Maura Sweeney: Living Happy Inside Out | Encouragement | Inspiration | Empowerment | Leadership

If you’ve ever felt disenchanted, disillusioned or even critical of experts and authorities, consider looking to yourself as a new source.

In a busy world, we often surrender our talents and ideas to others. We take a passive approach to the greater world, viewing it like observers watching an on-stage performance rather than actively playing a role of our own.

Listen as I share two seminal personalities from the past and how they helped inspire me to play a role in our current culture and marketplace of ideas. Then, I invite you to use your own imagination. Ignite some of your latent talents and untapped abilities to “be who you really want to be” in the world.

Afterward, listen in to music maker Vicky Fulop share what makes her happy from the inside out, too.

We all look forward to receiving gifts that excite our senses and surprise us in positive ways. But what happens when the “gift” we encounter has nothing to do with our perceptions of good?

In this podcast, we explore how life’s curve balls can actually bring us some unexpected gifts in the form of personal benefits. In it, I share a story from several years ago that turned a good portion of my life, thoughts, spirituality and even sense of self on its head. During the process, I was forced to face certain personal issues and hidden fears that needed some introspection.

As painful and grievous as the process felt, I gained greatly and emerged far freer, stronger and happier.

Whether you’re facing separation, sickness, economic loss or something else that stings you today, tune in to this inspiring and hopeful podcast.

The contrast between polarity and peace came into sharp focus recently with the 2016 U.S. Presidential election process and the division and strife that followed.

In this timely, yet evergreen, episode, we take a look at the distinctions between what it feels like to live in polarity and what it’s like to abide in peace.

Discover how peace is not the opposite of someone else’s position. Instead, it paves a third path for anyone seeking inner happiness. Choosing to live in peace provides us opportunity to think, envision and operate in ways that promote new outcomes and increase our sense of personal agency.
