Chuck Bolton’s New Book Reaches Bestseller Status: The Reinvented Me: Five Steps to Happiness in a Crazy Busy World

MINNEAPOLIS, Dec. 28, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — It’s a universal desire to experience a happy and successful life, but in today’s crazy busy world, both seem more elusive. A new study by Minneapolis business coach Chuck Bolton shows happiness in the US is on the decline.











“We are too busy, distracted and living unhealthy lives that we forego our happiness. But it doesn’t have to be that way,” said CEO coach and bestselling author Bolton who shares a holistic system for reinventing your happiness in his new book, The Reinvented Me: Five Steps to Happiness in a Crazy Busy World, released on December 28, 2015.

“Forty percent of your happiness is based on your voluntary actions – driven by your thoughts and behaviors. And it’s your birthright to be happy,” he said.

“Findings in the field of neuroscience prove the brain is malleable and you can reinvent how you think and behave in order to increase your happiness. We’re hardwired to perform our best when we’re happy,” he said.

Bolton’s Rules for Applying the Five Steps to Happiness in the C-Suite:

  1. Reinvent your mindset
  2. Reinvigorate your relationships
  3. Develop the eight happiness skills
  4. Reclaim your energy, then your time
  5. Reinvent by training, not just trying.

“If people follow these five steps, they will be on the road to living an intentional, purposeful life, raising your happiness level and raising your success,” he said.

Within the book, Bolton describes the conflict between the Repeater (our lesser self) and the Reinventor (our higher self) we each fight within.  Bolton shares step-by-step the techniques to reinvent your happiness and become successful.  Executives who want to be happier will  discover:

  • How to use the Wheel of Happiness to assess and monitor your happiness

Which Pain Will You Choose? The Pain of Discipline or Regret?

In The Reinvented Leader, author Chuck Bolton shares the wisdom and tools he has developed from working with more than 1,000 executives and 100 top leadership teams. Like Pat Lencioni and Ram Charan, Bolton sees patterns while working across many organizations and industries. He has become adept at recognizing patterns that are a multiplier for productivity and career development, as well as patterns that are destructive. Pros like Bolton are invaluable since they bring essential learnings and proven tools to accelerate change and positive growth to individuals and organizations.
In this book, Bolton focuses on the five critical steps to becoming your best, all you can be. These include mindset, energy, robust relationships, the right stuff, and training vs trying.But before Bolton gets into each of these five steps, he challenges the reader by asking the question, “Why Reinvention?” And he responds with two very provocative quotes:

  • “Which pain will you choose? The pain of discipline or the pain of regret? It’s not just for you. What will you do with your life that will last forever? It’s your time.” —Jim Rohn
  • “People who cannot invent and reinvent themselves must be content with borrowed postures, secondhand ideas, fitting-in instead of standing out.” —Warren Bennis

Reinvention is to consciously transform how you operate, connect and lead so you can stay relevant, energized and create maximum value in whatever you choose to do. To do this, consider your:

  • Mindset – Bolton challenges the reader with fundamental questions: What are your beliefs? Are they limiting or empowering? What is your “why”?
  • Energy, then time – Are you harnessing your energy which springs from four sources—spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical? Leaders take care of their own energy and help boost the energy of those around them. Energy is key to concentration, clarity, creativity, and thought-ful decision-making. Bolton provides tips and solutions for evaluating your routine and for increasing your energy.
  • Robust relationships – Who are the people critical to your success? How do you nurture these relationships, and those of people who are less critical? Do you have a people plan? How do you connect, show empathy, generosity, intimacy and yes, vulnerability?

“Emotional distance is growing today and critical relationships are becoming fewer and more fragile,” writes Bolton. He offers seven ways to increase your relationship capital (the W-5, the 90-second rule, and more)

  • The Right Stuff – What is your story? Are you a life-long learner? Do you get feedback? Give feedback? What do leaders view as the “right stuff” required for the 21st century?  Inspirational leadership, exceptional team-building, unimpeachable integrity, clear communication, compelling vision, customer obsession. Where do you need to grow?
  • Training versus Trying – Knowledge does not equal change. We overestimate what we can do by trying and we underestimate what we can do by training. Are you in training? Do you have deliberate practices for creating new habits, building new skills? Transformation comes with disciplined training.

The Reinvented Leader is a call to action for developing our leadership potential. Today, the world is begging for trust-based inspirational leadership. The need is great since we are suffering from mediocrity in leadership.

Whether we realize it or not, we are all leaders. This book is for everyone. Reinvent and reach your leadership potential. It will make you unstoppable and willgive you a competitive advantage in whatever you do.

Don’t judge this book superficially. Read it. The Reinvented Leader was not published by a major publishing house. But don’t let that fool you as it is better than most books released by major publishing houses.

I highly recommend this book. It is filled with great content and the author also provides numerous links to helpful web-based information, some of which he created.
