In this episode, Cheddy and Michelle discuss:

  • How we assign the responsibility for our happiness to things outside of us.
  • We have more control over our emotions than we realize, acknowledge, or admit.
  • Consumerism relies on us believing the “I’ll be happy when…” lie.



Key takeaways:

  • Michelle explains how Dr. Seuss’ book The Sneetches illustrates the “I’ll be happy when…” lie and how it can playout in our lives.
  • The, “I’ll be happy when…” lie, keeps us dissatisfied and always looking for the thing that will make us happy..
  • Oftentimes the thing we thought would make us happy only provides a feeling of happiness for a short period of time. 
  • We are responsible for our happiness, regardless of the circumstances.
  • We are meaning-making machines.
