The Happiness Compass was born out of the idea to instigate a more proactive approach to health and happiness.
Our mission is to give everyone the tools to be happier and more fulfilled by creating programs and initiatives that teach people skills around emotional intelligence, positive psychology, mindfulness, resilience and physical well-being.
Our vision centres around the approach that we should do more and be more. We should ask and embody the questions: How do we make an impact today? How do we challenge established ways of doing business? How are we improving the lives of others in meaningful ways? How do we create a positive and lasting legacy?
The Happiness Compass wants to help people answer these questions and more on a daily basis. Positive change will only come from those who collaboratively, passionately and boldly pursue their dreams for a better tomorrow. We’re committed to making a difference.
The following is the first interview in our new series called Free Thinkers. Here we celebrate those creative and inspired minds who are doing more and being more, challenging established ways of thinking, making an impact today and improving the lives of others in meaningful ways. Meet Fern Taylor, Free Thinker and author and illustrator of Here and Now, An Interactive Mindfulness Book,
This sort of thinking negates us from the personal responsibility of being the best version of ourselves we can be. It directs us to someone else to drape ourselves over and use as a crutch, rather than learning to exercise our muscles so we are strong enough to stand on our own. It leaves us in an eternal hamster wheel, searching and searching, getting nowhere.
If we can use this tool and take it with us every day our lives will be more enriching, our relationships more fulfilling and our moments more gratifying. We can learn to enjoy the lake of life in each and every moment with the understanding that it may dry up and be gone at any moment.
"It is not necessary to accept the choices handed down to you by life as you know it. There is more to it than that— no one HAS to do something he doesn’t want to do for the rest of his life. But then again, if that’s what you wind up doing, by all means convince yourself that you HAD to do it. You’ll have lots of company." Hunter S. Thompson
