– bliss is a state of being
– bliss is not something you chase
– be happy with life on life’s terms
– strive to surpass the conditions of your life
– we all have the opportunity to manifest bliss through meditation and being fully present in the moment
– live in the moment
– practice to be in the moment
– feed your soul, instead of your ego
– your pursuit of inner peace is more important that any external or material possession
– practice an attitude of gratitude
– gratitude helps us stay rooted in the now

091 Ron Carucci

The loss of Ron’s brother and his upcoming TED talk were converging in the same moment. He didn’t know how we was going to honor both at the same time. Ron asked for practical, emotional and spiritual assistance, so that neither of these moments got too lost in the other. His family buoyed him, came along side of him and saw the importance of grieving, managing loss and the importance of celebrating a triumphant accomplishment. This enabled Ron to participate in both moments. He shares these powerful nuggets of life wisdom:

– accept your own limitations
– you have to ask for what you need
– seek a community around you for the triumphs and the tragedies
– surround yourself with people to join, care and set boundaries for you
– you get do-overs
– life gives you second chances
– too often we forfeit the opportunity for others to be our heroes
– sometimes we downplay our successes or triumphs
– allow others to share in the joy of your triumphs and successes
– we need others to narrate our transformations
– ask others to join you to narrate your life story and be intentional about what you want the outcome to be
– strive to be a hero, not a spectator, in your own life story

Ron Carucci has a thirty-year track record helping executives tackle challenges of strategy, organization, and leadership — from start-ups to Fortune 10s, non-profits to heads-of-state, turn-arounds to new markets and strategies, overhauling leadership and culture to re-designing for growth. With experience in more than 25 countries on 4 continents, he helps organizations articulate strategies that lead to accelerated growth, and then designs programs to execute those strategies. The best-selling author of eight books, including the recent Amazon #1 Rising to Power, Ron is a regular contributor to the Harvard Business Review, where Navalent’s work on leadership was named one of 2016’s management ideas that mattered most. He is also a regular contributor to Forbes, and a two-time TEDx speaker. His work’s been featured in Fortune, CEO Magazine, Inc., BusinessInsider, MSNBC, Business Week, and Smart Business.
