How to be uncomfortably happy

13/04/19 The Hoxton Amsterdam

Sometimes life can suck. Despite our best efforts, things go wrong and the world doesn’t meet our expectations. But can this discomfort lead to personal growth? Rather than limit our happiness, can it actually increase it?

This workshop will help you integrate techniques from Roman philosophers, Buddhist monks and Silicon Valley start-ups to reframe failure, disappointment and bad luck for the better. In this session, we will:

  • Explore how discomfort can unlock personal growth and greater satisfaction
  • Try practical exercises that identify how failure can aid rather than limit happiness
  • Build a mental toolkit to help you deal with setbacks and disappointments more productively
