I recently had a client say he wasn’t sure what happiness is for him and that it was something that could never be achieved. That it was a moving target.
That got me thinking since I’ve felt happy most of my life with bouts of sadness woven in when loved ones passed or something else happened. But even then, I had a core of happiness. So what is happiness and does it matter where it comes from?
Patricia Noll wrote a powerful book, Good With Me, A Simple Approach to Real Happiness from the Inside Out and I asked her back on the show to answer my clients question about whether happiness is real or an abstract concept that cannot be lastingly achieved.
During this episode you will learn about “other-dependent self esteem”, the “Feel-Good-Now Syndrome” and how you can begin to spark happiness from the inside out and develop and create your own “self-dependent” self esteem.
