Are you employing your most powerful weapon? If you’re on a path to living happy from the inside out, you’ll want to know what this weapon is – and how to use it!

The powerful weapon is choice, the choice to forgive. If you have suffered emotionally, physically, financially or otherwise, exercising the power of forgiveness is your key to peace and happiness.

Listen as I share how I discovered and triggered this personal weapon, even as a young child.

You’ll hear an alternate story of another woman who chose to withhold forgiveness instead. Muse over a few unpleasant and confining outcomes that occur when we choose not to release forgiveness.

Wherever you are today, I urge you to listen in to this insightful and profoundly personal message. Choosing the power of forgiveness may be difficult, but the benefits we receive are bountiful!

Learn how to get access to another story of my major forgiveness secret available in a new book release called I Bared My Chest.

Finally, meet Cathy Sanders from Clearwater, Florida, and discover what makes her happy from the inside out, too.

We’re often waiting for happiness to “happen” to us. But can we do something on our end to facilitate those good feelings and a sense of well-being?

In this podcast, I share many upbeat synonyms for happiness and contrast them with a few antonyms – to include the word sadness. Listen in as I share on at least one occasion how I made an affirmative choice to step away from sadness and chose happiness and hope for myself.

Make some of your own connections with feelings of happiness and choose a more empowered path for yourself, too. Don’t forget to listen to our special guest who shares how she lives happy from the inside out, too.

Have you ever experienced loss, only to discover you’d gained?

Most of us try to avoid loss, even when we’re bored, unhappy, in pain or in a present state of discontent. We consider loss as a negative proposition and can be tempted to see such losses through a limited and disappointing lens.

In this podcast, I share three types of “losses” I’ve experienced over the years. Then, I demonstrate how each loss transitioned into several types of unexpected, personal gains.

Regardless of the type of loss you might be facing, may you feel inspired to see circumstances through a broader, brighter and more hopeful personal lens.

Then, listen in to Christina from Brooklyn, New York.

Are you preparing for success or waiting around for it to happen?

In this podcast, we examine an old adage: Success happens when preparation meets opportunity.

Often, we wish for our success and long for seemingly elusive events.

However, we overlook the fact that luck most often occurs when our intentions, efforts and activities point us toward a desired end. We can either be passive hopers or actively engaged doers as we prepare for the positive outcomes we hope for in life.

Listen in to three stories about turning hopes and dreams into realities. As you do, feel inspired to discover how the process of preparation is good for us on a number of levels. Perhaps most importantly, preparing for our future success ultimately makes us happier from the inside out.    

As a special holiday offer, find out how you can receive one of my Art of Happiness books for free.

Finally, listen in as Jason shares with us what makes him happy from the inside out, too.

Most of our personal conflicts and greater social problems arise out of fear.

In this podcast, I discuss the two ultimate, yet polarized, human emotions: one is love and the other is fear. Love is our birthright and our natural state of wholeness, peace and harmony where vitality continually flows.

The second emotion, fear, exists on the opposite side of the emotion spectrum. Fear obscures our true life, seeking to avoid, protect and limit rather than allowing us to extend and grow.

Discover some ancient words of wisdom that remain timeless and telling for us today. Then expect some guidance on how to step beyond fear and pass through to the love and life within that longs to wake us up to something better, brighter and freer.

In this podcast, I also offer a special gift that should make you smile. Find out how you can get a free copy of my Art of Happiness book on Values by writing Maura@Maura4u and referencing this podcast.

Finally, meet former NFL player Mark Pattison and now Find Your Summit podcaster as he shares what makes him happy from the inside out, too.

 Have you been viewing your life and circumstances through a restricted and narrow perspective, or opening up your mind to a broader way of thinking?

In this podcast, discover several examples of how by defining an idea through a narrow perspective, I prevented myself from seeing so much more – even though the evidence was all around me!

If you have ever restricted your own ideas on life and are looking for inspiration that leads to abundant vision, listen in.

We all want to be happy, but what if that desire for happiness makes us afraid? Often, we focus on the “cost” of change rather than the ultimate benefits we hope to enjoy.

The cost of happiness can show up in a variety of ways. Each one of them reveals itself via a private nudge, especially when we’re paying attention to life cues.

Listen as I share three of my own stories about confronting the cost of happiness: 1) facing a type of self-incarceration so I could adjust for future freedom; 2) acknowledging a life phase was over and shedding old things to prepare for a new, purposeful life chapter; and 3) confronting a private “aha!” moment and choosing to drop childish thinking so I could move into greater realms of authenticity and emotional adulthood.

Are you ready to pay the cost for experiencing greater happiness? This podcast will help challenge and inspire you to pay in – and expect to gain big benefits in the end.

Then listen to Margaret from Waterford, Connecticut as she shares what makes her happy from the inside out, too.
