DTD #27: Gratitude, Leadership, & Breathing Deeply

If you focus on what you lack, you'll lose what you have. If you focus on what you have, you'll gain what you lack. 

Greg McKeown, the author of Essentialism, describes this as one of his key life principles. His recent appearance on the Modern Wisdom podcast as well as Aubrey Marcus's latest podcast with leadership expert Simon Sinek gave us an abundance of interesting ideas to discuss. Some of our favorites we explore in the episode are:

  • Are you rushing through your life?
  • Why taking six deep breaths before dinner is a good idea
  • How gratitude is the key to unlocking a better life
  • Why it's impossible to feel fear, anger, guilt, or shame while in a grateful state
  • How gratitude changes your brain (enter reticular activating system)
  • Saying one thing you are grateful for after every time you complain
  • The 1,000 mistake rule

And much more!

Join us for an upbeat episode full of laughter and learning.
