How to Raise Your Happiness Level

This is NOT a children’s book.

Excerpt: Many years ago I saw a drawing of an elephant with 5 men who were all blindfolded. Each of the blindfolded men were experiencing the elephant in a different way.Book Cover

  • One was sitting on top of it.
  • Another was holding the elephant’s tail. 
  • One was holding the elephant’s trunk,
  • while another was hugging the elephant’s leg. 
  • And the 5th was grasping the elephant’s ear.

5 blindfolded men with elephant

I don’t recall whether or not there was a caption that went along with the drawing, but I was strongly impacted by the message it conveyed. It was obvious that each of those men, if asked to describe the elephant, would have completely different opinions.
