Privately Inspired People

I love my work at Happy Living!

For the last eleven months or so, I’ve been preparing an agenda and leading thought-provoking discussions with Privately Inspired People twice a month. This is an invitation-only group that we created to provide an environment full of ideas, encouragement, and support to help one another take inspired action to live our one wild and precious life to its fullest, because…

As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.

Proverbs 27:17 

Becoming Really, Truly, Deeply Happy

The focus of our meeting on Thursday, November 16, 2023, is Becoming Really, Truly, Deeply Happy.

I have a gift for you. It’s called Making Your Mark of Significance and I wrote it for the specific purpose of helping you become really, truly, deeply happy. In it, I share SEVEN FOUNDATIONS that helped me do FOUR THINGS that helped me create a roadmap for my life and generate all the fuel I’ve needed to happily travel along the unique and distinctive journey to the life of my dreams.

And I have good news about this gift!

It’s free. Absolutely free for you to download right now.

It’s mini. Designed to be read on your cell phone. Stored on your cell phone. And used as a reference and for encouragement whenever and wherever you need it.

It’s mighty. If you learn the ideas in this book. And you reflect on what they mean for you and your life. And then, you take action to reshape your life with them. Yes, if you learn, reflect, and act on the ideas in this little book, you will become really, truly, deeply happy. And that’s a mighty thing indeed!

Our group will be spending our time together discussing these four aspects of becoming really, truly, deeply happy.

  1. Dream Big, Live Bold
  2. Navigating the Unknown
  3. Foundations of Happy
  4. The Magic of Giving

ONE | Dream Big, Live Bold. Picture your ultimate life—a grand, seven-block pyramid with your Mark of Significance sitting atop Love and Adventure, which are resting on a strong foundation of Physical, Mental, Financial, and Spiritual fitness. Working through this book will guide you to your unique and distinct destination, where big dreams unfold. #DreamLife #UltimateLife #DreamBig #LiveBold

TWO | Navigating the Unknown. The journey to your ultimate life is chockful of ups and downs, successes and failures, and plenty of unexpected surprises, good ones and bad. The question is not if you’ll face roadblocks and hard choices with unknown outcomes, it’s if you’ll have the determination and resilience to boldly travel right through them. I wrote this book to help you understand that stepping into the land of unknown outcomes is how you evolve into the fully realized and optimized person you are meant to be. #Determination #Resilience #PersonalEvolution #Optimization

THREE | Foundations of Happy. That beautiful pyramid of your ultimate life has three levels. Level one is a strong foundation of Power, physical, mental, financial, and spiritual power. Level two is all about the discovery of Purpose, your reason for being on this planet. On top sits the pinnacle: living a life of Significance, the unique and distinct life that you and only you were meant to live. I offer this book to help stimulate ideas about the life you were meant to live, or to construct a framework for reflecting on what is most important to you, or to offer as a template that may help you to design your own Foundations of Happy that’ll be your roadmap to your absolute best life. #PersonalPower #WhatsYourPurpose #LifeOfSignificance #Ikigai

FOUR | The Magic of Giving. I define significance as doing work you love, with people you love, in places you love, and creating something of value for others. Doing work you love, with people you love, in places you love is awesome. Sounds like the ultimate life, doesn’t it? But I want even more for you because I’ve learned that the real MAGIC of life comes from that fourth element of ‘Significance’ “doing work that creates value for others”. The real MAGIC of life comes when I’m giving from living in my purpose. That’s what I want for you. And that’s why I’m offering you this free mini-but-mighty guidebook to your absolute best life. #MagicOfGiving #GivingMatters #MagicOfLife

In preparation for our meetings, I generally recommend that each member ponders over a quote or a few and does a little bit of light homework (reading a blog post or two and sometimes viewing a video, too). This is the prep work for our Novermber 16, 2023 meeting.
