3 paths to more meaning (and money)

“If you are making money doing what you love, you with be both mentally and financially wealthy.”

~ Philip McKernan

There is an obsession we have as humans with the notion of being happy and chasing happiness.

The flaw in that endeavor is that 99% of people either don’t know what their happiness is, or they have convinced themselves of some intellectual definition of happiness. Some of these examples can range from achieving goals like building their business up, getting financially free, or taking more time off of work.

Are these things that they need as a human being that feeds their soul and will help them achieve the depth of happiness inside that’s readily waiting? Or are these goals that they’ve simply drummed up in their head, or read about in a book, or envied about someone else’s life?

Most people achieve these surface-level goals and wind up disappointed to find that it’s greeted with emptiness. Which more times than not, results in the furthering of this cycle of looking for the next deal, building bigger, achieving more. All the while never achieving happiness.

Rich On Paper Poor On Life focuses on how integrating and building meaning into various areas of your life results in the by-product of the happiness that you were ultimately looking for.

Philip was interviewed recently about his new book and finding meaning in YOUR LIFE.

In the interview Barry McDonagh and Philip talked about the difference between Passion and Meaning and how excitement can confuse us.

He says what needs to be said, not what's popular or what sells the best.

I can't vouch for how attractive he is - because he's not - but he's changed my life and the lives of the important people around me more than anyone else I know. He's not a "big name" in the personal development space, but that's by design. He says what needs to be said, not what's popular or what sells the best. Not sure he knows what an A/B test even is. But he's unlocked the secret to happiness in life better than anyone I know, including most of the "big names" who are clueless when it comes to being authentic. Anyone who's looking for powerful and honest insight into why they aren't where they want to be, go and get this book.

This is a book that's important in society

The last few years we have made some big shifts in our life. Although a lot of them were scary as all hell, we had the help and encouragement of my coach, mentor and friend Philip McKernan. His passion to help people see a different way is awesome, and he has written a book that I feel is important to today's society. I'd encourage you to give yourself a gift order one today.

Amazing and inspiring book !

My personal mentor's book just hit Amazon ... and it truly puts things into perspective (to say the least!) when it comes to taking an honest look at your own life and your own levels of fulfillment, happiness and purpose. If you know intuitively that your life hasn't quite panned out the way you hoped it had, or if you feel something is missing, or if you feel like you deserve more in life, do yourself the favor and give it a read. I'm pretty certain you'll be glad you did.

As an entrepreneur, I highly recommend you get this book. I suffered extreme bouts of depression, The good, the bad, the ugly. And I can tell you this; Rich on Paper: Poor on life hits home from me. Philip is a NO bulls*** type of guy, with a hint a old school Irish humor. He tells you, as it is. Let me ask you these questions...Are you fed you with your job? Does you job make you happy? And what would you do if money was not an issue? Well my friend, theses are the exact questions Philip answers. I give this book 5/5 stars and HIGHLY recommend it too all!

The wisest investment is wisdom…

And this book is full of it! Philip is an incredibly genuine man, and it shows in his writing. In a sea of "make money while you sleep" type books, Rich on Paper, Poor on Life is a refreshing read for those who don't just want to build a business, but want to build a life.

I recently saw Phillip Speak and he had the most amazing energy and message! His Book really went into more depth of what his message is. His story was very honest and courageous, and really inspired me.I highly recommend this book. Great Job!

I heard Philip speak before I read his book, and I read the book mostly because I was incredibly impressed with his message, authenticity, and stories. This book didn't disappoint me at all. I don't think it fully captures the energy that Philip brings in person, but the book tells a lot more of his story and message, as well as the stories and lessons of his clients. I mention "happiness" in the title of this review sort of ironically. The book made me happy because I enjoyed reading it, but part of Philip's message is that we're so busy either chasing or consuming happiness, that we don't actually "be happy." It's a message that resonates well in my own life, and Philip's stories and lessons are an insightful way of helping a reader look critically and introspective at his or her own life (at least that was my experience). Unlike many similar books, there's no pretending that there's an easy answer or a simple process that can be put in place to quickly make your life perfect - something I really appreciate. Definitely recommend it if you're looking for more clarity on things like happiness, purpose, etc.

Regain your true self and stop acting

I'm about 3/4 of the way through this book, and it's already changing how I view my business, my friendships, my relationships, and my life. If you're looking for a book filled with quick tricks to make your business grow, then this isn't the book for you. This book is for people who truly want to find and work at their passions. Philip poses a lot of tough questions about ourselves and what makes us work at the business we're in, and he uses illustrations from his coaching as elucidating examples. One of my favorite parts of this book is about bucket lists. I've never made a bucket list, but if I did, I'm pretty sure it would include a bunch of things like owning a Porsche even though I dislike driving! Philip clarifies this fallacy by pointing out that these bucket lists are simply "wish lists for the generic person their authors think they'd like to be" rather than the person they truly are. The book is also filled with a lot of quotes from Philip, but my favorite (and something I've tried to follow throughout my life) is "In the absence of clarity, take action. " So, I hope you'll take action now and read this book 🙂

Must read for anyone who is successful but not satisfied

In a way, this book was a lifesaver for me. I was one of those guys who at first glance was totally successful. Fast life spread out around the world, profitable and growing business, lots of friends calling to hang out. But privately, I was quietly dissatisfied. I had gotten everything I thought I wanted, but failed to build a life I loved. Rich on Paper helped me get back to myself, my natural intuition, and make moves to build a life that was far more satisfying. Highly recommended.

You owe yourself a few hours with this book

Philip has an uncanny ability to cut away the layers of BS that we've wrapped around our lives. As each of the stories in this book shows, it can be difficult, unpleasant, even painful but at the end we emerge with a clearer understanding of how find happiness and true fulfillment. Although it offers simple, practical guidance this is not really a "how to" book but a "why to" book, an incitement to become our genuine selves. A highly recommended read for anyone seeking to better connect with their work, their own self and with the others in their life.

If You're At All Interested In Personal Development/Growth - - Read This Book

I saw Philip speak at Mastermind Talks in June of 2014 and he was an amazing speaker filled with wisdom. It is no surprise that his book was much of the same. The writing style was conversational and easy to read & many of the lessons were given through story, example, parable, etc. Honestly, I thought the first section of the book was just okay (maybe it simply didn't resonate with where I am right now in life) but sections 2 and 3 were life changing powerhouses. I plan on going back to this book to review all the things I stared, underlined, + the annotations I made many times in the future.

I really wish I'd met Philip 10 years ago - GREAT advice

Growing up, I always pushed to excel and make the "right" choices. Sure I was independent, but the overarching goal in my life was to be successful (usually meaning money or things). After a while, I found myself in a place where I wasn't very happy. It took a traumatic moment to gain perspective and shift my course. So - avoid all of that and read this book. The stories are inspiring and will help get you on the right path. Also, if you ever have a chance to see Philip speak - do it. He's even better in person -- genuine and engaging.
