The Skill of "Being"

High achievers listen up! Episode 28 of The Rob Scott Show is going to help you understand that achievement isn’t actually the key to being fulfilled.

During this episode, Rob and Sarah talk about the difference between skill and strategy. Strategizing and problem solving isn’t necessarily bad, and can lead to effectiveness and productivity.

However, if you let your mind be continually focused on what’s next, strategizing how to get to “there,” you’re going to miss out on the joy that’s available to you. You’ll never feel satisfied and fulfilled, no matter what you achieve.

There’s actually no “path to presence.” We’re always arrived and it’s up to us to exercise the “skill of being.” Learning to embody the present moment will let you feel more happiness and fulfillment in your being and doing.

I hope this episode gives you a breakthrough and helps you feel more joy in your life.
