YAPLive: Unlocking True Happiness with Laura Day and Amy Green Smith | Cut Version
We all want to be happy, but what does happiness really mean and can anyone achieve it? Happiness experts Laura Day and Amy Green Smith believe so, but happiness is something that must be nourished and cultivated. Being happy doesn’t mean that you won’t ever be upset, sad, or frustrated, but instead that you’ll be better able to cope with these emotions and have a better life overall. Happiness is something you practice by setting boundaries, making connections, and identifying value and purpose. In this episode, Hala, Amy, and Laura talk about what happiness means and how it can be achieved, define empowered realistic thinking, discuss intuition and how to hone it, talk about setting boundaries, and the relationships between happiness, purpose, and values.

Welcome to the show, Young and Profiters!
Do you ever feel like happiness is unattainable?
Like you have brief moments of joy but “true happiness” just isn’t showing up for you?
Over the last couple of years, this seems to be happening to a lot of people.
So, I thought this was the perfect time to share this clip of a previous Clubhouse Live from July 2021, covering all things happiness!
We cut this replay episode down to the best parts so you can listen, learn and profit faster.
In this episode, I’m joined by two experts, Laura Day and Amy Green Smith.
You may know Laura as the “Psychic to the Stars,” but she is also a bestselling author, international speaker, and corporate advisor for Fortune 500 companies. And Amy is a certified and credentialed life coach and hypnotherapist, keynote speaker, and personal empowerment expert. She is also the host of the Bold-Faced Truth Podcast.
Amy and Laura have spent decades studying and teaching about happiness. As they see it, happiness is something you practice and cultivate by setting boundaries, making connections, and identifying your value and purpose.
In this episode, we go deep on all things happiness. We define happiness, talk about empowered realistic thinking, give tips on how to ignite your intuition, and discuss the role of boundaries, how to set them, and so much more.
So, if you’re feeling like you’re lacking true happiness, having trouble setting boundaries, or feeling unfulfilled, this is the episode for you!
Let’s get right into it!

Wasn’t that awesome?!
Laura and Amy are so great, and I love how they both shared real-life examples of how they use these very tactics to set boundaries and achieve happiness in their own lives. This serves as another reminder that happiness is something we must cultivate and feed each day.
There is so much great advice and knowledge in this episode. So, let’s recap some key takeaways.
The first is to set boundaries. We talked about how self-worth is dependent on boundaries. When you lack boundaries, you’re subconsciously placing more value on the opinions and needs of others over your own. Of course, a lack of boundaries is going to lead to unhappiness!
So how do you start setting boundaries? Amy says the first step is to just buy time. If you’re feeling pressured to make a decision, simply ask for time or space. Setting this boundary allows you to collect your thoughts and actually consider what YOU want before automatically agreeing. Also, practice honesty about your needs and voice these needs to your loved ones and coworkers. If people don’t know what your boundaries are, of course they will overstep! Think about what you need to be the best version of yourself, and let those around you know.
Next, I want to talk about cultivating happiness. Remember that value, purpose, and happiness are all connected. Check-in with yourself about what lights you up and what makes you feel fulfilled. Bring more of those things into your life. Focus on what you can control and move forward from there. Set goals and see what pops up for you when you try to accomplish them. Having purpose and value contribute greatly to overall happiness.
Lastly, let’s talk about empowered realistic thinking. We are in the age of toxic positivity, where we are told to simply dismiss our negative emotions and be happy! Now, while this may stem from good intentions, it is actually not healthy, or helpful.
This is where empowered realistic thinking comes in. Empowered realistic thinking means having awareness of our true emotions and situations. From there we can make thoughtful choices on how to move forward, instead of masking our true emotions and situations. So next time you feel like you need to just “get over it,” be honest with yourself and come up with a practical way to cope with your emotions and move on.
So, as we enter into April and are transitioning into a new season, keep the lessons from this episode in mind. Connect with others, set goals, and practice setting boundaries, see where it takes you.
