Happiness Journey with Dr Dan: Where every journey is worth living.

By Dr Dan Amzallag, PhD
Life is challenging, no doubt about that. Stress may keep you anxious and with time, it can take its toll on you. Many can struggle when dealing with these uncertainties, and it can be hard to have someone encouraging you and help you keep moving forward. My many inspiring guests and their stories will uplift you, bring back the love for life and provide you with key insights on how to manage your difficult challenges. Stay motivated by those who made it happen and changed their own life by taking affirmative action and start living their lives mindfully. Happiness is from within.

Happiness journey with Dr Dan podcast: Season 13 Ep1: : Special Guest and author, Rabbi David Green
For over 30 years David has been teaching topics such individuality and soul awareness.  He has helped his students deal with issues such as loneliness, self-esteem, inner awareness, making major life choices, how to find your soulmate, and more. ​ David spent time in the Hollywood music business as a songwriter at the young age of 16. He then studied music composition and Indiana U in Bloomington. After a lot of questioning, he went to Israel to find himself and a more soulful expression of his music. He found both by learning an array of topics about spiritual growth. Years later he received his rabbinical ordination while studying at the Mir yeshiva. David wrote his first book, A Book about You, which helps people find their individuality and soul awareness.  Everyone has a different personality and meaningful path to to achieve greatness in this world. Meanwhile, he wrote an album called Journey to the Real You. The songs and lyrics are woven throughout my first book with QR codes connecting the reader to the songs being quoted. A big part of knowing who you are is knowing what you are. By knowing that the soul is the most essential part of who you are, it will contribute to the “journey to the real you.”  David's new book, “Pictures of your soul” takes you back to that basic question and explores the beauty of your soul and how to grow, even from a very low place, should someone be struggling with their spiritual awareness and identity. As an artist, David has also spent time in the film industry. He won a CableACE award, the Cannes Film Festival for Deadly Currents and the Health and Medical film festival for a movie starring Martin Short which was distributed by Disney. For his livelihood, David invents and patent technology. Living in Israel, he is happily married with 8 kids and 16 grandchildren.

Happiness journey with Dr Dan podcast: Season 12 Ep 5: Special Guest and happiness mentor Karyn Seitz
As a former spiritual healer, Karyn realized her clients were not getting better. She was frustrated that she could not deliver the results her clients wanted even though she was trying lots of different healing modalities and coaching techniques. Karyn knew she also wasn’t getting the changes she wanted in her life. She secretly lacked any confidence in her ability to change. Her adult life had stalled. In a fresh new search for answers, Karyn found the missing piece that would ultimately transform her life and her clients. There is something very profound in owning that she is the problem in her life. This awareness pushed her to confront herself and get serious about herself and her life. Karyn is now fulfilled in her life and teaches others the same journey she has taken to find herself and be happy. Karyn calls herself The Happiness Mentor and teaches an online happiness course for women called Awakened Grace. website: Email: #drdanamzallag, #drdanpodcast, #Happinessjourneywithdrdan, #ddanmotivation, #inspiringinterviews, #drdancbt, #drdantherapy, #drdancoaching, #drdanhappiness, #karynseitz,

Happiness journey with Dr Dan podcast: Season 12 Ep1: : Special Guest and mental health advocate Robert Graves
A successful white-collar professional by day working as a project manager for a large University Health System, Robert is an openly gay man living in Buffalo,  NY.  Robert’s first diagnosis, chronic clinical depression, came when he was 16, even though he had been battling depression since the age of nine when he had his first episode of self-harm ideology. As he was coming out, his depression morphed into bipolar depression disorder, which went untreated and undiagnosed until he was 44.  The untreated mania manifested as an anonymous sex addiction that lasted over 20 years, enduring through the height of the HIV/AIDS epidemic. Only after finally addressing his sex addiction with his therapist did his bipolar disorder come to light, and his treatment with pharmacology help him end his addiction.  With the help of ongoing therapy and careful medication management, Robert has evolved to lead a relatively quiet life in his forties, where he enjoys boating, gardening, and volunteering in the community with various organizations such as the Alzheimer’s Association.  He also has a cat named Bacchus and a French bulldog named Lily. Through his many years of therapy, he learned to forgive others and accept his family and friends for who they are.  Now he has turned the focus inward, forgiving himself for the reckless decisions through all those years and finally accepting himself as he is: a successful, healthy, gay man living with bipolar depression. #drdanamzallag, #drdanpodcast, #Happinessjourneywithdrdan, #ddanmotivation, #inspiringinterviews, #drdancbt, #drdantherapy, #drdancoaching, #drdanhappiness, #robertgraves, #mentalhealthadvocate,

Barry Braun is the founder of Happy Community Builders. After 25 years of entrepreneurial coaching, he was reflecting on his grandchildren’s future and wanted to do something about it. He committed the rest of his life creating happier communities where his grandchildren will be able to find the support they will need. He discovered that communities are struggling and yet they are fundamental to our happiness. Barry committed himself to using his business and coaching skills to create communities that are more socially connected, belonging and caring. He created Happy Community Builders. The purpose of Happy Community Builders is to be a ‘sandbox’ where community builders play with ideas, co-create and find new ways of thinking. They can celebrate our successes, draw on each other's expertise, and share resources. It enables us to go beyond reactive behavior so we can envision new possibilities for community’s place in our society. Happy Community Builders is a springboard to collaborate. It enables us to “scale up” our impacts that we could not achieve alone. We can co-create new ways of building inclusive, connected, belonging and caring communities.

