Show Notes

Episode highlights…

  • The Six Habits that will allow you to live happiness rather than pursuing happiness
  • Habit 1 – Kindness (the way we treat ourselves in action, thoughts and deeds)
  • Habit 2 – Acceptance (unconditional love for ourselves, respect and appreciation)
  • Habit 3 – Gratitude (the lenses through which we view the world)
  • Habit 4 – Presence (living in the present moment to experience massive pleasure)
  • Habit 5 – Goodness (the habit of good energy self-management)
  • Habit 6 – Intention (getting ultra-clear with purpose)
  • You have to work on yourself in order to receive joy
  • It’s important to understand the origins of your self-beliefs or beliefs about the world and how it works
  • Working on yourself is not always easy or pretty – it’s often hard and messy
  • Even mastering the Six Habits doesn’t prevent getting punched in the face, but you can more quickly bounce back
  • Presence is about enjoyment, pleasure and growth
  • Choosing presence means allowing ourselves to fully feel our emotions (e.g. choose to feel the pain or the grief)
  • Dump the labels of good and bad (and similar labels and value judgments)
  • Ways you rob yourself of energy that’s not available for the things you desire
  • Self-care is often about setting boundaries
  • Beware the many ways we’ve been socialized
  • The root cause of joy is in your mental habits and you have to be willing to do the work to transform your habits and beliefs
