A Way of Thinking

01-11-2023 • 1 hr 8 mins

I'm so excited to introduce our guest today, Gill Hasson. She's not just an author and coach but a true expert in the art of helping individuals experience greater happiness, calmness, and confidence. Throughout the episode Gill imparts practical insights on how to avoid dwelling on the past or succumbing to future anxieties. Plus, we explore the art of embracing healthier thought patterns by delving into the practices of mindfulness, the cultivation of resilience, and the intentional steps that propel us forward with a profound sense of purpose and optimism.

Topics discussed in this episode:

[00:07:52] - Recognizing the positive aspects of ‘negative’ emotions, such as jealousy, anger, guilt, or regret.

[00:13:39] - Setting big goals and breaking them down into manageable steps.

[00:19:03] - Adopting an abundance rather than a scarcity mindset

[01:02:36] - The psychological benefits of social connection and contributing to your community

Quotes from Episode:

"I wrote a book about happiness, and all the research I examined revealed that little has changed since the time of Aristotle, who recognized over 2,000 years ago that to be happy, one must enjoy small pleasures and also have a purpose."

"Why do some people move forward while others can't? Research indicates that those with resilience and a positive mindset tend to view themselves as survivors rather than victims in tough situations. These people share characteristics such as seeking support, contributing to others, or feeling that they have a connection with something bigger and more eternal than themselves."