Happiness journey with Dr Dan podcast: Season 9 Ep8: Special guest and Marriage/ Family Therapist Chao Zhao
Do relationship experts, mental health providers, or therapists struggle in their dating life? Have they been in toxic relationships? Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month, we wanted to share with you whether an Asian mental health provider struggles with her dating life, how she sees herself in dating, and how she grows. Chao Zhao is a bilingual Marriage and Family Therapist Associate, with a Clinical Art Therapist specialization, and has a focus on working with Asian and people from multi-cultural backgrounds to develop healthier relationships. She believes “art is a universal language, can help you promote freedom in expression, feel heard and seen, and be utilized by anyone in need.” Her own experience coming to the US to pursue her career transition, finding herself, struggling with toxic relationships, and becoming a mental health therapist will provide you with some new insight into your relationship and life in general. What are the practical 5 step self-check tips for us to apply to our relationships when we are in doubt? Education: learn about what is      a toxic relationship? What are the signs you have seen that mean to you? Knowing who you are: your core      values, and who you want to be? Connect your inner strength:      Understand your cultural background and your childhood experience. Self-compassion: setting a      clear boundary starts with knowing yourself. Prevention: finding your own      peace and not triggering any unhealthy response through regular      journaling, meditation, or yoga practice. She is inspired by this quote from the Chinese philosopher Lao Tzu to encourage us to find ourselves–our inner strengths, “Knowing others is intelligence; Knowing yourself is true wisdom. Mastering others is strength; Mastering yourself is true power.” Learn more at or Instagram @CHAOZHAOTHERAPY. #drdanamzallag, #drdanpodcast, #Happinessjourneywithdrdan, #ddanmotivation, #inspiringinterviews, #drdancbt, #drdantherapy, #drdancoaching, #drdanhappiness, #chaozhao, #familytherapy, #toxicrelationship

Happiness journey with Dr Dan podcast: Season 9 Ep5: Special guest Dr Doug Garland
Dr. Doug Garland practiced orthopedic surgery in Southern California for 37 years. He is a Clinical Professor of Orthopedic Surgery at the University of Southern California and published more than 110 peer-reviewed scientific articles. After experiencing the tall poppy syndrome (TPS) firsthand, Dr. Garland began a 10-year journey researching TPS. This exploration began in Ancient Greece, where the syndrome was first described, to modern times and involved various countries, customs, and cultures. Specific emphasis was directed towards Australia where TPS is a cultural pastime. To his surprise, it was recognized everywhere in one form or another except in America. After studying America's emotional-cultural behavior, Dr. Garland concluded that TPS was prominent in America, perhaps more so than in any other country, but it is unrecognized. Emotional behaviors of the cutter and cutter were identified. The result was the definitive tome, "The Tall Poppy Syndrome - The Joy of Cutting Others Down" with more than 600 citations which is available on Amazon.

When Ann was 19, she woke one morning to find her mother dead in her bathroom. Twenty years later the tears from that trauma were still just under the surface.

Ann has found that seeking out our truth, what we truly feel, and accepting those feelings, is the key to inner peace.

Happiness journey with Dr Dan podcast: Season 8 Ep8: Special guest Mark Resnick
Mark Resnick is an entrepreneur, husband, father, coach, and author. His book, Ten Days With Dad: Finding Purpose, Passion & Peace During the Darkest Days of Alzheimer’s and COVID-19, was published in March and is available on Amazon. Mark  has wanted to be a writer since the fifth grade, when Mrs. Blake, his  English teacher, encouraged him to consider writing outside  the confines of her classroom. Growing  up in Norwell, Massachusetts wasn’t special, but sharing a house with  his dad and two brothers was. Most of  the time they didn’t know what we were doing, both literally and  figuratively, but found their roles and fulfilled them the best they  could. Mark has remained true to his middle child mold ever since, which  has served him well more often than not. In 2014, his father was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. Within  four years of his diagnosis, his dad could no longer drive, cook, or  take his medications. When the dementia demons took over, he  couldn’t stay in his home, either. His  dad spent ten unforgettable days with Mark’s family prior to moving  into assisted living, and eventually  a nursing home. Over the course of eighteen months, they shared more  than 200 meals and 600 cups of coffee, during which time, Mark got to  know his dad—and himself—better than at any point in their lives. During the darkest days of COVID-19 and Alzheimer’s, his dad’s memory, dignity, and, ultimately, his life were stolen from him, and yet, Mark found his purpose, passion, and peace in his life. Ten Days with Dad is a story about family, progress, personal growth, and healing, born  out of a terrible disease and a once-in-a-century global pandemic. A promotional branding expert by day and writer in the evening, Mark’s other passions include baking, fishing, and visiting  Maui with his family. To connect with Mark, visit  His book is available on Amazon here: Mark  currently lives in MA with Coleen, his wife of 25 years. They are in  the throes of putting their kids through college  and high school. From Richmond to Fairfield, and locally to Xaverian  Brothers HS, they bounce back and forth, offering counsel as needed,  encouragement when allowed, and nourishment–which is always  enthusiastically accepted!

