TV show on Channel 1 Caracas is the source of happiness for households across Venezuela. It’s the weekly The Way to Happiness show with actor Eduardo Galán.​

Galán believes that happiness depends on traditional values: Living an honest lifetreating others with decency and being industrious, among other virtues. In fact, he says there are 21 factors that contribute to this elusive state of mind that people everywhere aspire to. And he says they are laid out in a booklet called The Way to Happinessa nonreligious moral code based on common sense. Here is a code that can be followed by anyone of any faith. And when you use it, it works.

"I follow all the steps of the book, a different one every day, and I can say I'm very happy."

Galán’s TV shows takes up one of the 21 precepts each week and uses excerpts from The Way to Happiness public service announcements and book-on-film to make the information easy to understand and use.

But his work to spread happiness is not just confined to the air waves. He recently helped train 300 members of the Venezuela National Guard on these precepts and he’s brought the booklet to other Latin American countries as well, including Argentina and Ecuador, with workshops for law enforcement officers and the military.

But Galán isn’t simply telling other people what they should do. He applies these precepts himself.In a recent newspaper article, he said “I follow all the steps of the book, a different one every day, and I can say I'm very happy.”

The Church of Scientology and its members are proud to share the tools for happier living contained in The Way to Happiness will all who seek to make the world a better place. Written by author and humanitarian L. Ron Hubbard in 1981, the campaign to distribute the book has been embraced by more than 257,000 groups and individuals, with some 115 million copies given out in 186 nations.
