Wisdom from Some of our Experts
Here's what's going on with our expert bloggers:
1) The Power of Getting Real
Motivational speaker, Mike Robbins, invites you to try the "If You Really Knew Me" exercise: In a small group, give each person a minute or two to complete the sentence, "If you really knew me, you'd know…," with things that are real, vulnerable, and below the surface (thoughts, feelings, dreams, insecurities, opinions, experiences, passions, challenges, and so on). Getting real is "one of the most meaningful, rewarding, and connective experiences we can have with other human beings," says Robbins. Read more here.
2) 5000 Synapses in the Width of a Hair

3) Coming Out of Survival: The Path
Imagine there is such a thing called happiness and it's not just a fleeting moments or isolated incidents.
Imagine Joy. Pure immense Joy.
Imagine living from a place of inspiration, not desperation and all the time.
Imagine knowing and understanding how Life really works and living it.
