Maura Sweeney: Living Happy Inside Out | Self-Improvement | Leadership | The Power of Happiness


Why does money carry such an overwhelming importance in our lives and our decision-making processes?

A recent conversation I had with a retired U.S. general provided inspiration for this ever-present and seemingly overwhelming question.

We’ve all fallen prey to the powerful idea that claims we need money in order to live. The all-too-familiar familiar notion shows up in ways ranging from the subtle and familiar to the highly coarse and cavernous.

In this podcast, I take up several examples of how our higher decisions yield and become compromised when weighed against the collective belief in the sovereignty and allure of money. I also consider what life might be like if we’d scale back our interest and deference to its lofty position and imagine living in more sincere and authentic ways.

If you’ve blamed others around you for compromising themselves to money or have condemned yourself for doing the same, tune in to this uplifting podcast. Regardless of past or current circumstances, there’s always room for new, brighter and happier perspectives to be gained.

We’ve all experienced some bad examples in life.

Bad examples show up as parents, teachers, bosses and other supposedly superior personalities. Their effects often remain with us, even long after those relationships have passed!

In this podcast, I share two bad examples I had in my life and how the difficulties I experienced were ultimately used for good. We’ll look into why some people we’ve expected better from flounder in their own frailties. We’ll also consider how to become beneficiaries of what we’ve learned from others’ errors.

If you have struggled with bad examples in life or ever felt like a victim, this is an empowering and thought-provoking podcast. Expect it to help you move forward in life as you change your perceptions, create new intentions and make a choice for inner happiness on the subject.

Whether you realize it or not, there is a beauty that is waiting to be discovered in you.

We often reduce our ideas about beauty into narrow categories that restrict our awareness and experience of beauty. But there are definitions to beauty that far exceed our imagination and beg for disclosure in and through your life.

Join me in this podcast as we take a look at fuller definitions of beauty and consider how limiting our traditional senses are to perceive it. You’ll come away with an increased consciousness and expectation of what’s yet to be manifested about true and lasting beauty.

Inspiration, empowerment and self-help for anyone seeking to better their own life experience and the experience of others around them.

Then, listen to coach and fellow podcaster Jody Flynn as she shares what makes her happy from the inside out, too.
