This talk was recorded November 17, 2020 during Beyond U Conference by Power Purpose Play. Is happiness after midlife a myth? ✨ According to the U-Curve of Happiness - a theory that our life satisfaction drops to its lowest point in midlife, and begins its recovery around age 50 - the answer is NO. ✨At Power Purpose Play we want to flip the script from midlife "crisis" to midlife reinvention. This is the time to fearlessly embrace all of our talents and creativity, to make midlife (and beyond) our best life. The Beyond U Conference will empower you to recognize your innate strengths and talents to embrace a life of renewed purpose - to go BEYOND the U you are today.
