Life Satisfaction: A Scientist’s Guide by Leo Lafferty-Whyte, PhD

With a PhD in Molecular Oncology, experienced life coach Leo brings an unusual mix of scientific and motivational methods to put people on the path to life-changing happiness. 

Feeling Stuck? Fed up with thinking 'I'll be satisfied when' but who knows when that will be? How can we simply 'be satisfied' when the pressures of jobs, mortgages and relationships are upon us all?

Enter Leo Lafferty-Whyte, Ph.D, who has spent over twenty years researching, learning and practising the tools and techniques he has discovered which today enable him to help his clients live a happy and fulfilled life. Now, in Life Satisfaction; A Scientist's Guide, Leo shares his no-nonsense Triple 'H' approach  covering the three pillars of Health, Happiness and Harmony along with his own deeply personal story which he hopes will give readers the tools to enjoy, and make the most out of,  life. 

Dr. Leo Lafferty-Whyte

In this tale of two halves, Leo starts off with the analogy of building a house to highlight the importance of his three central pillars of self-development with Healthy providing the foundations, Happy the structure and Harmony the environment you choose to build and that all of these to be just right for you otherwise the house can fall down. Leo then introduces the first stage of his guide, the concept of 'Life Currency.'

Using maths, Leo invites you to reflect on different areas of our life  from career to health and fitness and finances and calculate how satisfied you are with each as well as how important each is to you. The results of his questionnaire highlights your deficit and paves the way for the all important first-month plan that will provide a clear and accessible series of weekly goals. The second stage, and one which will ensure success, is Leo's reward and consequence system based on the primal brain's response to the pleasure Vs. pain principal.

As Leo explains, individuals will go to great lengths to avoid something that they don't want to do or 'gives them pain,' therefore by applying consequences the success rate for achieving goals will be higher. However, Leo is also quick to highlight that anyone who is looking to make serious and long lasting changes in their lives not only need 'Cheerleaders' in their lives but also a 'Wiggle Week.' Acknowledging the awkward human traits of enthusiasm and indecisiveness, Leo allows the first week of each month to be an opportunity to alter your weekly goals for the rest of the month in order to ensure that you can reach your monthly target.

After outlining his methodology, the book then moves on to Leo's own deeply personal transformation using the Triple 'H' approach. Open and honestly, he documents the successes and challenges he faced along the way and the astounding results he got in just four weeks. 

A no-nonsense and accessible approach to self-development, Life Satisfaction; A Scientist's Guide is the perfect read for those of us looking to find their inner satisfaction and keep hold of it, no matter what is happening in our lives.
