How to Succeed? Be More of You

Hey, it’s Amy Newmark with your Chicken Soup for the Soul, and today I’m going to continue sharing stories with you from our newest book, Chicken Soup for the Soul: Your 10 Keys to Happiness. This is a collection of stories that illustrate what I believe are the ten keys to happiness based on my reading of tens of thousands of personal, revealing stories from our writers. I’ve already talked about the power of gratitude and the power of forgiveness to change your life on this podcast, as well as volunteering, having less stuff, making me time, and stepping outside your comfort zone. Today I want to talk about another one of my ten keys to happiness, and that is to Be Yourself—be more of you instead of trying to be like someone else. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit
