BARRINGTON, N.J., March 6, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Camden County College business administration professor Lawrence J Danks

initially developed his Real Happiness for You website to motivate college students, soon realizing that it could help anyone. The site includes summarized, guided readings on happiness and success. Danks says, "These resources can be a starting
point for setting higher goals and building a better life":

  • Happiness and Well Being
  • Improved Thinking
  • Increased Confidence and Positive Attitude
  • How to Find Happiness
  • Pitfalls to Avoid
  • Self-Management
  • Becoming Successful
  • Thinking Small
  • Making Little Bets and Improving Luck
  • Be an Innovator
  • Increasing Motivation
  • Lost Love and Recovery From Grief
  • Reinvention
  • Become a Better Person
  • Getting a Job
  • Maximizing an Unfinished Life
  • College Students: Planning a Future

He noted though that "The benefit of these resources can only be determined by the actual steps someone takes to improve their life. Just reading about it is no substitute for setting meaningful goals and actually doing something to accomplish them."

How long should someone keep at this? Danks says to keep two thoughts in mind:

Plan To Live To Be One Hundred

The motivational speaker, Robert Schuller, said planning to live to be one hundred is the proper time reference. The idea is to always have personally relevant goals or a project. This can give life new meaning that helps produce happiness and a feeling of success. A feature on "Sixty Minutes" said that the population demographic over ninety years old is the fastest growing in the country. It's projected to quadruple in the coming decades. "Most don't make it to one hundred, but ninety is good too," Danks says. "Just make the most out of whatever time you've got left."

Never Be Done

As long as someone is still breathing, it's not over. Keep Renoir's deathbed words in mind: "I am still progressing."

The famed British polar explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton is buried on South Georgia Island in the South Atlantic. He failed to reach the South Pole, but set the standard for leadership and engendered loyalty and the importance of team building. Follow his lead:

"Never the lowered banner, never the last endeavor." Keep fighting until the end. There is still much to give and a great example to set for others.

Visit now. It's there to make a difference.

To augment the information provided in his website, Danks mentioned his latest book, It's a Matter of Life and Death: Growing Up in a Funeral Home and What I Learned Since, available on Amazon in paperback and as an e-book. The book has three parts:

-          Seeking Happiness-          Growing Up in a Funeral Home-          The Takeaway From Seven Decades

Danks says, "I've been asked how a book that talks about death and funerals can have anything to do with happiness, but when you grow up in a funeral home, you learn what's important in life and what isn't fairly quickly."
