Why Monks Are Happy And Billionaires Are Often Not
Last week, Sophia was overtired and started to have a temper tantrum. She told us that the only thing that can make her stop crying and cure her sadness was a new toy. Of course, we all know that getting Sophia a toy would not lead to her everlasting happiness, but in this episode Eva really dives into WHY money and the material possessions it can buy can never guarantee your happiness. Eva borrows some great lessons from Jay Shetty’s new book Think Like A Monk. Show notes at DreamBigPodcast.com/227
How Kamala Harris turned IMPOSSIBLE into I’M POSSIBLE
As parents, we have worked very hard to eliminate phrases like “That’s impossible” from our kids’ vocabulary. Turns out with the word IMPOSSIBLE -- you can just add a space and an apostrophe, and IMPOSSIBLE becomes I’M POSSIBLE. This idea certainly hit home with the US election earlier this month, in which Kamala Harris became the first woman and person of color to be elected Vice President. Eva shares her feelings about believing that anything is possible. Show notes at DreamBigPodcast.com/226

James Lawrence, The Iron Cowboy, On Your Most Underrated Superpower!
The Iron Cowboy is back on the Dream Big Podcast! James Lawrence earned his nickname by completing 50 Ironman triathlons, in 50 days, in each of the 50 United States. James posted the following quote on his Instagram earlier this year: “Tolerance for Monotony is a very underrated superpower.” Eva asked us what the quote meant, and we said: “Well you know James!
