New York Women’s Leadership speaker and author publishes inspiring book for women

Happiness is Your Responsibility: Peggy’s Playbook of Motivational Moments, a new book by Peggy Sullivan, has been published by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc.

Full of humor, warmth and straightforward truths, “Happiness is Your Responsibility” takes you through a whirlwind of emotions through storytelling and visual design. Everyone wants to be happy, but for some reason our happiness has become linked to worldly achievements and successes rather than the other way around. “Happiness is your responsibility” is there to tell you that happiness is an inside job. When you take responsibility for your own happiness, it will improve the quality of your life in monumental ways.

“My goal was not to write a book about happiness, but to educate myself on the art and science of happiness. The more I learned, the more I realized how powerful it is! No only it actively encourages growth – but it also adds fun to the everyday and mundane events in your life. “

You will laugh, you will cry, and you will find yourself picking up post-it notes and a highlighter to jot down all the convenient and easy ways to stretch, strengthen, and flex your happiness muscle.

All proceeds from the sale of the author’s books will go to the women’s non-profit organization, SheCAN !, of which Sullivan is the founder. The organization will use this round of funding to create programming around the theme of the book, “How to Flex and Maintain Your Happiness Muscle,” through what Sullivan calls the Happiness Tripod, a combination of professional development, personal development, of health and well-being.
