Summary:

In this episode, Dan reminds us that success is NOT just about how much money you earn. Success is defined differently from one person to the next. Once we realize we are on a journey to finding WORTHWHILE goals and begin to pursue these goals—we will find ourselves closer and closer to finding true fulfillment and success. Listen as Dan lists possible reasons we’re not happy EVEN if we’ve found “success” and what it means to put-on a mindset of growth. You’ll also hear why staying in your comfort zone may be working against you.

    First off, I am happy with my job, very happy. Dan, thanks for your counsel on staying with my job, while keeping my options open on side jobs etc. Love you and your family, you mean the world to me. 🙂

    Next, as far as always looking for free stuff, I do enjoy finding good deals on things, and even like something free every once in a while. However, I certainly don’t look to the government for free stuff. Because I know that every free thing I get from the government, means someone who needs it worse than I will go without. There are good uses for the government, but it certainly isn’t solely for free stuff. Real life happens better outside the walls of the White House.