Happiness journey with Dr Dan podcast: Season 7 Ep4: Special guest Naailah Auladin
Naailah Auladin is a Carnal Revivalist. She specializes in human sexuality and its relationship to an overall holistic life balance. We understand the importance of a good night's sleep, a balanced diet and an exercise routine have on our energy level, our emotions and physical form. Our sexuality is also connected and influences us in similar ways, yet we often neglect to include this topic in our self care. Naailah brings back the awareness on the topic. Her aim is to bridge the gap between sexual taboos and the over sexualization. Her work is centered on teaching individuals about having a balanced sexuality which is linked directly and indirectly to our emotional intelligence, our ability to change, our ability to create healthy boundaries in both a sexual and non sexual context, amongst others. Hence the concept of a sexuality as part of a holistic life balance. Naailah's work focuses on the three main aspects of our sexuality, energy, psychology/emotions and physical form. Naailah works with both men and women one on one and/or ingroup settings depending of the type of work required.

Happiness journey with Dr Dan podcast: Season 6 Ep9: Special guest and podcaster Laura Christine
Laura Christine (LC) had such an empowering journey through leaving a toxic marriage that she created her own podcast--The Boundless Heart--to teach women how to set boundaries, claim their power, and create equal partnerships. Not recognizing the red flags, she got married and succumbed to the wants of her husband, abandoning her own desires and even values. Thinking that she could "make him see" how wonderful life could be, she stayed in her toxic, emotionally manipulative marriage until one day she woke up to a strong realization. She finally understood that she deserved better treatment, and that no matter how much she worked on herself and tried to "show him" a better way, things were never going to change. It was time to leave. It was scary, she wasn't ready, she didn't know what life would look like after leaving -- but she took the leap. Now LC is the happiest she has ever been, and she has turned her experience into a guiding force for all women to put themselves, their pleasure, and their values first. This is how we change the world! #drdanamzallag, #drdanpodcast, #Happinessjourneywithdrdan, #ddanmotivation, #inspiringinterviews, #drdancbt, #drdantherapy, #drdancoaching, #drdanhappiness, #laurachristine, #podcaster, #boundlessheart

Happiness journey with Dr Dan podcast: Season 5 Ep10: Special guest and sailor Paul Trammell
In 2015, I quit drinking, and  my life began changing dramatically and rapidly, all for the better. I  wrote my first book about my experience getting sober, and the methods I  developed in order to do so. This book is  "Alcoholics Not Anonymous." While seeking out substitutes  for alcohol, I rediscovered my love for adventure. I began devouring  sailing nonfiction books. I used the money I saved from my first year of  not drinking to buy a week-long sailing class  . I bought my first sailboat later that year, Sobrius, in St Petersburg, FL, and sailed her alone to the Dry Tortugas, then  Miami, and finally to St Augustine. The trip covered 1000 miles and was  an adventure that I will  never be able to repeat. I wrote about this experience, in my second  book, "Becoming a Sailor." ​ In 2018, I sailed alone to The  Bahamas and spent 2 months exploring the islands and searching for  adventure. I found more than I bargained for, and wrote about this in my  third book, "Journey to the Ragged Islands." ​ In the summer of 2019, I sold  my house, quit my job, gave away or sold all my belongings, and bought a  bigger boat, a 1972 Cartwright 40, Windflower. I bought her in  Massachusetts, worked on her for three months, then sailed her to The  Bahamas, solo. I arrived on New Year's Day and spent four months in The  Bahamas. I wrote about this experience in my book  "Chasing the Nomadic Dream." I've since written two novels, "Dead  Flowers on Wednesday" and "The Gold Box," and a sequel to my first book,  called "The Joy of Living Clean and Sober." ​ My happiness journey started  with the realization that something was missing in my life. Through much  introspection, I determined that I needed to chase the dream of being a  nomadic sailor. I designed a plan to make  this happen, and took the steps in the plan. This is my dream, and I am  living it. All his books can be found on amazon and his website paultrammell dot com

Happiness journey with Dr Dan podcast: Season 4 Ep 7: Special guest Lisa Paglia
If you've ever lived with or cared for someone with Alzheimer's disease or related dementia, you know the tragic consequences that lie in wait. Understanding what it is truly like for a person to live with brain disease and having the specialized knowledge to navigate the many unpredictable situations that surface on a day to day basis is the first step to coping and managing it for loved-ones and caregivers. It is very possible for people who suffer from brain disease to live meaningful, fulfilled lives with the help of those who are prepared for it. As a society, there is another worldwide crisis that is looming in the near future that will catch us all off guard if we don't plan for it now. The number of people who will develop Alzheimer's disease is projected to double, not only in the United States, but worldwide, in the next few decades if a cure is not found, according to the Alzheimer's Association and the World Health Organization. Currently, the cost of caring for someone with Alzheimer's disease/dementia is not only prohibitively expensive, but very difficult. Many families cannot afford professional care or cannot help care for their loved ones, and these challenges are only bound to get worse, just based on the sheer number of people who will develop it. We need to be proactive vs. reactive in finding solutions to the challenges we face with this disease, as well as be proactive in lowering our risk of developing Alzheimer's disease by implementing lifestyle changes now. Lisa Paglia is filled with incredible information ready to share it and bring awareness to this growing medical illness that won’t disappear if the medical society doesn’t start putting some sound investment in research and development of cures. If anyone of your family is suffering from Alzheimer or any other brain diseases, this is a podcast you don’t want to miss

