Indeed, it is also widely believed that how wealthy you are is a result of external factors, such as job promotions or good investments. But the surprising truth is that affluence is actually based on a certain way of thinking, one which has never before been discussed. Now, after years of working with clients of all backgrounds--including billionaires--psychologists Stephen Goldbart and Joan DiFuria reveal...

Modern culture’s worship of “how-to” pragmatism has turned us into instruments of efficiency and commerce—but we’re doing more and more about things that mean less and less. We constantly ask “how? and still struggle to find purpose and act on what matters. Instead of acting on what we know to be of importance, we wait for bosses to change, we seek the latest fad, we invest in one more degree. Asking how keeps us safe—instead of being led by our hearts into uncharted territory, we keep our heads down and stick to the rules. But we are gaining the world and losing our souls.

<p>Why do we have regrets&#8212;and what can we do about it? We all want to live a life without regrets. Whenever we do something we wish we hadn&#8217;t&#8212;or don&#8217;t do something we wish we had&#8212;we vow it won&#8217;t happen again. But why do we have regrets in the first place? Because we become prisoners of habit and circumstance, we take people in our lives for granted and fail to be true to ourselves. We stop growing and learning, become self-absorbed and judgmental, and lose touch with our innate goodness. Inspired by his final conversation with a dying friend, Marc...
