We’ve all heard that living with your purpose top of mind –
what we at Crucible Leadership call a life of significance – leads
to a more joyful and impactful life. But did you know it also can
lead to a longer life? Author Marta Zaraska makes an eye-opening
case for that truth in her best-seller, Growing Young: How
Friendship, Optimism and Kindness Can Help You Live to 100 – a
book steeped in science (she studied more than 600 research papers
in her research) that points to the health benefits of living life
in community and in service to others. That means those steps
you're taking to overcome your crucibles -- deepening authentic
relationships, growing in character and kindness, leaning into the
power of meditation and prayer -- can lower your mortality rate
more effectively than a fad diet or obsessing over whether you're
getting your 10,000 steps in every day.
You are more than your failures and setbacks. We share stories of leaders who have moved beyond life’s most difficult moments to lead lives of significance, and insights on how you can do the same. Hosted by Warwick Fairfax.
