This little parable does a great job of describing how one embarks upon a path to happiness:
A little boy was fascinated with his grandfather's whittling projects. One day the boy walked up to his grandfather with a hunk of wood and said "Grandfather, how do I whittle this into a duck?" The grandfather replied: "That's easy son, you just cut away everything that doesn't look like a duck."
The process for achieving happiness is the same: You need to do an in-depth assessment of your life and then figure out how to whittle away everything that doesn't provide happiness. This booklet will introduce the principles of Integrative Therapy--a self-help system of psychotherapy. The user-friendly theory and techniques will help you rediscover your deepest values and goals and help you overcome any self-destructive thoughts or behavior patterns that keep you from reaching your full potential for happiness.
