Be happy. It’s a choice. Easier said than done, right? Well isn’t everything?
The Happiness Guy, Ricky Powell reaches beyond the Hallmark card platitudes, to demonstrate that being happy is serious work, that it takes practice, that it’s not always easy, but that it IS a choice, and it’s not elusive.
Having spent over 40 years in the entertainment business, both in front of and behind the camera, Ricky Powell has had the opportunity to view life in its brightest and darkest hours. These pivotal experiences taught him the importance of actually “choosing to be happy” and for the past several years he has been teaching others to do the same through his lectures, writing, and coaching. With so many negative messages bombarding us each day, he felt it was his calling to counter the darkness with a burst of light and spiritual energy.
Live from NBC Studios, Ricky takes a break to chat with me here. He is a wise man and models a way of life filled with joy, gratitude, resilience, and generosity.
