In this episode, Brendon teaches…

  • What “Post-Achievement Dissatisfaction” is how it can lead to an unfulfilling life.
  • Identifying the core four desires and how they impact your overall happiness and fulfillment in life. 
  • How striving for aliveness represents the yearning to experience life more fully, to feel alive and in flow, beyond material success.
  • The importance of connection and the significance of deep and meaningful connections with loved ones, family, and friends.
