What is happiness and how do we find it?

First we need to understand that happiness is a journey and not an event. Every journey begins with understanding where we are and where we are going. Yet life doesn’t come with maps and GPS navigation. We find our path by cutting down the web of confusion created by not knowing what we truly want, by portraying a different image to the world than how we really are and by getting fixated on unimportant details.

Truth Seeking is about relentlessly cutting out the rubbish in life and only focusing on what is true and lasting. The bigger the gap, between how life is and how you think it should be, the more stressed or miserable you feel. Welcome to Wayfinding, the art of narrowing the gap.

“Pain and misery is the clashing of what life is, with what you think life should be”.

Rob McPhillips entered adulthood arrogant, greedy and hungry for money and power. By 21, Rob was £60,000 in debt, homeless, physically ill and miserable. Life had to change. He had to change. He, and his life, changed when he stopped seeking power and instead sought truth.

Three decades of truth seeking later, here are the psychological tweaks that, after being road tested on clients and over 2 million readers, seem to reduce stress and make for a happier and more meaningful life illustrated by 34 beautiful, timeless and poignant stories to provoke reflection and stimulate deeper insight.
