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

Are you defending a dogma, a point of view or “-ism” that has become insufficient, obsolete or even discredited? If you have been struggling with an outmoded belief system established by an external authority that is no longer speaking truth to you, it may be time to step into the light.

 

This is a self-help episode to help you find harmony, integration and greater peace from within. Listen and let go of what you no longer can uphold as reality while increasing your happiness and emotional intelligence. Allow what truly resonates within you to help reshape your world view.

I'm not referring to your official job title, but to an identity that best describes the essence and fullness of who you truly are.

Most of us are accustomed to carrying limited ways of identifying ourselves, staying carefully and rigidly within the lines of social and professional constructs. Yet each of us carries attributes that make us uniquely rich in character, talents and more. As we begin to think of ourselves in outside-the-box ways, we set ourselves free to shine in full bloom and inspire others to bring out their own true colors, too.

If you are seeking a richer and more authentic life, this is a great listen for you to further manifest some of your inner dreams and aspirations.
