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

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!