Happiness journey with Dr Dan podcast: Season 4 Ep 5: Special guest, author and movie producer John Callas
John Callas is a veteran director/writer/producer in the entertainment industry. He began life losing his father at three triggering his anger, depression and anxiety. By twelve he was sent to military school due to extreme behavior issues. This added abandonment to the already problematic issues he was facing. By high school it go to the point where he attempted suicide to stop the pain. Realizing this was not the way he wanted his life he decided to seek help through therapy and mentors. The first thing he looked at was that oddly enough his depression was a safe haven. Lonely, dark and unsustainable but safe from the outside world. Again he made the choice to find a way out of the rabbit hole. Not knowing how to heal he accepted help from others and therapy. It was in therapy he discovered that others suffered like he did and that he wasn't unique in his pain. Making the decision to heal and have a healthy and loving life began a long journey of baby steps leading him to a successful career in the entertainment business in Hollywood. Some of his work is iconic. His confidence began to grow until he became the person he imagined himself to be. While he acknowledges that at times depression slips back in, the difference is that he controls it and it doesn't control him. His process is to allow himself to look at what is bothering him, find a solution and move on. It isn't always easy but with perseverance he always wins. He decided he wanted to help others so he wrote "When The Rain Stops," his memoir (on Amazon) of his beginning (depression) and how he managed to have a happy and successful life. He wants to help others find their way by his example. Once you've read his book, he is open to being contacted to chat about your process and if he can be a light in the darkness for you.

Happiness journey with Dr Dan podcast: Season 3 Ep 8: Special guest Nischa Phair
Coming from an abusive relationship, Nischa found herself into understanding the many aspects of what a healthy relationship is all about. When I say healthy, that includes also the sexual aspect of it. Sexual dysfunction is prominent in our society. Erectile issues with men and women unable to orgasm because of emotional tension blurring their minds 24/7. It is becoming harder for people to perform in bed because of social media sharing how men or women should look like physically. Now with the addition of pornography, men idealize women to look like the women they see on the sites, expecting perfection from their significant other. This constant idealization creates a disconnect between couples, where women feel m ore insecure about themselves and men unable to perform in the bedroom. This vicious cycle keeps on turning and turning with no end in sight. Nischa Phair provides interesting insight on how she helps her clients overcome these feelings of insecurities through different strategies that most can adopt and feel more connected with their partners. Most important strategy to start experiencing changes is to work on your addiction and seek the help of a therapist to address the problems you face daily. This in itself will allow breaking the link so that vicious cycle can be interrupted. If you start with this, you can experience incredible changes in your life and your relationship

Happiness journey with Dr Dan podcast: Season 3 Ep 7: Special guest Maria Riegger
How can a young child cope with a narcissistic parent and still thrive? Well, this podcast will show you how. Maria Riegger is the poster child dealing with post traumatic challenges that allowed her to become a better parent to her own child. Becoming a better parent doesn’t mean being lenient and allowing your child to do whatever they want but allowing them to make decision on their own and assuming responsibilities for their outcome. Narcissism is challenging, especially when you are in a relationship with one. There is no way to reason with one. They will do everything in their power to destroy you, bring you down, gaslight you, force you to detach from friends that they can’t control, separate you from your family and the list goes on and on. Focusing on yourself, getting friends, make your own money is what takes away the power of a narcissistic person to lose control over you. As Mari mentioned, observe but do not absorb. You have to observe their behavior to properly take action but do not emotionally absorb the abuse and allow it to hurt you. Many other strategies are offered in this podcast. Definitely a good way to start when dealing with a narcissistic person

Happiness journey with Dr Dan podcast: Season 3 Episode 6: Special guest and internal conflict resolution Expert: Faye Lawand
As an internal conflict resolution expert, Faye Lawand provides tools to work on yourself and deal with past traumatic events that hindered your progress and happiness for several years. Understanding how the minds work, specifically the subconscious mind, we tend to work on relying too much of what is going on around us instead of within us. Bringing back old memories of issues that have not been resolved, we drag the past into the present and forget to be mindful. Understanding that we can’t fix the past but only face the unresolved issues, we fail to work on ourselves and tend to blame everything and everybody else for our pitfalls. Faye provides amazing insights on how to avoid falling in the same trap as many others out there. She lived through many challenges herself leaving her country of Lebanon and avoids the many dangers of an unstable country, filled with conflict and war. She certainly practices what she preaches and I am so glad to have had her in my podcast. If you really want to understand why things do not happen in your life and find your path to happiness, listen to this podcast and get to be inspired by amazing people who have gone through many difficult challenges in life. Faye resides in Auckland, New Zealand

