This book on happiness is based on the story of a young man named Jerry. The day after his high school prom, Jerry woke up with swollen ankles the size of baseballs. Thinking that his ankles were sprained, Jerry went to the hospital to get treatment.
Instead, what he learned that day would change his life forever.
At the age of 17, Jerry was diagnosed with Nephrotic Syndrome. Both his kidneys were diseased.
There is no cure for Nephrotic Syndrome.
Mr. Wang shares 10 secrets to a happier you based on Jerry's story. Each chapter in the book includes;
- A quote about happiness
- Jerry's life story
- A secret to discovering happiness
- Exercises to help you condition yourself to become happiness
This is a short read that will inspire and motivate you to count your blessings and change your attitude. The very first "secret" in this story is "Be Thankful for What You Have". How many times do we have to be reminded that the key to true happiness is a grateful heart?
I found the story of Jerry's struggle with kidney disease very inspiring. The simple illustrations are delightful and the advice is right on target.
I found chapter #7, "Give To Receive", the most inspiring part of the book. Jerry's mother received a letter from the hospital saying that Jerry had been placed on a kidney transplant list. She knew that if they didn't find a donor soon, her son would probably not make it.
That same night, Jerry's mother went to the gym to run on the treadmill. This was her personal way of coping...running. She was on the treadmill and she started to cry. Then a miracle happened. You MUST read the book to find out what happened.
We really can find the happiness that already lies within us. This book is a real winner!
