May 21, 2015 - LIVING A RICHER LIFE ~ Life Changing Talk Radio
THEME: Finding Your Path to Personal Fulfillment
INTERVIEW GUEST: Sue Batton Leonard
Sue Leonard is an Author, Writer and Blogger. She is the Founder and President of Cornerstone Fulfillment Service, LLC --- a company specializing in e-commerce and e-marketing for independent publishers since 1998. She is the author of the 3-time award winning memoir, titled, Gift of a Lifetime: Finding Fulfilling Things in the Unexpected.
THIS WEEK’S MESSAGE:
As most of us have learned, we cannot find happiness by making it our goal. Happiness is the unintended benefit of pursuing personal dreams and living true to yourself. When you proactively connect the person you are with the things that you choose to do, a deep sense of fulfillment will emerge. Fulfillment is a form of happiness, or satisfaction, that is the direct result of fully developing your abilities or character. Personal fulfilment is best defined as the achievement of life goals which are important to you, in contrast to the goals of society or even your family. Personal fulfilment is an ongoing journey for most of us. They journey commences when we start becoming conscious of ourselves, our surroundings and our past. But, for many of us, finding the right path to this level of consciousness and fulfilment is a challenge. Sometimes finding a path to fulfillment can be buried in the unexpected. How can you find your path to personal fulfillment?
