Finding Happiness: “Things Are Soulless”

February 17, 2016

One evening, I was sitting in a meeting with several hundred people in attendance. As I listened to the speakers and heard their stories, I was touched. Thoughts of “Things that Matter” started to flood my mind. After the meeting, as I was driving home, I decided to quickly stop by the studio and record what was on my mind. The message in this video has to do with HAPPINESS. Where does happiness come from? What will bring you more happiness and peace? All too often we seek after superficial things as the source of happiness - but it’s an illusion.


People chase after the things of this world only to find that they are living empty lives. Ultimately, people want to be happy, but often they are looking in the wrong places. Below are a few “truths” I share in this video:



“Things Are Soulless”

  • Anchor yourself to higher values

  • As you chase your dreams, don’t lose sight of what is most important

  • Be humble

  • Be quick to forgive and forget

  • Love and serve people

  • Say, “I love you!“ more often

  • Be HAPPY!
