The Happiness Formula

Join us for our our latest interview with Mike Duffy on Living The Retirement Lifestyle Podcast. Mike is the Founder of The Happiness Hall of Fame and Happiness Wealth Management and was very entertaining throughout our chat with him and he left us with his Happiness Formula

Here’s what we asked Mike (2:23)

“We have read that one of the greatest threats to financial security in retirement is lack of income to take them through to the end of their years. Can you bring some “happiness” to this question?

Here’s what he had to say…

He begins his answer with “start when you’re younger to save and as you get older create a budget so you can clearly see your outgoings vs your incomings… you might have to get back to work but you can choose wheat you do – even leveraging all the skills and talents you’ve amassed during your career… thanks to the internet you can be your own entrepreneur

Do things that interest you

Mike has a great idea if you like people so listen in to what he has to say (it could be your next business!)

Don’t be afraid

He suggest you use these 3 powerful words that can change anyone’s life (5:33) What If I?

And went on to share his happiness formula

P + P = H

Purpose + Progress = Happiness

We continue with some great stories and Mike shared with us some of the people he’s had the honour to enrol into The Happiness Hall Of Fame – names you will definitely recognise such as Jeff Olson of The Slight Edge fame as well as Mark Victor Hansen (Chicken Soup For The Soul) and many famous sports personalities. Truly inspiring mission and vision for the world

Mike concluded our interview with his happiness wisdom

You are the author of the story of the rest of your life. Make that story one of great adventure, amazing giving, outrageous joy and sustainable happiness

Mike is the CEO of Happiness Wealth Management in San Carlos, California with 27 years experience in finance. He’s a philanthropist and an author of five books on happiness including: The Happiness Book: A Positive Guide To Happiness!The Happiness Book For Men, The Happiness Book For Kids Volumes I & II and The Happiness Book For Little Christians. He was an MC at Woodstock ’94. He gave a TEDx talk at TEDx Berkeley. He loves to speak about how you can gain greater happiness and joy in your precious life

His website sums up his view on happiness – “happiness is a universal pursuit, but it’s also a personal one. For some people, financial happiness is a life of adventure and travel. Some people’s definition of financial happiness is taking comfort in the fact that whatever life throws at them they are prepared. For others, it’s leaving a legacy through achievement and philanthropy
