    The greatest achievements in human history have been attained by those individuals who strive to elevate themselves above the everyday ebb and flow of life. This yearning to achieve is central to our search for happiness. We want to laugh, to sing, and to feel good at the end of the day as much as we might wish to do anything else. Happiness is an art. If you wish to practice this art, you must first decide that it is something that you want, above everything else. People that choose to be happy will at some point wake up to a day filled with smiles, joy, and laughter. If they are lucky, they will remember that day, focus on its high points, and strive to repeat it. Before too long, another happy day will appear, seemingly out of the blue. People around them will wonder why they seem to be so different. The reason will not be found in surface changes. The "Nine Insights For a Happy and Successful Life" emerged from author Mitchell Earl Gibson's own life long desire to help thousands of people find happiness. Happiness is a gift that we bestow upon ourselves each time that we embrace the joy that breathes within. This book outlines two main themes that will guide you on the road to happiness.

    "The Imprint Journey" is like two books in one. The first section is Liliane Desjardins’ personal story of growing up during World War II in Croatia, watching the Catholic Church bless German soldiers, and seeing Nazis take her father away to a concentration camp.

After marrying and becoming an alcoholic herself, her near death resulted in her transformation and recovery. The second section of "The Imprint Journey" is a dissection of just what an imprint is, and how to overcome imprints and replace them with effective and productive, life-affirming thought-patterns.
