Friendship

Having friends is a blast. You enjoy the good times and feel loved. You might even think you have a lot of them. 

And then life goes south… You might need a helping hand or someone to talk to. Those “friends” are nowhere near. They leave at the drop of a dime and you’ve got no support. 

Having true friends is about more than the good times. If you only focus on your friends in the good, you’ll never have people around for the bad. 

In this episode, you’ll discover the meaning of true friendship in life (and the people you always want by your side).

Show Highlights Include:

  • How to avoid shallow acquaintances and find genuine friendship that lasts a lifetime. ([0:40])
  • How to tell if you have a “blessing” of a best friend (or someone who’ll leave at the drop of a dime). ([4:12])
  • Why having a ‘Haywood’ friendship gets you through your most difficult times. ([6:30])
  • The perspective of true friendship from a funeral home. ([9:46])

GUSTO

If you’ve never heard of the word ‘gusto,’ it means doing something with zest or a spark. That’s the way most of us want to live our lives.
