Dan Schawbel interviewed Lisa Earle McLeod who is a speaker and author specializing in humor business coaching and spirituality attainment. The full interview! But in case you don’t have time…here are some key points.
- We are being forced to re-evaluate and refocus.
“In today’s environment people are questioning everything. People who once thought they were secure and had a life plan are now finding themselves broke. Relationships that seemed stable are crumbling in the face of stress.
Personally, I think the problem is much bigger than a financial crisis. I think we’re in a spiritual crisis that has caused a financial crisis, meaning that we are having a crisis of spirit”.
- Relationships and giving back lead to happiness
“The secret of happiness is really simple, it’s two things : You need to be connected to the people around you, and to know that you’re part of something bigger than yourself”.
- Be grateful, live in the moment and enjoy the special parts of your life
Yes life is tough, but it is up to you to change how you look at the challenges. Find your happiness in your own back yard! It is there!
