03 Jun A Book To Help You Live a Life of Purpose
I am beginning to see a shift in conscious in America; and for the better. People are realizing that money, power, and fame will not bring them happiness and choosing to live a life of meaning and purpose. For example, folks are beginning to spend more on experiences as opposed to things. People are asking questions like “what really matters?” and “what does success look like to me?” If you are like me, and constantly asking yourself these questions I highly suggest you read my bud Jason Wachob’s book Wellth: How I Learned to Build a Life, Not a Resume.
Jason is a former Columbia Basketball Player, turned Wall Street Trader, to CEO of one of my most popular wellness blogs in the world mindbodygreen. Here are a few of my favorite quotes from the book:
“A master in the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his education and his recreation, his love and his religion. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence through whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. To him, he is always doing both.”-Pearsall Jacks
“Gratitude is the only thing that will ever make you happy. Without a doubt, if you can master the art of feeling and expressing gratitude on a daily basis, then you will have mastered happiness. It’s that simple: more gratitude equals more happiness.”-Jason Wachob
“For me, it took years and years. I think your twenties are all about working very hard and learning and building skills, while taking an inventory of what you like and don’t like-essentially figuring out who you are. In your thirties, you start to know who you are, and you begin to build a life or a career around your identity. In your forties, you can try to hone your career focus so it’s more closely aligned with your passion”-Jason Wachob
