Today we’re sharing an excerpt from the audiobook How to Be Miserable: 40 Strategies You Already Use, written by psychologist Randy Paterson. How to Be Miserable outlines 40 specific behaviors and habits, which—if followed to the letter—are sure to lead to a lifetime chock-full of unhappiness. On the other hand, if you do the opposite, you may yet join the ranks of happy people everywhere!
This tongue-in-cheek audiobook will help you identify the behaviors that make you unhappy and discover how you—and only you—are holding yourself back from a life of contentment. You’ll learn to spot and avoid the tried-and-true traps that increase feelings of dissatisfaction, foster a lack of motivation, and detract from your quality of life.
In this episode, Randy Paterson shares a darkly funny technique for making yourself feel inferior to everyone around you. You’ll learn just what to do if you want to be miserable in social situations, and, just maybe, some ways to be comfortable and confident.
