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

Being a person of integrity can be one tall order.

But in this podcast, I talk about walking in integrity, step by step and moment by moment.

As usual, I'll share some definitions and also provide a personal story or two to bring it all home.

Be encouraged to be your best and most whole as you, too, start walking in your own integrity.

We may think that learning stops when we leave school or attain a new academic degree. But life lessons are of another sort that help in the growth of our human soul. Whether good or bad, they can help us grow into our bigger, better, wiser and more peaceful self.

We can expend our energy in a negative or positive fashion, fighting against something that disturbs us or applying ourselves toward a positive ideal or vision. One drains our energy while the other helps fuel it.

In this podcast, I share personal experiences on both sides of the political aisle -- plus a unique story behind it -- to bring home some insights on the topic. Listen to assess where and how you're expending your personal energies, then consider how to focus yourself toward something you can positively promote!

We've all suffered from this malaise! Intuition tells us one thing, but we ignore its signals. If you have inwardly known something, yet failed to acknowledge it openly to yourself, you'll eventually have to come to terms with the truth. Like all podcasts, expect to hear a personal story and receive guidance on a brighter outlook for living happy -- from the inside out.

Admitting to being wrong is often one of the most difficult things we do. But does avoiding the words, "I was wrong," make us feel better or worse?

In this podcast, I introduce how our early training, and even our religious upbringings, can make admitting to being wrong a major social, emotional and even psychological challenge. Then, I share several stories of how admitting when I was wrong actually made me feel better!

Explore this topic for yourself. See if being "wrong" might sometimes be the "right" thing to do for your personal peace and happiness, too!
