Jun 5, 2018

I often find myself mumbling a certain mantra over and over. Happiness is a choice.

 

Happiness. is. a. choice.

 

Even though this isn’t always easy or clear, I believe it to be true and today I get the pleasure of chatting with Rochelle Gapere. Rochelle is an attornery, happiness coach, and author. On today's show we chat about her new book where she shares great tips and advice on how to choose happy thoughts through all of life's ups and downs.

 

What you’ll learn:

  • How Rochelle ended up in Medicare Law
  • On how her book developed naturally
  • What a “happy” life means
  • How to balance negative emotions with happiness
  • How to use time management to manage frustrations
  • How to discern lasting happiness from fleeting happiness
  • The power of good lists
  • The importance of visualizing your future self
  • Strategies for balancing staying present and preparing for the future
  • Links between productivity and happiness

 

Best Advice for Finding Happiness

“Challenge yourself to the things outside of the law so that you can expand your horizons and open your mind.”

 

“You don’t have to get bogged down in one lane, you can do more than one thing.”

 

“Abundance and happiness are our birth right.”
