#28 - Where Happiness Begins...


“Happiness begins where selfishness ends.”

John Wooden, the legendary UCLA basketball coach and all-around leadership guru made this astute observation years ago. In this episode Joy & Billy talk about the impact selfishness has on marriages and parenting. After all, don’t we all want to get our way, to be first, to win? What does it take to live selflessly? While you won’t find all the answers here (far from it!), you should find plenty of things to think about and discuss with the people you “do life with.”

Talk about this:

Identify the threats -- In what environments/scenarios/seasons do you tend to become most selfish?

Identify situations where you’re most likely to be selfless.

Finally, practice doing something selfless this week – either individually or as a family.
