3 Simple Ways to Increase Your Peace of Mind

5 Things to Consider When You Need a Relationship Advice

Relationship advice is everywhere! It seems like every time I turn around, I hear or read someone's two cents on a relationship that isn't theirs. The more I think about it, the more I believe that exposing yourself to this information is a bad idea, unless you're getting it straight from a certified professional. It's okay to occasionally vent to loved ones or read articles that give simple relationship tips every now and then. In fact, doing so can be quite helpful and therapeutic if done in moderation. But making relationship gossip and advice seeking a habit or giving away too many details to too many people can ultimately be detrimental to an otherwise perfectly good relationship. 5 Reasons to Avoid Seeking Relationship Advice From Non-Experts......

How to Be Selfish and Happy at the Same Time

Being selfish (in a good way) is a conscious choice you can make to refrain from any action or interpretation that is harmful to you. The reality is that to be truly happy, sometimes you need to put "you" first. So, if you decide to take extra good care of yourself and be happier, become more selfish in the way you treat your Human (emotions, body, and mind.) That’s the kind of selfishness I think we can all embrace.... Read More...

How to Be Wealthy, Even When Your Wallet is Empty

We have a tendency to equate success based on what we have or what we earn. I grew up thinking the more money I had, the more successful I was, and that more was always better. I spent much of my life chasing the elusive dream, the house, car, corporate titles and earned a lot of money in the process but it was doing this that made me realize material wealth does not make me happy, in fact, it can have the opposite effect. I worked all hours to earn more money, but it left me with no time to do the things I enjoyed and to live my life, beyond the material. ... Read More...

One Fundamental Thing You Need to Know About Self Esteem

We all have fears, we all know what it's like to feel stuck in the middle without a clue what to do and how to overcome that wall and to move forward. We all have fears undoubtedly, but this doesn't mean that we have to sit still in one place and be overtaken by mould while fear keeps us from taking action... It is irrelevant how tall that fire-wall of fear might be – we can make our breakthrough as long as we understand that it's up to us really. We can build our self-confidence brick by brick, one step at a time. And every little achievement on that journey will reinforce new achievements, therefore, new self-confidence to move on and beyond what we aspire to or think is possible.... Read More...

How to Let Go of the Burdens That Hold You Back

When you think of the phrase 'letting go', it conjures up all sorts of images, thoughts and feelings doesn't it? Freedom, free falling, a sigh of relief, moving forwards, uncertainly - all kinds of things. Learning to know how and when to let go has been a big one for me. Letting go ultimately enables me to stress less, sleep more, feel free and just 'be'. It also brings up fear and uncertainty but for me, that's much better than the stress, angst and anxiety of clinging on. The thing about letting go is that in today's society we're not really conditioned to embrace it. It's all about being proactive and making stuff happen. Also, as someone building a business, there are many things I need to do and goals to achieve and 'letting go' doesn't really support that notion of work, work, work until you succeed! However, what I have found - in all areas of life actually, is that by letting go you let in all the things that in some weird, mystical or mysterious way, work for you so that all that graft doesn't feel quite so much like the 'sweat, blood and tears' we apparently need to endure to get things done....
