Psych Central


I’m doing a short series of very brief audio recordings about the all-too-common belief that it is WRONG to be happy.

A shocking number of people, in my experience, subconsciously believe that more happiness – or any happiness at all – would be wrong for them.

They back it up with behaviors and tendencies that unwittingly block happiness, keep it at arms length or completely sabotage it.

I’ve identified 10 common indicators that you might believe that happiness is just not for you. The audio below reveals the first two signs. Future audios will discuss signs 3-10.

You can play the audio right in this post. Hit the play button and make sure your speakers are on…!

These ideas above come from our free video – the AHA Solution, which discusses the psychological attachments that cause self-sabotage and create the opposite of what we want in life. Watch it here.
