內容簡介

快樂是每個人都想獲得,你知道方法是甚麼嗎?只有一個途徑:付出。
那麼付出的方式是甚麼呢?

透過美國藝人歌蒂韓、諾貝爾和平獎獲得者穆罕默德•尤努斯、美國名模克莉絲蒂•杜靈頓、暢銷作家伊莎貝爾•阿言德、肌肉萎縮症患者Augie Nieto等來自世界各地、背景迥異者,親述自身故事,分享他們在面對生活挫折時,讓自己感到快樂與滿足的方式,展示他們改變自己甚至也改變世界的力量──充滿生命力,鼓舞人心。

我們往往以為「禮物」是要給予有需要的人,作者顛覆傳統思維,告訴讀者,讓自己生活得更快樂,找到自己生活目標,是另一種禮物,唯有自己發自內心感受幸福,才有能量幫助其他人。本書提出了幾個關鍵:

●印證佛教的「利他」所獲得的快樂遠遠勝過利己。
●教導如何支持正在逆境或悲傷的朋友。
●意外發現那些給予最多的人,未必生活最順遂,但卻是幸福滿足的族群。
●提供切實可行的方式,讓你在付出中找到自我。

扭轉你對幸福的定義,改變你做人的方式,換位思考,從關注自身轉移到一個互惠互利的行為,有見地的內容,讓自己能夠利人利己。

We often focus on how our gifts can help those in need. But the act of giving actually improves our own lives as well. In The Giving Way to Happiness, Jenny Santi overturns conventional thinking about what it takes to be happy by revealing how giving to others whether in the form of money, expertise, time, or love has helped people from all walks of life find purpose and joy. Drawing on the wisdom of great thinkers past and present, as well as cutting-edge scientific research, Santi makes an eloquent and passionate case that oftentimes the answers to the problems that haunt us, and the key to the happiness that eludes us, lie in helping those around us.

This book is filled with inspiring stories told firsthand by Academy Award winner Goldie Hawn, Noble Peace Prize winner Muhammad Yunus, supermodel Christy Turlington Burns, Teach for America founder Wendy Kopp, philanthropist Richard Rockefeller, environmentalist Philippe Cousteau, activist Ric O Barry, bestselling author Isabel Allende, ALS survivor Augie Nieto, and many others from all over the world. Despite their diverse backgrounds, they have all found unexpected happiness and fulfillment through giving. This book tells us not just how they changed the world but also how their acts changed their very own lives.

In addition, Santi reveals:

- How altruism involves far more than suppressing basic selfish urges. Rather, we are wired to give, as it activates the same pleasure centers of the brain stimulated by food, sex, and drugs

- How helping others whether by walking a friend through a struggle that you ve also experienced or by supporting a cause to honor a loved one s memory can be a healthy way to deal with adversity and process grief

- The unexpected reasons why those who gave it all up to make a difference, and who face the direst situations, are nevertheless some of the happiest, most fulfilled, and least angst-ridden people you ll ever meet.

- Practical, universally applicable lessons on what kind of giving makes people happy and what doesn t. How do you discover giving that is unique to you and makes you feel good?

In this inspiring book, Santi turns conventional wisdom upside down about what it takes to be happy and reveals the surprising reasons that have led so many people to live lives full of meaning, purpose and happiness
