In these ‘Moment’ episodes of my podcast, I’ll be selecting my favourite moments from previous episodes of The Diary Of A CEO.
In this episode we go back to a moment from one of my favourite episodes with Mo Gawdat. Mo has co-founded over 20 businesses, he’s the author of the ground-breaking ‘Solve for Happy’ and he was chief business officer of the pioneering wing of google, Google X, the ‘moonshot factory’ where they work on all the latest technologies like self-driving cars and robots.

But most importantly, Mo has learnt perspective about life. When his son died, this sent him on an incredible journey to look within himself and find the ‘happiness equation’, a simple technique that can help us all reduce our unhappiness and appreciate life, and ourselves, more.

Mo Gawdat’s episode simply blew me away. There were so many hard-hitting truths which he exposed about happiness, but this clip might just have the best of them all.

Happiness is a choice. This is something not everyone is willing to accept. But as you’ll hear in this moment episode, you can only be happy once you choose to be.
