This Happiness TED Talk Changed my Life

I posted this video in one of the first newsletter issues 4 years ago. I still love it! This TED talk by Shawn Achor hugely influenced my life. It has changed what I chase in my life. Following Shawn’s recommendations allowed me to become more positive and to enjoy my life. Give it a try! (This one is for all the fantastic people I talked to in the last days! Thank you all for trusting me)

Powerful Question I Ask Myself Often

“What would I like my children to feel at the same age as I am?”

If you would like them to feel different than what you are currently feeling, it is time to start changing the way you live your life.

This is such a powerful question by Jerry Colonna!

Why I Don’t Gossip

“When you gossip about another person, listeners unconsciously associate you with the characteristics you are describing, ultimately leading to those characteristics being “transferred” to you. So, say positive and pleasant things about friends and colleagues, and you are seen as a nice person. In contrast, constantly complain about their failings, and people will unconsciously apply the negative traits and incompetence to you.” — 59 Seconds by Richard Wiseman

Why I Don’t Care About the Next Life+

“Nobody seems to be grappling with the problem of: Is there a life before death? Yet my experience is that it’s precisely the ones who don’t know what to do with this life who are all hot and bothered about what they are going to do with another life. One sign that you’re awakened is that you don’t give a damn about what’s going to happen in the next life.” Awareness by Anthony de Mello
