
In return for a fee, I’ve been asked to promote dozens of courses and eBooks.
I’ve refused them all.
Not because I like being poor. My monthly income is 10% of what it used to be.
I’d like to be making more money. I’d like to be able to receive thousands of dollars a month in advertising fees.
But that would require I lower my standards.
Not going to happen.
The entire reason I switched careers is because I want to be able to help you. I can’t do that by selling you bad advice and wasting your time.
I’m okay with being poor for a few years.
But last week I was introduced to Manuel Kraus, founder of The Good Life Foundation and a graduate of Martin Seligman’s Master of Applied Positive Psychology program.
I almost had an orgasm.
Not because I turned bisexual and met the man of my dreams (although Manuel is awesome).
I almost had an orgasm because Manuel has done such an amazing job.
Positive Psychology – The Science of Happiness and Success
Like me, he wants to make the insights of positive psychology accessible.
You can read hundreds of books and research papers, or you can watch his video course.
It’s the best of positive psychology that I’ve ever seen.
It isn’t as thrilling as a Tony Robins seminar. If you want advice that’s easy and exciting, look elsewhere.
But if you’re looking for the cutting edge of scientific self-help, this course is for you.
Improving the quality of your relationships, learning how to regulate your emotions, increasing your motivation, shattering the myths of happiness – the course contains all the best exercises and advice.

I spent an average of $1,315 for each course I took in college. If NYU had offered his course, I would have taken it. Even paying $1,315, it would have been worth it to me.
