#WorkTrends Recap: Build a Rich and Successful Life

So many of us lose sight of our dreams and what really makes us happy as we go through the mundane parts of life. How can we shift our outlook and remind ourselves of our dreams?

On this week’s #WorkTrends show, we were joined by Christopher Cumby, author of The Success Playbook, to discuss how to build a rich and happy life.

Chris shared what he defines as the fundamental basics to moving the needle in life. He also discussed the keys to understanding who you are and how to identify the greatest opportunities.

Here are a few other key points Chris shared:

  • Don’t lose your imagination as an adult
  • The first person you should always listen to is yourself
  • It only takes one step to get out of your comfort zone
