Episode 03: Contemplating Happiness

Today’s episode discusses happiness and the 6 human needs. It is a podcast episode designed to get you thinking.

The Six Human Needs

1. Certainty: assurance you can avoid pain and gain pleasure

2. Uncertainty/Variety: the need for the unknown, change, new stimuli

3. Significance: feeling unique, important, special or needed

4. Connection/Love: a strong feeling of closeness or union with someone or something

5. Growth: an expansion of capacity, capability or understanding

6. Contribution: a sense of service and focus on helping, giving to and supporting others

And so, the ultimate pending question of what is happiness? I truly hope that you will think on your happiness and what motivates you.
