Listener Favorites: Bruce Feiler | The New American Dream -Writing The Rules for Success on Your Terms

In this episode, we're thrilled to have Bruce Feiler, a distinguished author and speaker, who has spent his career exploring the complexities of human life. Bruce is here to discuss his latest book, "Life Is in the Transitions," and share his thoughts on the evolving concept of the American Dream.


Bruce begins by discussing the importance of storytelling in our lives. He emphasizes that our life is not a linear path but a story filled with numerous transitions. These transitions, whether they are voluntary or involuntary, are the moments that truly shape us. Bruce shares personal anecdotes and research findings to illustrate this point.


Next, Bruce delves into the concept of the American Dream. He argues that the traditional definition of success, which often involves financial stability and a steady career, is outdated. Instead, Bruce suggests that success should be defined on our own terms, based on our personal values and aspirations.


Bruce also talks about the power of community in navigating life's transitions. He highlights the importance of having a 'transition team' - a group of people who can provide support and guidance during challenging times.


Finally, Bruce shares his thoughts on resilience. He believes that resilience is not about bouncing back to where you were before a transition, but about growing and evolving through the experience.


Tune in to this enlightening conversation with Bruce Feiler and redefine your concept of success. Remember, your American Dream is for you to define.
