1.FiveStarReview TB300.png

Hi there, I’m Adam J. Thompson, award-winning author of the life-changing book Hard to Keep Happy. I believe that happiness is not just an emotion, it’s a lifestyle – one that requires constant work, dedication, and a willingness to take action. My book is more than a self-help guide, it’s a call to action for people who are tired of feeling stuck and are ready to take charge of their lives. With Hard to Keep Happy, I will show you how to embrace a positive mindset, set realistic goals, and overcome obstacles to achieve long-term happiness.

A Blog

During the Second World War, US aircraft were armed with an ammunition belt 27 feet long. For the aircrew to use the whole belt on the enemy was to go "the whole nine yards." 


The Whole Nine Yards: A Blog will cover many topics, and maybe a few old war stories.
