EP14: The Inside Out Approach to Happiness with Parnaz Esheen
Everyone wants to be happy. The fact is, the majority of people aren’t. And, they aren’t because they are chasing happiness, believing it’s found in material objects, the latest devices and tech.
The reality is that true happiness is found within us and in this episode of the Grow2Gether podcast, we’re joined by valued Grow2Gether community member and personal development blogger Parnaz Esheen as we discuss the inside out approach to happiness – NOT the outside in – which again most people are chasing.
We also talk about Parnaz’s personal development journey, the lessons she has learnt on the way and why self-awareness is key to growth yet most peoples ego’s get in the way and keep them stuck.
Top points from this episode:
- Most people chase happiness and never find it because they are approaching it with an outside-in approach, instead of an inside out approach. This leads to always chasing new gadgets, people and trying to keep up with the Joneses.
- Sharing your vulnerabilities and challenges isn’t as scary as it seems and can lead to building amazing new connections with like-minded people from all over the world. Of course, you’ll get haters – the key is just not to focus there.
- Self-awareness is the number 1 key to growth yet often peoples ego’s get in the way. When this happens having humility is crucial to stop and notice what you’re doing is not working or serving you.
- Developing a growth and a positive mindset is key in all walks of life. If you’re feeding your mind with negative or the wrong thoughts you’ll never going to be happy
- Plus, much much more!
