The world tries to tell us we will never be happy unless we accumulate more stuff, that we will never be good enough so why try, and that our success is measured by the size of our bank accounts. And that's just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the bad guidance it doles out! Following this path leads to a life of misery and frustration. We need to turn away from what the world tells us and lead a life filled with purpose. But how? Kaiser Johnson joins me this week to discuss what he has discovered in his own life and how we can change ours for the better as well.
