Welcome to this week’s episode of What Happens in Between where Shirin Eskandani, a certified life coach and alchemist, busts the myth around building your dream life. It’s easy to constantly look to the next big thing to finally make you feel fulfilled. But the truth is, satisfaction and fulfillment live in the present, in what’s happening now. Shirin helps us to reframe how we think about purpose, joy, and dreams. It’s not what you want or when you get there, it’s who you are being in this process of making your dream come true. Are you stressed? Are you anxious? Are you aligned with your values? Are you happy? Does what you’re doing bring you joy? Join us on today’s episode as we uncover the truth behind “happiness” and the steps to make it sustainable.
All our lives we’re constantly looking to the next big thing to feel that sense of fulfillment. Fulfillment lives in the present in what’s happening now. Shirin helps us to reframe how we think about purpose and goal setting. It’s not what you want or when you get there, it’s who you are being in this process of making your dream come true.
News flash: You get to live your dream life as you have your dream life! You think you’ll be happy when you find your partner; when you buy your dream home; when you get that promotion. But the goal post will keep moving, and you’ll get what you wanted and realize you still don’t feel joyful or fulfilled.
Shirin shows us the power of instead focusing on the person we are while we’re building our dream life. Join us on today’s episode as we uncover the truth behind happiness and the steps to make it sustainable.
