72 Comments



You are watching The Book Club! Every Wednesday we handpick the best books to improve your life. Welcome to ALUX.com! The place where future billionaires come to get inspired. If you’re not subscribed yet, you’re missing out. Hello aluxers! We are so happy to welcome you to another incredible book club video. See what we did there?! Ok, nevermind. The keyword of today is happiness! That little state of being that we’re all looking for and few find it or better said create it. This is what all the books we’re going to provide you with today are all about. We’re not going to go too much into happiness because it’s different for everyone, and there will never be a set destination. Although, there are certain conditions you are required to fulfill, such as define your happiness, don’t overthink, stop caring what others think, pursue that goal and a bunch more and you can check out on our video 15 rules to live a happy life. With that said let’s finish up this intro and see which are the books on happiness. So let’s get started! His holiness, the Dalai Lama, goes deep into Buddhism and reveals what it truly means to live a happier life, seamlessly tying together the wisdom of Buddhism and western life. This is the go-to manual to see how Buddhist practices can increase your overall happiness, which covers how to train your mind to be happy, how to create a deeper bond with others through compassion, how to deal with suffering, overcome obstacles and the importance of living a spiritual life. This is an eye-opening book! But once every year or maybe every 2 years you need to back to it just to be sure the fundamentals have sunk it. We already got you covered on that front though’, if you go to alux.com/freebook, and sign up, our friends from audible will provide you with an audio version of the art of happiness for free! There are very few books like the four agreements, simple, yet so profound that will change your life in the blink of an eye. All the lessons, or rather, the agreements in this book are applicable to pretty much every aspect of life. We don’t want to divulge too much and ruin the experience, but we can attest to the powerful effect it’ll have on your life when you’ll start living by the four agreements. The author describes how a few small changes in your everyday life can have a tremendous effect on your level of happiness and life overall. The happiness project is an excellent gateway to start seeing your thoughts, your decisions, your life and your time through a whole new different lens. Behavioral science professor, Paul Dolan wrote this bold and original book as a means to help you influence your behavior and the behavior of others in order to improve well-being. Dolan argues that, if you really wish to discover a life that is full of pleasure and meaning, you only need to make informed decisions and deliberate choices without pondering too much on whether or not it will bring us the happiness you desire. Here’s an author that wants you to put as much energy into achieving happiness as much as you would put into achieving your financial goal, fitness goals and others that you have set up for yourself. Filled with practical exercises and techniques you can do every day to maximize your happiness level, Ricard thoughtfully recommends that you look ahead in life with a deep sense of reality and compassion. Touching on a wide array of sources; from Buddhism to science, to poetry, to personal experiences, the author says that the ones who are truly happy and aspire to bring happiness to a global scale, to end hatred, are usually the ones to do so. This book distinctly provides you with a comprehensive guide to understanding all the various elements of happiness based on decades of scientific research. The how of happiness will show you how we make a lot of errors in our expectations of what makes us happy, compared to what actually makes us happy, along with plenty of strategies and methods of thinking that you can start using right away. You’ll finally get a firm understanding of your intrinsic potential and how to bring it to the surface to live a greater, happier life. In his book, Jonathan Haidt explores the question of where happiness comes from. Haidt reveals that long term happiness comes from within you by cultivating an accepting attitude toward the unpredictable events around you. His writing is quite simple and easy to follow, it combines humanities with psychological science making this impactful book accessible to a wide audience. According to, Jelbert honesty is the first muscle that you have to strengthen if you want to be happy. You must be honest before you can be happy, honest with yourself and, honest, with those around you. The happiness animal is an honest roadmap, that describes how strengthening the 5 muscles of happiness and guide you to a better life. Flow represents a full state of immersion in the present condition that you’re experiencing. Based for the most part on cold hard science, but also with a touch of philosophy, this book lays down for you the happiness equation so you won’t struggle for the answer from now on. Guiding the flow of information that enters your consciousness is essential for you to find true happiness and significantly improve the quality of life. This is a book about meditation, in which the author, Dan Harris, relates his personal story of discovering medication and how it made him 10 percent happier, after experiencing a panic attack on live tv. He shares his journey to find peace and balance through the immense power of meditation, which will surely inspire you to try it for yourself if you haven’t already. Dan whole-heartedly believes that medication is the medicine that works for everyone and Aluxers, just to let you know we have our own meditation course, we call it Mind Mastery and you can access it by going to alux.com/meditation. It’s closed right now, but we’ll be opening the doors back up on black Friday for a discounted price, so get your name on the waiting list if it isn’t already. While most people would consider living a happy live an outcome of sheer luck, Seligman, describes happiness, as a process derived from focusing your potential and strengths instead of your weaknesses. Years of studying ancient philosophies and modern science made him realize that the key to happiness is something that we’ve known for thousands of years… virtue. Seligman also shares with you plenty of practical exercises, tests and the main benefits of a dynamic program that will teach you how to better understand your worthiness and use it in ways you’ve never thought of before. The lessons in this book revolve around studies in behavioral psychology, more specifically around acceptance and commitment therapy, a type of therapy focused on mindfulness. Harris employs scientifically proven strategies which will show you how to reduce any kind of stress, overcome self-doubt, handle negative feelings more effectively and generally create more meaning, more fulfillment, and satisfaction in your life. The author, Karen Salmansohn wrote or better said designed this book particularly for those people who don’t buy self-help books but need that ray of sunshine in their lives. How to be happy, is a mixture of biology, quantum physics, psychology, philosophy and the undying zen of bazooka joe, that is guaranteed to perk you up even if you’re a die-hard cynic. It’s packed with 44 lessons that will help you save you so many years of time and effort it’ll pretty much feel like a lifehack. Also, we have to mention, before we move on, that the book has some of the most stunning graphics and illustrations you’ve ever seen! For those of you who don’t know this little book, you’re missing out! Don’t sweat the small stuff has been around since 1961 so you know the value it brings to the table is real. Richard Carlson shares, in over 100 chapters his ideas for living a calmer, richer and happier life. Just to make a note here; If you know a friend or someone that constantly has something to complain about then you should gift them this book! It’ll change their perception on things and influence their life for the better. Best described as counterintuitive this book reveals the 9 secrets of happiness, and shows you that Mind bending, right?! The happiness equation mixes humor with wise practical advice and it emphasizes the fact that our choices, our decisions, we make on a daily basis, have a tremendous contribution to our overall happiness. So, the best way to solve our happiness equation is to make better, higher quality decisions, and choices for ourselves. Now, aluxers, we want to ask you a very important question: Please let us know in the comments and we’ll be right there with you. And, of course, for sticking with us this long you know you definitely get a bonus books. Here it is: Coming from 2 of the most prominent spiritual leaders in the world today, this book was envisioned as a 3 layer cake: the authors’ personal stories and teachings about joy, the most up to date findings in the science of happiness and the daily practices that anchor their own spiritual and emotional lives. You’d think that all the suffering they went through, would turn these 2 authors into miserable wrecks but that just isn’t the case. They overcame their struggles and banded together to answer the question that burns all of us: Thank you for spending some time with us Aluxer. Make sure to subscribe so you never miss a video!
