Successful but Miserable? Finding Happiness Beyond Societal Expectations

Season #3

Does this ring a bell? Some people seem to be blessed looking in from the outside when in fact they're miserable. Others are miserable because they want to be as externally blessed as others they see, but aren't! In this episode, I dive into the concept of being externally blessed but still miserable, which is essentially when people achieve material success but remain unhappy. I discuss how society often conditions us to follow a certain path that leads to accumulating possessions and reaching milestones that may not necessarily bring lasting happiness or fulfillment. And who's breaking this mold? Gen Z certainly are, as well as Joshua Fields Millburn and Ryan Nicodemus, known together as "The Minimalists". They break this mold by focusing on experiences and living more minimalist lifestyles. We also explore the importance of finding contentment and sustained fulfillment through personal passions rather than chasing material success. Join me as we uncover ways to find happiness beyond societal expectations and create a more fulfilling life.
