Product Description

  • Resisting Happiness
  • New York Times bestselling author Matthew Kelly
  • Profound and practical advice
  • Learn how we mess things up for ourselves, and how not to!


A true story about why we sabotage ourselves, feel overwhelmed, set aside our dreams, and lack the courage to simply be ourselves... and how to start choosing happiness again!

Are you happy? It may be the wrong question. Most of us think we are relatively happy, while at the same time knowing that we could be happier -- maybe even a lot happier. Ordinary people and the finest philosophers have been exploring the question of happiness for thousands of years, and theories abound. But this is not a book of theory. Resisting Happiness is a deeply personal, disarmingly transparent look at why we sabotage our own happiness and what to do about it.

Are you overwhelmed? Do you procrastinate? Do you sometimes feel like you are your own worst enemy? Are you ignoring your dreams? Have you lost the courage to truly be yourself? Do you feel that your life lacks meaning and purpose? Do you find yourself avoiding the real issues in your life and focusing on the superficial?

We all experience these feelings and doubts from time to time. But do you know what to do when you experience them? In this fascinating book, Matthew Kelly, uses his signature combination of the profound and the practical, to help us understand why we feel these things and how to rise above them.
Breaking through resistance, Kelly tells us, is essential to becoming the-best-version-of-ourselves and living with passion and purpose.

What is resistance? It's that sluggish feeling of not wanting to do something that you know is good for you. It's the inclination to do something that you unabashedly know is not good for you. It's the desire and tendency to delay something you should be doing right now.

It is resistance that stands between you and happiness. In these pages you will learn not only what it is, but how to recognize and conquer it in your own life.

Sounds contradictory...

Review: but this book shows that the way to genuine happiness is to simply be ourselves. Everything will then fall into place.

Resisting Happiness

Review: I am halfway w/ this book, but Matthew has done it again: book is awesome and worth the time to read and RE-read! His main message is the thought that had permeated my brain: placing GOD in the CENTER of our life. How vital is that??!! Very easy to read; chapters are short, and his messages at end of each chapter reinforces its topic and gets you thinking!
