Sunday, June 17th, 2012

This article is an extract of chapter #10 in Karl Moore’s best-selling book, “The 18 Rules of Happiness”.

“Let us be grateful to people who make us happy, they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.” – Marcel Proust

It turns out that Michael Caine was right all along.

Playing Scrooge in the Muppet’s Christmas Carol, he sang: “If you want to know the measure of a man, you simply count his friends!”

Countless studies on the science of happiness have turned up one single characteristic of the happiest and most successful people in society.

They have a large social network!

Lots of friends. Lots of colleagues. Lots of people they call just to banter with for 10 minutes.
