Build The Life You Want – Episode 2

In Episode Two of the Build the Life You Want Super Soul Podcast, Oprah and Arthur C. Brooks, co-authors of the #1 New York Times bestseller “Build the Life You Want,” take questions from readers who are curious how to make their own lives happier with the science-based research and actionable practices from the book. Arthur Brooks explains that living a happier life starts with focusing less on yourself by saying, “Your load is lightened when you’re helping another person. You’re going to draw love to yourself when you actually give it.” Oprah and Arthur C. Brooks also talk to readers who are struggling with envy and “the disease to please” as well as the sometimes difficult “Family Pillar of Happiness.” Arthur C. Brooks has advice on how to address what he calls the one-directional “emotional ATM” in families and why one of the hardest challenges with loved ones is forgiveness.