Happiness Journey with Dr Dan podcast: Season 3 Ep 4: Special Guest and author: Mr Hollywood Capone
Mr. Hollywood Capone experience tremendous loss in his lifetime with his sister and his best friend. The latter enticed him to write a book about him and share his grievance with the world. In his first book, Mr Hollywood was able to combine both fiction and non-fiction genre by sharing his heart wrenching story of losing a friend that he considered like a brother.  After publication, he jumped into writing his second book while still integrating a character that was on the first book. Mr Hollywood realized how taking things for granted, as many of us do, can be destructive and filled with regrets when loss occurs. Despite our busy schedule, we should always take some time to call a loved one and express our gratitude towards them, or how much we miss them or love them. If you fail to do so, you will experience a life long regret for not taking those 5 minutes of your schedule to make that call or visit. Life is filled with regrets as it is, so why add more on things that we can control.  I agree that life’s responsibility can be daunting at times, but the effort you put into reaching out to others can make someone’s life better and happier. Why not take that time to make such a positive change? Mr Hollywood shares his own life’s experience in this podcast. For anyone who is going through a loss, this is a podcast you don’t want to miss, especially when the holidays are approaching. Happy Holidays to all my thousands of listeners and Happy New Year. See you all in 2022

Jayne Sanders will blow your mind about how scientific hand analysis can help you find your true purpose in life. Now, I want to make sure that you don’t mix hand analysis with palm reading, which is completely different science, if you can call palm reading a science.

Regardless of the success she encountered in her career, she felt something was missing. After the many burnouts due to work overload, she knew there was something more to life than what she was doing on a day to day basis. After the loss of her parents, she decided to take action and study that science for a period of 5 years, which followed 3 coaching certifications, including Laws of Attraction and spiritual coaching.

Happiness Journey Podcast with Dr Dan: Season 2 Episode 6: Special guest and author: Dorothea Gordon
For many, metaphysical sciences are just focus on the spirits and psychics/mediums that connects with spirits. Lack of knowledge in that field makes that person more ignorant than curious.

Happiness journey with Dr Dan podcast: Season 2, Episode 1: Special Guest and life coach: Susan de Lorenzo
Having to deal with breast cancer and mastectomy is one thing, but add a failed marriage to the mix with a 18 months old baby is definitely icing on the cake. Chemotherapy, radiation, treatment, surgeries after surgeries, it never ends. Susan felt it was a challenge she never expected to happen but it did. Life threw her hardballs but she figured out a way to heal from within and came out a winner. She accepted her faith, her challenges and made sure she worked on herself before working on anything else that was going on in her marriage. Susan never considered giving up and she learned to maneuver through these challenges and find solace in all of it. She became a life coach and helps other cancer survivor to also find peace in their own path.  It is important to remember that no one has any control of their destiny, or control over their relationship as you can't really force the other person to behave the way you want. You need to work on anything you care about the best way possible and let the Universe take care of the rest.   Positive thinking is key and as long as you do whatever it takes to make things work the best way possible, you can never live life with regret wondering if outcomes would have changed based on the amount of effort invested.  Susan is the best proof showing better outcomes and worked towards making the changes she needed to live a happier life.

Happiness Journey with Dr Dan podcast: Season 1 Ep 19: Special Guests: Dr Lorenzo Cohen & Alison Jefferies (Cancer Experts)
This episode touched me in a different way as my own mother went through cancer (breast) treatment (twice). Dr Lorenzo Cohen and Alison Jefferies from Houston are providing amazing insight as how cancer works, discussing the many strategies on how to stay proactive to avoid the chances of getting cancer with proper eating, exercising, tobbaco and alcohol free life. If the latter is impossible, everything in moderation is also acceptable. Where do we draw the line between enabling cancer cells to grow in our body and staying proactive to avoid that from happening? How much obsession can we put into proper eating, exercising and living a stress free life? Will this make us a hypochondriac society where everytime something in our body doesn't feel right we will self diagnose ourselves as it being cancer.  This episode isn't about bringing you fear but more being more self aware and mindful of the life you live today. Being vigilent and understanding how your external environment and other triggers can impact your life. How do you deal with a diagnosis of cancer for yourself or a family member? How can you support them through the process? All this can impact you in a very profound way.  This episode will cover all of that. Thanks to Dr Lorenzo Cohen and Alison Jefferies for giving me an hour of their time to discuss the topic that is so important to me and my loved ones.

Happiness Journey with Dr Dan Podcast: Season 1 Episode 16: Special guest and hypnotist: Lisa Shermerhorn
The many struggles Lisa had to go through in life to become the woman she is today. Nothing come easy and many are accustomed to victimizing themselves in the process. Familiarity is a comfortable place to be but not the best for your mental and physical well-being. We tend to look for solutions but are not willing to make drastic changes to experience these changes. Being in a marriage with a Narcissistic person didn't help her growth either but taking drastic action is what allowed her to change her mindset and grow from it.  Getting out of your comfort zone is somewhat necessary to live a better life. Yes, many FEAR the unknown and that is ok to understand and be aware of the challenges ahead. However, it is not right to constantly live in FEAR and expect different results when doing the same thing over and over again. Adding insanity to the process won't help you reach happiness. Great podcast with a great lady. Listen to her story and be inspired.

