An Action Plan for Dreamers is a weekly 20-minute podcast where we provide practical and actionable advice about what it takes to create the life you crave. It’s short enough to listen on your commute or coffee break and contains practical steps you can take to move closer to your dream life.
“People are just as happy as they make up their minds to be.” ~ Abraham Lincoln
Many of us believe that happiness is a result of what happens to us each day and put a lot of the responsibility on outside forces. In this episode we confront this idea head-on and dispel these concepts in the process:
- Equating happiness to what other people have in their lives
- Waiting for things to be perfect to enjoy the life we have
- Blaming others / taking responsibility for others
Along with our guest, Britt Reints, we discuss how to get more happiness in your life by choosing to focus on yourself more and realizing what makes you most happy. In the process you’ll learn how to stop letting others determine/influence your emotions. In the process we’ll provide you actions you can take now to start leading a happier life.
Our guest today began her own happiness journey after a diagnosis of depression and a concerted effort to blow up her marriage. Countless hours of therapy and a 10-month family road trip in an RV helped Britt Reints redefine happiness on her own terms. Now, she writes and speaks to others about how they, too, can become happier, more grateful, and more confident in their own abilities to figure out what works for them. You can find more about Britt and her new book, An Amateur’s Guide to the Pursuit of Happiness, at InPursuitofHappiness.net.
