    in Relationships

    Thank you for joining Happiness Index.  We continue to explore service, we are returning to Life's Purpose is Service: A Path to Happiness.  


    What is the meaning of service? Is service an international convention agreed by all people? Assuming one works as a cook, dishwasher, taxi –driver, bank manager, City council person, all these positions are paid service positions. Does one focus on the fruit of the service or the work? Why is true service the road less travelled by most people?  Service as life’s purpose can be an impossible task if one is looking for a short cut to self-actualization.  If you would like to join us in this conversation to make the world better for all, please call (347) 539-5818.

    Attitude of Gratitude: Path to Happiness

    in Relationships

    Thank you for tuning in to Happiness Index. Today we will be exploring the Attitude of Gratitude: Path to Happiness with Kokomon Clottey.  The key to happiness is the development and knowing the art of being grateful. “Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend,” as stated clearly by Melody Beattie. Here lies the greatest secret to happiness. One must always be in the frame of mind of gratefulness and cultivate a sense and attitude of gratitude, if one truly want to tap into one’s inner happiness and maintain it. We suggest that we must be grateful for the sun, ocean, billions of stars, the birds that sing and everyone that we share our home “Planet Earth” with.  This attitude of gratitude is a path to happiness.

    What does love have to do with happiness? Featuring Kokomon Clottey

    in Relationships

    Thank you for tuning in to “Happiness Index”.  Our conversation continues to focus on love; today we will explore “What does love have to do with happiness?  We are only a few days away from Valentine’s Day and many will be disappointed with their love ones, because they may believe that they did not get what they wanted from their love one on Valentine’s Day.  It has been said that the day after Valentine’s Day, more candy is found in the garbage than the day after Halloween.  Why do you think that would happen? A partner will give candy to a love one to communicate his or her deep and abiding love. That love one is not able to receive that message, because of their desire for something that he or she may feel is more valuable than candy.  “What does love have to do with it?”  Why aren’t we happy?  Is love the source of our happiness?  Thank you for tuning in to “Happiness Index” with Kokomon Clottey.  Tune in and turn on to happiness!

    Service: A Path to Happiness in 2015 featuring Aeeshah & Kokomon Clottey

    in Relationships

    Service: A Path to Happiness


    We are re-visiting service as a path to happiness in 2015.  Service has a different meaning for many people. However, true service according to the ancient teachings of wisdom traditions is a path to happiness as well as greatness. Examples of great leaders are, Nelson Mandela, Mahatma Gandhi, Buddha, Jesus, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Mother Teresa, Princes Diane to name but a few. All these leaders have one thing in common they served humanity and they went beyond a call of duty. Conceptually, one does not attained greatness until after one’s death. The challenge is that one cannot take the road to greatness by being of service; it is the other way around, one must take the road of service to be great. Dr. Martin Luther King said, "Everyone has the power for greatness -- not for fame, but greatness, because greatness is determined by service.” Service is a matter of devotion and love!  It is a matter of the heart.  Thank you for tuning in to "Happpiness Index".  Call in and let's talk about your view on service and happiness.

    Power of Optimistic Thinking: A Path to Happiness featuring Kokomon Clottey

    in Relationships

    Optimistic thinking is an ancient wisdom.  When one exercises optimistic thinking it inspires a host of opportunities, such as peace, love and happiness. Research by Manju Puri and David Robinson at Duke University finds that optimistic people work harder, get paid more, get elected to office more often, and win at sports more regularly. They even live longer. The meaning of optimism according to the Webster’s New World: The tendency to take the most hopeful or cheerful of matters or to expect the best outcome; practice of looking on the bright side of things.  Albert Einstein said, “No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it.” We are responsible for our thoughts and our feelings", according to the wisdom of Attitudinal Healing. As such, the key to cultivating and maintaining happiness depends on us as the architects. When one holds an optimistic attitude, one can alter life’s experience from negative to positive.  Thank you for tuning in to Happiness Index on Blog Talk Radio to explore with us the Power of Optimistic Thinking: A Path to Happiness.