Happyness journey with Dr Dan podcast: Special guest Jonathan McLearnon: Season 1 Ep 8
TLC My 600 lbs life: TO ALL ADDICTED TO FOOD episode. Learn from Jonathan McLearnon who have lost 100 pounds over 14 months after struggling many years with a toxic addiction to bing eating and all negative consequences to it. He has tried everything, all diets and tried to figure out which one worked best for him. Obviously, he found the solution and is now helping others develop a healthier relationship with food and how to avoid falling into its vicious grip.  Food is comfort for many but some can take it to the extreme and overeat to suppress difficult challenges they face in life. Unlike other addictions, becoming morbidly obese resulting in overeating is easily recognizable and shunned by society. Someone unable to control themselves can show signs of weakness and urges that can relate to other unresolved issues.  We will address these issues in this podcast and how did Jonathan shared his expert advice to many of his clients suffering from similar predicaments. Enjoy this episode.

TO ALL SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION FANS: This episode is catered to all of you. As this movie has been my favorite one of all times, I had the privilege to interview the one responsible for casting the actors, extras, prisoners, guards for the movie Shawshank Redemption with Tim Robbins and Morgan Freeman.  I learned so many new things from this movie, the location it was taped, which was a century old prison in Ohio, which now have tours if you are interested in attending. Brent Scarpo was able to provide to all of you some major details about the movie, what made him who he is today. One trivia question for all the fans of SR (Shawshank Redemption): What A-list actor was chosen to be Andy Duphrene for this movie? If you are curious to know, listen to this podcast.

Happyness journey with Dr Dan: Segment 37. The hows to being happy
“What if you first got to decide how you’d like to feel – happy or sad, hurt or mad, approving or jealous – and then I had to go out and rearrange all the people and circumstances of your life to make it so? You’d like that, huh? You’d choose happy, eh? Done. The Universe”

The Happyness journey with Dr Dan: Segment 36: Don't be afraid, not even a little
“Please, don’t be afraid. Not even a little. Not ever. The lions and tigers and bears can’t really hurt you. You live in a world of smoke and mirrors where there’s only the illusion that you could somehow become less than the greatest you’ve ever imagined yourself to be. And it’s this very image, the highest from within you, that’s summoned your boldest dreams, daring you into the light with their promised rewards and drawing you through the very fears that have kept you from it. Slayer of dragons. Matador of all time and space. Rightful heir to heaven on earth. Don’t be afraid. Not even a little. Amen,

Happyness journey with Dr Dan: Segment 35: Narrowing down your life's purpose
“You know what they’re going to do, don’t you? And you do know what they’re going to say? Yeah, once you consistently spend some time visualizing every day, doing the “all you can with what you’ve got” dance, and pushing yourself to live the life of your dreams to any degree that you now can, so that the floodgates fly open and you have your dream home, your dream work, and your dream friends. They’re gonna give you that long, cold glance out of the corner of their eyes and say in a long, drawn-out voice, just loud enough for you to hear, “Must… be… nice…” Just warning you, The Universe”(042018)

The Happyness journey with Dr Dan: Segment 34: Never feel regret
Do you know what they all have in common? You know, the billions and billions who came before you, who used to live in the jungles of time and space. Their adventure is over. You know what else? Given another chance, they’d take more risks. Not because they’d always succeed, but because from where they are now, the glory of knowing they at least tried far exceeds any regrets of never knowing what might have been. Tallyho, The Universe

Happyness journey with Dr Dan: Segment 33: True meaning of a miracle
“Those who achieve great things, defeat long odds, and become legends, didn’t have anything you don’t have. They just kept showing up, expecting a miracle, long after everyone else got practical. Here comes one now…! The Universe

A super-secret, double-reminder for all fearless flowers: If you but soak up the sunlight you are given, drink each drop of water I send, and strive only to be yourself, life shall quicken in your roots, spirit shall raise you into the light, and your bloom will inspire the world. You see… I do all the hard stuff. The Universe”

The happiness Journey with Dr Dan: Segment 29: The point of Synchronocity
“Every desired change must happen in thought first. This, of course, is the “hook” to living in time and space. Anyone can think happy thoughts when they’re happy, wealthy thoughts when they’re wealthy, healthy thoughts when they’re healthy. It takes someone highly unusual to imagine things differently than how they now see them; not that it’s hard to do, but it can seem so pointless and ineffective that most won’t ever bother. You crafted the stage you’re now on so that you’d be pushed on to discovering your power, with dreams worth pursuing and the passion to care. Ultimately learning that success comes fastest when you see through life’s illusions, to that which gives them rise: your thoughts, beliefs, and expectations. This is what you most need to know. There haven’t been any accidents, you haven’t made any mistakes, and the perfection of everything now happening in the world and in your life, will one day boggle your mind. Close your eyes and visualize, every single day –

