We survived! As Barry Manilow sang:
Jon and I completed the Spartan Super race in Monterey yesterday, and we talk about it in this special edition of the Accountability Call Podcast.
We ran/walked/hiked 8.5 miles and completed 28 obstacles (or did 30 burpees for the few obstacles we didn’t complete). It was a great challenge for both of us, and talking about it got us to think about happiness and appreciation.
We are both believers of happiness coming from the inside, or happiness leading to success instead of success leading to happiness. There is a great book called The Happiness Advantage by Shaun Achor, which I recommend highly.
These three quotes kind of sum up our current thoughts on happiness:
- “Be happy and the reason will appear.”
- “Being happy doesn’t mean everything’s perfect. It means you’ve decided to look beyond the imperfections.”
- “When you love what you have, you have everything you need.”
We hope you enjoy the episode!
