I am ecstatic to introduce you to this week’s guest, Rob Mack. Rob is an ivy-league-educated Celebrity Happiness Coach, Positive Psychology Expert, Published Author, and TV Host/Personality. He just exudes peacefulness and while it looks like it comes naturally to him, he works hard at it.

Rob joins me to talk about prioritizing peace, happiness, love and joy and how to focus on feeling better. We also talk about negativity bias, being comfortable with our uncomfortableness, being stuck in an identity story and some ways to let it go.  Rob is such a delight. And, y’all, he is a very snappy dresser too!

In this episode you’ll hear:

  • Rob shares his story of suffering with depression and attempting suicide (11 minutes and 35 seconds)
  • Micro-meditations (for super, busy women) (17:15)
  • Some ways to build optimism, resilience, and real confidence (24:40)
  • Negativity bias and why we tolerate being unhappy (26:45)
  • Being stuck in an identity story and how to reframe it and let it go (31:04)

Over the last few months I’ve had the complete honor of taking a small group of women through life changing work. That group is The Mentorship and coming up in 2019 I’ll be offering it again with some slight variations. Long story short, it’s only taken me 8 years to realize that facilitating these types of groups (small, intimate, with deep transformational work) is my zone of genius. ?

The women in The Mentorship are setting boundaries, speaking up for themselves, and practicing self-compassion (instead of beating themselves up or comparing and depairing). They are starting new businesses, or getting better jobs. They are cheering each other on and themselves. They are making rich, new friendships and asking for help. Basically, they are living their version of their kick-ass life.

A new group is rolling out in the new year, which includes a two-day workshop retreat here at my house in North Carolina. (!!!) We don’t have a page up just yet, but if you want to be one of the first (I’m limiting the amount of women who can come in), so if you want an application and a call with me to see if it’s for you, simply send an email to: support(at)https://andreaowen.com and Emily will help you out.
