LinkedIn CEO Jeff Weiner believes that success, at least in the conventional sense, can be fleeting. However, happiness is worth striving for. It's advice he received from his mentor Ray Chambers, a Wall Street giant who pioneered the leveraged buyout, and who later walked away from financial success to study happiness and pursue a life of philanthropy.

Here, Jeff shares Ray's five principles of happiness that have propelled him to become the transformative leader he is today. "The first is being in the moment," Jeff says. "The second is that it's better to be loving than to be right. The third is that you should be a spectator to your own thoughts, especially when you become emotional, which is fundamental to compassion. The fourth is to be grateful for at least one thing every day. And the fifth is to be of service to others, to help others every chance you get."
