Yesterday we let you know we would have a new video for you from Gerry Hussey today – his Sunday afternoon WellFest talk on the keys to self-discovery and happiness.
It was completely and utterly inspiring (and I don’t ever write those words without proper cause for them) and incredibly relevant for anyone who is currently going through cancer, living with cancer or after cancer (or any other major life-altering event).
Self-discovery and happiness
In this video, Gerry shares with us six keys for self-discovery and happiness. He discusses the following concepts alongside anecdotes, research and personal experience:
- Stop judging yourself – self-acceptance is key to lifelong happiness
- Make sure you spend your time the way that you want to – what are you filling your life with?
- Live in the present – not the past or the future
- We cannot control what happens to us in life, but we can control our response
- Find your why in life. When you have a why, you will find a how
- Change your language – the words you use are the seeds that grow your tomorrow
I can’t wait to watch it again myself. And share it with everyone, and I mean everyone, I know. It was excellent. Truly powerful and emotional stuff. There were tears in the eyes of many of the audience as Gerry spoke and just wait until you see the ending! I really hope you enjoy it just as much as we did.
