Welcome to Episode 19 of the Young and Happy.com Podcast. In today’s episode, I discuss my recent challenge to come up with 100 things I want to do with my life.
This challenge was both frustrating and exciting. I was astonished at how hard it is to actually come up with 100 things I would like to do with my life, and at only 26 years old! But, once I started developing my goals, I’ve become extremely exciting to pursue my life “bucket list”.
Let me know what you think about this challenge and how you feel it could be beneficial to your life.
Welcome to Episode 18 of the Young and Happy.com podcast. Today, I talk about a lesson I learned from “The Alchemist” by Paulo Coelho about how life is about the journey, not the destination.
When it comes to setting goals and achieving happiness and success, I, like so many others, focus on that end game of where I would like to end up. Unfortunately, keeping my eyes fixated on that end game distracts me from the present and saps my enjoyment out of my pursuit of this goal. As Paulo Coelho explains through the story of the boy, the most important part of our life is the journey to achieving our Personal Legend and not in the actual Legend itself. Today, I discuss this teaching and how I’m using it to increase my happiness in the present.
Let me know your Personal Legend below and how you stay grounded in the present.
Welcome to Episode 17 of the Young and Happy.com podcast. In today’s episode, I discuss how our remedy for getting through tough times may be hurting our future.
Often times, when I’m having a bad day or doing something I don’t enjoy, I’ll tell myself that “Hey, it’s alright, one day everything is going to be better”. This isn’t terrible. However, in reassuring myself, I find myself not taking steps to make that dream become true. Therefore, I’ve come to the conclusion that simply reassuring my future success isn’t enough to actually making it a reality. I couple this by explaining a story I read from “The Alchemist” by Paulo Coelho.
Take a listen and let me know what you think below. Thanks!
