How to Quit Your Day Job and Do What You Love

I was working a corporate job as a marketing manager for a high-end real estate law firm in Newport Beach, California, good money, but all I had was the vaguest notion there was something more out there than what I was living - something that would fulfill me professionally, give me more autonomy, and pay for some of the good things in life. I suppose I just wanted to be the one steering my boat, as it were, and not have someone else at the wheel. So I quit my day job.... Read More...

How to Make Time For Self-Care No Matter How Busy You Are

Busy life often leaves no time for self-care to unwind and de-stress. Half of us are running on an empty tank, stretching ourselves too thin which affects our work, our relationships, and our overall well-being. But guess what, as silly as it sounds, we can't pour from an empty cup and truly be there for others when we can't even take care of our needs. Failing to give yourself the attention you deserve can cause a lot of problems in the long run. However, it does not have to be this way, since you can always make time for self-care....

It’s Time to Put Emotional Fitness on The Curriculum

I often worry about the younger generation and all the pollution they have to take care of. The seas, the air, the digital landscape: nothing is easy about navigating those issues, and we still don’t teach resilience, mental strength and emotional strategies at schools – right where they SHOULD be taught. Emotional fitness is your best armor against all of life’s challenges. When you’re emotionally fit, there’s nothing that can throw you off course because you’ve cultivated the inner-strength to block difficulties from infiltrating your mission and affecting your purpose....

How to Overcome Risk Aversion in Life

What makes people prone to risk aversion in life? Recently I was speaking to a friend, in her early 40s, who commented that she gets older, the more she's scared of taking a risk. She figured that she has MORE to lose now, and the thought of doing something bold, like quitting her job, following her dreams, or taking bigger actions just became more and more daunting. And it's a common complaint. We refer to people who are young as 'young, free and single,' and we tell them to 'do it while you can.' But it's not a complaint I agree with.... Read More...

This Phrase Will Help You Overcome all Your Fears

Our desire to protect ourselves can be both our strength and growing edge, at the same time. My fear is my strength when it acts as an inner safety manager and allows me to protect myself from people and situations that might hurt me. My fear becomes my growing edge when I permit it to keep me from making career and personal choices that are life-giving. Our fear can serve us well in life, as long as we don’t let it control all our decisions.... Read More...

One Simple Reason WHY Most People Never Get What They Want

Your dream job. Financial freedom. More awesome mates. A great relationship. Location independence. A drop-dead healthy and stunning body. World peace.

5 Reasons Limiting Screen-Time Will Benefit Your Health

In this day and age, nearly all aspects of our lives are digitalized. Everything must be recorded, Snapchatted, tweeted or Instagrammed. People are even obsessed with sharing pictures of the food they eat at restaurants (they won’t even touch their food without getting a picture.) It’s hard to put the finger on when we started being so dependable on our phones.
