How To Be Happy: Five Mantras From Deepak Chopra's 'Self Power'

Why is it important to be happy? Well, happiness not only helps you enjoy and appreciate life, but it also helps you succeed in your personal life and at work.

Although it's important to balance your life in terms of work and fun, it is proven that happiness is the only aspect in our lives with any ultimate value and our view (both as individuals and as a global community) is that happiness is our conclusive reason for living.

For those who don't know who Deepak Chopra is (and if so, where have you been?!), he's one of the world leaders in spirituality and happiness. His beliefs have inspired millions of people to change their lives for the better.

His latest book 'Self Power' explores the power source within and aims to help readers overcome challenges. Whether work concerns, relationship issues or health problems, Chopra covers these problems with spiritual solutions.

Chopra's book echoes the ground-breaking Third Metric initiative, which aims to renounce archaic ways of measuring success (power and money) and move towards a more wholesome metric.

Arianna Huffington believes that success should also be measured on account of our wellbeing, wisdom and ability to make a difference in the world.
