How much control do we have over our happiness?

One research study found that 50% of our happiness is genetically predetermined, 10% is due to life circumstances (money, relationship, job etc) and 40% is the result of your own personal outlook.  It’s that 40% that we have so much power over.  I can actually teach people the tools they need to be happy and have complete control over that 40% (assuming that study is correct because we all know from Dr Bruce Lipton’s work that genetics control nothing and the likelihood is that we have control over as much as 90% of our happiness).   Happiness is a learned trait and is very often a choice, once we know how to make it.  If you’d like to learn how to be happy, because no-one teaches us that in school or in life, let me know and I’ll help.
