Moneeka Sawyer

“Success” is a pretty loaded word – and the definition is really personal to each of us. What does success mean to you? 

On today’s podcast, I talk with Moneeka Sawyer, author of Choose Bliss: The Power and Practice of Joy and Contentment, who redefines success (and specifically financial success) and how it ties into our happiness. Moneeka may be one of the most blissful people you’ll ever meet! 

Today, Moneeka joins us to define what BLISS really is, how money can make a difference (and when it doesn’t), and how to own your feelings—good and bad—while still committing authentically to your happiness.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • How Moneeka arrived at the idea of bliss after her traumatic childhood and a life-changing car accident – and how her recovery led her to the career she has today.
  • Why we’re hard-wired to react negatively to things – and Moneeka’s unique process for interrupting unnecessary and destructive thought patterns.
  • The reason bliss and adversity aren’t mutually exclusive – and the motto Moneeka uses to reconcile this.
  • Why creating wealth helps to create bliss, but you don’t need to be rich in order to be happy. 

MONEEKA SAWYER SAID IT…

Bliss is not just being happy. It’s a much deeper sense of joy and contentment and the absolute confidence that you can handle anything that comes your way.” – Moneeka Sawyer

I don’t know whether it’s fortunate or unfortunate but money is our transactional way of creating life and it creates our future. It creates our possibilities.” – Moneeka Sawyer
