Me at 12 to My Daughter at 12: A Story of Connection

BY LISA LING
@ VOL 1 ON MAR 15, 2018

Is success the key to happiness?

At one point in her life, Lisa Ling had become an accomplished martial artist, concert pianist, lawyer, and even an Action Queen, but realized that it was not making her happy. Her presentation is a letter to her daughter at 12, about what she wished she had known when she was 12-- that chasing success will not make you happy, and that it is important to let go of control and feel the love within. Now, she measures success by how much joy she had in the day, which we might also do well to emulate.
