I’m so excited to welcome my friend, Robert Mack, onto the podcast today. He is a celebrity happiness coach and we met on his talk show. I was just floored by his energy. If you don’t know Robert yet, you’re gonna love him. He writes and speaks to people about how to achieve effortless, authentic success and authentic personal happiness based on the Ivy League science of positive psychology and timeless spiritual wisdom. Robert is here to share with us all about how we can become happier because I think that’s everyone’s true goal. He believes that everything we do is really to feel better, which he calls “feeling better happiness.”

As a child and young adult, Robert dealt with depression and suicidal ideation. As he attempted to follow through with those suicidal thoughts, he experienced more peace and bliss than he had ever experienced in his life. He didn’t understand at the time but he began to research and started to slowly dig himself out of the hold of depression and away from suicidal ideation. After some time, he found a Master’s program at Penn that was called Applied Positive Psychology and focused on the science of what makes life worth living. He started his private practice and things sort of unfolded from there. It began as a selfish effort to be happy himself, but evolved from there.
