Want to be Happy and Successful?

Brene Brown

Want to be happy and successful? Who doesn’t? Author and University of Houston Professor Brene Brown has seven suggestions to help you (and me) live a happier and more successful life:

Note: These suggestion are from Brene’s Ted Talks, and were compiled in an article in Inc. Magazine.


  1. Want to be happy? Stop trying to be perfect.
  2. What would you be glad you did, even if you failed?
  3. To love ourselves and support each other in the process of becoming real is perhaps the greatest single act of daring greatly.
  4. What we know matters, but who we are matters even more.
  5. We risk missing out on joy when we get busy chasing down the extraordinary.
  6. Connection is why we’re here; it is what gives meaning and purpose to our lives.
  7. Authenticity is a collection of choices we have to make every day.
