Stop chasing happiness and seek fulfillment instead Strive shakes up everything you know about happiness, turns you around, and sets you on the track to true fulfillment. It's not what you think—happiness is not found in achievement and luxury and having all the free time in the world. Humans are most fulfilled and feel best about themselves when they are striving towards a difficult goal that involves struggle and discomfort. Dr. Adam Fraser is a peak performance researcher who helps people strive for ’better’ in everything that they do; in this book, he shares his insights into the human condition and why happiness always feels just out of reach. Whether you're looking to boost workplace productivity, or just need the motivation to go about your daily life, this book will show you the little-known truths about happiness, purpose, and fulfillment. In working with groups from all around the world, Dr. Fraser has observed that the unhappiest and most unfulfilled people have low levels of struggle and challenge. Too much comfort robs them of a sense of purpose; they have nothing to strive for, because everything is fine the way it is. This book takes you inside the root of human motivation to show you how to live and work toward fulfillment. Grow and evolve through embracing discomfort Reframe struggle as an opportunity for development Learn the three behaviours of striving effectively Discover your motivation—and use it Learn why you are most proud of overcoming the hard things in life When you're working toward a goal, you are engaged, motivated, and ready to take on the world. Once you achieve your goal, your happiness plummets—because nothing is left to strive for—unless you set your next goal right away. Strive provides the roadmap, and shows you how the joy is in the striving—not the destination.

Rachel Anderson is stunning to look at, dresses beautifully, and has a warm personality with a winning smile. Having worked in a top job in finance in Brisbane, answered an advert for a similar job at the Gold Coast, she was successful. When she met young entrepreneur James Sergeant, her new boss, he asked if she would take on the challenge learning to read, write, and speak Chinese. Business was now in the Chinese market, and they needed a front person who could speak fluently. Rachel took on the challenge within three months, doing as James had asked. When they arrived in Hong Kong for a charity function, James introduced her to his best friend, Blake. Fireworks were definitely going off between the two of them. Blake had started a charity for kids off the streets in Hong Kong. When he arrived three years prior, he found kids being kicked, pushed, and beaten to move on from shop fronts in the morning where they slept, not one person offering a cent to get food. Blake was horrified by this, so he decided to do something about it, endearing himself to the Chinese people. Blake had set up a display of what he had envisaged for the kids off the streets, with the crème de la crème of China attending the function. They paid millions toward this dream of this young Australian who wanted to do good for their unwanted children. During the following twelve months, his dream came to fruition, and as did his love for Rachel. He and James discussed their situation of both loving the same girl. James knew he would have to bow out gracefully. This story is heartfelt and gives good relations between two totally different countries as well as how people can come together for the right cause. "Look after the children. They are our future."
