1. Episode 21: Darrin Tulley & Live Your Possible: Ignite Your Happy, Authentic Self and Live a Fulfilling Life Rooted in Joy, Inclusion, Love and Possibilities! John M Jaramillo 1:28:41

For this episode, Darrin walks me through happiness, joy, wonder, and possibilities — all sensations we seem to have lost as adults.

The foundation of his message and book is his own realization that he was “upside-down,” giving more priority as an executive to the numbers and performance of the business than the people and humanity behind it.

As much as it’s been the case with episodes of The Book Leads so far, this conversation is timely, chock full of reminders we should all heed so that we can find ourselves again. Specifically, in this episode, it’s about regaining a true sense of happiness, similar to that of when we were children. He believes there’s no reason we can’t carry out the responsibilities of adulting without maintaining our inner child’s sense of possibilities.

Some highlights from this episode:

— Everything we do is connected (as also mentioned in my last episode w/Mboone Umbima).

— The more we know to look for and practice them, the more we can find moments of joy and happiness.

— Darrin and I agree whole-heartedly about what has been programmed out of us as adults.

The MAIN QUESTION that underlies my conversation with Darrin is, Are you working toward living what’s possible, reaching a full life by keeping an eye out for joy and happiness?
