In this episode, I had the honor and joy of connecting with Rob Mack. Rob is an Ivy League-Educated, Positive Psychology Expert, Celebrity Happiness Coach, Published Author, and Television Host & Producer. He is also a kind, authentic and magical soul.
Rob shares about his own spiritual awakening, and how he went from being suicidal to a world-renowned happiness expert. We discussed why happiness is an inside job and some of the tools that Rob uses to support clients on living in joy. I learned so much from this conversation, and I know you will too!
- Happiness is an inside job. Research in positive psychology shows that no more than 10% of happiness can be attributed to external factors.
- Happiness is your natural state of being. The trick is to learn how to return to that natural state.
- The difference between happy and unhappy people is not about the thoughts in their heads, but their relationships to those thoughts. Happy people have learned not to take their minds too seriously.
- What we view as the truth is at best an approximation of universal wisdom. And our perception of a situation as good or bad, is a judgment and not the truth.
- Needing nothing attracts everything. Desire can block happiness because it creates a desperate need of seeking something outside of yourself to bring you happiness. The more we release attachment to external things for our sense of well being, the more our innate state of well being can begin to attract in that which will truly bring us joy.
- There’s a difference between “heart happy” and “head happy.” Things and experiences that feel our soul, are often different from the things and experiences we think will make us happy.
- Intuition comes as heart whispers. To hear them, we must quiet our mind
Trigger Warning: suicidal ideation and self-harm (4:30 – 6:10).
