Material success doesn’t necessarily lead to happiness.
In this episode of Reinvention Success Stories you’ll meet Mike Allen, who experienced enormous career success and had all the material possessions to prove it. But, there was an emptiness inside that money, a big house, and grown-up toys couldn’t fill.
He traveled whenever he could and began to pay attention to the places where he found his happiness. This led him to Caye Caulker, Belize. Today he is the owner and manager of Island Oasis Resort providing others with a magnificent place to visit as they find their happy.
During this episode we focus on:
- What really makes you happy
- The importance of exploring
- Being where you want to be
- Doing what may seem “crazy” to others
- Having your surroundings fit your personality
Mike’s Gem of Wisdom:
“Have a real dream. Being wealthy isn’t a real dream – what does it mean? You have to have a dream that is specific and tangible. A dream that you set goals that you can accomplish one by one. A dream is supposed to be what you really, really want – I want to be the best artist In Nicaragua. I want to be the best surfer in Australia. I want to be the best hotel owner in Mexico. It’s actually something you can achieve – and you’ll get it if you just don’t quit.”
