Life Works When – A Story of Piecing Happiness Together for a Successful Life

A parable on the five pieces of happiness we need to understand and work to achieve to find happiness and success in life.

LIFE WORKS WHEN – A Story of Piecing Happiness Together for a Successful Life


After years of being asked, how do I find happiness, I finally bit the bullet and have summed up the 5 pieces of life’s puzzle, needed to find a sense of peace, contentment and joy, (which in my view is the definition of Happiness).

Beautiful illustrated by Carol Gray, who has brought humour and humanity to the characters in the book, this narrative takes the reader on a short journey of personal discovery.  Based on two decades of psychological experience, Life Works When is designed to remind you what is
important when we are chasing that dream of being happy, and how we can get lost trying to get there.

Fun, whimsical and real, if you follow and focus on mastering these 5 steps, you might just get to where you want to go.

Oh,  like in the movies, the end of the book maybe isn’t the end if you keep reading! We have added a surprise as a reminder how to laugh at ourselves, even when what we try to accomplish might be serious.

An inspirational read that takes us on a journey of life and the attainment of happiness. The use of a story to convey the themes and core messages is a brilliant idea that allowed me to remain engaged to the end. Mo’s perspective to life and how happiness is achieved is relatable. Happ’s viewpoint and actions, on the other hand, opened my mind to new ways to view unexpected occurrences and what happiness actually is as well as life in general.
