A Spiritual Road Map

Food for thought: Everyone has problems and issues they need to work through, and nobody is immune. It reminds me of the quote from Plato:
Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.
There are successful people who will settle for nothing short of success. When they fail - they work and they plan and they overcome.
Money cannot bring you happiness, but it can provide you with things that you can enjoy and can provide you with the opportunity to share abundantly wit

Written simply and easy to read, yet a profound guide to happiness and spiritual fulfillment.

I really liked this book and the timing for reading it couldn't have been better. This for me was a confirmation that I am not selfish, that I can help and support family or friends, but that my own happiness comes first. This is a book that I will read over and over again. Life is good :)

I don't think you will find any startling revelations in this free/low cost offering in e-book format but you will find some very useful reminders. For those of you that are uncomfortable with 'new age" religion I think you will still find the suggestions helpful. New age or Eastern beliefs are not critical to what the author has to share with us as the suggestions transcend those beliefs, I tend to think of them as helpful reminders and I found myself highlighting some of her suggestions. This ...more

I truly enjoyed this book. I loved how the author spelled things out so simplistically. I plan to re-read this book so as to reinforce the rules.

After reading this one, I felt like everything is so simple. It made me realize a lot of things about how one's life should be lived. The tips are practical and useful unlike other self help books which offer tips that are hard to attain.

This book served as a simple reminder, of things most of the time I miss out on, I took for granted or I failed to recognize. This book encourages you to reach for your dreams. I know it's cliche but with this book, it feels like ev

The Pursuit of Happiness: 21 Spiritual Rules to Succeed by Jennifer O’Neill—wrote this book as a guide to help its readers focus on developing a state of Happiness. O’Neill does this by expounding on 21 Spiritual Rules. These 21 rules are not a new discovery but are ideas that the reader have previously been exposed to. The concept that comes across most and should be reinforced is that each individual is in control of their destiny or happiness, but, each individual must know who they are. By t ...more

I enjoyed this book. Even though it was short, it had a lot of helpful advice. Most of the things were already well-known. However, some information was brought about in an original manner.
It was well-written and helpful.

Happiness can lead to Success

I read this book with the sincere hope of better understanding the correlation between happiness and success. To some extent the author accomplished this objective with both insight and intuitive clarity. I did however, find myself drifting thoughtlessly at times, from dialect similar to previous renditions of this topic. I would recommend this book as a primary source of comprehending the concepts that intertwine the topic and the factors that influence their relati

If you know me and/or have read much of anything I've written lately, you know that I have been studying JOY and all things to do with joy and happiness, so (and as a Christian) choosing to read Jennifer O'Neill's THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS: 21 SPIRITUAL RULES TO SUCCESS was a no-brainer (especially I got it for my Kindle for next to nothing). I would give the book more than 3 stars if the author wasn't a psychic. The title includes the word "spiritual," so as a Christian, I was thinking of "spiri ...more
I try to think of myself as less religious and more spiritual as I grow in my faith and walk with Christ. For me though, "spiritual" does mean related to faith in God (even if your view of God may be a bit different than mine). Therefore, when I read the title of this book (a freebie through Amazon) and looked at the chapters and the fact that each one was titled as a "spiritual rule", I really and truly thought this would be based on Scripture. As my husband pointed out to me when I complained ...more

No revelations here

This book is more of a reminder than a guide. Some helpful not so preachy platitudes can be found in its pages, as well as some exercises to reinforce positivity---but nothing earth shattering. I normally give 3 stars for an average book, but I give this one two due to the overuse of exclamation points (You too can be happy! It's a choice! Choose happy! ) and for the bad advice of boycotting the news...To me, willful ignorance does not equal happy.

FANTASTIC BOOK! It is short, nicely written and provides amazing lessons to apply to our daily lives. When you feel at a crossroads in life, read this book carefully and make highlights or notes so you can refer back to them. Excellent life coach, the author Jennifer O'Neill has written a wise, practical book and highly recommended.

"Things will never change if you never plan on changing them. Change requires action, action requires a plan, planning requires thought, and thought changes everything..."

This book is an excellent tool to be use daily as a reminder to keep moving... forward!

Nice reminders (reminder for me, anyway) how to deal with negativity, love, choices...LIFE. Puts in perspective how to enjoy all of what life offers with a different attitude and mind set. Change your though patterns and you will change your outcomes.

preachy and uninspiring. I'm glad this was a free download. It states very obvios factors for a supposedly happier life. Also I'm fairly certain no one check this book for grammar.

A simple yet important reminder of what's important in life. Incredibly logical and practical (perhaps more so than 'spiritual') and beneficial to how we live life!

So easy but so true

Apply the lessons along with the course of miracles and voila a new you.
Thank you it is working

Very good read

I really enjoyed this book immensely. I learned a lot and I will be practicing these spiritual laws to the best of my ability.

It's informative and to the point. I learned a few new things. I love that at the end it has a list (appendix) of the 21 rules to happiness.

Nothing new to offer. A bit preaching and gets boring quickly. If you're totally lost this might be for you.
