We asked some of the happiest folks we know to tell us their secret.

Marina Yanay-Triner | Transformational Coach

Growth! I used to prioritize “success” in the traditional sense of making lots of money and being well known in my niche. The problem with that was that I always had to chase it: one day I was on top of the world, the next day I was completely depressed and feeling unworthy. So I switched my mindset to really valuing growth. This means that sometimes, even when I technically don’t get my goal, if I feel like I received a lesson or it was a growth edge for me, it makes me happy! If I can sense that I responded to the same situation in a more powerful way than before, this is growth. This is such a powerful way to experience life, and it keeps me feeling incredibly fulfilled.

What makes me happy is knowing that my creative works effect people in the most positive and uplifting way. If I can produce a piece of music that brings people sincere joy, it makes me feel accomplished. Every day is a journey to purify my intentions and keep unwavering vision alive in my heart. “Light Up The World” is a motto that circulates throughout all of my creations and returns back to my heart with so much gratitude and joy.

What makes me the happiest is my family. I believe that having a strong foundation drives me and pushes me to be successful in every aspect of my life. My whole life I have been backed by the strongest women and now I have an incredibly kind husband who holds me up when I need it. My family is my world and they make me happy to know I have people on my team who genuinely want the best for me. That kind of comfort and foundation has shaped me into who I am, keeps me motivated, and extremely happy. Read more>>
