What Are You Pursuing?

In Happiness on April 26, 2011 by thefhpblog Tagged: , ,

In the fabulous movie The Pursuit of Happyness, Will Smith plays real life Chris Gardner.  As a struggling salesman, he takes custody of his son as he’s poised to begin a life-changing professional endeavor.  There are a lot of incredible messages in this movie and I highly recommend it if you’ve never seen it.

As you begin to dive into your personal financial happyness journey, I wanted to share this clip with you.

What do you think? What are you REALLY pursuing?  I’d love to hear your comments and thoughts.

Out of your 100% of happiness, this type of searching (also known as Conditions of Living) is only responsible for 7-8% of your overall happiness!

A Man That Lost His Life’s Savings Inspired Me

In Mindset on April 11, 2011 by thefhpblog Tagged: , , ,

Matt Weinstein, a man that lost his life’s savings in Bernie’s Madaoff’s notorius scam inspired me today in his speech “What Bernie Madoff Couldn’t Steal From Me”

Well not the fact that he lost his life’s savings as much as his reaction to what happened.
