#119 Shhhhh "10% Happier" By Dan Harris

3/1/2018
More
www.feelgoodenglish.com To start this episode, let me ask you something. Do you have a voice inside your head? Like, do you have “something” inside of you that speaks to you? As weird as that sounds, I bet you do. And I’m not talking about “hearing voices” in your head, like a crazy person might, but just that self-talk we all have that guides us, or at least tries really hard to guide us. It’s that voice inside us that starts having a conversation as soon as we open our eyes in the...

Get the transcript at www.feelgoodenglish.com Today I have some ideas from a very interesting book called “Predictably Irrational” by Dan Ariely.

Through research and study, the author has found that a lot of this irrational behavior is also predictable, which means there are very human, and natural reasons we behave this way.

Are you a leader or a follower? Are you good at sports? And where did those beliefs come from? A former teacher, your friends who have labeled you a certain way, or maybe simply from yourself?

Go premium at www.feelgoodenglish.com/go We as humans love the stories of incredible successes. Stories of people doing things that seem impossible.

And it seems that it’s exactly because their life becomes limited that their life is transformed. It’s as if going through something traumatic is the...
