Do you find yourself constantly searching for happiness, peace, and motivation? What if I told you that everything you need is already inside of you? In this episode, Baylo shares the philosophy of Phil Jackson, one of the greatest NBA coaches of all time, and his unique approach to managing big egos. Jackson believed that everything we need is already inside of us, and Barbie shares a powerful quote from Robert Persig that emphasizes this point: “The happiness you find at the top of the mountain is the happiness you brought with you.”
Baylor encourages listeners to stop relying on external sources to find happiness and instead focus on finding it within themselves.

By changing their perspective and focusing on the good in their life, listeners can find peace and happiness in any situation.
