Without doing the inner self-work that is required for genuine happiness, the external causes of happiness will not matter and will not last. This week, episode 101 of the Positively Living Podcast is about being vs. doing! 

In this episode of the Positively Living Podcast, my guest Manpreet Bawa shares the importance of questioning everything in order to change your outlook on life and the actionable steps you can take right now to find harmony between being and doing. 

Manpreet and I cover the following topics:

  • Doing the self-work that will lead you to genuine happiness. 
  • Distinguishing between being and doing. 
  • Giving yourself space to acknowledge your emotions and connect with yourself so you can respond with intention. 
  • Letting your mind help you without taking control over you. 
  • The one question to ask yourself in order to find the harmony between being and doing.

Strive to be intentional and purposeful in your life and to move forward seeking meaning in all that you do and you’ll be more satisfied, less stressed, and more focused on what you want to be and do.