The Happiness Journey with Dr Dan: Segment 28: Keeping up with the Joneses.
“The BIG THING rarely happens when you ask for it, nor does it typically come from who or where you expect. It usually comes a bit later, from someone you didn’t even know when you first asked, as a result of some weird turn of events that were impossible to foresee. So, chill. Be patient. Enjoy the moment. And let your friends, employers, and partners off the hook. Besides, they’re going to have enough to deal with when the BIG THING does arrive, if you know what I mean. Won’t be long,

Happyness Journey with Dr Dan: Segment 27: Your vision of reality
“  “Reality” is not that you are weak, and dream of becoming strong; Poor, and dream of becoming rich; Alone, and dream of having friends. But that you’re already strong, rich, and among friends. Yet, at times, dream that you’re not. Silly,

Happyness Journey with Dr Dan: Segment 26: Where giving up is NEVER an option
“Go for it, not once, but again and again and again. Whatever it takes. Because in the end, with arms held high in the winner’s circle, beaming with joy, as light as a feather, crying your eyes out, you’ll see how fantastically disproportionate the rewards are for the effort expended, the risks taken, and the price paid – no matter how many false starts you endured. And you’ll be astounded by how quickly you made it, even though, when the going got tough and your spirits ebbed, you thought you’d never, ever, ever, “see the day.” Tallyho, The Universe”
November 22, 2020
The happyness journey with Dr Dan: Segment 25: THE POWER OF YOUR INNER THOUGHTS!
“Some things don’t sound like they look. Others don’t look like they sound. There are friends who don’t act like friends. And enemies who’d never dream of hurting anyone. Do you know what the strangest thing about time and space is? Your thoughts will never betray you. They will strive to become things. You can change your circumstances on a dime. And where you’ve been, has no bearing on where you can still go. Zoom, clink, hugs – The Universe

The Happiness Journey with Dr Dan: Segment 24: The Dark side of Neediness.
“Those who are needy of attention, hide from themselves their greatness. Those who are needy of opportunity, hide from themselves their power to create. And those who are needy of love, hide from themselves what’s already there. But boy, oh boy, are they in for a wild ride. Love you like crazy, The Universe Stop looking at what others have and focus too much on what you don't. Find your true purpose in life as it will be different from many others out there. Stop comparing yourself and start being grateful

The Happiness Journey with Dr Dan: Segment 23: Genie in the Bottle
There is so much abundance out there and it is important you focus more on the when, vs the HOW it will all happen. Stop questioning, start doing. Stop thinking about the intricacies of the complex process of the Laws of attraction, and start believing and acting. Your destiny is in your hand, so start working towards your goals. Patience is a virtue and in these times, being virtuous is all we have. Get moving now.

Happyness Journey with Dr Dan: Segment 22: IT IS TIME TO ENJOY THE FRUIT OF YOUR HARD LABOR!
Always believe in yourself and trust that everything you do today will have positive or negative repercussion in the future. Never leave any stones unturned and always invest time spent with family and friends, even though everything may seem bleak at times. Always trust that all the pieces will come together and form something spectacular. Trust that you will achieve your goals and experience ultimate success.

Happyness journey with Dr Dan: Segment 21: HOWLING FROM THE TOP OF YOUR LUNGS!
No one really know how to predict anything happening in their lives at any given time. You feel like you are surfing a wave but not sure how far out or in the ocean it will take you. Risks are taken every day and it is up to you to move forward despite the success or failure resulting from these risks. Don't fear failure as it is a part of the journey. When success do come, make sure to howl so every one can hear, you surely deserve it.

Message from the Universe: Segment 20: Avoid particularities to your dreams
“When your dreams or “end results” are stated generally, in broad brush strokes, like wealth and abundance, friends and laughter, health and harmony, then please, by all means, attach yourself to them. Attach, attach, attach. There is no limit to what you can have and no reason to expect anything less. But when your end results are specific, like the ultimate car, a hot date, or a home in the country, do not attach, do not attach, do not attach. Material details and specifics are always “how” to get to a grander picture of your life and are never important in and of themselves. They’re “cursed hows” disguised as end results. Steps disguised as destinations. By all means, think of them, put them in your scrapbook or on your vision board to remind yourself of the kind of possessions and adventures that are your birthright. But do not give them any importance, through attachment, greater than what you are truly after: a fuller, richer life with all cups running over, the details of which will take care of themselves when this is your end result. Enjoy the interpretation of this message

Happyness Journey with Dr Dan: Segment 19: Life worth living
You will face many uncertainties in life, you will confront many demons, especially some inner voices asking you to give up and be a part of the 97% of the population being followers. You are in control of what you want to do in your own life, so take that control in your hands and take affirmative action to achieve the goals you set for yourself in 2020. There is NO one out there that can do the things better than you to make all of your dreams a reality. Don't get discourage for the struggles you may face in life, as this is just a sign you are headed in the right direction. 
January 10, 2020
Happyness Journey with Dr Dan: Segment 18: IT IS TIME TO ENJOY THE FRUIT OF YOUR HARD LABOR!
The years of struggles are finally providing you with the lifestyle billions would wish for. You confronted the many naysayers, the toxic advice, the reluctant pursuit to discourage you from moving forward and the list goes on and on. You nodded your head politely appreciating their stupid advice, thinking how dumb they were and how miserable their lives really is and went on your way to pursue your dreams. You never stopped, you pushed forward and created the life you always prayed for. Congratulations my friend, you made it. So go ahead, it is now time to enjoy it with a nice cocktail overlooking the Ocean from a terrace sitting on a 50 000 Sq.ft mansion. Enjoy it my friend

