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

Remember The Golden Rule, the credo that reminds us to do unto others as we would have them to do unto us?

Many of us agree that The Golden Rule sounds great in theory. Over time, however, we discover that people around us don’t always abide by it. Perhaps we don’t abide by it, either.

My previous podcast on Respect feeds right into this latest subject, delving into the nebulous and often challenging arena known as interpersonal relationships. Within this current podcast, I share how I’ve endeavored to employ The Golden Rule on personal and professional fronts, and offer a final tale that might greatly surprise you!

If you’ve ever pondered why the world behaves the way it does, and wondered what can be done to turn it around, tune in for a listen.

Expect to be challenged and inspired. More than that, expect to operate as a potential world changer as you increase your peace and happiness while you’re paving a way to the peace and happiness of others!

In our quest to live a happy life, the desire to feel respected by others plays a big part. But what happens when we’re not sufficiently respected? What do we do and how do we respond, especially when we feel humiliated?

When such challenges occur, we can respond by counter-attacking those around us. Choosing to do so, however, can further erode our self-respect while undermining the respect we might offer to others.

Is there another way to handle disrespect and humiliation? Can we possibly take a negatively charged, disrespectful situation and turn it around for good? This podcast may provide you with an “aha!” thought – or even two – on the topic.

In this latest podcast, I share several personal stories on the subject of respect. Follow me as I recount uncomfortable situations with others: peers, an authority figure, and even close family members.

In it, discover that there’s more than one way to respond when disrespect comes knocking at your door. Respect runs in more than one direction, and you might become an unwitting vehicle to help others learn respect – even as you’re busy upholding your own.

You might not be dealing with anger, but you could easily find yourself in the negative emotional zone known as fear.

Fear is the opposite of peace; it’s the antithesis of love. By its very nature, fear separates us from the awareness of peace, security, happiness and so many more positive, life-affirming emotions.

In this latest podcast, I share a personal story from my background. Busting the myth of the “perfect childhood,” I talk about a weakness in my own household that left me feeling fearful. That fear caused me to self-protect and create my own wall of emotional isolation.

Ultimately, those suppressed feelings found their outlet in a dramatic moment of anger, one that needed to be addressed in a helpful rather than harmful way.

Come along with me on my journey. I convey the surprising role of love in dissipating negative emotions and paving a path to the awareness of love, grace and peace.

Your experiences with negative, fear-based emotions may arise from a variety of sources. This podcast will help you remove some of your own barriers to love and free you to enjoy greater happiness and well-being.

Are you a person of integrity?

In this latest podcast, I take up the definitions of integrity. Not only do they include honesty and moral uprightness, but definitions for integrity speak to a person’s state of being “whole” or undivided.

There are many ways in which our sense of being “whole” or “undivided” impacts our thoughts and intentions about ourselves and others. In particular, when we see ourselves as divided rather than part of the whole of society, we can lose our peace and compromise the expression of our higher self.

Listen in as I share a few anecdotes and hear an apt, famous quote on the topic. Then, expect to be challenged to check into your own relationship with integrity.

May you find your vision expanding, your consciousness growing and your ability to become a person of integrated character adding to your happiness and the betterment of the world.

Finally, listen to Ally, a university student from Cape Cod, Massachusetts as she shares what makes her happy from the inside out, too.
