This is a rebroadcast of my recent on air interview with Dr. Anna Shouse. The focus of the talk is on a new paradigm of success and how this new perspective influences one's recovery from addiction (and how all of us, in recovery or not, define success). Comparing ourselves to others while striving to meet unrealistic outer demands robs us of peace of mind and self-worth, and can even de-rail recovery.

What is the definition of success? Unfortunately, our society defines success for us, and as we strive to meet the expectations of our society we lose ourselves and our sense of inner peace. In this brief podcast I provide 4 tips on how to shift our perspective so that we can be successful and maintain our inner peace. Here's a quote from my podcast: "Therefore, I suggest that each of us change our perspective on success from one based on societal objectivity with its comparison to others, to a perspective wherein we strive to obtain success as defined by our values, thereby leading us toward inner peace, happiness and self-worth."

Today is the start of Winter, a favorite season of mine! Yet, for many of us we feel that the "setting sun" of Winter in ourselves will not return; that our happiness and peace will never return; that we will live in "darkness" forever. Our personal internal fear is not unlike the external fear of our ancestors. As was true with our ancestors is also true for ourselves; the "sun" will rise once again! In this podcast I talk about what we can learn from our ancestors who didn't wait for the eternal darkness, rather, they took action and did all they could to tackle their fear and to reverse what they felt was inevitable. I list 5 steps we can take to bring the light back into our lives.
