TMHS 349: The Microbiome-Emotion Connection & The Truth About Antidepressants - With Guest Dr. Jillian Teta

  • TMHS 234: Increase Your Sense Of Value And Stop Postponing Happiness – With Guest Lisa Nichols

    Scientist believe that approximately 50 percent of our happiness is genetically predetermined, while 10 percent is due to life circumstances, and 40 percent is the result of our own personal outlook. Whether or not you believe in genetic determinism, none of us can argue that our personal outlook (and in many ways our life circumstances) are within the power of our own hands to change.

    Why, then, is happiness at a deficit today? With so much connection and so much opportunity, why has happiness become the exception and not the rule? There’s a relatively new field of science focusing on positive psychology and the underpinnings of what creates happiness from us. But nothing compares to the education that we get from someone who’s cracked the code on happiness personally. It’s the stories of success that really speak to hearts, and it’s the real world tools that help us to put what we learn into action.

    Today you’re going to hear one of the most outstanding stories of how we can achieve happiness and success no matter what our circumstances have looked like. This person is an absolute superstar in so many different domains of personal development. She’s so good at it because she has been through it. I mean, really through it. And by braving her path, she’s figured out a thing or 20 that’s going to make an impact on your life for many years to come. Grateful, honored, and excited to share with you the incredible Lisa Nichols. Enjoy!

    In this episode you’ll discover:

    • Why being broke is easier than being broken.
    • Why we need to welcome the things that makes us decide.
    • What it means to have “gifts wrapped in sandpaper.”
    • How to stop postponing your happiness.
    • Three “buckets” we can put our experiences in to bring us more fulfillment and success.
    • How having nothing to hide can free you from a lot of stress (and why the truth is sexy!).
    • How to increase our sense of value within ourselves (this is important!).
    • The life-threatening challenges that led Lisa to make one of the toughest decisions of her life.
    • Why shame can be one of the toughest burdens to carry.
    • How Lisa brings her healthy lifestyle with her (and how she changed the culture for the people around her).
    • Why it’s important to serve from your overflow.
    • How good health spills over into other areas of your life in a positive way.
    • Why it’s a MUST to “live like you know it“.
    • What simple exercise we can do to help flush out the false things we believe about ourselves.

I have your Sleep Smarter book and it has been a big help. However, your episode with Lisa Nichols brought me to tears several times. She is truly inspirational and gives hope which so many folks need now, especially with the climate of fear and distrust being perpetuated by some folks. I am going to try the exercise she suggested. Thanks so much for your show. It is full of hope and humor and is all about being proactive and helping yourself which Lisa so ably demonstrated.
