…* What Does It Mean To You To Live A Good Life?

...* What Does It Mean To You To Live A Good Life? | rethinked.org

“What does it mean to you to live a good life?” is a question that Jonathan Fields has been asking each of his guests in the course of his Good Life Project TV interviews. 

Good Life Project™ TV is a weekly web-show hosted by award-winning author, serial-entrepreneur and lifestyle-innovator, Jonathan Fields. 

Our guests include acclaimed entrepreneurs, artists, authors and thought leaders. The common theme is – people building deeply-meaningful businesses, bodies of work, movements and careers, as well as world-class experts. 

In the short clip below, Fields and his team have compiled the various definitions of a good life that were shared with him in the course of twenty-nine interviews and the result is a four minute shot of inspiration. Below are some of my favorite answers, but what I would really love to know is how you define a good life. For my part, my definition echoes some of the responses below–I think it’s about gratitude, presence, a sense of meaning and owning your voice, choices and desires. I think it’s also very much about constantly questioning how one defines a good life, challenging that definition, making it real. Let me know what you think …*

“A good life happens when you stop and are grateful for the ordinary moments that so many of us just steamroll over to try to find those extraordinary moments.” Brené Brown