The Happyness Journey with Dr Dan: Segment 17: Starting a new year with a new beginning
As we are entering 2020, we should think about all the things we have accomplished and the goals we have reached. Forget about what you missed as you can't really turn back time as you must look ahead. I agree that we can feel some regrets for not doing everything we planned for the past year, but guess what, there is a new year coming up and all you need to do and create new goals. It is possible that what you set up yourself to do last year wasn't so important as you thought it was, hence, you didn't put too much attention to it throughout the year. Possibly, the main reason why it was not done is because you found a different goal to reach which would impact your life in a positive way. So forget about what was not done and focus more on what were the blessings of the past year. That should give you the energy to move forward for 2020. Happy New Year everyone.!

Happiness Journey with Dr Dan: Segment 16: Be a part of that 3% of leaders
Many say they want to succeed, but at what cost? Easier said than done right? We tend to want things in life but not willing to put in the effort, or not have enough patience to push through the challenging times. It won't be easy, hell, it may be suicidal at times where you work your butt off and see NO results. However, where situations can't be observed is when great things are happening. It is not because you DON'T see it that it is not happening. Believe that no matter what you do today, either moving forward with your dreams or not, the results are based on your actions. If you do nothing, expect nothing in return. If you do a lot, things will move towards your goals and you will experience ultimate happiness, wealth and abundance. 
December 18, 2019
Happiness Journey with Dr Dan: Segment 15: Where taking action means everything
Thoughts without actions are just dreams, actions without belief are just destined to fail. Just like the point of singularity that created the Universe that we see today, all have to work in synchronicity. Nothing is just coincidence, as your hard work, your perseverance, your determination, your faith and believe should be a part of that equation. Life doesn't owe you squat, and the only person you owe something to is YOURSELF.
December 10, 2019
Happyness Journey with Dr Dan: Segment 14: Mistakes made, lessons learned
We all make mistakes, and it is ok, because this is how we learn from them. If you are too afraid to make mistakes, means you are too afraid to live. You don't want to live life with regrets by not doing the things you wanted to do because of fear. F.E.A.R is a False Expectation Appearing Real and it is constructed by our own mind. Don't let these voices stop you from doing the things you were meant to do. You must ignore the negative words you purposely create to give you a reason to abandon your dreams. It is not worth your time. 
December 04, 2019
Happiness Journey with Dr Dan:Segment 13: Line to success is never a straight one
If you are about to give up once face with challenges, then there is no point to start anything. Life will throw you curve balls and it is up to you to figure ways around them.

Enjoy your time with family and friends and love life. We only realize what we have after losing everything. So make it a habit to be grateful. Happy Thanksgiving
November 26, 2019
Message from the Universe: Segment 11: Getting close to that YES
No one can predict or anticipate the future, you just have to surf the wave of life. You will face disappointment, frustration, people you depend on the most will suddenly disappear when the going gets tough, and you will feel alone and frustrated. When you expect too much from others, this is when the feeling of disappointment kicks in. Always focus on doing your best, and learn to never regret anything. People waste too much valuable time on regretting what they didn't do on life. 
November 22, 2019
Happiness Journey with Dr Dan: Segment 10: Live the most amazing day of your life
Make today a better day than the day before by changing or tweaking one little thing. Do something different, call someone you haven't spoken to in years, get something for your spouse, be more cordial with people at work or whoever. Be willing to adapt new changes, even if its outside your comfort zone.
November 19, 2019
Happiness Journey with Dr Dan: Segment 9: It's time to take action
So you have great idea, you contemplate it, research it, get all excited and then, it stops. Your inner voice says it is not worth it. You put this idea on the back burner and forget about it. You probably let go of an amazing opportunity. Never give up, take action and go with the flow. Ideas comes and goes, but it is up to you to grab the right one and move forward with it. You don't want to end up regretting it.

Happiness Journey with Dr Dan: Segment 7: Principles of the Laws of attraction
You must stay positive with your thoughts and actions despite the challenges you face daily. Life will always throw you a curve ball, its a matter of you curving the bat so you can hit that ball. You adapt to your environment, its all about how you manage these challenges
November 12, 2019
Happiness Journey with Dr Dan: Segment 6: Criticism at its best
Beware of those who constantly find negative things about you and whatever you do to better yourself will always be confronted with criticism by those who are afraid to see you succeed. Shy away from them and always find ways to find your worth from the things you accomplish daily
November 12, 2019
The Happiness Journey with Dr Dan: Segment 3: Thoughts become things
Just like everything else in life, your thoughts are the point of singularity that kicks in the motion of your own identity. If you want to make changes, starting thinking them then follow with action. You must take that step to make things happen. Believing in yourself is just icing on the cake. 
November 05, 2019
The Happiness Journey with Dr Dan: Segment 5: Intricacies of life
